Dear Mission Partners,
Greetings from Ughelli, Nigeria in Delta state, where another Great Gospel Campaign has just begun. Jesus said, "The night is coming when no man can work." The time is short and the end is near. This is why we are labouring relentlessly on the harvest field to bring in the sheaves ... shoulder to shoulder with you!
Tonight there was electricity in the air. The people are full of faith and expectation. They press in around us; they rush the vehicles as we drive down the street just to touch them in hopes that they will receive their miracle from the Lord. Their faith is epic! It reminds me of the woman with the issue of blood pressing through the crowd or blind Bartimaeus calling out on the roadside.
In response to this extravagant faith, Jesus saved and healed countless people tonight, including the young man whose broken leg was healed so thoroughly that he could run and jump - and many others.
Tomorrow morning the Fire Conference will begin bright and early. Thank you for committing to bombard Heaven for us this week. May Ughelli be shaken by the power of the Gospel, every bondage broken and the name of Jesus glorified.
