Evangelist Daniel Kolenda, who is succeeding a renowned Evangelist Reinhad Bonnke as President and Chief Executive Officer, Christ for All Nations (CFAN) with a mandate to deliver a generation to Christ, has said that his mission in Nigeria is to save people from going to hell and to deliver the country from bad leadership.
Kolenda, who like Bonnke, has carried out the largest missionary evangelistic campaigns in the most dangerous, difficult and remote locations on earth made the statement at the ongoing Bonnke’s great gospel crusade he is leading at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
He said: “I am here on behalf of the Lord Jesus. There are millions of lives out there wasting and waiting to be saved. I am, therefore, in Nigeria to deliver as many souls as possible and pray the nation out of leadership failure”.
The four-day fire crusade, which commenced Thursday, ends tomorrow. The first day witnessed a mammoth crowd of people that thronged the Stadium with their multifarious health-related problems. And to the glory of God, they got amazing healings. Miracles such as the blind receiving their sight, the lame walking, lepers getting cleansing, the deaf hearing, among others, were recorded at the crusade.
Evangelist Kolenda had, earlier on arrival from America, paid a courtesy visit to Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, and the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Michael Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, before commencing the crusade.
According to Rev. John Darku, African Director of CFAN, Bishop Akin Akinsanya, State Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Apostle David A. B. Otaru, Chairman Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Ogun State Chapter, Bishop Jeremiah Okunlola and Rev. Tunji Akintayo who are the organizers of the Bonnke crusade in the state, the 2001 event yielded tremendous expansion and numerical growth of churches in the state and led to their coming together as a body of Christ.
