Our last Gospel crusade of the year ended on a very high note. The crowds more than doubled the last night. There were many tens of thousands of decisions for Christ documented (the team is still counting the decision cards) and so many amazing miracles took place!
Tonight dark, ominous clouds threatened our program and torrential rains soaked the area surrounding our field, but thankfully, we remained dry. The gospel was preached. The power of God touched thousands of people, and Jesus was glorified! In addition to our Fire conference (in the mornings) and the gospel Crusade (in the evenings), the Bootcamp students have continued their local outreaches as well. As of today, they have conducted 2,862 separate, individual outreaches and have documented 350,693 decisions for Christ!!
The road to get here has been fraught with many dangers, toils, and snares. Actually, it is miraculous that we have made it this far. One of the biggest challenges we had was with the crusade field. There was simply no place in Kumasi large enough to hold the massive crowd that we are expecting to gather—except for one. It’s a 29-acre field (equivalent of 22 American football fields) in the center of Kumasi, but it has been a “sacred” ground and has been off-limits.
Carrying on the legacy of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke through Christ for all Nations to see souls saved, Evangelist Kolenda has increased the laborers through training hundreds of evangelists in the Christ for all Nations Bootcamp! Evangelists Richard Fullwood and Evelina Smane (Bootcamp grads) were located in Kabwe – one of the five cities where Gospel crusades occurred simultaneously for five days! Keep reading for the incredible stories and testimonies they witnessed in Kabwe!
Over the course of five days during Operation Decapolis we witnessed 635,522 salvations and countless testimonies of miracle healings!
Carrying out five crusades in five different cities simultaneously was a miracle in itself, but we are blessed with an incredible team of technicians, Gospel truck drivers, and anointed crusade organizers and evangelists! The last city Evangelist Daniel Kolenda preached at during Operation Decapolis was in Lusaka (the District of Kanyama), Zambia –
Evangelist Joe Turnbull and Evangelist Tyrelle Smith preached - despite much opposition from the enemy! You might recall from a previous report about the tree that collapsed during the crusade causing the sound system to go out temporarily, and a whirlwind of dust that disrupted the hospitality tent! The crusade continued with these resilient evangelists, who were thoroughly trained by Evangelist Daniel Kolenda in our Evangelism Bootcamp, and our team witnessed incredible testimonies and multitudes give their lives to Jesus because of their determination!
"We felt the Holy Spirit and a fresh outpouring of His presence. Those who were hungry and thirsty for Jesus were filled. We began praying for the sick, and the only explanation for what happened next was that King Jesus Himself stepped onto the field as miracles began to break out all over the field."
We are still celebrating as we reflect on the hundreds of thousands of people saved during Operation Decapolis in Zambia! We conducted 5 crusades in 5 different cities simultaneously, with two evangelists (Bootcamp graduates) stationed in each city, and preaching two nights each. Truly, the Decade of Double Harvest is HERE and NOW! Evangelist Daniel Kolenda traveled to each city and preached the Gospel one night during the crusade.
The power of the glorious gospel was displayed in Williamsburg, Virginia, at the CfaN USA Crusade “Williamsburg Awakening” this past weekend. Through the preaching of the gospel, the birthplace of America has become the birthplace of a movement that will sweep across America with salvations, healings, and deliverance!
What has just happened here in Zambia is nothing short of historic and miraculous. In one week, we conducted 25 nights of crusades! I’m talking about MASSIVE Gospel Crusades in 5 different cities across the nation SIMULTANEOUSLY, resulting in HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF SALVATIONS and countless testimonies!
