The third and final week of the CfaN Bootcamp Initiation has come to a close. What a powerful and life-changing 3 weeks it has been, not only for the Bootcamp Graduates and coaches, but for the thousands of people who received salvation, healing, and deliverance (over 165,000 salvations)! The cities in Tanzania have been rocked by the Gospel, and we are excited for our upcoming crusades in Tanzania in November!

As a conclusion to our first Bootcamp Initiation Trip, I would like to share with you a recap from our Administrative Dean, Levi Stewart:
“Nothing about this trip has been normal. Originally scheduled for Nairobi Kenya this summer, we have seen this initiation postponed multiple times, relocated to a different country, and even had a number of participants forced to withdraw due to global travel restrictions. There were several times over the last few months that I had serious doubts about the trip even happening in 2020. But God has made a way.
As our partners and supporters, you have seen the reports of the tremendous fruit that our teams’ evangelistic efforts here have produced over the last three weeks. They tell the amazing story of salvation, healing, and deliverance; to God be the glory! As a trip manager, I have been able to see what goes on behind the curtain and “under the hood” of this fiery, gospel-preaching machine.
Hopping around from truck to truck, village to marketplace, back to the hotel in debrief meetings and in the dining hall, I am encouraging all of these passionate evangelists to remember their training, submit their assignments, and to please drink lots of water! It just never stops. Our evangelism mechanism has been in perpetual motion here every day, from 6 AM to well after midnight. But one thing that has remained constant, in the midst of all of this wonderful, God-ordained activity is a reliance on the work of prayer.
A part of the Evangelism Bootcamp culture from the very beginning, these ministry graduates have been challenged to understand and experience the sustaining power of communicating with our God. In fact, two of the five Orlando classroom hours every day were dedicated to prayer, and here on the field, its centrality to everything we do has increased even more.
All of our outreach teams intercede each morning before hitting the road, then pray for people all over the villages, markets, and schools of Tanzania throughout the day, before thanking and praising God every night after sharing testimonies and stories at the hotel. A couple of days ago, I actually had the opportunity to attend three bootcamp team prayer meetings before 9 AM! One of the most memorable experiences in Tanzania for me was taking part in our second week’s Sunday evening prayer and communion service where God met us with His sweet, refreshing presence at such a strategic moment.
I am so grateful for you standing and joining with us as we have prayed. Prayer has truly been the fuel that has powered, and continues to propel, our gospel harvester here in Tanzania and we have felt your prayerful support all along the way. On this, our final day of evangelism outreaches here, I want to tell you how much I appreciate each of you covering us with your prayers. Despite so many challenges faced, together we have seen God make a way for His gospel here in East Africa through His amazing power – and through the never-failing power of prayer. Thank you. Grace and Peace, Levi Stewart”
We are thanking the Lord for His faithfulness, even in the midst of the global difficulties.
Thank you for standing with us in prayer as we press on in this Decade of Double Harvest – we could not do it without you.
These are exciting days! The best is yet to come in Jesus name!
“God wants everyone to be saved and to fully understand the truth. There is only one God, and there is only one way that people can reach God. That way is through Christ Jesus, who as a man gave himself to pay for everyone to be free.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6 ERV)
