A GOSPEL CELEBRATION
December 5, 2012
Dear Mission Partners,
Tonight our Gospel Campaign began here in the city of Cotonou, Benin. Evangelist Bonnke preached such a clear and powerful Gospel message I don't know how anyone could have rejected the invitation. Every time I hear the gospel it is a celebration, as if I'm hearing it for the first time. What a wonderful Jesus we serve.
Today our video crew documented the amazing story of a gentleman named Donne who was totally deaf since birth. When CfaN came to Cotonou 12 years ago he was thirty years old. Up to that point Donne had only been able to communicate through sign language, but that night, when evangelist Bonnke prayed for the sick, Jesus miraculously healed him. He said it felt like someone was sticking their fingers in his ears, liquid started pouring from them and he heard what he described like the buzzing of bees. As the buzzing faded he began to hear another sound...the massive crowd. Today, more than a decade later, he still hears and speaks perfectly '“ an enduring testimony of fruit that remains.
What Jesus will do this week will be spoken of, not only 12 years from now, but also for eternity. Thank you for standing with us in this Kingdom work. Please pray for us and the thousands that will experience the Gospel this week.
More to come'
Yours in the Gospel,
Evangelists Daniel Kolenda & Reinhard Bonnke
Together with the whole CfaN team
