Okgiwe, Nigeria

Tearing Down Walls

July 27, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

Another historic harvest has begun here in Okigwe, Nigeria!  Our campaign is taking place on a walled soccer field, but the wall had to be torn down to accommodate the crowds! This is but the first of many walls that will come down this week as the power of the Gospel shatters every barrier and obliterates every satanic defence.  

Tonight was like living in the New Testament. The Gospel was preached, thousands responded and signs and wonders accompanied the message.

  • A woman testified that she had pain in her stomach for 6 years, but tonight as I was praying for those with tumours, she said suddenly she felt something moving in her stomach and she felt a cold sensation come over her.  Afterwards the pain was totally gone!
  • As one man ascended the steps of the platform to give his testimony, the people began to talk and shout.  I said, 'Do you know this man?'  They shouted back, 'Yes'¦we know him.'  He was well known in Okigwe as a mentally ill man.  But he told me with a calm and pleasant voice that Jesus had healed him and the people began to rejoice!
  • A precious elderly lady testified that her left arm had been paralysed for the past 10 years.  But tonight, after the prayer, it was completely restored!  Hallelujah!

Tonight is only the beginning and I sense that great things are in store this week.  We covet your prayers!

Yours in the Harvest,

A City On Fire!

July 28, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

Okigwe, Nigeria is a city on fire!  The crowd nearly tripled tonight and the dynamics are awesome!  The chairman of the campaign said that he's never seen anything like this in Okigwe. After preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick, all over the field things began to happen.

Crutches and wheelchairs were being raised into the air as cripples began to walk. We could hear rejoicing coming from every direction as healings were manifested.

A paralytic was healed as well as a man brought on a stretcher foaming at the mouth along with a deaf mute.

But the greatest miracle remains the thousands of people that repented of their sins and surrendered their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ tonight.

Tomorrow I will confront the demonic powers that bind many of these people with fear.  We will break the curses and Jesus will set the captives free. Thank you for continuing to pray for us.

Yours in the Harvest,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Heaven has Kissed the Earth

July 29, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

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.

We heard wonderful testimonies tonight, including one from a little girl who had been deaf and dumb from birth, a crippled man who can now walk and a little boy who was blind for 5 years but now can see!  It is as though Heaven has kissed the earth here in Okigwe, Nigeria.

Tomorrow the Fire Conference comes to a close. Please pray for the thousands of pastors and church workers who will come hungry to receive an impartation of Holy Spirit Fire. More to come tomorrow.

Yours in the Harvest,

The Outpouring Continues!

July 30, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

The Outpouring continues in Nigeria! This morning the Fire Conference came to a climax as Peter van den Berg preached the final message and then we prayed for the thousands of pastors and church workers who were present. There was a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  We even heard testimonies of people who spontaneously received miraculous healings as the Fire was falling!  
Tonight the crowd grew to 225,000 and as the Gospel was being preached they listened with such attentiveness one could have heard a pin drop.  After the prayer of salvation we prayed once again for the baptism into the Holy Spirit; this time over the huge crowd. All kinds of manifestations, deliverances and miracles took place including the deliverance of a woman who was mentally ill for the last 8-years.  Also a boy, deaf from birth, was healed, lumps in a woman breasts vanished, a broken shoulder was healed and many more.  

We have one more meeting tomorrow night and I am sure that Jesus has saved the best for last!  Please continue to bombard Heaven for us and for the precious people of Okigwe.

A Climactic Conclusion

July 31, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

We have just returned from the final service of the Great Gospel Campaign here in Okigwe, Nigeria Tonight the crowd grew to 300,000 and the atmosphere was charged with faith and expectation. Thousands were saved and many miracles took place'¦it was truly a climatic conclusion!

This is the rainy season here in West Africa and for several weeks before we came, there were torrential downpours everyday, to the point that some of our planning team was becoming very concerned.  Yet, not one meeting was rained out this week.  The only rain we experienced were the showers of blessings that poured down from Heaven and we are all soaked!

Tonight I preached about forgiveness, and the Holy Spirit did a powerful work in the hearts of the people who not only received forgiveness from their sins but also extended forgiveness to others.

Grace, repentance, faith, restitution, forgiveness, the blood of Jesus, the breaking of curses, the Baptism into the Holy Spirit, divine healing, deliverance and loving your neighbor; this is the Gospel that has been preached this week. We have seen a transformation take place in many lives and I believe a whole region has been impacted for eternity.

Thank you so much for standing with us financially and praying for us.  What has been accomplished this week is eternal in nature and we are standing shoulder to shoulder together with you in the harvest.

Yours in the Harvest,

Decision Card Count

Dear Mission Partners,

Here are the results of last week's Gospel Campaign in Okigwe, Nigeria: Our Africa-Director let me know that last week 512,360 people responded to the Gospel, received Jesus as their Saviour and completed a Decision Card!

This campaign was our "out of season-campaign', because it took place in the Rainy Season, but the Lord miraculously held back the rain so that not one meeting was disrupted and a mighty harvest took place'¦Praise the Lord!

Thank you again for your ongoing partnership. We love and appreciate you.

Yours in the Harvest,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
