Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, Day 1
Back in Africa!
We are back in Africa for another Gospel campaign which began today here in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso. The last time our ministry was in this region was 1991. Since the median age is 16.5, and most of those attending these meetings would not have attended the last time, it is surprising how much good will remains from those meetings all these years later even though a new generation is on the scene now.
Yesterday, when we arrived in the city, we had special receptions by the Governor, Mayor and Traditional Ruler (the King) who is a Muslim. All three received us very warmly and expressed excitement at our arrival. The Governor, also attended tonight’s meeting and sat on the platform. We have been treated so well in a region that is predominantly Muslim (the rest are mostly Animist and Catholic).
After preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick, we heard testimonies of wonderful miracles. A man blind in both eyes for three years, received his sight. An old “mama” who was unable to stand without her crutch, can now walk (in fact, we danced together on the platform). A woman with a painful lump in her breast said that the lump, and all pain, instantly vanished during the prayer!
It seems to me that the people here have never experienced anything like this. Everything feels very fresh and new. Communication is also quite challenging here which introduces some unique dynamics. But I have an excitement in my heart that history will be made this week.
Please pray for us and for Bobo-Dioulasso. Pray for a mighty harvest and supernatural breakthrough. We are believing for the whole region to be shaken.
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda Together with the whole CfaN team
