360 Degrees of Miracles! - Bouaké, Ivory Coast - Final Day

Dear Mission Partners,

No description would be adequate to convey the extent of what just happened a few minutes ago. First of all, the field was packed tonight with more than 210,000 people! That’s a third of the population of the whole city. When I asked how many were attending for the first time, it was the majority of the crowd. That means that literally most of the city heard the Gospel this week (with combined attendance)! Pastors told us that their churches were packed to overflowing this morning – so much so, they thought they would have to turn people away.

The entire crusade has been amazing, but tonight went above and beyond. After I preached the Gospel and prayed for the sick, there was a moment of silence. Usually there is more excitement than that. I wondered for a second if anyone had been healed. Then, all of a sudden, it was as if something shifted. People started shouting, screaming and dancing. People were falling under the power of the Holy Spirit. Demons were manifesting. It was total chaos. Crutches were going up in the air. I heard them shouting from my right, my left, in front and behind – everywhere I looked something amazing was happening. It was 360 degrees of miracles!

I interviewed two TOTALLY BLIND women who were healed (one of them muslim).

Several cripples can now walk, including a man who was totally paralyzed on his left side – completely unable to move his left arm or leg. Tonight, he was literally marching on the platform.

There was a baby who had been suffering with a terrible lung infection since November of 2014, but we heard that last night she was healed. Today, they took her to the hospital for a confirmation, and the doctors didn’t even believe she’d ever had anything wrong with her.

A woman with kidney failure who had been on dialysis for three years was also healed last night, and she told us that she went to the doctor today and they confirmed that she is perfectly well!

This is just a small sampling of the many amazing things Jesus has done here.

As we prepare to leave Bouaké, I must confess that my heart is a bit heavy. You may have heard that we had to cancel the next crusade scheduled to take place in Burkina Faso due to lack of funds. When I think about all that has happened this week, it breaks my heart that we will miss the opportunity to see hundreds of thousands of souls saved next month. The following crusade is also not funded. We are trusting the Lord for a financial breakthrough to see it happen. There is still time to save it. If you are willing to help us you can make a donation through our website: www.CfaN.org

Thank you so much for praying for us this week. Many thousands of lives have been impacted for eternity. I will come back to you with a decision card count as soon as it’s in.  

Yours in the Gospel,

A Mighty Outpouring! - Bouaké, Ivory Coast

Dear Mission Partners,

This morning our Fire Conference came to a conclusion as Peter Vandenberg and I ministered to about 10,000 delegates – pastors and leaders from the region. We prayed, as usual, for them to receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It was glorious! I believe a spark of revival has been lit here in Bouaké, Ivory Coast, that will continue with the local Body of Christ long after we’ve gone.

Tonight, we saw another significant increase in attendance. At this point I’m not sure how the field will accommodate the crowd tomorrow night! 

After preaching the Gospel, praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and praying for the sick, the Lord was faithful to heal many sick people. Also, as is typical when the Holy Spirit falls, many demoniacs manifested and were ministered to. Several cripples were healed. A woman who had been deaf in one ear since birth was healed. A woman said a large, rock hard, growth in her stomach vanished. A paralyzed boy stood and walked…and many more.

Tomorrow is the last night of this campaign. Please continue to pray for us.

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

An Overwhelming Response - Ivory Coast


Burning Idols, Charms & Juju in Ivory Coast

Posted by Evangelist Daniel Kolenda on Friday, January 29, 2016

Dear Mission Partners,

It was another huge day here in Bouaké, Ivory Coast. The crowd more than doubled tonight. I preached about the power in the blood of Jesus, and the response was overwhelming. So many people gave their lives to the Lord!
There were also many wonderful miracles including: several cripples and paralytics that were healed, a mad man who came to his right mind, and a woman born deaf and mute who heard and spoke for the first time tonight! In fact, her left ear opened on the platform in front of the crowd. What an amazing night.

Tomorrow, we will pray for the baptism into the Holy Spirit in both the Fire Conference in the morning, and the evangelistic meeting in the evening. Please continue to pray for us.

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Heaven is Rejoicing! - Ivory Coast

Dear Mission Partners,

The first night of our Gospel campaign here in Boauké, Ivory Coast has just ended minutes ago. I am so amazed by the level of hunger and expectancy in this small place. As I preached, there was an overwhelming response from the people who were hanging on every word. I have already fallen in love with Boauké and this is only the first day!

After preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick, miracles broke out all over the field. The sound of rejoicing from the crowd grew so loud that I don’t think the people could hear me praying or talking anymore.

The very first testimony was from a man who was paralyzed for seven years! His sister brought him to the meeting tonight by taxi, and he was sitting on the ground. As I prayed for the sick, he said he lifted his hand and it began to shake. He didn’t understand what was happening to him and suddenly he collapsed under the power of the Holy Spirit. Then he heard me say that he should get up and walk. He tried to move his leg and realized it felt very “light.” He tried the other leg and it was also moving. He stood to his feet and began to walk for the first time in seven years!

We also heard from a woman who was paralyzed for five years, an elderly lady who was blind and also a woman who had not had menstruation for 10 years that started during the prayer! A lady who was healed after being unable to walk for the past four years. Not everyone healed tonight was Christian. That’s all I can say. But Jesus touched people of every religion indiscriminately. I’m sure there is great rejoicing in Heaven tonight.

Thank you for praying. Please continue. The best is yet to come.

Yours in the Gospel,

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

Arrival in Ivory Coast!

Watch this video of Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and Peter van den Berg, who, along with other members of the CfaN Team, recently arrived in Bouake, Ivory Coast. This is the first time CfaN has been back to the Ivory Coast since 1991, where the average age is only 18 years old!

Bouaké, Ivory Coast

The City and Religion

Bouaké is an important economic center in the heart of Côte d'Ivoire. It is located in the Vallée du Bandama region and has always drawn many different ethnic groups. The country has about 25 million inhabitants comprised of approximately 60 different ethnic groups. About 40% are Muslim and only around 30% are Christian. There are numerous animists and followers of ancient cults. Due to the diversity of the ethnic groups there is a stark contrast in the traditions and languages, however, the official language is French.

In 1893 France declared Côte d'Ivoire a French colony. Close to the village of Gebekekro, in the heart of the savannah, French troops established a military camp in 1898. Under the name of Bouaké, this village was governed according to European standards. In 1904 the first post office was established and in 1907 a telegraph. Ever since then the town has grown rapidly. To this day, the typical separation implemented by French colonialization is visible: One part is made up of a haphazardly developed native settlement, separated by railway tracks from the grid-square European settlement.

Even though the city of Bouaké has about 1.5 million inhabitants and is likely the second largest in the country, it has remained rural and “African,” in comparison to the metropole of Abidjan at the coast. As most African cities south of the Sahara, Bouaké is a comparatively “young” city. On average, the population is just under 20 years of age.


Agriculture is the primary economic sector, mainly the cultivation of cocoa and cotton. You will find fields of vegetables and rice or large mango trees right in the middle of the city. In 1921 a textile mill was established, being the first industrial endeavor in the whole country. Oil and soap are also produced from cotton seed there, with France as the main trading partner.
