Operation Decapolis

Decapolis means “ten cities.” Working together with the CfaN co-evangelists, we conduct 10 campaigns in ten cities over a two-week period. We have decided, due to the Corona measures in Kenya, to move to the neighboring country Tanzania and start “Decapolis” there with 5 campaigns within 2 weeks. The evangelistic outreaches in Kenya have been postponed to 2021.

Day 4 – Singida, Tanzania

A Glorious Conclusion

Dear Missions Partners,

It’s been one week since we reached the conclusion of our Decapolis outreaches, and what a glorious conclusion it was! Our team is excitedly counting the decision cards, the local churches are ushering in the new converts and discipling them, and we are praising God for all He has done and thanking you for your tremendous support!

For this Missions Journal, I want to share the report from our final night in Singida, Tanzania and tomorrow I will send my report from our campaign in Arusha. 

In Singida, we had guest evangelist, Paul Maurer, preach a powerful gospel message and we had our Bootcamp graduates pray for healing and record testimonies.

Please read below reports from Evangelists Paul Maurer and Gary Smith. Look out for tomorrow’s final Missions Journal on our last night in Arusha, Tanzania!

This is all possible because of you! Thank you! 

Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Together with Peter Vandenberg and the whole CfaN team

Day 4 – Singida, Tanzania

From Evangelist Paul Maurer:

“Tonight the campaign drew to a glorious conclusion! People came wanting a touch from God, and the crowd grew substantially. In my message tonight, I asked the people the following question and formed my message around it: “What are you going to do with Jesus, who is called the Christ?” I said, “every man, woman, and child must answer this question in their lifetime.” At the end of my message, I gave them an opportunity to repent of their sins and make Jesus the Lord of their life, and I was amazed at the response. Many thousands raised their hand to give their life to Christ! More Muslims came to faith in Jesus tonight as well! I heard testimonies from this morning that the churches were already seeing new converts from the campaign! I love the emphasis that CfaN puts on follow-up, discipleship, and getting the people plugged into the local churches. Tonight, I noticed that the deliverance tent was again overflowing with people getting set free from demonic spirits. So many precious people received deliverance and healing this week! After I did a teaching on faith, three Bootcamp graduates (Joshua Hall, Michael-Seth Clifton and Jacob Ebersole) helped me pray for the sick, and the Lord did mighty miracles! I had a word of knowledge that tumors and growths were dissolving tonight, and it was a common theme that many tumors and growths disappeared in the name of Jesus!

To be able to minister at this campaign as a guest evangelist was the honor of a lifetime. I am so thankful to Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and the entire Christ for all Nations team! They work so hard to reach the lost. This week we saw the kingdom displayed with power, and I know the city of Singida will never be the same!”

Day 4 – Singida, Tanzania

From Evangelist Gary Smith:

“Tonight was the last night of the campaign in Singida, Tanzania. The last two weeks have been absolutely incredible with thousands of salvations, miracles, and people filled with the Holy Spirit. I am leaving Singida rejoicing in all that the Lord has done. I’ve heard several testimonies from the Bishops and Pastors today who are overjoyed as many new believers joined their church this morning. This is worth every dollar spent and every day away from family, to see people saved and planted into the local church. It’s not just making converts but to make mighty disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ! Hallelujah!

Evangelist Paul Maurer preached an incredible and powerful message tonight. Around 15,000 were in attendance tonight as the meetings grew in attendance from night to night. When Evangelist Paul Maurer asked for those who wanted to ask Jesus to be Lord of their life, hands were raised all over the field. Again tonight, as with the past three nights, many Muslims were in attendance and asked Jesus into their life - Glory to God! There is such sweet joy in the people in the city of Singida. People did not want to leave the field once the service was over. The hunger of the people to receive more from the Lord is something you cannot describe. Family members were bringing me pictures and clothing items; they were even praying over the phone for their loved ones. 

As I sit in my room tonight, I reflect on the faces of the people...night after night, they race through my mind...I see them encountering the Lord. It reminds me of the day I met my Lord and Savior! A day the people of Tanzania will never forget. 

Jacob Ebersole, Michael-Seth Clifton and Joshua Hall, three of the evangelism Bootcamp graduates, prayed for healing tonight, and many were healed. Here are some of the testimonies: 

  • A lady had a growth on her neck for two years, and after healing prayer, it is now completely gone! She had much pain and could not eat well or swallow. Now there is no more pain! She easily took a drink of water and without pain. 
  • A lady had a tumor on her left breast. She felt power passing through her body as she was healed. Since 2010 the tumor has caused her much pain. She now cannot find the tumor and has no more pain! 
  • Another lady was healed of a chest problem. She used many different medicines, but none worked. She had terrible pain in her chest for two years, and tonight was the first time she was without pain. 
  • A lady had pain in her left side and back for two years. On the first day of the campaign Evangelist Daniel Kolenda told the crowd to check their body, and when she checked her body, she was able to move in previously impossible ways. Yesterday she worked for the first time in two years and was very happy. Tonight she said God had completed her healing, and now she has no pain. 
  • A man with a leg injury for three months received healing on the second day of the campaign. He says his foot felt like it was on fire and had much pain before the campaign, and he could not walk. Tonight he jumped on the stage with no pain at all! 
  • A lady was healed of a leg injury of ten years! She was here the first day of the campaign, but tonight she was completely healed of the pain in her leg! She felt a blessing over her when we prayed. Both legs were hurting, but tonight she has walked and moved with no pain! 
  • A lady broke her arm and could not move her wrist or arm, but yesterday she was healed and able to carry her baby for the first time. She felt a cold go into her hand and all the pain left! 
  • A lady had pain in her legs for 17 years! She had swelling in her legs and had much pain, but tonight all the swelling went down, and she felt a rushing cold go into her legs when we prayed. Tonight all the pain has gone in both legs, and she danced on stage! 
  • A lady (wearing the covering of a Muslim) named Loveness was born with intense pain in her back, stomach, and head! Tonight she was completely healed, and all the pain has left her body! Before, she could not bend over, but tonight she demonstrated that she could now bend and move with no pain at all! She came as a Muslim, but tonight she has received Jesus! She shouted on stage, “Jesus is Lord!” 
  • An older lady named Moshi Shabani came with terrible pain in her head since 1989. “I came in with my head so heavy, but now I feel so light!” Her body felt relaxed when she felt a rushing, cold wind over her body and all the pain left her! She danced on stage and rejoiced. She shouted, “hallelujah!” 

Day 3 – Arusha, Tanzania

The harvest is now!

Tonight concludes night three of our second week of campaign meetings in Arusha and Singida but also our tenth day in Tanzania, where we’ve been preaching the gospel in multiple cities through our ‘Operation Decapolis’ initiative. You may have heard me speak about how in 2017, I felt in my heart that over the next ten years or so, God would double the number of souls saved that we had seen in the previous 30 years, to well over 150 million.

And my friend, right now we are witnessing just one of the initiatives that will be implemented to fulfill this vision. It is a supernatural acceleration of the harvest in this crucial hour of history! We are praising God for all He has done the last ten days and are filled with expectancy for our last day of meetings tomorrow. Please pray for the people of Arusha and Singida, that more people will come to the meetings and be saved, healed, and delivered in Jesus’ Name!

In this Missions Journal, I will share with you the reports from Singida from Evangelists Gary Smith and Paul Maurer, along with the healing testimonies that were reported in Arusha.

Tomorrow concludes our very first Operation Decapolis here in Tanzania, and we are very expectant for all that God is going to do. Thank you for your faithful support and prayer! More to come tomorrow!

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
together with Peter Vandenberg and the whole CfaN team

A lady with asthma who had to use a breathing pump multiple times a day was healed by God on the first night and testified she hasn’t used the pump for three days.”

A man that was paralyzed on the right side of his body for the last three years from seizures was completely healed and danced along as we worshiped God for his healing.

Day 3 – Arusha, Tanzania

Testimonies

  • A lady with a brain tumor that had caused her continuous pain for over six years, was healed. She testified that all the pain was gone in Jesus' name. 
  • A lady that had taken diabetes medication for over 20 years felt the power of God on Thursday night. She went to the doctor after the meeting and testified tonight that the doctor's report said her sugar levels were normal.
  • Another lady who had suffered from high blood pressure for ten years; was touched by God on the first night. Since then, she went to the doctor, who verified that she was healed and her pressure has been stable with no medications. 

Day 3 – From Evangelist Gary Smith

Singida, Tanzania

“The power of God filled the people of Singida, and they will never be the same again! Tonight was the third night of the four-day campaign. We started the meeting off burning more witchcraft paraphernalia and declared that Jesus was Lord over Singida. As I preached the simple message of salvation many people were set free from demons. When I gave the invitation for salvation, hands were lifted high all over the field as they raised their voices and asked Jesus to be Lord of their life.

I am still in awe of all the people who have asked Jesus into their life, turning from darkness and to the glorious light! We have seen so many Muslims accepting Jesus. It is beautiful to see the smiles on their faces. Not only have we witnessed thousands of salvations, but tonight we prayed for the people to be filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was so powerful, people all over the field were crying, shaking, and speaking in tongues. I don’t even know how to describe in words what the Lord did tonight. I am still in awe of the Lord's goodness. He loves His people so much and wants them to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and that is what happened tonight!!

Lilliana Alvarado, a CfaN Bootcamp graduate, and I prayed for healing. When we asked the crowd if they had received healing to raise their hands, all over the field hands were lifted high, and people were rejoicing in what the Lord had done. Here are a few of the testimonies:

  • A Muslim lady who gave her life to Christ tonight was in a lot of pain because of arm problems. She didn’t want to share publicly what happened, but it appeared that her arm was severely burned. Tonight, during prayer, she said she felt coldness go into her arm, and now all the pain was gone! Jesus healed her. 
  • A lady had pain in her leg for 15 years, and she could not walk properly. After prayer, she can now lift her knees and walk. She said that Jesus completely healed her.
  • Another lady had multiple things wrong with her. She had stomach problems, and she had lots of pain in her legs and feet. She also had a tumor on her left side. During healing prayer, the tumor left, and all the pain was gone! She was completely healed. 
  • A lady had pain for five years in her abdomen. The pain was very bad and so she had surgery one year ago. She said there were complications with the surgery, and the pain didn’t get any better. She said she was always in constant pain. Tonight, Jesus healed her and all the pain left.
  • Three people testified that they were in severe pain because of headaches. One lady said the headaches would get so painful that sometimes she couldn’t hear properly. One man said that his headaches were the result of witchcraft. Jesus touched all three of them, and they were all completely healed tonight. 

I rejoice with the people of Singida tonight for what the Lord has done! It is such an honor to be a co-evangelist with CfaN, Evangelist Daniel Kolenda, and Evangelist Paul Maurer. I would like to thank everyone for praying, fasting, and blessing CfaN financially as we continue to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. The harvest is now!”

Day 3 – From Evangelist Paul Maurer

Singida, Tanzania

“Tonight was the third night of the campaign here in Singida. It has been amazing to witness all that Jesus is doing. Each night the crowds continue to grow, and I heard tonight that before the meeting even started, people were lining up at the deliverance tent to get special prayer from the trained counselors. Evangelist Gary Smith preached a passionate message on the story of Zacchaeus. It was a powerful message that teaches redemption and how no one is beyond the saving power of Jesus Christ! Tonight thousands came to Jesus as Evangelist Gary gave the altar call.

There was a special prayer tonight for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. As Gary began to pray for this, the Holy Spirit began to work on the hearts of the people. Many were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues. It was a beautiful sight to see so many filled and touched by the Holy Spirit.

There is one more night left here in Singida! So many are being touched by the power of God! Please pray for a great harvest and for Jesus to confirm His Word with signs and wonders.”

Day 2

Arusha, Tanzania

We have just concluded another night of meetings in Arusha and Singida, Tanzania and we witnessed the full power of the Gospel in both of these cities. Thousands were saved and set free, in Jesus’ Name! God is moving and Tanzania will never be the same!

Evangelist Nathan Morris was in Arusha and Evangelist Paul Maurer was in Singida, they both preached a clear and powerful Gospel message with tenacity and fire. I want to share with you their reports from tonight, and I know you will be blessed and encouraged as you read them.

From Evangelist Nathan Morris:

ARUSHA, TANZANIA

“My heart is full as we have just finished night two in Arusha, Tanzania. There are no words to fully describe how it feels to see the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ impacting the city of Arusha! Once again, the hunger and expectancy of these precious people was tangible as they waited for the Gospel to be preached.

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda joined the campaign tonight, and it was my honor to be alongside him and the whole CfaN team. I preached the Gospel, and once again, thousands responded to the call of salvation. Oh, how awesome it is to see the Gospel at work, for it truly is the power of God unto salvation! 

The Holy Spirit moved in a mighty way as we worshipped and declared healing over the people. The testimonies of the healing power of God are increasing every night. Here are just a few of the incredible miracles we heard and saw tonight.

After a word of knowledge that God was moving in a woman's womb and that the child would not die but live, a woman testified to having three miscarriages in the past and is currently four months pregnant. After visiting the hospital, they told her that they could not find the baby's heartbeat. With tears flowing down her face, she described coming to the meeting believing for a miracle! The power of God came upon her, and she felt her baby move for the first time! Glory to God.

  • A lady who was suffering from diabetes for over 20 years testified she was healed the first night in the field. She went to the hospital this morning after waking up feeling whole, and doctors confirmed that her sugar levels were normal. 
  • A young man was healed from back problems that caused his leg to be totally numb, and he couldn't move his leg. After receiving prayer, he was running across the stage, praising God!
  • A young girl couldn't see when she came to the field tonight. God opened her eyes after six years of not being able to see. 
  • A lady came to the Gospel campaign tonight with crutches due to a broken ankle. After God touched her, she was dancing and running all over the stage, in Jesus name. 

We give God all the glory. Please keep praying for us as we continue to reap the harvest together. We thank God for this incredible privilege. Amen”

Thank you for being on this incredible journey with us! We are blessed to have your support and prayers. We have two more nights to go – please join us in believing for even greater things to come!

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Peter Vandenberg and the whole CfaN team

Day 2

Singida, Tanzania

From Evangelist Paul Maurer:

Singida, Tanzania

“Before the meeting tonight I was praying in my hotel room, “Lord your Word says that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation. I know there is power in the Gospel. I would love to see your power manifested during the message and see demonized people get set free as I share the Gospel.” Jesus answered my prayer, as this is what happened tonight! My interpreter told me that as I started preaching the word and said, “Jesus is Lord over Singida!” people began manifesting demonic spirits and were rolling around on the ground. The ushers took them to the deliverance tent, where they cast the demons out of them. This happened several times during the message. After the meeting, I went to the deliverance tent to see what was happening, and it was overflowing with people getting set free from demonic spirits!  

There are a lot of Muslims that live in this city. In fact, the city is 50% Christian and 50% Muslim. My interpreter told me that he noticed many Muslims at the campaign tonight. When I came down from the stage after speaking, two Muslim women approached me and wanted prayer for their children. I noticed that one of the women had a “Now That You Are Saved” follow up booklet on her, and I asked what had happened to her tonight, and she said that she gave her life to Jesus! The other Muslim lady told me the same thing! I even heard a testimony of a Muslim that got filled with the Holy Spirit after she gave her life to Christ. When I gave the altar call tonight, thousands surrendered their lives to Jesus. There is power in the Gospel! It was a night I will never forget.  

After I preached the Word, Evangelist Joe Turnbull (who is the local campaign director and Bootcamp graduate) did a teaching on faith, prayed for the sick, and took up testimonies. We heard some incredible testimonies of the healing power of Jesus tonight!

  • A lady came to the meeting, crawling on her knees, it was very difficult for her to stand. She had a hard time keeping fluids down as well and was vomiting. Her husband came to the campaign last night and shared what God was doing. She had a dream last night that Joe Turnbull prayed for her, and in the dream, she was completely healed. Tonight when Joe prayed, she was healed of all pain and sickness, she began to run around on the stage!
  • Another lady had been suffering with pain in her stomach and leg for eight years. Jesus touched her tonight, and she was completely healed.
  • A lady had problems with her knees for 23 years and could not walk. After healing prayer, Jesus touched her, and she started to walk. She was happy at what Jesus did for her.
  • A lady had abdominal pain for two years. The pain was so bad that she would often vomit. Jesus healed her tonight, and all the pain left.
  • A lady was burned by hot oil two years ago, and she had complications because of it. She could not bend over, and she had severe pain every night. Jesus completely healed her. All the pain left, and she can now bend over.
  • Another lady had leg pain and was completely healed.

It has been such an honor to minister here as a guest evangelist at this CfaN campaign, and I’m very thankful to Evangelist Daniel Kolenda for the opportunity. There are two more campaign nights left in Singida. Please keep us in your prayers. The harvest is ripe!”

Day 1

Arusha, Tanzania

We are right in the middle of something that is historical and significant, the Operation Decapolis! It’s the culmination of more than two years of planning in obedience to the word of the Lord. In my very first email to you last week I told you about all the exciting steps that has led to this moment. We are so grateful to have you partner with us in the Decade of Double Harvest! We are truly seeing the fruit right now, here in Tanzania.

Tonight, we began our first night of our two Gospel Campaigns taking place simultaneously in Arusha and Singida, Tanzania. In Arusha, Evangelist Nathan Morris preached a fiery Gospel message and in Singida, I preached and had Evangelist Paul Maurer with me.

Please read below a summary from Nathan’s night in Arusha and Paul’s night in Singida. I know you will be encouraged and blessed!

Thank you for praying for us here in Tanzania. More to come tomorrow!

Yours in the Gospel,

Day 1 – From Evangelist Nathan Morris

Arusha, Tanzania

“We just completed our first night in the city of Arusha, Tanzania. What an honor it is to join with Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and the CfaN team to preach this glorious Gospel! 

As I entered the field tonight, I could immediately sense the anticipation and expectancy of the large crowd that had already gathered, waiting to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I preached ‘Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world’, and thousands responded to the call of salvation. 

Almost immediately after the prayer, miracles began to happen as the Holy Spirit moved upon the precious people of Tanzania. Many people started to dance and give praise to God as they listened to each testimony of healing! 

Here is just a sample of some of the testimonies we heard tonight.

  • A lady who had been blind in her left eye for the last 14 years testified that she had regained her eyesight! She was completely healed as we tested her vision.
  • A lady was crying, declaring that the Lord had healed her right ear, which was completely deaf. She testified the power of the Holy Spirit came upon her and opened up her deaf ear.
  • A 6-year-old boy who suffered with a growth was brought up to the stage with his mother. She testified how the growth in her son had disappeared from his body! 

We give Jesus all the praise. Please keep all the team in your prayers. May we reap a mighty harvest! Amen.”

Day 1 – Arusha, Tanzania

A lady who had been blind in her left eye for the last 14 years testified that she had regained her eyesight! She was completely healed as we tested her vision.

Day 1 – Arusha, Tanzania

A lady was crying, declaring that the Lord had healed her right ear, which was completely deaf. She testified the power of the Holy Spirit came upon her and opened up her deaf ear.

Day 1 – From Evangelist Paul Maurer

Singida, Tanzania

“Yesterday I did a 30-minute live radio show here in Singida to invite everyone to the Gospel campaign. There is only one radio station in the city, and I hear that the radio is very popular here. It was a great way to invite the city to the campaign! The city is 50% Christian and 50% Muslim, so I invited all the Christians and Muslims to come to the campaign to get their miracle from God. 

Before the campaign meeting tonight Evangelist Gary Smith and I had a parade and caravan around the city. The locals were playing music as we drove through the main streets. We were waving at the people and inviting them to the campaign. The people here in Singida were so happy to see us. They are so friendly.  

Tonight, Evangelist Kolenda preached a powerful message on the blood of Jesus. He passionately told the people that the blood of Jesus cleanses us, heals us, protects us, and purchased us. He had the undivided attention of the people the whole message, and when he gave the altar call, thousands made a decision for Jesus!  

Many were healed tonight as Evangelist Kolenda prayed for the sick:

  • A lady came to the meeting with severe pain in her waist. She sold fruit in the marketplace, and it was frustrating because she could not lift the fruit and other things because of the pain. Jesus touched her at the meeting. The pain left, and she was completely healed. 
  • A lady had pain in her head and back for three months. As Daniel Kolenda was praying for the sick, she prayed, “Jesus don’t pass me by.” Soon after, all the pain disappeared, and she was healed.
  • A lady had terrible pain in the back of her foot for one year. It was so bad that when she walked to the meeting tonight she could only put weight on the front of her toes. During healing prayer, Jesus touched her and healed her. She can now walk pain-free!
  • A lady had pain in her wrist and elbow for one and a half months. She heard a word of knowledge spoken that God was healing someone’s wrist. Immediately she said she felt something more throughout her wrist and elbow, and she is completely healed.  
  • A lady said she had waist pain and had a hard time walking since June. She said that she could not even walk to the campaign on her own. Her 11-year-old son heard about the campaign and said, “Mom if you go to the campaign Jesus will heal you.” During the healing prayer, strength entered her body, and now she can walk without pain!
  • A lady could not walk and had severe pain in her legs for three years. Jesus touched her tonight, the pain left her legs, and she can now walk perfectly.
  • A young girl had severe leg and waist pain for two years. After healing prayer, all the pain left, and she was healed.
  • A lady had itchy skin for some time. It was very severe, and her whole body felt itchy. During prayer, Jesus touched her, and she stopped itching.
  • A man had severe leg pain for ten years. He would sit down, and a few minutes later, he would be in extreme pain. Jesus healed him tonight, and all the pain left.”

Day 1 – Singida, Tanzania

Right before the campaign, a big storm came through the area, and there was heavy rain.

It was pouring outside, but it didn’t stop what God wanted to do. Right before Evangelist Daniel Kolenda got up to preach, the sky cleared up, and there was no more rain.  

Tanzania

We left the previous venue and traveled 300 km to the next in Singida, Tanzania

As soon as we arrived on the field, we started offloading the container and mounting equipment like stage, lights and the sound system. The day after tomorrow, we start our meetings. Two teams went to Arusha and all are extremely busy to meet the tight deadline.

Kahama, Tanzania

“We turn to Jesus!”

In Kahama, Tanzania, I preached on the final night of the Gospel Campaign on the spiritual laws of sin, death, and salvation. We also prayed for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit! Evangelist Daniel King noted, “Across the field, people began to speak in tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.” What a sight to behold! To witness people receiving the Holy Spirit in Kahama! We continue pressing on to see Tanzania shaken by the power of the Gospel, with two more Gospel Campaigns this week in the cities of Arusha and Singida!

Day 4

Tabora, Tanzania

Day 4

Shingyanga, Tanzania

Day 4 – Kahama, Tanzania

The Lord held back the rain

Our team has travelled and made it to the cities where we will hold our next two campaigns beginning this week. As preparations are underway, I wanted to share with you the other amazing reports from our very fruitful campaigns with our guest evangelists from this past week. For tonight, I will share the reports from Evangelists Daniel King and Paul Maurer from their second to last night in Kahama, Tanzania! Please read them below:

From guest Evangelist, Daniel King:

“The third day of the campaign in Kahama, Tanzania, started with rain. As the music began, there were only a few people close to the stage. Most people were huddled around the edges of the campaign grounds trying to find shelter from the rain under overhanging roofs.

We began to pray, “God, please send rain to the farmers, but not to the campaign.” Soon, a breeze stirred and pushed the rain clouds away. When the people saw the clear sky, they left cover and ran forward to find a spot on the campaign grounds.

I preached a simple Gospel message about how God created us, how He loves us, how He came to save us and how He heals us!

When I gave the altar call, thousands of people prayed with me to receive their salvation. By lifting their hands they indicated they were ready to turn away from sin and turn toward Jesus. After the salvation prayer, the counsellors gave away copies of Reinhard Bonnke’s book, “Now that You are Saved” to all the new believers while taking down their details on the decision card for follow up. Then I talked about the final miracle – “How God Heals.”

On this special night, I also had guest evangelist Paul Maurer with me – please see his report on some of the miracle testimonies that were shared below.

Following the testimonies, the crowd danced and shouted with joy at all that God had done. I asked the people to come on the final night of the campaign to hear from Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and to bring a friend. Anticipation is high in the city of Kahama, Tanzania, to see what miracles God will do on the final night of the campaign.”

From guest Evangelist, Paul Maurer:

“It was raining when we left the hotel for the campaign tonight, and there were grey clouds, but the Lord held back the rain! When we got to the campaign grounds, there was so much joy and rejoicing as people were praising God! Evangelist Daniel King preached a dramatized message called, “The four miracles in the Bible” that really captivated the people. Thousands came to Jesus as the call for salvation was given. 

Tonight, there were so many miracles and healings that the people were dancing to celebrate all that Jesus did!

  • A lady had pain in her legs for ten years. The pain was mostly in her knees, and after prayer, all the pain is gone.
  • A man had a stroke three years ago. Because of the stroke, he could not walk properly, and he had to use a cane. After prayer, he can now walk without a cane.
  • A lady had problems with her eyes. She had a type of double vision. Jesus healed her, and now she sees clearly. 
  • A lady had lots of pain in her stomach and her legs. She also had high blood pressure and could not lift her arms because of a shoulder problem. After the healing prayer, all the pain left, and she can now lift her arms. 
  • For ten years a lady would have to take injections to eat because of stomach problems. Jesus touched her, and now she can eat without the injections.
  • A lady said she was completely deaf for five years. Jesus touched her, and now she can hear. Her ears were not 100% better but much better.
  • A lady had ringing in her ears for 14 years and had hearing problems. Jesus touched her, and all the ringing was gone, and her ears were completely healed.
  • A lady had blurred vision for five years. It was so bad that she could not see the faces of her children. Her right eye was completely healed, and she can now see. 
  • A girl was carried to the meeting by her parents. She was in a lot of pain for the past week, and someone had to help her walk as she could not stand by herself. After prayer, she was healed and can walk on her own.
  • A lady could not walk because of a hip problem. The doctor said that her hip needed to be replaced. She was in extreme pain. Jesus healed her and now the woman can walk and even dance. 
  • A 14-year-old teenage girl was completely deaf in her right ear for three years. Jesus touched her, and now she can hear perfectly.

We are so excited by what the Lord is doing in the city of Kahama, Tanzania!”

Truly God is pouring out His Spirit upon the precious people of Tanzania, and there are still two more Gospel campaigns taking place this week. Be on the lookout tomorrow for more recaps from this past week!

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Day 4

The beginning of something great!

We have just concluded our final night of our three simultaneous Gospel campaigns in Shinyanga, Tabora and Kahama, Tanzania. Tonight, I would like to share the following report from Evangelist Jared Horton and their final night in Tabora, Tanzania:

Evangelist Jared Horton writes:

“We just finished our last night of the Decapolis CfaN Campaign here in Tabora, Tanzania. What God has done in this city has been amazing! The local pastors told us that there has NEVER been a Gospel event like this in the history of Tabora! Tonight was the biggest crowd; there were over 26,000 people in attendance. I preached a simple Gospel message, and again, thousands of people made decisions for Christ. 

Tonight we also prayed for them to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. As they asked Jesus to baptize them in the Holy Spirit, suddenly the power of God swept over the campaign field, and thousands of people began praying in tongues and prophesying. It was truly a sight to see! 

After we prayed for them to receive the Holy Spirit, Bootcamp Graduates David Clementi and Jim Weitner prayed for the sick and started taking testimonies. David and Jim are true men of God that have been in Tabora weeks before the campaign began, working diligently to make sure the campaign was a success. Without them, none of what happened in Tabora would have been possible. 

Here are a few of the powerful testimonies from their time of healing ministry:

  • A Muslim lady came to the meeting with a large tumor in her stomach area. Tonight she stood on the stage and testified that during the meeting, it disappeared and said, “Now I have to follow Jesus!"
  • A man had inflammation in the knees for six years; during the prayer, all the inflammation left his body, and he was completely healed!
  • A lady who had a sickness in her stomach for three years received her healing tonight!
  • A lady who was having a lot of pain around her waist for the last four months was healed and she testified that all her waist pain was gone.
  • A lady said that for 16 years she suffered from epilepsy. Three times it caused her to throw herself in a fire. Tonight she testified that she was completely healed and set free from epilepsy!

Raining down blessings on Tabora

As we ended the campaign, we encouraged everyone to get involved in a local church and to begin evangelizing their city for Christ. We let them know that tonight was not the end, but rather it was the beginning of what God is doing in Tabora! We also took the time to speak blessing after blessing over them. We blessed their schools, educational system, businesses, finances, health, agriculture, water systems, government, police, marriages, children, families, and anything else we could think of. As Daniel Kolenda mentioned to them last night, we made sure they went home loaded down with blessings! Tabora will never be the same in Jesus’ name! 

For me personally, it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to participate as a co-evangelist in this campaign. I have great appreciation to God and Evangelist Daniel Kolenda for this amazing opportunity. It is truly exciting to be a part of the "Decade of Double Harvest" Vision. We are going for 150 Million souls in 10 years!”

This is truly a historic time that would not be possible without your prayers and support. Over the next three days I will share with you reports from the last few days of campaign meetings that you haven’t seen yet, and next week we begin again in two different cities in Tanzania! Be on the lookout for these reports also. You will be blessed!

Yours in the Gospel,

Day 3

Tabora, Tanzania

Day 3 – Shinyanga, Tanzania

God of creative miracles

We have just concluded another amazing night of Gospel Campaigns in Tanzania! Tonight, we were again in three different cities, preaching the Gospel. For this report, I am going to share with you Evangelist Gary Smith’s recap of his incredible night in Shinyanga, Tanzania. Please read below: 

“Wow! If I had to describe tonight in one word, it would be “Fire”! Fire literally is what happened as we burnt two containers full of witchcraft paraphernalia, idols, all sorts of bracelets and charms. All day, I have been in much expectation for tonight's meeting as I knew that the power of God was going to touch the people of Shinyanga in a mighty way! Early in the day, the campaign committee sent me a list of all strongholds and curses over the area. I began to pray that the Lord would destroy the work of the enemy and turn all the curses into blessings. When I arrived, the campaign field was so charged! The people were worshiping the Lord, with big smiles on their beautiful faces, as far as I could see. You could feel their expectation to receive all they needed from the Lord, and they were not going to leave the same way they came in! I shared the Gospel message of repentance to make things right with the Lord. Everything that was done in the darkness, will be exposed in the light. To walk in freedom is a life completely surrendered to Jesus.

When the salvation message was called, people began to empty the stands and come to the front of the platform. Hands were raised and voices shouted out loud all over the stadium as thousands asked Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. Such a beautiful moment that I will never forget, hearing thousands ask Jesus to come into their life! Their beautiful voices echo throughout my head, and I begin to weep to think that their lives will never be the same again. 

Many mighty miracles also happened tonight. I specifically prayed for creative miracles and different types of cancer. 

A woman came to testify what the Lord did for her. She was crying as she was trying to explain that she does not know how it happened, but her left arm grew out and is now equal length as her right one. Then her father, who was a pastor, came to testify that what had happened was real and that he does NOT understand it nor how it happened. I told him, “Sir, we serve a God of miracles and the Lord just performed a creative miracle on your daughter!”

Another woman testified that she had tumors in her stomach area that caused much pain, but after the prayer, all the pain was gone, and she could not feel them any longer.

Not only were there many miracles, but we also prayed for the people to receive the Holy Spirit. While I was praying, the power of God was setting people free all over the stadium. 

After the meeting ended, I was heading back to the vehicle when people surrounded it and started asking for prayer. As I began to pray for them, there was a woman holding a little baby boy - about three years old - and she told me her son's leg was shorter than the other. I could tell the right leg was much shorter than the left when I held him. So I began to pray for the boy, and as I did, his right leg grew to complete equal length as the left! The mom put the baby down, I grabbed his hand, and we began to walk around. He was able to walk without any issues. He did not have a limp any longer while we walked. The mom was crying so much. She could not believe that her son's legs are now equal length.

Thank you so much for your prayers! There has already been great fruit. More to come tomorrow.

Day 3

Kahama, Tanzania

He was deaf in his right ear for 15 years and he says that he can hear now.

Day 2

Shinyanga, Tanzania

Tonight I preached in the city of Shinyanga, Tanzania – the first of the five cities where I will preach over the next two weeks. It is so amazing to me that this is happening despite the worldwide pandemic. It’s also amazing to see evangelists that graduated from the Bootcamp just a few months ago, like Jim and Kathy Leamon (who have helped organize this event in Shinyanga), taking such a strong leading role in the organization of these amazing events. The campaigns in each of the cities are being organized by Bootcamp graduates – and the results have been outstanding. 

Tonight, after I preached the Gospel, I asked three of the Bootcamp graduates here in Shinyanga to help minister to the sick. Micheline Harfouche, Victoria Osborne, and David Rotärmel, all ministered with great anointing, and powerful miracles took place. Tumors vanished, injured body parts were healed, and a man’s deaf ear opened. Victoria had a word of knowledge about a woman with a tumor on her neck. Soon that woman came to the platform and testified of her healing! The other cities had tremendous breakthroughs as well.

Meanwhile, back in Shinyanga, where I was preaching, we saw very similar things. The Lord held back the rain in a miraculous way. Also, there was much demonic manifestation, deliverance, and salvation. Praise God!

Going forward, we will only send you one report from one campaign per night, but I wanted to introduce the evangelists in the team and the cities where our campaigns are taking place. Please continue to pray for our team and for all five cities that will be impacted by the Gospel this week.

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Day 2

Tabora, Tanzania

Evangelist Jared Horton writes: “Tonight I preached on the blood of Jesus Christ! Before the meeting, the locals gave me a list of the false gods of this city. As I was going over my notes with the interpreter, I told him that we were going to call out each false god by name and break their power over the city in the name of Jesus. My interpreter said, “Actually we should not do that, it could cause problems.” Evangelist Daniel Kolenda has told us that sometimes the interpreters are full of fear and are afraid that the witch doctors could put a curse on them if they publicly call out these false gods. As I continued going over the plan for the night, he finally agreed to go through with it. Later, after we finished our interpreter meeting, I saw him at the end of the container trailer, praying and going after God with great intensity. He was getting prepared for what we were about to do. 

As we called out each false god, again, just like last night, people began to manifest demons all over the field, but this time there were more. Jako Hugo, who has helped with CfaN campaigns for 14 years said, he has never seen the deliverance tent so full. We believe we are seeing this type of response because of the deep dark area of witchcraft we are in. 

One thing for certain is you can clearly see that the blood of Jesus and the name of Jesus have power! When we began to call on Jesus in the meeting, people began manifesting all over the field, and one by one, they are carried to the deliverance tents. This is proof that Jesus is winning and the devil is losing! 

After we broke the power of witchcraft over the city, we prayed for the sick. Here are some powerful testimonies from tonight. 

  • A lady whose left arm was paralyzed, was miraculously healed. She came to the platform to testify and demonstrate for us how she could use her arm again. 
  • A lady who had painful ulcers for one year testified that she was completely healed. All the pain in her body left during the prayer. 
  • A lady who was at the meeting the first night came today to testify of her healing. She had an issue of blood for 20 years. Today she confirmed that she was completely healed. 
  • A Muslim lady who had numbness on both legs received her healing and made Jesus Christ her Lord and Savior! 
  • A young lady who had pain in her stomach for 18 months was completely healed. 
  • A paralyzed lady was carried to the deliverance tent. As soon as she was delivered from demons, she also received her full complete healing.

Day 2

Kahama, Tanzania

Evangelist Daniel King writes: “Today’s campaign meeting was scheduled to begin at 2 pm, but at 1 pm rain was falling from the sky. The Christians knew that people would be hesitant to come if it was raining, so they started to pray. Slowly, the sky cleared and soon the rain completely stopped.

Tonight I preached on the paralyzed man who was let down through the roof. In Matthew 9, Jesus said three things to him. First, Jesus said, “Be encouraged.” Second, Jesus said, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Third, Jesus said, “Get up, take up your bed, and go home completely healed.” Jesus healed the man’s spirit, soul, and body. 

I gave the altar call, and thousands of people responded by raising their hands. They all wanted Jesus to forgive their sins. After I led them in a salvation prayer, the counselors gave each new believer a book and recorded their names on a decision card.

Then I prayed for the sick. First, I prayed for emotional healing, and Jesus encouraged the hearts of many people. Then I prayed for physical healing. As I rebuked every pain and sickness, miracles broke out across the crowd. Over a dozen people lifted up their crutches and began to take steps of faith.

Here are some of the incredible and powerful testimonies recorded:

  • A lady who came to the platform to share her testimony was carrying her crutch in the air. She said she had been unable to walk for ten years, but now Jesus had healed her. The band began to play music, and she danced with her crutch lifted high.
  • A young girl who had an enlarged heart, and was unable to run for over a year, came forward saying that she had been healed. The music started, and she ran back and forth to show that Jesus had healed her.
  • Another lady had pain in her stomach for three months, and pain in her shoulder for over a year. She told the crowd that both problems were healed.
  • A lady who had been paralyzed for one year and nine months whom her neighbor brought to the event on public transportation, was healed. Her face had a big smile as she danced with the crowd.

After another person came forward who was paralyzed and was healed, it became clear that the theme of all the miracles tonight was of paralyzed people who were being healed. I preached on a paralyzed man being healed by Jesus and then Jesus proved He is still alive by healing many paralyzed people in Kahama.

Another testimony was of a lady with terrible back leg pain for four years. Because of the pain, she went to the doctor for expensive injections. But now she can walk pain-free. There were many more people lined up to testify, including a woman who was deaf whose ears were opened, and another woman who was blind whose eyes are now able to see.

Right as the testimony time was finished, a drizzle of rain fell from the sky. God had held back the rain all the way to the end of the campaign. The crowd pulled out umbrellas and went home happy because of everything God is doing in Kahama, Tanzania.”

Operation Decapolis begins!

Powerful first night in Kahama, Tanzania! Evangelist Paul Maurer preached and prayed for the sick at the first night of the Gospel Campaign in Kahama. People gave their hearts to Jesus, wonderful miracles took place, and it is only day one! Two other Gospel Campaigns are happening at the same time, in Tabora Jared Horton and Shinyanga with Gary Smith!

Day 1

Kahama, Tanzania

Evangelist Paul Maurer writes: “Tonight I preached a simple Gospel message and had a tremendous response. Thousands gave their lives to Jesus! It was a beautiful sight to see so many Tanzanians give their lives to Christ.

When I started praying deliverance prayers, demons began to manifest all over the crowd. Demonized people began screaming, shrieking, and rolling around on the ground as the demons responded to the name of Jesus. I heard that witchcraft is very prevalent in the area, and I guess that explains why so many needed deliverance. The team told me that the ‘snake pit’ was overflowing with people! It was a joy to hear reports of them getting set-free!

There were some notable healings:

  • One woman could not walk properly for 18 years. She said she was very stiff, and people had to help her move around. For the past 2 years, she was in a lot of pain, felt weak, and had to use a stick to walk. After prayer, she was completely pain-free and no longer had to use her walking stick.
  • One man had epilepsy for more than 10 years. He said during the healing prayer he felt the power of God go into his body, and he believed that Jesus healed him.
  • One woman had been in severe pain from gout in both of her legs. She had been on a very strict diet so that she could get better. She also could not sleep because of the gout. During the healing prayer, she said she felt the power of God enter her body and all of her pain left! As she was sharing her testimony on the platform, I saw a tear appear on her eye. It wasn’t tears of sadness but tears of joy because she was so thankful for what Jesus did for her.  
  • At the end of the meeting, a mother came up to me with tears in her eyes. Her son was 3 years old, and he never spoke a word in his life. Tonight he spoke for the first time and said the word “Mama.” She was so happy!

It was such an honor to be able to be a guest evangelist at this crusade and I am so thankful to Evangelist Daniel Kolenda for the opportunity.”

Day 1

Tabora, Tanzania

Evangelist Jared Horton writes: “I just made it back to the hotel and all I can say is…WOW. I knew there would be a lot of people at the Gospel Campaign, but to walk onto that platform and see a massive crowd in front of you is a lot to take in all at once. It is something that brings tears to your eyes. Just seeing all the beautiful Tanzanian people so hungry for God and so open to what we have to say is amazing. 

Tonight in Tabora, Tanzania, I preached a simple Gospel message, and right as we began to pray the prayer of salvation, literally all over the field people began to manifest demons. Immediately, the ushers began to carry them through the crowd to the deliverance tent. Being this was my first time to preach a Gospel Campaign of this size on the platform with Christ for all Nations, I was a little taken back by what I was seeing happen before my eyes. I almost did not know what to do for a few seconds. Then over the microphone, I simply asked the Holy Spirit to come. I began to plea the blood of Jesus over the field and rebuke every demonic spirit, then quietly waited on the Holy Spirit to finish His job. After things calmed down a little, I reverently continued with the decision cards. It was truly a Holy moment on the field. 

After the people prayed the prayer of salvation and filled out decision cards, I came back and prayed for the sick. Here are a few of the outstanding testimonies:

  • A man who had only 10% hearing in both ears for 19 years received complete healing when both of his ears opened up.
  • 3 people who were carried on the field because they could not walk; walked onto the platform to testify and demonstrate their healing. One of them was unable to walk for 5 years, another was unable to walk for 2 years, and the other was unable to walk for 5 months.
  • A lady who had fibroids in her stomach received complete healing as they disappeared during the prayer for the sick. 
  • A man's right arm was numb for 1 year. During the prayer, all the feeling came back to his arm.
  • For many years a lady’s right arm was numb and only had 25% mobility. After we prayed, all the feeling came back into her arm, and she could use it as normal.
  • After the meeting, Bootcamp graduate, Evangelist David Clementi prayed twice for a deaf man, and after the second prayer, both his ears popped open.

The local Pastors were greatly pleased with the outcome of the first night. The fact that God showed up in such mighty power is an indicator of what is going to happen in the next 3 nights!”

Day 1

Shingyanga, Tanzania

Evangelist Gary Smith writes: “The moment I got on the first flight to Shinyanga, Tanzania, I began to weep in the presence of the Lord. During the multiple flights, I was still encountering the mighty presence of the Lord that continues to stay and has not lifted from me, nor do I want it too! Glory to God. 

As we arrived in the beautiful city of Shinyanga, I could feel the excitement in the air as this city has been saturated in the presence of God. For weeks the CfaN Bootcamp graduates have been preaching in the schools and marketplaces, and the Gospel Campaign committee has been meeting with all the officials. This city has also been blanketed in advertisements. 

…Upon arrival to the Gospel Campaign, I could feel the presence of the Lord. Immediately I began to minister on the urgency of a life totally surrendered to the Lord and that NOW is their time of salvation. As the message was being preached people that were in the stands began to make their way to the altar area, and those that were in the field also began to get closer to the platform. I gave the invitation for them to ask Jesus to be Lord of their life and if they were ready to give Jesus their whole life and not just a part of their life…Not only were thousands saved, but there were also hands lifted all over the entire field that said Jesus has healed them. From the very back of the stadium to the far left and right, hands were lifted high as the Lord healed them! Glory to God. 

The testimony line grew longer and longer as people were excited to tell what the Lord had done for them. There was a lady that had a tumor in the lower part of her stomach. She had just been to the doctor’s office only 2 weeks ago to schedule an appointment for the removal of the tumor. The tumor caused much pain, and she testified that the tumor was gone and that there was no pain. With much excitement and joy, I told her that she does not need to have the operation any longer because the great physician just performed surgery on her free of charge! Hallelujah. Another woman testified that her sight, and her ability to walk, was restored. This lady was not able to see further than just a few feet in front of her, and during prayer, her eyes completely opened, and she was able to see the back of the stadium, which was over 100 yards in the distance. I’m in complete joy and celebration of all that the Lord has done in the city of Shinyanga and I'm excited for the 3 days to follow in this Gospel Campaign. I know that each night will grow and grow from glory to glory. “

Arrived!

Another beautiful day in Tanzania

Breakfast at the border and paperwork for customs in Kenya and Tanzania. Hopefully, we’ll get going again in the late afternoon – but we’ll make it in time.

We’re finished with everything, including packing and sealing, and are ready for tomorrow’s early start to the campaigns in 5 Tanzanian cities.

At midnight, our container full of important equipment (shipped from the UK) was released from customs. Now there is plenty to load in and on the trucks. Tomorrow, we’re headed for the Tanzanian border.

We fetched the first trailer and drove it to the warehouse. It is intended for the fourth of our five equipment units for evangelistic campaigns.

More team members from Nigeria and Tanzania have arrived who will travel with us to the various cities. Jonathan and his team, working in the warehouse on the light masts and loading one of the generators for Tanzania.

Today, Winfried was at the firm that the put together our new trailers. Because of delivery problems with the materials, there were some delays caused by the coronavirus. Thank you for all your financial
