We are off to a great start here in Sunyani, Ghana. When we arrived yesterday afternoon we could already feel the electricity in the air. Everywhere we went, we were welcomed by enthusiastic crowds, the media, the local authorities and even the traditional king.
The city of Sunyani arose as an outpost camp for elephant hunters during the 19th century and the name Sunyani derives from the Akan word for elephant "Osono". In 1924, The British Empire government designated Sunyani as a district headquarters. Sunyani is the capital of the Brong-Ahafo region, which is one of ten regions in Ghana.
I’ve just returned from the field here in Mbeya, Tanzania. Today has been a day of Holy Spirit outpouring both this morning and again tonight. This morning, pastors and leaders from the region gathered before the sun came up on a Saturday morning.
What a glorious day we have had here in Mbeya, Tanzania. Tonight, I preached on the Blood of Jesus. Thousands responded to the Gospel. We broke curses. We burned drums filled with idols and witchcraft fetishes like they did in Acts 19.
The journey to Mbeya, Tanzania has been very long and physically exhausting, but we have finally arrived. These beautiful hillsides will soon ring with the Gospel and multitudes will gather as they did in Galilee 2000 years ago. That same Jesus will meet them here and change their lives forever. The crusade starts here in a few hours. Please pray for me, for our whole team and for the people of Mbeya!
