Dear Mission – Partners,
We have just returned to the hotel from the last meeting of this glorious Gospel Crusade in Ikot Ekpene/Nigeria. Tonight 400,000 people attended the service. Although it rained in the meeting, Evangelist Kolenda again preached the Word of God with powerful results.
The older I get the greater the wonder and blessings of our salvation become to me. When Jesus told Mary and Joseph, “I must be about my Father’s business” (Lk 2:49 NKJV), he was talking about the business of salvation. It was the Father’s business for the Son to be born and for salvation to be his immediate and direct business. He came to earth to be our Savior. He was the Word that spoke at Creation, but for salvation the Word came personally to us. His coming was life-long, a sustained sacrifice climaxing in the most horrible death. That was love in its most ultimate form. This Jesus is among us by the Holy Spirit.
Also: tonight great multitudes were baptized into the Holy Spirit and with fire – and many miracles of healing followed. It is salvation for the whole man, spirit, soul and body, spiritually, physically and mentally. Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and contribution which made this crusade possible. And may I be so bold to remind you that we still need the finances for the next crusade which is to start in about 2 weeks time? Thank you for your commitment and love for the harvest of eternal souls.
Yours forever in Jesus Christ,
Evangelists Reinhard Bonnke and Daniel Kolenda,
together with the whole CfaN Team.
