The Boy Whose Life Touched Millions
“I am Reinhard Bonnke and I'd like to share these true stories of my life with you.”
What does a circus, a ship, and a dance hall for teens have in common? God used each one of them to set Reinhard Bonnke on course for a very special mission: to share the love of Jesus with millions of people around the world. The Boy Whose Life Touched Millions tells the real-life adventures that Reinhard Bonnke faced along his journey from post-war Germany to the mission-fields of Africa. Evangelist Bonnke fills this first-hand account with daring escapes, supernatural encounters, and miraculous conversions. His amazing journey is sure to inspire children of all ages to open their hearts to God’s call in their own lives.
Rocking the Boat
One day a large ship sat by the pier and I remembered our desperate journey to Copenhagen. I reached out from the deck and touched it! I touched it again, pushed with all my might and moved the ship a few inches from the pier. Can you believe it? I actually moved that massive boat! On shore it would have been impossible to move, but on water it was possible, even for me, a twelve-year-old boy. God spoke to my heart – when He asks me to do the impossible, I should obey. His ways are limitless, and nothing is impossible with God.
God Can Stop the Rain
God held off the rain for a full three weeks! Because the largest tent in the world had been destroyed, people heard about us and came to see for themselves. Media spread news of our story. Believers and not-yet believers came in crowds to hear the gospel. Our first meeting drew 25,000 people. Our final night, 75,000 attended. It became obvious that the largest tent would never have been big enough to hold the mass of people God planned to attract to Cape Town. During this meeting, not a single crime was reported, but criminals tossed their weapons onto the stage in repentance.
“Though I was disobedient at times and felt like a failure at other times, God used me to lead multiplied millions upon millions of people to accept Jesus as their Savior.” Reinhard Bonnke
