Ughelli, Nigeria

Epic Faith!

December 7, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

Greetings from Ughelli, Nigeria in Delta state, where another Great Gospel Campaign has just begun. Jesus said, "The night is coming when no man can work." The time is short and the end is near. This is why we are labouring relentlessly on the harvest field to bring in the sheaves ... shoulder to shoulder with you!

Tonight there was electricity in the air. The people are full of faith and expectation. They press in around us; they rush the vehicles as we drive down the street just to touch them in hopes that they will receive their miracle from the Lord. Their faith is epic! It reminds me of the woman with the issue of blood pressing through the crowd or blind Bartimaeus calling out on the roadside.

In response to this extravagant faith, Jesus saved and healed countless people tonight, including the young man whose broken leg was healed so thoroughly that he could run and jump'¦and many others.

Tomorrow morning the Fire Conference will begin bright and early. Thank you for committing to bombard Heaven for us this week. May Ughelli be shaken by the power of the Gospel, every bondage broken and the name of Jesus glorified.

Yours in the Harvest,

The Crowd Doubles

December 8, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

The crowd doubled in tonight's meeting here in Ughelli, Nigeria. The dynamics are extraordinary. The word is going out that Jesus is showing up in an extraordinary way.

Tonight I preached about repentance and restitution; certainly not 'feel-good' preaching. But the people want to hear the truth and we have a responsibility before God to say it like it is. The Lord also confirmed His Word with signs and wonders:

  • A man who suffered with severe asthma for 45 years said that, last night, he physically felt something coming out of his chest during the prayer for the sick and since then, his breathing has been perfectly normal!
  • A woman testified that she brought her daughter '“ a small child '“ to the meeting because she was dying of the same illness that took her son's life several months ago. But during the prayer, the daughter was suddenly healed, every symptom vanished and she is now totally well.
  • An elderly man received a double miracle: the partial blindness he had suffered with for 6 years suddenly vanished along with a severe ulcer that had plagued him for over 50 years!

These are but a small sampling of the many wonderful things that Jesus has done here already and I am sure that the best is yet to come in Jesus name!

Yours in the Harvest,

A Mighty Deliverance!

December 9, 2011

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.  We prayed over the land and declared freedom through Jesus.
 
Tonight I preached about the blood of Jesus and then together we broke every curse in His name, calling out the names of the local deities, renouncing them cutting all ties.  The barrels were filled with fetishes, charms, amulets, juju, talismans and idols.  We soaked them in gasoline and burned them in Jesus name!  I believe a mighty work of deliverance has been accomplished and the proof came quickly:

  • An mentally unstable man who was well known to the people of Ughelli, used to prowl around town naked and out of his mind.  When he came to the meeting he was naked as usual, but suddenly he came to his right mind.  The mechanics loaned him clothes so he could come to the platform and give his testimony.
  • A young man who was involved in a Satanic cult came forward and declared before the crowd that he has made a decision to follow Jesus and leave the cult forever!
  • A boy, deaf and dumb from birth can now hear and speak.  He will need to learn language, but it is clear that a miracle has transpired.
  • Several lame were also healed along with others. 

Because of time, I stopped taking testimonies and tried to close the meeting, but the people began chanting, "More, more, more."  

Tomorrow is the conclusion of the Fire Conference.  We will pray for the pastors and church workers and the Holy Spirit will fall.  Now is the time to intercede!

Rain on the Ocean

December 10, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

We have been basking in the glory of God all day.  This morning in the Fire Conference, and then again tonight in the evening meeting, the Holy Spirit fell in power and many people were filled to overflowing.  Rev. Peter Van den Berg commented to me that as the crowd was speaking in other tongues it sounded like, 'Rain falling on the ocean.'  Indeed there is nothing like the sound of multitudes receiving the 'Promise of the Father.'
 
Many mighty miracles happened tonight.  We heard testimonies of deaf ears opening, epilepsy healed and crippled legs healed.  But the greatest miracle of all was the many thousands of people that received Jesus as their Lord and saviour.  What we do here is of eternal significance.  Every soul that arrives in Heaven is one less soul in Hell.  It is that simple, that serious and that significant.  Thank you for continuing to stand with us.

Yours in the Harvest,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Merry Christmas from Ughelli!

December 11, 2011

Dear Mission Partners,

We have just concluded the final meeting of the final campaign of 2011. Our hearts are overflowing with joy and I'm sure that Heaven is rejoicing with us.  
 
More than half-a-million people attended the meetings this week. Untold numbers of healings, deliverances and baptisms into the Holy Spirit also took place.

This week our on-site team gathered together, as we always do this time of year, to celebrate Christmas together. We are a close-knit team '“ a family '“ joined together by a common passion. We want to see Hell empty and Heaven full. We consider you to be a part of our family. On behalf of Evangelist Bonnke, Rev. Peter van den Berg, the technical team, our international offices and myself we want to say Merry Christmas! Please see the picture from our Christmas party here in Ughelli as well as some of the miracles that took place tonight.

Yours in the Harvest,
