We had a number of challenges in Kigali, including adverse weather conditions, that made it an unusually difficult week. We continued to press through however, and many of you were praying fervently for us. The last meeting was a huge breakthrough. First of all, the weather forecast was calling for a 90% chance of rain, and given the pattern we’d experienced throughout the week, it seemed a washout was certain. But not one drop of water fell on the campaign grounds. The crowd more than doubled from the previous night. One by one, it seemed as if the Lord gave us victory in each of the many areas where there had been resistance. Praise the Lord!
It was a packed night. Because we had been forced to shorten Saturday’s meeting (due to rain), we made up for it tonight. I asked one of the graduates from the Reinhard Bonnke School of Evangelism who was also born in Rwanda, to share her testimony for 10 minutes. I then preached the Gospel, prayed with the new converts, taught on the baptism into the Holy Spirit, and prayed for the people to receive the baptism.
Then Todd White (who is visiting), prayed for the sick and took testimonies. Many wonderful healings took place. Then we prayed over boxes full of prayer requests, prayed for the nation, and prayed for a blessing on the people of Kigali.
Whew! It was a full, blessed, and glorious night.
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
Together with Reinhard Bonnke, Peter van den Berg, and the whole CfaN team
