With over 50 years of preaching the gospel throughout Africa, Christ for All Nation’s Founder Reinhard Bonnke had high expectations that his farewell crusade will have a major impact on the nation of Nigeria, successfully it had.
Massive crowds flocked into Lagos for the crusade, which took place on November 8th- 12th recording over millions were in attendance to listen to the well-respected German evangelist take the stage to preach the Gospel for the final time.
Previous years, Many things were recorded to have changed since Bonnke’s last crusade in Lagos over 17 years ago. In 2000, some 3.5 million people responded to Christ. However, that same hunger for the Gospel doesn’t seem to be fading in Nigeria.
Starting from the first day, thousands of people gave their lives to Christ and experienced miraculous healing.
I experienced more than an encounter,” one attendee told correspondent Peter Wooding of the Global News Alliance. “The Holy Spirit moved in a tremendous way. Myself, I have so many testimonies to give. Heart pains…and my left ear was blocked. But everything opened after the prayer of the servant of God here.
just two days into the crusade, Others said they felt the presence of God
“You feel the raw presence of God. I’ve come to receive from God as much as I can,” said another.
While this crusade marks the end of an era of preaching for Bonnke, Christ for All Nations will be left in good hands.
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda, who has led massive campaigns across Africa took over the leadership of the ministry.
“Although this crusade is Evangelist Bonnke’s final African crusade, it is only the beginning of what I believe will be a decade of supermassive harvests for Christ for all Nations,” Kolenda says. “The Lord has given me the word of a ‘Decade of Double Harvest. Now it begins. The best is yet to come!
