The Greatest Gift
Tonight was the final meeting of the final crusade of 2012. It’s hard to believe that another year of Gospel Campaigns has come to an end. This year we have been in Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone and Liberia, twice in Uganda, Ethiopia and now Benin. In order to meet the unique logistical challenges we had to split our equipment into two separate sets and place one in the east and one in the west. Along the way were many dangers, toils and snares, but God gave us grace, you stood with us, our team worked very hard and in all, more than 2-million people professed faith in Christ. What a mighty God we serve!
Tonight the response to the Gospel was overwhelming – almost universal. We also saw many miracles tonight, but the one that impacted me the most was a 15-year old girl, crippled from birth, who walked for the first time tonight! I will never forget the expression of joy on her face…it was so precious. I asked her, “Do you know who healed you?” She smiled and said, “Jesu. (Jesus)”
Our team now returns home to celebrate Christmas with our families and then, in January, we will be back on the field – this time in Ivory Coast. We pray that all of you have a very blessed Christmas season. Because of your support this year, we have been able to give the greatest gift of all to millions of people – the gift of salvation. Thank you.
Yours in the Harvest,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Reinhard Bonnke and the whole CfaN team
