Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

Guest Evangelist Daniel Garcia reports from the Christ for all Nations Operation Decapolis Crusade in Mbeya, Tanzania.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

“I preached on the second night in Mbeya, Tanzania. The atmosphere at the crusade field was electric! We had a wonderful and joyous time of worship together before I got on stage to preach a simple but powerful message, using the story of Zacchaeus in the Bible. This story reflects the heart of God for restitution – making the wrongs right. The crowd was engaged and expectant, as this story is very captivating. I was sharing the moment when Jesus encounters Zacchaeus and how He deeply loves him. I noticed people crying all over the place as they realized the beautiful, forgiving love from Jesus.    

I preached a clear Gospel message and finished with an urgent call to make the wrongs right by choosing Jesus. Hands all over the crusade field were waving to receive Jesus as their Savior!

It was a night of very special miracles. Here are some below:

  • A man started walking for the first time after five years of not being able to stand. The man could feel power and electricity move from the top of his head, down his spine, and to his legs. He testified, “I felt power in my bones. I could not stand before, but as you prayed, I felt power that allowed me to stand.” He asked us to let him walk by himself on the stage. The crusade field erupted with joy and expectation to see Jesus moving! 
  • One little boy, who had a rare condition that hindered all the strength from his legs, was able to walk for the first time in his life. I heard the voice of Jesus telling me to hug this little boy and tell him that Jesus was healing him. I asked him to walk, and that is when the miracle happened. The little boy’s mom was weeping as she saw her son walk for the very first time. The crowd was jumping and celebrating with shouts of joy and praise to our Jesus!   

People kept arriving to the field throughout the whole crusade. There was a hunger and a passion to encounter Jesus all over the field. Our Jesus was embracing the people with love, salvation, healing, and deliverance - just as He did to that little boy who received his healing.   

We give all the Glory to God!

The third night was such a powerful night! The whole place went wild with salvations  and with the power of God healing and delivering multitudes! Canes and crutches were thrown away! We had many healings of people walking for the first time after being paralyzed or unable to walk!  

The salvation message was about the heart of Jesus, pursuing us to the utmost by shedding His blood at the Cross. His heart is so beautiful, wanting to rescue us from our sinful life. Through storytelling, people could see that Jesus’ blood is the utmost expression of His pursuing and relentless love to save us and cleanse us forever. All over the place, hands raised to welcome Jesus as their Savior!    

Our ushers were running, trying to carry so many people touched by the Holy Spirit and getting freedom from demonic oppression to a prayer tent. It is special to think how Jesus has the power to heal and deliver what doctors cannot help with or explain! 

Miracles broke out everywhere across the field, and the crowd shouted with joy as people were healed. We had a huge line of people waiting to give their testimony!

  • One lady that couldn’t walk since 2014 began walking for the first time! 
  • Another was a lady who also couldn’t walk at all for many years, and she ended up walking so fast, feeling 100%! She came with a cane, and she told me she didn’t need it anymore. I threw away her cane from the platform as she was completely healed!!
  • A man who was unable to walk for 10 years, was healed and walked for the first time!  

The people were jumping, shouting, and dancing as they received Jesus as their Savior, healer, and deliverer!!

Oh, I can feel the love of the Holy Spirit for Tanzania!!! I had a special moment with the crowd by leaving the stage to come down and hug them. I wanted to let them know that Jesus is loving and embracing each one of them!!

Jesus is so good!  In Christ’s love,

Wow, isn’t that amazing? My heart is stirred! Most people do not know this, but Daniel Garcia is based in our office at Christ for all Nations in Orlando! We are blessed to have him and his wife, Eden, on staff with us.  This concludes the reports from Guest Evangelists during Operation Decapolis in June, but my friend, this is only the beginning! We are just getting started! We rejoice in the tens of thousands of salvations and miraculous testimonies, but this is not the time to sit back; we are going faster than ever, pushing harder, to see God do even greater things this year (and in the years to come).

Thank you for reading these powerful reports - we pray they have been a blessing and encouragement. Please know that people just like you also share in the reward of every soul saved and healed!

Mission Report - Dodoma - Joe Turnbull

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

Guest Evangelist Joe Turnbull reports from the Christ for all Nations Operation Decapolis Crusade in Dodoma, Tanzania.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

“Tonight was the second night of the crusade, and we were encouraged and strengthened by the significant attendance increase. As I walked up to the crusade stage and saw all the people out on the field, my heart began to burn. This was my first time preaching at a CfaN Operation Decapolis crusade, and part of me was excited and ready, though another part of me was anxious. But in my heart, I knew that I was at the right place at the right time. With everything that I learned in the CfaN Evangelism Bootcamp, and every bit of training that Evangelist Daniel Kolenda gave us, I felt secure in what I was about to preach - I felt secure about myself as an evangelist. I looked down at my hand, and I saw the ring that Evangelist Daniel Kolenda gave us for the harvest, and when the worship music stopped, and Crusade Organizer Randy Roberts introduced me, I walked up and thought, “This is it…this is the moment”, and I began to open my mouth. All I could feel was passion and fire. After about 10 minutes, I began to feel comfortable, and I began to look at the people in the crowd and their faces. I felt that a connection was being built, and I felt like I was speaking to each and every person.

As I shared stories and illustrations, there was joy and laughter. But there was also darkness, which was the message I preached tonight: to turn from darkness to light. Even in the middle of the preaching, demons were manifesting on the field. Many people were carried to the deliverance tent. But as Evangelist Daniel Kolenda taught us, the Devil can have no minute of the crusade. So we pressed on and preached the clear Gospel: that people must turn from the power of Satan to the power of God. As we got near to the end of the message, Jesus took control. When I gave the altar call, for a split second I was nervous. Then all of a sudden, when I asked them to raise their hands, thousands of people raised their hands to receive Jesus, and in that moment, I knew that this is what I am called to do the rest of my life.

Here are notable testimonies to share with you:

  • A woman had chest pain for 3 years, but tonight she was set free from the pain in Jesus’ name. She felt great and relieved of this pain.
  • Another woman also had chest pain for 8 years. It was asthma specifically, and it was very hard for her to breathe. After running on the stage and taking deep breaths, she showed no more pain or shortness of breath. She testified that it was Jesus who healed her!
  • One woman could not see the preacher or the other people around because her vision was so bad. She showed on stage that she could see the preacher very well now!
  • Another woman had serious pain in her legs for 20 years. She testified tonight that there was no more pain tonight and that Jesus had healed her.
  • One man suffered from epilepsy, having seizures 3 times per day for 3 years. Since yesterday after prayer, though, he has not fallen down. He has been healed from epilepsy!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Tonight was night three of the crusade here in Dodoma. I preached on the power of the blood of Jesus, and as those very words fell on the crowd, demons began to manifest. I felt a connection with the crowd tonight in a genuine way. By the end of the sermon, I felt they were with me every step of the way. Many hands went up for the prayer of salvation, but that was just the beginning. We then got the barrels to set the juju and witchcraft on fire. Before we could even break curses, demons started manifesting in the crowd. I began to feel the power of God fall on me, and I spoke it over the people. All of a sudden, more demons manifested, the barrels were lit on fire, and the place erupted. We began to break every demonic stronghold and curse in the land. Soon after, we prayed for the blood of Jesus over the field and for every person to be healed. In that moment, an Islamic woman felt the fire of God cover her body and completely heal her. The best part is her daughter also got healed of shoulder pain, and both came to Christ.

Miraculous testimonies also included the following:

  • A woman was not able to walk, but after prayer yesterday, she woke up today able to walk - pain-free! Not only this, but she testified that the last time Reinhard Bonnke was in Dodoma (1997), her pregnancy was past her due date, but after she was prayed for - she delivered a healthy baby the next day!
  • Another woman had serious eye pain and pressure for 2 years. She couldn’t see well at all and could not read. The doctors confirmed this problem when she went. But yesterday, the pressure left, and her vision was restored. She went to read her Bible, and she was able to read again. She even went back to the doctor and they confirmed she no longer had the eye pressure she used to have!
  • A little girl received Jesus as her Lord and Savior yesterday and was also healed of shoulder pain. She was suffering from serious shoulder aches and during the prayer, all of the pain left.
  • A woman’s baby was not able to be fed milk because the mouth couldn’t move properly. The baby even remained in the hospital after birth. But after coming to the crusade tonight, the baby began to eat normally!

It was a night of repentance, deliverance, and healing. The testimonies will be close to my heart, and I am forever marked.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

It was such an honor and a privilege to preach at a Gospel crusade, to see God’s people look to Him. My life will never be the same, and I want to thank Evangelist Daniel Kolenda for making my dream come true.

Evangelist Joe Turnbull”


How incredible are these testimonies! A highlight for me was the one about the woman who was healed at our 1997 CfaN Gospel Crusade in Dodoma with Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke and then healed again in 2021 at a Gospel Crusade with a guest evangelist from the CfaN Evangelism Bootcamp!

Thank you for standing with us to see the Decade of Double Harvest become a reality. Indeed, it is already happening before our very eyes!

Mission Report - Morogoro - Evelina Smane

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

Evangelist Evelina Smane reports from the Christ for all Nations Operation Decapolis Crusade in Morogoro, Tanzania.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

“On the first night, I preached about Zacchaeus, and how the same way Jesus found Zacchaeus in the tree, He will find the people of Morogoro— no matter where they are. Jesus took Zacchaeus by the hand, and they began to walk, hand in hand, through the streets of Jericho, the sinner, and the Savior. In the same way, I shared that Jesus would take the people of Morogoro one by one, and He will go home with them after the crusade is over.

I shared about the love of God. The love of God to stop and find the one— even those who feel as if they have gone too far for any hope of redemption. The love of God that reconciles those who may have left Him by choice. The love of God that comes and simply MUST stay— even in a house that is full of doubt, self-hatred, witchcraft, and the vilest things this world has to offer. It was in precisely that kind of house where Jesus stated, "salvation has come" to Zacchaeus.

Zacchaeus also did something very important— he made restitution. I encouraged the people of Morogoro to dream with me for a moment. The Bible says, "Righteousness exalts a nation." I asked them to think about what would happen in Morogoro if every thief returned all of their stolen goods. I asked them to imagine what would happen if corruption ceased, if bribery ceased if people began to deal honestly with their neighbors. I told them what would happen. Tanzania would flourish in prosperity, grow, and be blessed above all the nations in the world. It is the devil that wants to destroy Tanzania, but Jesus said, "I have come that you might have life and that you might have it more abundantly!" Just as Zacchaeus decided that day, I shared with the people of Morogoro that it was their night to make a decision. 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

The response was incredible. I witnessed that very love of God that once snatched me from the kingdom of darkness and put me into the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, move on thousands and do the very same thing. I witnessed the power of God to heal, save and deliver people with my very own eyes! I saw the broken restored, the lame walk, and those tormented by demons set free. Here are just a few testimonies from that evening:

  • A woman had pain from her waist to her backbone and got completely healed as we prayed for the sick. 
  • Two months earlier, a man who suffered a stroke that left him unable to walk or use his hands, got healed. He was able to take a bath by himself and was finally able to eat with his own hands instead of having to be assisted. 
  • There was another woman who was oppressed by the devil because of witchcraft, but Jesus set her free! This oppression gave her intense pain in her wrists, and she would often fall, but one encounter with Jesus changed everything for her. 
  • There was another testimony that was quite memorable for me. A young lady testified that the Lord restored her menstrual cycle, and it started after the prayer service. I was able to pray for this teenager, and I believe that that day, the Lord moved powerfully on the women at that meeting and opened many barren wombs, restoring women and their identity in Jesus.

June 12th, 2021 was a personal gift from Jesus to me. Not only was I preaching that night, but it was also my 30th birthday! I asked Jesus for two very large birthday presents: salvations and baptisms in the Holy Spirit. It was the best birthday of my life. Before I started to preach, Crusade Director Lukas Repert asked the whole crowd to sing 'Happy Birthday to me. Then the entire crowd, those beautiful people of Morogoro, prayed over me. I was overwhelmed by the love of Jesus!!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

That night I spoke about the woman with the issue of blood from Mark 5:21-34.

I shared how when you hear about Jesus, your life is about to change for the better. From the moment the woman heard about Jesus' ability to perform miracles, she focused on getting to Him. She knew Jesus was the answer to her problem.

I also shared that speaking releases faith. The woman with the issue of blood said to herself, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed" (Mark 5:28). This confession opened the door for her to receive her miracle. The woman had believed the reports she heard about Jesus. This belief literally created her miracle. Jesus explained, "Daughter, your faith has healed you" (Mark 5:34). Believing is the catalyst that turns God's promises into God's power!

The woman then took action by pushing through the crowd until she could touch the hem of Christ's garment. Faith is never static, and it always takes action. As we prayed for healing, I encouraged the people in the crowd to do something they were not able to do before (stand, bend, move, etc.). Many were healed, and later, I even heard of a lady who came with a tumor that completely disappeared the next day!

Many more miracles happened too!

  • A woman had stomach pain and ulcers for four months. She also had back problems. She was given medicine, but it didn't help. Susan got healed today at the crusade. Her pain was gone, and now she can bend up and down with no problem because of Jesus.
  • Another woman had so much pain in her legs and waist that she couldn't sit properly for five years. She was going to go to a hospital, but her friend told her about the crusade, and she came there instead. This woman had come a long distance for Jesus to heal her, and after the prayer, she was healed and was able to walk and bend down without pain.
  • A woman had back pain and neck pain for one year. She felt like thorns were piercing her. Also, one leg was shorter, and she walked unevenly. But now, she walks straight! Yesterday, when Daniel Kolenda was praying, she received healing for her back and neck as well!
  • Another woman wasn't able to stand for a while or sit down due to back pain for 3 months. She felt like her back was on fire. As I prayed, she began to sweat, and then when she stood up for a long time, she was pain-free!

That night, I saw thousands of people commit their lives to Jesus. I saw radical salvations and baptisms in the Holy Spirit. People were responding in droves. I saw person after person being carried to the prayer tent for deliverance as soon as I started to pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

I heard a story after the night had wrapped up about a witch doctor who came to the service to destroy the meeting. While I was praying for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the fire of God came upon her, and she began to manifest demons. She was taken to the deliverance tent, screaming, "Why would the devil tell me to come here?!" In the end, she was delivered and set free by the power of the Holy Spirit. It was a glorious evening, as we ended it by burning everything pertaining to witchcraft - dancing, and singing praises to God. It was truly the best gift I could have ever asked for!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Thank you, Jesus, for this gift. Thank you, Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and the Christ for all Nations USA team for this opportunity. God's goodness forever marks me.

With love and respect to you all,

Evelina Smane"


I hope you are encouraged and blessed by reading these reports of God's power to save and heal! Once again, these miraculous testimonies of salvation and deliverance would not be possible without your ongoing, faithful prayers and support for our Gospel crusades and the ministry of Christ for all Nations!

Only a couple more reports from the guest evangelists remain, so be on the lookout!

Mission Report - Iringa - Roselyne Ayeola

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

Evangelist Dr. Roselyne Ayeola reports from the Christ for all Nations Operation Decapolis Crusade in Iringa, Tanzania.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

On June 11, 2021, my story and David’s story in the Bible collided because you can say, God called and chose a little girl like me among many accomplished and seasoned evangelists to go into Iringa to take down the giant of darkness. All I have is my trust in Jesus and the slingshot of His word in my mouth. God truly does not call the qualified; He qualifies the called.  

As a young African female evangelist trained by Evangelist Daniel Kolenda at the CfaN Evangelism Bootcamp, I had the precious privilege of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ on African soil on a mass scale. As I preached on POWER OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS in the city of Iringa, Tanzania, I saw for the first time in my life almost every hand go up in response to the call for salvation.

I am still blown away by the breakthroughs I witnessed. Many demons manifested, the deliverance tent was full, and several people fell out under the power of God as I prayed, breaking generational curses off the people’s lives. Many hands went up when I asked how many people received the evidence of their healing. It was truly mind-boggling. I could not believe what my eyes were seeing, and to think this is only the beginning!

  • A young man named Isaac (15 or 16) was completely deaf in both ears for 3 years, which made things challenging physically, mentally, and emotionally. I tested his hearing as I walked behind him, counting 1,2,3, and asked him to repeat what I said, and he did! Tonight, Isaac was completely healed!   
  • Margaret wasn’t able to move her wrists for 2 months, making it difficult to perform basic, daily tasks. But tonight, she was healed and able to move her wrists freely, without restriction!
  • A Mama with a baby on her back (named Imaculeta) was healed of a cyst on her stomach.
  • One man wasn’t able to bend his back for 2 months because of pain, but tonight he was healed, and the pain left completely!

Heaven is rejoicing! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!  

My heart was filled with expectation as we drove to the field for the fourth night of the CfaN Gospel crusade in Iringa. The theme of my message for tonight was REDEEMED. After preaching a powerful message, many people received salvation and redemption as they surrendered their lives to Jesus.    

Not too long after witnessing mass salvations, I prayed for the people to be baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit, receiving His power and fire. As the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit covered the field where we gathered, many people cried out to God as they were being touched. Several people started manifesting demons, and they were carried to the deliverance tent. The devil cannot stand the power of God!  

Tonight, Jesus blew my mind again! When I asked how many people received the evidence of their healings, the number of hands that went up was too many to count.  

  • For 2 months, an older woman couldn’t sleep well. She had a fiery sensation in her arm every night. She said Jesus healed her on the first night of the crusade, and she has been sleeping soundly ever since.
  • A little boy named Godwin couldn’t walk for 2 months. After I prayed for the sick tonight, he began to walk. I asked if Godwin could dance, and he said he doesn’t know how to. How precious! I told Godwin that I would dance with him, and together we danced and sang praises to Jesus! I asked Godwin who healed him, and he answered, Jesus. 
  • A young lady had a tumor in her stomach for 2 years. Tonight Jesus healed her after we prayed! She wasn’t able to bend before, but now she can, and her tumor is gone!  
  • A young boy, of about 12 years old, had pus coming out of his left ear for 4 years. Tonight Jesus healed him! No more pus!  
  • A man named Halid said he was tied up like a cow to the crusade field tonight because he was mentally ill for over 20 years. Halid’s neighbor came up to the platform with him to testify to the greatness of Jesus. Jesus healed him! Now Halid is in his right mind. 
  • An older woman named Takesia was paralyzed in her right arm and leg for 3 years, and tonight, Jesus healed her. She lifted her right arm as she praised Jesus and walked with her two legs for the first time in 3 years. Takesia began to cry as she thanked Jesus for her healing. I was deeply moved to see this beautiful mama set free from paralysis. Jesus is AMAZING! 
  • For 4 years, an older woman had tumors in her legs and couldn’t wear her shoes or run because her legs were swollen with these tumors. Tonight Jesus healed her, and the tumors vanished. She had her shoes on as she walked on the platform, and together Mama and I ran!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Hallelujah! Jesus is both Lord and King in Iringa!   

Something historic is taking place in Iringa, and I am truly honored to witness Jesus do what He loves to do; save, heal and deliver all those who come to Him.   

I am so grateful for my heroes in the faith, evangelists Reinhard Bonnke and Daniel Kolenda. They have paved the way for me and many other young evangelists to preach the simple yet powerful Gospel of Jesus Christ, where it has never been preached before. 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

I am not usually this sentimental, but please indulge me. This is my first time at a CfaN Gospel crusade, and it is also my first time being a guest evangelist at a crusade. This is not just a milestone for me; it is also a milestone for every female evangelist who has answered the call of God to preach the good news of Jesus with boldness and fire!  

 

Blessings from Iringa,

Evangelist Dr. Roselyne Ayeola

 


It is truly remarkable how our CfaN Evangelism Bootcamp graduates are laboring shoulder to shoulder with us in our CfaN Gospel crusades, and witnessing the same results! I am so proud of them, and this is proof that the strategy we are implementing is from the Lord. I am especially pleased to see so many female evangelists in our Bootcamp, such as Dr. Roselyne! In our most recent class, nearly 50% of all accepted students were females! The Lord said He would pour His spirit out on ALL flesh, and I know the Lord will continue using these mighty women of God!

Stay tuned for impactful reports coming soon!

Mission Report - Tunduma - Michael Job

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

As we start a new week, I can't think of a better message than one about the power of God to save, deliver, and heal!

Don't miss the incredible report below from Evangelist Michael Job, who preached on day 3 and day 5 in Tunduma, Tanzania (I preached there my first night!) …

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

“I am so amazed at what God is doing here in Tunduma, Tanzania! There was such excitement and anticipation of what God was going to do on the field Friday night. The people were hungry and listening to every word spoken. I preached on the power of the blood of Jesus to over 1/3 of the entire city population who came out to hear the Gospel that night, and thousands of people made a registered decision for Jesus. Curses and witchcraft were broken off their lives, and the power of the blood of Jesus set them free from the captivity and bondage of the devil. Jesus then started healing the sick, and thousands of people raised their hands, testifying that they had been healed! Here are just a few testimonies of what God did:

  • One woman who was paralyzed in her legs for 10 years, unable to walk or stand, was completely healed.
  • A young child who suffered from frequent epileptic seizures, causing her to faint while she walked, walked on stage completely healed!
  • A man with a back problem which forced him to use an aid while walking and could not sit comfortably. Tonight, he was completely healed! He was walking on the stage and dancing for Jesus.
  • One man who had issues with his foot which prevented him from walking properly, was healed. He threw his walking stick away and was dancing and rejoicing on stage.

For 9 years, one woman who used to drag herself on the ground and use big sticks to walk with (due to a waist and leg problem which left her legs paralyzed) was healed! She felt strength come into her body as we prayed. She decided to throw her stick away, get up, and walk to the platform. She was then found dancing and celebrating Jesus with me on stage.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

Jesus performed so many miracles!

 

On Sunday night (day 5, the final night), the atmosphere felt like electricity. Over 54,000 people eagerly listened to the Gospel and desired to receive God's blessing over their lives. People were miraculously healed, and again we had thousands respond to the Gospel!

  • A man who had excruciating pain in his foot was healed and began to dance on stage.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

  • Another man who was deaf found out that his left ear opened during the prayer for healing and was now able to hear out of it.
  • Another woman who couldn't stand up on her own and walk for over 4 years was healed and began to dance!
  • A week ago, this mama fell and hurt her arm. She had been unable to lift it at all. But tonight, Jesus healed her! She began to dance on stage, lifting her arms high to praise Jesus!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

  • One woman arrived at the crusade lame but left able to walk! For three years, she couldn't walk on her own, only with a walking stick. Interestingly, she didn't come to the crusade for healing. She came because she heard there were Mzungus here. She may have come for the preachers, but she left having an encounter with the One true, living God!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

  • Another younger girl was set free from demonic oppression and was healed of fainting. She said often she would have visions of an old lady coming to hit her on the back of the head. Every time she did, she would physically faint. Her mother confirmed she was often fainting. Last night at the crusade, she saw the old lady coming to hit her on the head again, but something interesting happened. As she had a vision of the old lady, the old lady burst into flames and became ashes. Since then, she hasn't fainted once! Hallelujah!
  • This little girl was born with a twisted and crooked leg, but her mama said it was like someone came and straightened out her legs. The little girl got up and began to walk normally! Hallelujah!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

I am truly humbled, grateful, and honored to be a part of this great move of God that Africa is experiencing through Operation Decapolis with Christ for all Nations. Thank you to Evangelist Daniel Kolenda for your awesome leadership, mentorship, and raising us up to fulfill the call of God on our lives - it has been such a blessing in my life. And thank you, Jesus, for confirming your word with signs, wonders, miracles, and salvation to thousands last week. To God be the glory! I am amazed at His goodness and faithfulness.

Let us surrender all of our lives to Jesus today and receive His salvation, love, freedom, and healing. He loves us so much! "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

Mission Report - Mbeya - Gary Smith

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

Here we have Evangelist Gary Smith’s reports from the Christ for all Nations Operation Decapolis Crusade in Mbeya, Tanzania.  

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

For the last several months, I was in great expectation of what the Lord was going to do in the city of Mbeya. During my international flight from Atlanta to Amsterdam,  I had a vision of creative miracles  being released throughout the entire crusade field. When I landed in the city of Mbeya, I noticed that beautiful mountains surrounded the city, and I was reminded of a scripture: “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20 NIV)  

This was the faith I had for the people of Mbeya, that nothing is impossible for the Lord Jesus! While traveling from the hotel to the crusade field, I was so excited. The sun was shining bright, a calm wind was gently blowing, and people filled the field from every direction. I was singing in my mind,  “This is the day the Lord has made!”  I just knew that the Lord was going to move powerfully, and that’s exactly what happened.

I preached on “Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord”. This message is so powerful and profound, yet so simple. Preaching a simple message that has such a major impact in people’s lives, where they will never be the same again, is worth it all.   

As the sun was setting behind the crowd, I could see thousands receiving the invitation of salvation. I looked into their eyes while proclaiming that there is only one way to salvation, and that is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Seeing all  the beautiful smiles and tears that were shed as they received Jesus  is an image that will forever be imprinted upon my heart. How I long to see people meet Jesus! It never gets old seeing people touched by the power of God and their lives forever changed.  

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Then it was time to pray for the sick. “God is willing, and He is able,” I preached. “When the leper cried out to Jesus, immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand and touched the man with leprosy. Immediately, the man was made whole. The question is, is He willing? The answer is yes!” As this message of healing was shared, there was a tangible sense that faith was rising in the people of Mbeya.  

After the prayer, we had many, many people come to testify of their healing!      

A young man who had been deaf for seven years in both ears ran up the stairs onto the stage to testify that the Lord had completely restored his hearing. “What has Jesus done for you, son?” I asked. He shouted with joy: “I could not hear for seven years, but now I can hear completely!” 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

The crowd and I roared together with a resounding HALLELUJAH! “Who is the healer?” I asked him. With arms suddenly raised high in the air in victory and a beaming smile across his face, the young Tanzanian man cried out, “JESUS IS THE HEALER, and HE HAS HEALED ME!”  

Each day, it felt like we reached another level in the power of God on that crusade field. Day 4 was “Holy Spirit Night,” and I felt an urgency to talk about what it looks like for a life to be totally surrendered to the Lord – not to just know ‘about’ Him, but to actually encounter Him. That night, the people of Mbeya experienced the love of God in a tangible way. Everywhere I looked, I saw people with tears of love, joy and peace streaming down their faces.   

I don’t even know how to adequately describe the joy of seeing people transformed by the Lord! People were weeping, crying out to the Lord, shaking from head to toe under the presence of God, people being released from demonic control. This is the POWER of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!   What an honor and privilege it is to be part of the Decade of Double Harvest!   

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

As Gary sang in his heart in Mbeya, “This is the day that the Lord has made,” every day that’s given to us is His day! And you know what Jesus said about that? “As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming when no one can work.” (John 9:4-5 NIV)  

Let’s keep working together to bring the harvest in while it is yet day!

Mission Report - Dodoma - Paul Maurer

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

Reading crusade reports from all the evangelists who preached in Operation Decapolis is like watching the Gospels being written right in front of us! What I’ve been sharing with you from each Decapolis crusade is just a tiny portion of what we’ve seen with our own eyes.

Today, we have Evangelist Paul Maurer’s reports from the Christ for all Nations Operation Decapolis Crusade in Dodoma, Tanzania.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

“The excitement on the crusade field in Dodoma started building up already in the afternoon, as a thousand counselors began their training. It had been a relatively cool and cloudy day but by the time the preparation was finished, the music started playing and people began to arrive on the field; the sun was out again, pushing the dark rain clouds away. It felt as if God was saying to us that He’s got this and something great is about to happen!

The meeting was officially opened by the local leaders and one of the CfaN Crusade organizers, Randy Roberts. People got up, rushed as close to the stage as possible and started dancing with local worship teams as well as the internationally known singer and worship leader, Christina Shusho, leading us into a joyful time of worship.

My message was called “The Two Doors,” based on John 10:9 when Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved…” I told the people there are two doors they can go through in life: “the door of Jesus” or “the door of the devil.” One door leads to life and one door leads to death. As I was ministering, I really felt like I was connecting with the people, and they were truly listening.

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

When the time came for the salvation call, we all had tears in our eyes as we looked around and saw hands raised up in the air all over the field. What a beautiful sight!

As I moved on to pray for the sick, I asked the crowd, “How many of you believe that God is able to heal?” Most of their hands went up. I explained further. “For most people, the question isn’t whether God is able to heal but whether He is willing. When Jesus met the man who had leprosy, he cried out “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.’ And to this cry, Jesus replied, “I am willing, be clean” and instantly the man was cured.”

We could see how people got excited, their faith level was built up and many began to believe and press in for their miracle. I prayed for the sick, and immediately people started coming forward with testimonies.

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

A young man who had been completely deaf in his right ear for twenty years came forward to tell his story. He came to the stage with his mother who verified that he truly had been deaf for all these years. He had been to the doctors, but they couldn’t give him any hope, nor help. But Jesus was there to touch this young man and restore his hearing! The crowd was roaring with joy and shouting, “HALLELUJAH,” as we all celebrated Jesus and this incredible miracle. Earlier that night, this man and his mother had also given their lives to Jesus and received the gift of salvation. As he was being tested on the stage, with a smile on his face he shouted out loud: “I love Jesus!”

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

There was another healing testimony that really stood out for me, on the final night of the crusade. A Muslim woman who wore a head covering came forward to say that she had come to the crusade the night before, when Evangelist Daniel Kolenda was preaching. She’d suffered severe chest pain for ten years. During the prayer for the sick, she felt something flowing from her head down through her body, and she believed she was healed in that moment. To check for her healing, she had her child jump up and down on her chest and sure enough, all the pain was gone! She was healed completely after 10 years of agony.

 

The last night of the crusade, she returned, and as I was preaching the Gospel, she decided to give her life to Jesus. She was healed the night before when Evangelist Daniel Kolenda prayed for the sick, and then she was born again as I preached the Gospel. It was a team effort. The woman was so excited at what Jesus did for her, she began to jump up and down on the platform and the crowd went wild!  It was a moment I will never forget.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

Lives are being forever changed. Eternally changed! And it’s not only the people who’ve received salvation or been healed or delivered. Over and over, I hear the evangelists themselves – and the Bootcamp interns – say, “I will never be the same again.”

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

I pray that as you read these Decapolis stories, your own heart is filled with faith and confidence in our mighty Jesus, and that you rejoice with us and the angels! Because Paul Maurer is right – it’s a team effort, and you are part of this team. This is all possible because of ministry partners like you, who stand with us to see the Decade of Double Harvest vision fulfilled.

And we’re not done yet! More evangelist reports from Operation Decapolis are coming your way…

Mission Report - Morogoro - Jared Horton

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

Evangelist Jared Horton reports from the Christ for all Nations Operation Decapolis Crusade in Iringa, Tanzania.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

“On the first night, I preached a very simple Gospel message and thousands raised their hands in response, deciding there and then to follow Jesus. Next, I prayed for the sick and rebuked every demon of sickness and disease. As I prayed, demons began to manifest throughout the field. Many had to be carried to the special tent we have for this purpose to receive further deliverance. It was clear the enemy was very unhappy about what was going to happen in Morogoro.  

At the same time, crutches started popping up above the crowd as people all over the field received their healing. Up on stage, pastors all around me wept as they witnessed this supernatural outpouring of miracles happening before their eyes. Once you’ve seen that, it changes you forever! We heard stories of God’s grace and power that were simply mind-blowing…  

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Andrew was one of the first to testify on stage. His friends brought him to the crusade on a motorcycle and gently placed him on the ground, and there he lay, flat on his back, waiting for a miracle from the Lord. Andrew hadn’t been able to walk for six months and was numb in his back and legs. But when I prayed for the sick, Andrew says he felt a surge of power enter his body. Not only was he completely healed in an instant – he also received Jesus and went home a completely changed man.

Vincent had once been a Christian but had backslidden. He came to the crusade in desperation, unable to walk and in great pain for the last five years. Horrible ulcers in his stomach and legs had made him so sick that his family and children abandoned him. During the prayer, he received a burst of strength and suddenly stood and walked again. He rededicated his life to the Lord right there.  

As soon as I arrived to the field on the final night of the crusade, I could see straight away that the crowd was much bigger than the previous nights. Before I walked up on the platform, the local Crusade Organizer told me that the pastors of Morogoro said it was the largest crowd gathering for a Gospel Crusade in the history of Morogoro, Tanzania! 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

I preached on the paralytic man from Mark, chapter 2, and cast the net one last time here in Morogoro. Thousands responded to the Gospel message. After we prayed for the sick, we heard from several people who had been healed already on the first night and now came forward to testify of their lasting miracles.

Perisian had no feeling in his legs for a year, but he received his healing on night one. He waited a few days, testing his healing repeatedly. Now he joyfully confirmed that his legs were completely normal from that moment on!

Scolastica was possessed by demons for a year, causing her to continually fall and blackout, after which she would remember nothing. Delivered on the first night, she testified that she no longer heard strange sounds as she used to, nor had she fallen since that night. Jesus had cast out the evil spirits and set her free.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Since it was our last night, I also encouraged all those who had made decisions for Christ the previous nights to do just as those four men did in chapter 2, when they carried their friend to Jesus. Those men were so determined to get their paralytic friend to Jesus that they tore off the roof and let their friend down through the hole. Many people in that house may have thought their actions were a little bit too extreme to get their friend to Jesus, but He saw it as a great step of faith and because of that, He forgave the sins of the person with paralysis and completely healed him.

I let them know that God is looking for people who will do extreme things to bring people to Jesus. I personally believe that a brand-new army has been activated to win souls here in Morogoro.  

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:14-15 NIV)

Do you realize that you are included in the verse above? Someone has to go and preach – and someone has to send them! Those are your “beautiful feet” because you are sending us to bring good news.  

Thank you so much for your love, prayers and support for this ministry. And keep an eye out for more reports coming from Operation Decapolis…

Mission Report - Iringa - Daniel King

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

We’re back home, but every time I get another report from one of the CfaN evangelists who preached during Operation Decapolis, I feel like we’re still there! With every story that pours in, the scope of what happened there becomes more apparent, and I’m excited to share some more of that joy with you. 

 

As you know, I preached one night in each of the 5 cities. Iringa was the second town I preached in, and today we’re hearing from Evangelist Dr. Daniel King, who preached there on day 1 and day 5. 

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

When I arrived in Iringa, Tanzania, I saw hundreds of posters, billboards, and banners advertising a Christ for All Nations Gospel Crusade. The bright colors immediately caught my eye, and I knew the city was ready for a move of God. The set up for this crusade was done by the CfaN crusade organizers and graduates of the CfaN Evangelism Bootcamp. As a teacher at the Evangelism Bootcamp, I was proud to see their diligence and dedication producing such incredible results.

 

On the first night of the crusade, there were already tens of thousands of people there. I preached that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” When I gave the altar call, thousands of people raised their hands to receive Jesus! Hallelujah!

 

When we prayed for the sick, people all over the field lifted their crutches into the air and started to walk. In fact, the first person on the platform was a woman who had struggled to walk. She lifted her crutch high and began to dance! There were so many glorious testimonies…

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

  • A 27-year-old woman testified that she had had constant pain in her head and stomach since she was seven – a lifetime of pain. Now she was completely pain-free!
  • A man who had not been able to walk for two years felt all pain leave him and immediately began to walk again.
  • A woman who visited a witchdoctor seeking a cure announced, "The witch doctor was not able to heal me, but tonight Jesus healed me!"

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

On the final night (Day 5), there was such a sense of joy and anticipation, with over 30,000 people lifting their voices in lively and energetic worship. Before I preached, I asked the crowd, “Who is here for the very first time?” To my joy, half the crowd lifted their hands in the air. It was a beautiful confirmation that the word of what God was doing had spread throughout Iringa.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Then I preached on the three greatest miracles in the Bible: Creation, Calvary and Pentecost. Thousands more responded to the altar call. Of course, as we always do, we then prayed for the sick, and Jesus showed up, doing what He always does – saving, healing and delivering those who call on Him.

 

  • Maria was a woman who suffered with a tumor on her hip. When we prayed, the tumor disappeared.
  • A woman who had been deaf since childhood suddenly received her hearing.
  • Another woman who had a tumor in her breast could not find it after the prayer for the sick. She was healed!

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

With these wonderful testimonies ringing in our ears, we closed the crusade with a moment of special blessing, unfurling a giant flag of Tanzania on the stage. Joined by three bishops who represent the largest associations of churches in the area, we prayed for the people of Iringa to the great joy of the crowd.

 

And in a final touching moment, my co-evangelist in this crusade, Dr. Roselyne Ayeola, gave Iringa a word from the Lord; “You are a city of light.” By now, the field was dark, and she asked everyone who had a phone to turn their flashlight on. Seeing so many lights waving throughout the field was a powerful symbol of the Christians in Iringa shining their light brightly for all to see.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

Doesn’t this delight your heart and fill it with praise for our amazing God? I find myself just lifting my hands and saying, “THANK YOU, JESUS!”

 

As these wonderful praise reports keep coming, I never forget to also thank the Lord for YOU because there is simply no way that we can do this in our strength, and we certainly can’t do it alone. It’s because of committed partners like you, who hold us up in prayer and give into this ministry, that we can see these heavenly results together. Thank you for being part of Operation Decapolis – we love you and thank God for you every day.

 

There’s more to come! I’ll be sharing more from our CfaN evangelists soon.

This is all possible because of you! Thank you!

Mission Report - Tunduma - David Rotärmel

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

I am still in awe of what happened in Tanzania during Operation Decapolis! To think we were able to pull off five simultaneous Gospel Crusades in five cities so successfully is truly a testimony of God’s hand at work!   

 

There were so many incredible reports from Tanzania, I couldn’t possibly send them all to you during the crusades! Operation Decapolis may be over, but there is still so much to share, so I’ll be highlighting each of our CfaN evangelists who preached during Operation Decapolis. This first highlight comes from Evangelist David Rotärmel, a 2020 CfaN Bootcamp Graduate, who preached on the second day and fourth day in Tunduma (I preached there my first night).  

 

Check out the powerful report below from Evangelist David Rotärmel from day 2 and day 4!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

 

What happened tonight has truly changed my life forever as an evangelist!

The title of my message was “Choose Life!”, and I challenged everyone to decide TODAY between life and death. As it says in Deuteronomy 30:19, God has given us the choice between life and death, blessings and curses, and He urges us to choose life! At the altar call, thousands decided to choose life, and surrendered their lives completely to Jesus.

 

After the preaching of the Gospel, I taught briefly on healing the sick, and as I began praying for the sick, miracles started breaking out everywhere. I’ve been to quite a few crusades by now, but this time it was unlike anything I’ve ever seen with my own eyes. Like in CfaN footage that I’ve only seen on videos, crutches were being lifted into the air all over the place and the lame began to walk. The whole crowd was going crazy and started shouting and celebrating. Miracles upon miracles began breaking out EVERYWHERE my eye could see!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

  • One man came to testify said he’d had a stroke 6 years ago. Since then, he hadn’t been unable to bend his arm or leg. But he said Jesus touched him this evening, and he demonstrated how he could move his arm and leg again! He began to dance, jump and praise Jesus.

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

  • Another lady testified that since 2002 she had never walked. She couldn’t even stand. But tonight, Jesus our healer touched her legs, and she began to walk again!

 

There was an excitement and joy in the air, that is impossible to describe. Even after we left the field, those miracles continued! While sitting at dinner, our Associate Crusade Director Thomas (from Kenya) was sharing with us that he had just come from the field where the prayer teams on the field were still praying for people, and miracles continued to break out.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

The fourth night of a crusade is when we pray for people to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Even before I started driving to the crusade field, I felt such urgency, and the deep hunger of Jesus to pour out his Spirit in a way that Tunduma has never seen before.

 

I preached on “The Law of Salvation”, a powerful message that Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke used to preach, which has already led millions of souls into the arms of Jesus. And sure enough, thousands surrendered their lives to Him, and the tangible presence of God flooded the field.

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

After the altar call, I gave a short teaching on the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and expressed once again how desperately we need Him. You could feel the anticipation rise in the crowd. For a few minutes, we sang “Hallelujah” together, until all attention was on JESUS. In complete stillness, the sweet glory of God began to fill the field. Like a bubbling spring, it erupted slowly until the whole crowd received a fresh touch and infilling of the Holy Spirit. A few minutes more, and we were wildly rocked by the power of the Spirit. It’s hard to express in words what it’s like when the Holy Spirit breaks in like a hurricane!

 

And with that mighty anointing palpable everywhere, we then prayed for the sick, and saw some beautiful miracles:

  • A woman had fallen 10 years before, breaking many bones, and had been unable to walk properly ever since. Not only could she now walk, she climbed the stairs to the stage unaided and praised the Lord, waving her stick in the air.
  • A mother who had pregnancies with twins and triplets in quick succession had terrible back problems for 20 years. She declared that Jesus had healed her and bent over for the first time in two decades! The crowd went wild as she tried to catch me on stage.

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

It sounded like stories from old-fashioned revivals – but praise God, it is not something that happened hundreds of years ago, but something that is happening right here, right now in the city of Tunduma, Tanzania. The Kingdom of God is truly breaking through here, and Jesus alone can do those things!

 

As this district is being shaken and thousands of lives will never be the same again after this week, so my life as an evangelist is also being changed and will never be the same either.

 

Many blessings from the ripe harvest field of Tunduma,

David Rotärmel


Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Mission Report

Fun Facts from Operation Decapolis!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

Now that our most recent Operation Decapolis Campaign has come to an end, I wanted to share some astonishing facts with you from what took place. My assistant, Rob Enge, sent this to me, and I thought it was interesting enough to share with you.  

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Final Recap

 

Over the course of five days:   

  • We conducted 5 simultaneous Gospel Crusades
  • In 5 Tanzanian Cities (Tunduma, Iringa, Morogoro, Dodoma & Mbeya)
  • 10 Evangelists preached (most of them Graduates of the Evangelism Bootcamp)
  • 16 Crusade Directors oversaw the initiative
  • 27 Bootcamp Interns served
  • 25,102 Volunteers served
  • 8 full-time intercessors served (3 on the ground and 5 in the USA)
  • 5 Graduation Ceremonies were conducted 27 Bootcamp Students/Interns graduated I took
  • 12 flights I spent 44 Hours and 8-minutes in-flight 
  • I spent 113 hours and 8-minutes traveling (in-flight, layovers, drive times, etc.)
  • I stayed in 7 hotels.  

553,300 people attended the meetings.  

60,752 people made documented decisions for Christ!  


Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Final Recap

Keep in mind that all of this took place in very small cities where our supermassive Gospel Crusade machine could never afford to go. In the past, we only had one “tool” in our evangelistic “toolbox” – a massive crusade sledgehammer. It was very big and could only be used in certain contexts. Now, in addition to the supermassive crusades (which we are still doing, by the way. They’re now called “Flagship Crusades”), we have a new strategy that will allow us to reach smaller, more remote, and unreached places with the Gospel while continuing to have a massive impact!  

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Final Recap

Over the next two weeks, we will be sending you the reports from each of the evangelists stationed in the five cities. Their testimonies will thrill your soul. I have a sense in my heart that we’ve had a crossing of the Jordan type moment this last week. Something has shifted in the ministry. It is palpable and awe-inspiring. God is moving in ways we’ve never seen. Prophetic words are coming to pass. God-given dreams are being fulfilled. There seems to be a Holy Spirit call that’s gone out, and people are answering it. They are coming from all directions to be a part of the greatest harvest in history. The time is now! We must seize it for Calvary’s sake!   

Be on the lookout for those reports starting next week. Thank you again for your support. We love and appreciate you.  

Yours in the Gospel,

Tanzania shall be saved!

Holy Ghost Party! - Mbeya, Tanzania - Final Day

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

Watch below a recap of Day 5

We have just concluded the final night of all five simultaneous crusades here in Tanzania. I preached last Sunday in the city of Mbeya. The crowd more than tripled from the previous night. There was an electricity in the air, and it seemed that the whole city came to hear and see what Jesus is doing!  

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 5

 

The two evangelists stationed in this city were Gary Smith and Daniel Garcia (who graduated from the Evangelism Bootcamp). Both men ministered this week with tremendous unction. I was hearing the testimonies from Mbeya even when I was preaching in other cities. You will hear more of those testimonies from Gary and Daniel themselves in the coming days.   

 

Again, I had the honor of officially graduating the Bootcamp students who have been serving here for the last couple of months as interns. Rather than going home to graduate with the rest of their classmates, they chose to stay in Tanzania after their initiation trip and help organize the Operation Decapolis Campaign. As you will know, if you have read reports from any of the previous nights, there is a group of interns stationed in each of the five cities (27 interns in all who worked under 16 CfaN crusade directors). Each night as I preached in their city, we presented them with their diplomas in front of the massive crowd in the crusade they helped organize. These have been such powerful and emotional moments.   

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 5

 

After the short graduation ceremony, I preached the Gospel, reiterating what the other two evangelists stationed in this city have preached each of the previous four nights and concluding with a short message about Jesus – the Resurrection and the Life! What a Holy Ghost party we had! There is no message in the world more thrilling than the resurrection of Jesus Christ! But we didn’t just talk about the power of the resurrection as a past-tense, historical reality. We demonstrated the power of the resurrected Jesus right there on the field! In His name, sickness still bows, and demons still flee! Once again, I worked with the Bootcamp students (now graduates), and we ministered to the sick together. Amazing miracles happened!  

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 5

  • A woman had a goiter the size of a grapefruit for three years. She was never able to touch her neck without pain. But tonight, that painful goiter completely disappeared! She enthusiastically demonstrated how she could touch the spot without pain!
  • Another woman told us that she had been mad (insane) since 1989. When mental illness was commanded to leave during prayer, her mind became completely clear. A friend of the woman confirmed her testimony, telling us that the mad woman used to walk naked, talk gibberish, swear, and hurt people. Now she has peace in her mind and is completely restored!
  • Another woman had terrible pain in her ear since birth. Her whole life, she could only hear if someone spoke loudly. Yesterday, her hearing returned completely, and all pain is gone!
  • Another lady fell down a year ago, and her leg was very swollen. She limped when she walked all the time. Yesterday she told us that she encountered the presence of the Lord and felt her leg straighten out! Now she can walk without pain and without a limp! She was even able to run on stage!  

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 5

These are but a small sampling of the many, many miracles that happened tonight and every night in every city throughout the week (25 meetings in all). Over the next two weeks, we will be sending you the reports from each of the evangelists stationed in the five cities. As you will see, many of the reports are mind-boggling! This is nothing short of a move of God!   

 

Thank you for praying for us and supporting this work financially. We are shoulder to shoulder in the harvest!

Yours in the Gospel,

Tanzania shall be saved!

Demons Manifesting - Dodoma, Tanzania - Day 4

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

Watch below a recap of Day 4

 

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 4

This morning we flew from the city of Morogoro (where I preached last night) to Dodoma (where I preached tonight) for the fourth night of our Operation Decapolis Campaign, where 5 crusades are taking place in 5 cities simultaneously! Here in Dodoma, Evangelists Joe Turnbull and Paul Maurer have been ministering since Wednesday. They have been plowing the ground and planting the seeds. Tonight, I felt a wonderful breakthrough took place. After preaching the Gospel, as soon as I began praying for the sick, demons started manifesting all over the field in extraordinary numbers. Our deliverance team had their hands full tonight.

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 2

Then I asked the five interns who have been stationed here, working in Dodoma for the last few weeks (and who also officially graduated tonight), to help me minister to the sick. We saw many amazing miracles take place:

  • One man had problems with his eye, legs, shoulders, ears and heart. He could not see out of his left eye, but his eye opened up tonight, and he can see very well. All of the pain left his body in each place where he was hurting.
  • Another man had a brace on his back. He used a cane to walk and had to use painkillers. He stopped using his cane and the brace and has been completely healed. He stomped all over the stage, showing how his back and legs had received strength.
  • One woman had severe pain in her spine and had to use crutches. After prayer, she was running on stage, showing how she had been healed.
  • Another woman had a heaviness on her and pain in her head. She could not go to university or do what she wanted to do in life because of the constant pain. All of the pain left her body during prayer.
  • Another woman had severe asthma for 5 years, but tonight all of the pain in her chest left, and she could breathe normally!
  • For 22 years, another woman was not able to bend over because of the severe pain she was suffering from. Tonight, she was relieved from this pain; all her mobility was restored.
  • A man also told us that he came Wednesday to the crusade a severe alcoholic. He has not had a drink since he was prayed for and is totally free.

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 4

Tomorrow I will fly to the fifth and final city where I will preach this week during our Operation Decapolis campaign. I have already been hearing wonderful testimonies of what God is doing there. I will graduate the Bootcamp interns stationed there and preach one more time.

 

I also look forward to greeting the Nations Church congregation live from the crusade field. The church doesn’t launch until August 15th, but hundreds of launch team members are already meeting every Sunday morning for Worship and Intercession services. As I prepare to preach in the evening, they will be meeting in Orlando in the morning. Linking the global evangelistic movement with the life of a local church is a very exciting part of what God is doing. Thank you for continuing to pray for us.

Massive Harvest - Morogoro, Tanzania - Day 3

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

Watch below a recap of Day 3

 

Tonight, I preached in Morogoro, Tanzania, the 3rd of the five cities I will visit this week. It's amazing to arrive in city after city where full crusade fields are waiting and where the harvest is ongoing. What amazing days of harvest we are living in! 

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 2

CfaN Evangelists Jared Horton and Evelina Smane have been carrying the crusade here with great effectiveness since Wednesday (and they will continue after I leave until Sunday night).

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 3

Tonight, I preached the Gospel and then worked with the Bootcamp Interns stationed here (and who officially graduated tonight) to minister to the sick. Wonderful miracles happened! Here are just a few:

  • A lady who was unable to walk because of swollen legs for two years was healed.
  • Another lady was healed after being unable to bend, walk or work due to heart problems.
  • A man who was paralyzed on the left side and unable to walk for two years was totally healed.
  • A lady who could not move her left hand for one year was healed, and many more!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 3

 

As incredible as all of these things are, each of the five cities is experiencing and giving reports on equally amazing things. I've been hearing testimonies and praise reports coming in from all sides. I can't wait to share these with you in the coming weeks!

Tomorrow I will travel to Dodoma for the fourth night of this Decapolis Campaign, and on Sunday, I will end in Mbeya. Please keep our entire team of volunteers, technicians, interns and evangelists in prayer as we press on to reap this massive harvest here in Tanzania.

Tumors Vanish, Deaf Ears Open and More! - Iringa, Tanzania - Day 2

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

 

Watch below a recap of Day 2

It has been so overwhelming to see all that God is doing. Right now, there are five cities here in Tanzania that have ongoing CfaN Gospel Crusades. Not only that, but we also have teams preaching the Gospel in other African countries and other nations around the world. And, even in Orlando, where our new local congregation meets, there is ongoing, radical evangelism on the streets. There is a soul-winning movement being birthed, and it brings so much joy to my heart to have the privilege to live in the midst of this historic moment. 

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 2

This morning I flew from Mbeya (near where I preached last night) to Iringa (where I preached tonight). Once again (as we did last night), together with Peter Vandenberg, I had the honor of officially graduating the Bootcamp interns that have been stationed here for the last six weeks helping to prepare this crusade. What an outstanding job they have done and a remarkable group of students (now Graduates) the Lord has brought together.

 

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 2

After preaching a clear Gospel message and seeing many thousands respond, together with the interns, we prayed for the sick and amazing miracles took place.

  • A woman who was bent over at the waist - almost 90 degrees - for 2 years was totally healed! She was walking all around the field with no more pain.
  • A woman with painful tumors on both sides of her waist (the size of a fist) said the tumors instantly vanished during prayer, and all pain is gone! 
  • A woman who felt a burning pain in her legs, 24 hours a day since 2018, was healed tonight. At the beginning of the service, the pain was so severe that she could not stand. By the end of the service, she was completely well. 
  • An elderly woman testified that she took a bad fall several months ago, which left her paralyzed on the left side of her body and unable to speak. Tonight, after prayer, the paralysis completely left, and her speech returned. When I asked her if she had any lingering effects from the paralysis, she said that there was only a slight numbness on the left side. I prayed for her again and right there on the platform, all remaining numbness left, and she was made completely whole!
  • A man and a woman testified that they had been deaf for many years. They were both completely healed tonight.
  • A young lady said she had been suffering for 7 years with pain in the left breast. Doctors were planning to operate, but tonight all pain completely vanished!

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021 Day 2

 

These are just a few of the many wonderful testimonies we heard. Even as we were concluding the meeting there were so countless people lining up to testify of the great miracles God had done for them.

Tomorrow I will fly to the next city (Morogoro), where the crusade is ongoing. Please continue to pray for our five teams in all five cities as we continue to preach the Gospel here in Tanzania.

A Historic Milestone - Tunduma, Tanzania - Day 1

Operation Decapolis Tanzania 2021

Watch below a recap of Day 1

Tonight we passed another historic milestone. For the first time in the history of the ministry we have successfully initiated five simultaneous mass Gospel Crusades in five different cities. As you can probably imagine, the logistical undertaking to execute this has been enormous. I can truly say that the CfaN team is the best in the world. I’m so thankful for them and proud to work with them.

 

The five cities we are in are Tunduma, Iringa, Morogoro, Dodoma and Mbeya. The crusades in each city will run tonight through Sunday (five nights each). If you are wondering how we can do this, it is because of the “multiplication” initiative we have been busy with for several years now. In each city, two evangelists are preaching two nights each. Most of these preachers are graduates of our Evangelism Bootcamp! I preach one night in each city and then move to the next, where the crusade is ongoing.

 

But it’s not just evangelists that are being multiplied. The organizers, technicians, and crusade directors are also multiplying!

 

Of course, the word “Decapolis” means 10-cities. In our first attempt (last year, during the COVID pandemic), we started with 5 crusades over two weeks (3 crusades one week and 2 the next). This time we have scaled up to 5 crusades in one week (we will do the same again in October). Then next year, we will start full-blown Decapolis Campaigns with 10 simultaneous crusades in 10 cities over two weeks! Then we will begin doing multiple Decapolis Campaigns each year, resulting in many millions of salvations per year! (This is all in addition to our super massive “Flagship Crusades” in larger population centres that we will continue to conduct).

Tonight I started in the city of Tunduma. This tiny city has not seen a crusade since Reinhard Bonnke was here in the early 90s. One-third of the population of the city showed up tonight, on the first night of the crusade. An outstanding start by any standard.

 

The city is heaving with excitement. As I sat in my room before the meeting tonight, I could hear “sound cars” driving through the streets, making announcements. I couldn’t understand the language except for one word “Kolenda.” They were announcing over and over the arrival of our team and the crusade starting tonight. I could not wait to preach and tell the people that Kolenda cannot save them. I did not come here for them to learn the name Kolenda. I came to proclaim the name above every other name, the name of Jesus! The city was filled with thousands of shouts as they cried out in unison “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!”

 

In each city, we also have Bootcamp students who have been working here for the last 6-weeks helping to organize the crusade. Tonight, those stationed in Tunduma officially graduated and Peter Vandenberg and I presented them with their diplomas and rings in front of the tens of thousands present. I will do this each night as I travel from city to city with the interns stationed there when I arrive.

Also, those same Interns/Graduates who have been working in Tunduma assisted me in praying for the sick and interviewing the testimonies tonight. They ministered with great power and anointing. I was so proud of them. Mighty miracles happened as well, including:

 

  • A man who couldn’t breathe, jump, or shout for over 15 months. Jesus healed him and he was rejoicing by jumping and dancing on stage!
  • A woman had cataracts and was unable to see for 12 months. Jesus healed her and she was able to see fingers held up from a distance!
  • Another woman had such back pain she couldn’t bend over for 6 months, and she was healed and totally able to bend over and rejoice and praise God.
  • A woman was unable to walk, but tonight she walked for the first time in 8 years! Her sister was crying, jumping and rejoicing at all that took place.
  • Another woman had an issue with her spine for 12 months and was unable to bend over at all. Jesus healed her and she was bending over, rejoicing and praising Jesus.

There were so many healing testimonies that came forward it became quite chaotic. But as Evangelist Bonnke used to say, “This is the kind of chaos we prayed for”. Each night my reports will come from another city. We will continue to share testimonies from the various evangelists in the five cities in the coming days and weeks.

Countdown to Decapolis

Last month, over 100 Evangelism Bootcamp graduates completed their 3-week whirlwind Bootcamp Initiation Trip in Tanzania, where we saw thousands upon thousands of salvations, healings, and deliverances. It’s as if the second chapter of Acts is playing out again in glorious technicolor in front of our eyes!

But this is truly just the beginning for Tanzania in 2021. Our teams have barely had a moment to shake the African dust from their shoes, and it’s already time to turn our collective focus to the next exciting series of events coming up next month!

Watch below a recap of Week Two of the students who were ministering in the city of Dodoma, Tanzania!
