Tonight we passed another historic milestone. For the first time in the history of the ministry, we have successfully initiated five simultaneous mass Gospel Crusades in five different cities. As you can probably imagine, the logistical undertaking to execute this has been enormous. I can truly say that the CfaN team is the best in the world. I’m so thankful for them and proud to work with them.
The five cities we are in are Tunduma, Iringa, Morogoro, Dodoma and Mbeya. The crusades in each city will run tonight through Sunday (five nights each). If you are wondering how we can do this, it is because of the “multiplication” initiative we have been busy with for several years now. In each city, two evangelists are preaching two nights each. Most of these preachers are graduates of our Evangelism Bootcamp! I preach one night in each city and then move to the next, where the crusade is ongoing.
But it’s not just evangelists that are being multiplied. The organisers, technicians, and crusade directors are also multiplying!
Of course, the word “Decapolis” means 10-cities. In our first attempt (last year, during the COVID pandemic), we started with 5 crusades over two weeks (3 crusades one week and 2 the next). This time we have scaled up to 5 crusades in one week (we will do the same again in October). Then next year, we will start full-blown Decapolis Campaigns with 10 simultaneous crusades in 10 cities over two weeks! Then we will begin doing multiple Decapolis Campaigns each year, resulting in many millions of salvations per year! (This is all in addition to our supermassive “Flagship Crusades” in larger population centres that we will continue to conduct).
