Dear Mission Partners,
Tonight the crowd more than doubled to 240,000. Have a look at the pictures. You will notice that the field is actually two hills with a huge ravine between them. Both sides were packed with people. Peter van den Berg walked all the way to the far side of the fields and told me that he had great difficulty getting back because of the density of the crowd. These are awesome dynamics.
When we left the hotel for the crusade tonight, the rain was pouring down. I must admit, I was getting concerned. But soon we made a wonderful discovery – the crusade field was completely dry. We were praising the Lord.
I preached about the blood of Jesus tonight. Many thousands responded to the Gospel and then we broke the curses and burned fetishes, amulets, idols & charms given to the people by witchdoctors. Then I prayed for the sick and so many miracles happened:
We heard the testimony of a man who has been paralyzed for the last 3 years because of a stroke and was healed. He was carried to the meeting last night, but when it was time to leave no one could find him. After the prayer for the sick, he had gotten up and walked five miles to his house. When his wife arrived home, she found him in bed already!
A young woman who was blind in her right eye for 12 years was healed along with a seven-year-old boy who was born deaf and dumb. It was so precious to hear him say “Mama” for the first time in his life tonight.
A man who could not walk without a stick was healed. After the prayer for the sick, he started running, not walking. Also a woman who was paralyzed on the left side for 10 years received full use of her left arm and leg tonight. Her daughter came with her to testify. She said that for the last 10 years, she has been bathing and dressing her mother because she was unable to do it herself. But tonight she was healed. They embraced and beamed with joy on the platform. Praise the Lord!
Tomorrow is the final day of Fire Conference. Many top pastors and leaders of the Church in Ghana are attending. We will pray for them to receive the fire of the Holy Spirit. When these pastors are touched, they have the potential to touch thousands of others. Please continue to pray for us.
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Reinhard Bonnke, Peter van den Berg and the whole CfaN team
