  • One of the Most Precious Moments of My Life – Daloa, Ivory Coast – Day 3

    Dear Mission Partners,

    I don’t even want to try to describe the atmosphere tonight. Words just don’t suffice. Even this video doesn’t do it justice, but you really should take a minute to watch this short clip that I recorded from my cell phone while standing on the platform after praying for the sick and praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. If this is not “joy unspeakable and full of glory” then I don’t know what is:

    Standing there on the platform, in this atmosphere, miracles were happening everywhere. The crowd was heaving with excitement and faith. Behind me stood a woman who had been crippled for 6 years after a botched neck surgery. Tonight, she along with several other cripples, were healed. We danced together and rejoiced. It was so beautiful.

    Then a young lady came forward with tears streaming down her face. Her mother told me that she had been deaf since she was a small child. She was not able to go to school as a result, and her whole life was affected by it. Tonight, when I asked the people to raise their hands, she responded and lifted her hands. Her mother was shocked. She said, “Did you understand?” and the girl answered her mother for the first time in many years. “Yes…I can hear.” She embraced me tightly as she wept; then her momma came in for a group hug. I can honestly say it was one of the most precious moments of my life.

    She was not the only deaf person that was healed. A 25-year-old man, who was deaf from birth in his right ear, said that as I was praying, he physically felt a finger enter his ear. Then suddenly his ear exploded with sound.

    There were many more testimonies. Too many to convey and too many to hear. God is shaking this city mightily. Daloa will never be the same.

    Despite some threats on the field tonight, we persisted. God protected us and showed up, as you can see for yourself in my video.

    Thank you for praying. Tomorrow is the last day. Please continue to cover us.

    Yours in the Gospel,

  • 360 Degrees of Miracles! – Bouaké, Ivory Coast – Final Day

    Bouake-Day-4

     

    Dear Mission Partners,

    No description would be adequate to convey the extent of what just happened a few minutes ago. First of all, the field was packed tonight with more than 210,000 people! That’s a third of the population of the whole city. When I asked how many were attending for the first time, it was the majority of the crowd. That means that literally most of the city heard the Gospel this week (with combined attendance)! Pastors told us that their churches were packed to overflowing this morning – so much so, they thought they would have to turn people away.

    The entire crusade has been amazing, but tonight went above and beyond. After I preached the Gospel and prayed for the sick, there was a moment of silence. Usually there is more excitement than that. I wondered for a second if anyone had been healed. Then, all of a sudden, it was as if something shifted. People started shouting, screaming and dancing. People were falling under the power of the Holy Spirit. Demons were manifesting. It was total chaos. Crutches were going up in the air. I heard them shouting from my right, my left, in front and behind – everywhere I looked something amazing was happening. It was 360 degrees of miracles!

    I interviewed two TOTALLY BLIND women who were healed (one of them muslim).

    Several cripples can now walk, including a man who was totally paralyzed on his left side – completely unable to move his left arm or leg. Tonight, he was literally marching on the platform.

    There was a baby who had been suffering with a terrible lung infection since November of 2014, but we heard that last night she was healed. Today, they took her to the hospital for a confirmation, and the doctors didn’t even believe she’d ever had anything wrong with her.

    A woman with kidney failure who had been on dialysis for three years was also healed last night, and she told us that she went to the doctor today and they confirmed that she is perfectly well!

    This is just a small sampling of the many amazing things Jesus has done here.

    As we prepare to leave Bouaké, I must confess that my heart is a bit heavy. You may have heard that we had to cancel the next crusade scheduled to take place in Burkina Faso due to lack of funds. When I think about all that has happened this week, it breaks my heart that we will miss the opportunity to see hundreds of thousands of souls saved next month. The following crusade is also not funded. We are trusting the Lord for a financial breakthrough to see it happen. There is still time to save it. If you are willing to help us you can make a donation through our website - http://www.cfan.org.au/donatenow.html

    Thank you so much for praying for us this week. Many thousands of lives have been impacted for eternity. I will come back to you with a decision card count as soon as it’s in.

    Yours in the Gospel,

  • A Mighty Outpouring! – Bouaké, Ivory Coast – Day 3

    Bouake-Day-3

     

     

    Dear Mission Partners,

    This morning our Fire Conference came to a conclusion as Peter Vandenberg and I ministered to about 10,000 delegates – pastors and leaders from the region. We prayed, as usual, for them to receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It was glorious! I believe a spark of revival has been lit here in Bouaké, Ivory Coast, that will continue with the local Body of Christ long after we’ve gone.

    Tonight, we saw another significant increase in attendance. At this point I’m not sure how the field will accommodate the crowd tomorrow night! Have a look at the picture.

    After preaching the Gospel, praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and praying for the sick, the Lord was faithful to heal many sick people. Also, as is typical when the Holy Spirit falls, many demoniacs manifested and were ministered to. Several cripples were healed. A woman who had been deaf in one ear since birth was healed. A woman said a large, rock hard, growth in her stomach vanished. A paralyzed boy stood and walked…and many more.

    Tomorrow is the last night of this campaign. Please continue to pray for us.

    Yours in the Gospel,

    Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

  • An Overwhelming Response – Bouaké, Ivory Coast – Day 2

    Bouake-Day-2

     

    Dear Mission Partners,

    It was another huge day here in Bouaké, Ivory Coast. The crowd more than doubled tonight. I preached about the power in the blood of Jesus, and the response was overwhelming. So many people gave their lives to the Lord!

    There were also many wonderful miracles including: several cripples and paralytics that were healed, a mad man who came to his right mind, and a woman born deaf and mute who heard and spoke for the first time tonight! In fact, her left ear opened on the platform in front of the crowd. What an amazing night.

    Tomorrow, we will pray for the baptism into the Holy Spirit in both the Fire Conference in the morning, and the evangelistic meeting in the evening. Please continue to pray for us.

    Yours in the Gospel,

    Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

  • Heaven is Rejoicing! - Boauké, Ivory Coast - Day 1

    Bouake-Day-1

     

    Dear Mission Partners,

    The first night of our Gospel campaign here in Bouaké, Ivory Coast has just ended minutes ago. I am so amazed by the level of hunger and expectancy in this small place. As I preached, there was an overwhelming response from the people who were hanging on every word. I have already fallen in love with Bouaké and this is only the first day!

    After preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick, miracles broke out all over the field. The sound of rejoicing from the crowd grew so loud that I don’t think the people could hear me praying or talking anymore.

    The very first testimony was from a man who was paralyzed for seven years! His sister brought him to the meeting tonight by taxi, and he was sitting on the ground. As I prayed for the sick, he said he lifted his hand and it began to shake. He didn’t understand what was happening to him and suddenly he collapsed under the power of the Holy Spirit. Then he heard me say that he should get up and walk. He tried to move his leg and realized it felt very “light.” He tried the other leg and it was also moving. He stood to his feet and began to walk for the first time in seven years!

    We also heard from a lady who was healed after being unable to walk for the past four years, a woman who was paralyzed for five years, an elderly lady who was blind and also a woman who had not had menstruation for 10 years that started during the prayer!

    Not everyone healed tonight was Christian. That’s all I can say. But Jesus touched people of every religion indiscriminately. I’m sure there is great rejoicing in Heaven tonight.

    Thank you for praying. Please continue. The best is yet to come.

    Yours in the Gospel,

    Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
