Greg Laurie’s evangelistic crusade in Philly had about 20,000 in attendance, and about 2,000 born again!
Reinhard Bonnke’s evangelistic crusade in Orlando had about 20,000 in attendance and about 2,000 born again!
(German Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preaches at Amway Stadium in Orlando Floriday, right).
Rather than talk a lot, I want to share photos with you. I couldn’t be in two places at once, or I’d love to have covered the Laurie crusade.
I was in the press box at the Orlando crusade and I had the “eagle’s nest” view. Just let me say that I wept as I saw people coming down from the top tiers of the Amway Stadium in Orlando to receive Christ. The scene reminded me of Billy Graham crusades that I saw in my youth. To actually see this with my own eyes and bring this story to you and to others blessed me immensely. Nothing thrills me more than seeing a new child birthed into the kingdom of heaven. Praise GOD!!
Reinhard Bonnke preached the gospel, and hundreds came forward for salvation and were met by trained counselors who prayed with them and helped them to fill out decision cards. Each person that is born again is invited to a local church.
After Evangelist Bonnke preaches, his successor, Evangelist Daniel Kolenda, comes to the podium to pray for the sick.
Man with knee injury was healed.
Woman with high blood pressure healed, and her blood pressure completely normal the next day.
Woman blinded in right eye, healed.
Woman with debilitating asthma healed and could breathe normally again.
There were more, but I cannot remember or document them all. Both evangelists stressed that the most outstanding miracles both evenings were the people who were born again.
The preaching was outstanding and the gospel never made more clear. Hallelujah!
The article I wrote for Christianity Today is actually a contributing report and I will notify you when it is released. THANK YOU for praying! We endured an 18 hour drive to get there and will endure another 18 hour drive to get home (beginning tomorrow), but it was WORTH IT! Praise God!
