Operation Decapolis – Zambia
SIX Witchdoctors meet Jesus!
Over the next couple months, I’ll be sharing more of the wonderful testimonies and reports pouring in from each of the locations where we just completed ELEVEN 5-night Gospel Campaign in Zambia. Can you imagine what a tsunami of glorious stories of God’s power that unleashed? We’re starting with Chingola, where Evangelists Randy Roberts and Lukas Repert (both Bootcamp graduates who were trained by me) were stationed.
Our Gospel Campaign director, Brady Liette, had a major battle with the city over cutting these trees down. They were terrified that the people would be furious and cause chaos. Fortunately, one of the leading local bishops, who was our Gospel Campaign chairman, is good friends with the President of Zambia. He instructed the mayor to allow us to cut them down. When they did, the top witchdoctor, also known as a stone dealer, went crazy with grief and then disappeared... for a while.
Fast forward to Friday night of the Gospel Campaign. That same stone dealer, whose name is Datsun, heard the invitation, came to the Gospel Campaign with some of his juju, and put it in the barrels! Unfortunately, he didn’t put it all in and had not yet received Jesus, so he was demonically tormented all night when he went home. On Saturday, he brought the rest. We helped him take it off his body and burn it. Then were able to preach the Gospel to him, and he got saved.
We rejoiced over what Jesus had done in his life and asked him to go up on stage and share his testimony. Then my friend evangelist Lukas Repert laid hands on him and he was slain in the spirit. Hallelujah!
Shortly after that someone came from the side of the stage to tell me that there were five more witch doctors who had heard Datsun give his testimony. They wanted to talk to me and give their lives to Jesus as well! So I went and preached the Gospel to them, led them in the salvation prayer, and then handed them over to the same bishops who were a little concerned with my initial invitation. Needless to say, they had a whole new, positive attitude toward the situation!
Evangelist Lukas Repert shares:
To me, the most amazing thing by far that God did was to heal a 2-year-old child who had a tumor the size of an apple on the outside of his head. This visibly melted back to a few centimeters during the healing prayer! The mother came to us in tears and reported what had happened.
On the second night, Daniel Kolenda preached. I love it when the Holy Spirit’s leading is suddenly made visible. Daniel Kolenda's topic was Zacchaeus and while he was talking about Zacchaeus being too small to see Jesus and having to climb a tree, suddenly everyone on the field noticed that there were about 20 or more children sitting in a tree next to the stage! It was a perfect illustration of the message.
After that Randy Roberts prayed for all the sick and mighty signs and wonders happened. God showed so many people at once how much he loves them! At one moment I saw 4 wheelchairs in the field at the same time, no longer needed.
A young girl whose side was covered with scars from failed surgeries was able to raise her arm for the first time and will now be able to fend for herself and no longer need the help of others.
Thank you, with all my heart, to every partner who has brought us this far. Isn’t it incredible that we have been able to do eleven Gospel Campaigns for practically the same cost as a single Gospel Campaign in the past? Your donations are truly being multiplied!
Keep an eye out for the second praise report from another 5-night campaign in Zambia, coming your way next way next week…
Together with you for the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
