We have just returned from the second night of our gospel crusade here in Lomé, Togo. It already appears that the field is going to be far too small. I preached about the blood of Jesus and the Holy Spirit demonstrated its power.
Tonight marks the beginning of our first Gospel Crusade of the year here in Lomé, Togo. You may remember that we were scheduled to be here several weeks ago, but due to some insurmountable difficulties at the border, we had to postpone the event last minute.
CfaN was last in Lome in 2011! Lome is the capital and the largest city of Togo. Located at the Gulf of Guinea, Lome is the country's administrative and industrial center and its chief port. The city has seen massive growth in recent times due to an oil refinery in the east.
We have some really interesting pictures of our adventures for you to enjoy today. It began with a visit to the Governor of Imo State here in Owerri, Nigeria. At the governor’s mansion I was invited to speak to the governor, the first lady, the deputy governor and all the top cabinet leaders of the state. It was a precious opportunity to represent Jesus to those in high places.
Today marks the 44th year anniversary of the founding of CfaN. December 6th, 1974 Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke and his wife started this amazing journey that has resulted in more than 78-million people coming to Christ in some of the largest evangelistic events in history. And what better way to celebrate than with a Gospel Crusade. Tonight was the kick-off of our campaign here in Owerri, Nigeria – the final crusade of 2018. I’m here, as always, with Peter Vandenberg and joined once again by Eddie James who is leading us in worship.
The last two days of our Gospel Crusade in Port Harcourt, Nigeria were a little taste of heaven on earth! The massive crowd was heaving during praise and worship. Locals told us that they had never seen such a crowd in Port Harcourt before. The governor, his wife and several top officials sat on the platform each night. I preached the gospel with all my might, but beyond that the Lord confirmed His Word over and over with mighty signs and wonders.
