Douala, Cameroon

Only Jesus

March 26, 2015

Dear Mission Partners,

It’s hard to believe the first full day of our Gospel Campaign here in Douala, Cameroon has already come to an end. I only arrived at 2:30 this morning and was already preaching in the Fire Conference by 7:00 am. Then our open air, evening meeting started just a few hours later. Thank you to the many of you who are praying for us…I can personally feel your prayers at work.

Many lame people were healed tonightThe campaign started tonight with a bang. A government representative was sent to open the meeting and read a very diplomatic speech about how we (the Christians) were joining our prayers with those in the mosques and temples for Cameroon. This, he believed, was the answer for the problems of the nation. When I finally got the microphone, I thanked the representative for his kind words, but respectfully disagreed with him. I told the people that I am also a representative and I have come in the name above all names – the only name given under heaven whereby men might be saved - the name of Jesus. Only Jesus is the answer for Cameroon. Every other solution is a dead-end road.

The invitation for salvation was enormous. Many thousands surrendered their lives to Christ and so many lame were healed I had to take several testimonies at a time. Also, a young man with an injured arm was so healed he began doing pushups on the platform. A woman who was lame from rheumatism was healed along with a boy who had never walked in his life. The atmosphere is electric. I can tell this will be a historic week for Douala!

Thank you for continuing to pray for us.

Yours in the Gospel,

Curses Broken!

March 27, 2015

Dear Missions Partner,

Amazing things continue to happen here in Douala, Cameroon. Tonight the crowd more than doubled as word is spreading through town of what Jesus is doing here

In addition to preaching about the blood of Jesus and praying for the sick we also took authority over the curses of the land, well known to the people of this region. We called them by name and broke their power in the name of Jesus. We burned the fetishes, charms, amulets, and idols of witchcraft, and rejoiced as Jesus set so many people free.

Tomorrow, the Fire Conference will come to a climax as Peter van den Berg and I pray for the pastors and church workers to receive the baptism in to the Holy Spirit. It will be a defining moment for Douala. Please continue to pray for us. The best is yet to come.

Yours in the Gospel,

Howling Demons!

March 28, 2015

Dear Mission Partners,

Delivered and filled with the Holy SpiritThis morning the Fire Conference concluded with a powerful message from Peter van den Berg. Over the years, Peter has preached to millions of pastors and church workers through the Fire Conferences. His messages are some of the most poignant I’ve ever heard. There were so many that were gloriously filled with the Holy Spirit, and we even heard a healing testimony. The Holy Spirit is a healing spirit!

Tonight after preaching the Gospel, we also prayed over the many new believers to receive the Baptism into the Holy Spirit. What was extraordinary was the number of people that began manifesting demons. Throughout the rest of the night, through the healing testimonies and prayers, eerie cries and howls could be heard from our deliverance tent (we call it “The Snake Pit”) where demons were being cast out and people were getting set free. It seems that when the Holy Spirit falls, the demons become highly uncomfortable!

Wonderful miracles also took place:

•    A lame man, whose legs were crushed in an accident 8 years ago, was dancing and rejoicing on the platform!

•    A woman with severe infections in her mouth, so painful that she had difficulty chewing, suddenly felt the power of God come on her. She could slap her cheeks – all  pain was gone.

•    A demon possessed boy was delivered and filled with the Holy Spirit!

Tomorrow our campaign will conclude here in Douala, Cameroon. Every night the crowd has been nearly doubling. There is great momentum here, and we are believing for one more huge harvest tomorrow. Thank you for continuing to pray for us.

A Night of Blessing

March 29, 2015

Dear Mission Partners,

Just moments ago, I left the field after the final meeting of the Gospel Campaign here in Douala, Cameroon. 370,000 people attended the four days of meetings, and many thousands responded to the Gospel. After I preached the Gospel and prayed for the sick, we heard wonderful testimonies. For example, a woman suffering from an issue of blood was healed. The lump in a woman’s breast vanished, and all pain left. A woman with multiple painful fibroids was healed…and many more.

Praying for our faithful partners around the worldAfter taking testimonies, I pronounced blessing after blessing upon the nation, the city, the economy, the churches and the people gathered. They received it with joy and great faith. We depart now with a confidence that something historic has taken place this week. Douala will never be the same again in Jesus name!

Thank you again for praying for us and for standing with us financially. We really do consider you a part of the team and trust the Lord to bless you richly for your partnership in the Gospel.

Thank you!

Yours in the Gospel,

Decision Card Count

Dear Mission Partners,

I’ve just received the report from Douala that 212,980 decision cards were registered during the campaign with over 370,000 that were in attendance throughout the four nights! We are rejoicing with the angels in Heaven over the many lives that had an encounter with Jesus Christ! I can’t say thank you enough for your continued support as we do everything we can to  advance the Gospel to Africa, and across the world!

Back in 1987 we had a campaign in Douala with 70,000 that made decisions for Jesus. In 1992, we were in Douala again with another 30,000 that registered decision cards! This campaign faced many obstacles to that point that it almost did not happen, but your prayers helped Cameroon to see a mighty harvest beyond any that we’ve seen before! These believers have been ushered into the local churches and we are believing that the Lord will continue to powerfully touch the nation of Cameroon with the power of Jesus!

Yours in the Gospel,
