We have just returned from another wonderful crusade tonight. The response of the people was overwhelming and full of faith. What a privilege it is to preach the Gospel to such hungry people. Below is Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke’s report from tonight:
(By Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke)
Dear Mission – Partners,
Although it was a very rainy day today (I’ve never seen such horrendous downpours), in the evening the crowd jumped to 250,000. The Word of God was powerfully and...

Tonight’s attendance rose to 150,000. Okitipupa is gripped by thelife-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Evangelist Daniel Kolenda passionately preached from Luke 19 on Zacchaeus, where the truths of forgiveness and restitution merge. The huge crowd was deeply moved.
No matter what, truth remains truth and the Lord says, “Give me your heart,” not your opinion. Jesus is the truth; He cannot be a controversy. We cannot judge truth; it judges us. It is a fact beyond debate. We...

Another mighty harvest of souls has just come in. The crowd grew again to 220,000 and the atmosphere was electric. We are all basking in the afterglow of what God has done right before our very eyes. Tonight I told the people, “Righteousness exalts a nation…” The hand of the Lord will lift up any nation, tribe or people that will repent and turn to Him. This happened tonight in epic fashion. The Lord not only saved but also healed multitudes of people.
Tonight we heard...

160,000 people attended tonight’s meeting on the rolling hillside crusade ground here in Afikpo, Nigeria. In five days of meetings we have an opportunity to preach the full-Gospel, including some of the less popular topics. Tonight I emphasized the themes of restitution and repentance: “Let him who stole steal no more.” I can truly say that the people responded with Joy, turning from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God.
Here are some of the miracles that...

Dear Partners in the Harvest,
Tonight’s attendance climbed to 300,000 in Ibadan. It was an awesome meeting. God’s glory rested on young and old like a wonderful but heavy weight. What an altar-call and what outpouring of the healing-mercies of Jesus. Evangelist Daniel Kolenda ministered tonight with a great authority and we heard many wonderful testimonies:
A woman with cervical cancer for 3 years suddenly had a discharge last night during the payer and has not had any...

Momentum is building here in Sapele meeting by meeting on every front. Word is spreading through Delta state that Jesus is here, mighty things are happening and the people are running. Tonight the crowd increased to 135,000 and the response level was absolutely amazing! I feel as though I am preaching to dry sponges that soak up every word and savor it with joy. What a privilege to preach to such people!
Tonight we brought out the big metal barrels and burned...

Tonight, when we arrived at the Crusade ground we discovered that someone had brought an entire idolatrous shrine to be destroyed. Together with idols, charms, fetishes and many occult paraphernalia we burned it and the people rejoiced. I also called out the local curses – names so feared most people are not willing to speak them out loud – one by one I took authority over them, breaking them off the people of Ugep in the name of Jesus. The joy was uncontainable. Th...

This morning the Fire Conference venue was packed by 5:30 am. Rev Peter Vandenburg and I preached as the sun was still rising over Numan, but the people were wide-awake. Tomorrow is “Holy Spirit Day” and the conclusion of the Fire Conference. I am sure that there will be a mighty outpouring of the Fire of God.
Tonight, 200,000 people attended the meeting. The crowd seemed to stretch to the horizon. I’m sure that most could not see the preacher on the platform, but...

We have just returned from tonight’s meeting where many thousands of people received Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. I preached about restitution, challenging them to clean the garbage out of their lives and they responded overwhelmingly. There are no words to describe the privilege of leading multitudes of hungry souls into the arms of Jesus.
After the prayer of salvation, it was time to pray for the sick. I asked the people to sing and worship the...

250,000 attend 3rd night of the Christ for all Nations campaign in Karu, Nigeria - August 2010
Hold on to your hats! When we arrived at the field tonight we saw how piles of stolen belongings had been surrendered by thieves to be turned over to the authorities. Also, many idols and witchcraft items were brought to be burned! Once they went up in smoke I began to pray for the people breaking every devilish curse in the mighty name of Jesus and amazing...

Dear Mission Partners,
We’ve just returned from tonight’s meeting where 130,000 attended. I preached about the power of the blood of Jesus and after leading thousands in the prayer of salvation we appropriated the power of that blood breaking every curse over the people and the land in the name of Jesus! The people brought piles of occult charms, fetishes and “juju” to be burned just like in Acts 19:19 and as the flames leaped skyward the huge crowd looked like a...

Just moments ago, we left the crusade field where 250,000 people gathered to hear the Gospel. I preached a classic message about the blood of Jesus and then we appropriated the power of that blood with great effect. Many thousands prayed with me to receive salvation and then I began to call out the traditional curses one by one, breaking their power in the name of Jesus!
Evangelist Bonnke then stepped in and began to pray for the sick. Bursts of joy rang out from...

We are on the front lines of the battle here in Asaba. The enemy is pushing, but we are pushing back and the Gates of Hell will not prevail against us!
I preached tonight on the power of the blood of Jesus. It seemed like the people were hanging on every word and drinking it all in. After praying for salvation we burned barrels of items associated with idolatry and the occult just like they did in Acts 19. With the flames still leaping into the air I began to call...

We’ve just returned from tonight’s meeting here in Lokoja, Nigeria. As we were sitting on the platform, the archbishop of the Anglican Communion leaned over to Rev. Peter van den Berg and said, “The thing I love about the ministry of Christ for all Nations is that the Gospel is given preeminence and preached without apology and there are few who do that.” We consider that a true compliment.
Indeed, the Gospel was proclaimed tonight with boldness. I preached about the...

What a joy it is to preach to the people here in Lome, Togo. This is a preacher’s paradise! The people are so hungry, so responsive and so attentive. It is no wonder that Jesus responds to them with such wonderful miracles.
A local worship pastor told us that one year ago he was singing and suddenly his voice was gone. For the past year he has not been able to sing or speak, but tonight, he said that as the prayer for the sick he felt what he described as “a...

Tonight I preached about the precious blood of Jesus. The people were so responsive and attentive, drinking in every word and making decisions to follow Jesus in huge numbers! Then I prayed over them, breaking every devilish curse in the name of Jesus and miracles began to pop up like popcorn. From the front of the to the back people were rejoicing everywhere as the power of God swept across the field healing bodies and setting captives free.

Dear Missions Partners,
The Fire Conference this morning was truly remarkable. I was in the midst of preaching about the fire of God when the Holy Spirit fell. The crowd erupted into spontaneous and fervent prayer, which went on and on. I was taken back and overwhelmed…I never did finish my sermon! We have already experienced a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit and we haven’t even come to the final day yet! I guess Jesus couldn’t wait until tomorrow.

Dear Mission Partners,
This morning the rain poured down on the Fire Conference (see the attached picture). Rev Peter van den Berg and I preached under umbrellas and had to cut the meeting short, but the Holy Spirit was there in a powerful way. In fact a blind woman was miraculously healed during that short, rained out meeting.
She testified tonight that the doctors had given her up saying that her blindness was a hopeless case so she sought out an alternative remedy...

Dear Mission Partners,
Momentum continues to build here in Ughelli, Nigeria. The crowed double AGAIN tonight over last night and everyone is on cloud #9.
The land we are in is desperately in need of deliverance. When we arrived in Ughelli, the local king brought me a plate with soil and a locked padlock. He told me that the land is under a curse and asked if we would pray. As as prophetic and a symbolic act, I unlocked the lock and then laid my hands on the soil. W...

Dear Mission Partners,
Another powerful meeting has just come to a close here in Agbani, Nigeria. Along with the thousands that received salvation we prayed for every curse to be broken and many were delivered touched and healed.
The Gospel is more than a message – it is the power of God. That is why it must not only be preached but also demonstrated. We preach it and then we expect it to happen. The result is not simply mental ascent to a statement of theological...
