This morning our Fire Conference came to a conclusion as Peter Vandenberg and I ministered to about 10,000 delegates – pastors and leaders from the region. We prayed, as usual, for them to receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It was glorious! I believe a spark of revival has been lit here in Bouaké, Ivory Coast, that will continue with the local Body of Christ long after we’ve gone.
It was another huge day here in Bouaké, Ivory Coast. The crowd more than doubled tonight. I preached about the power in the blood of Jesus, and the response was overwhelming. So many people gave their lives to the Lord!
The first night of our Gospel campaign here in Boauké, Ivory Coast has just ended minutes ago. I am so amazed by the level of hunger and expectancy in this small place. As I preached, there was an overwhelming response from the people who were hanging on every word.
Watch this video of Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and Peter van den Berg, who, along with other members of the CfaN Team, recently arrived in Boauké , Ivory Coast. This is the first time CfaN has been back to the Ivory Coast since 1991, where the average age is only 18 years old!
We’ve just received word from our team on the ground in Ghana where our most recent Gospel Crusade took place in the cities of Tema and Ashaiman. The decision cards have all been counted and I am thrilled to report that 381,610 people responded to the Gospel receiving Jesus Christ as Savior over the four days of meetings with over 710,000 attending. Praise the Lord! They have now been entered into the follow up system where local churches are actively working to disciple them. Thank you for your prayers and gifts that made this possible!
I’m coming to you on the last night of the final meeting of our Gospel Campaign here in Tema - Ashaiman, Ghana where over 300,000 people flooded the field - a reclaimed garbage dump. There could not have been a more appropriate site for the redemption miracle that took place this week. Many thousands of people were saved, healed, delivered and baptized into the Holy Spirit.
We experienced a wonderful outpouring of the Holy Spirit, both in the Fire Conference this morning and in the Gospel Crusade tonight here in Tema- Ashaiman, Ghana which was attended by 200,000 people!
When you see the beautiful pictures of the massive crowd it’s easy to forget that we are meeting on a dumpsite.
Today our Gospel Crusade began here in Ghana, West Africa. There has been so much interest in the region that we have full working committees in two cities; Tema and Ashaiman. It’s almost like two crusades happening simultaneously. This is something we have never done before.
