A quick report from Russell Benson on the results of the Houston Reinhard Bonnke Crusade.
It was a great honor to be a part of the team at this event. We saw so many miracles, it was crazy. People got up out of wheelchairs. Girls were prayed for with eczema breakouts on their face and arms, and they disappeared before their eyes. I prayed for a Pastor’s wife on Saturday night who had arthritis and scoliosis, and as I prayed she got hit by the power of God and was healed of both. Her spine straightened up as I had her husband place his hand on it. So great, but the most amazing miracles were the thousands that were saved, and many more who were baptized in the Holy Spirit. Here’s Russ’s summary… This doesn’t include the results from the weeks of evangelism and outreach leading up to the events. It truly did, and is, impacting Houston…
What a mighty God we serve! We are rejoicing at what just took place at the Reinhard Bonnke Gospel Crusade at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, TX. Despite complications caused by the threat of event-cancelling storms, I am thrilled to report to you that we had our most fruitful USA Gospel Crusade to-date.
Saturday night, just minutes before the crusade, we were looking at 85% chance of thunderstorms throughout the evening. We prayed and moved forward in faith and the rain never came! Reinhard Bonnke was able to preach the Gospel in beautiful weather and clear skies. Again, what a mighty God we serve!
Over the two nights, a total of 27,034 people came together for worship and a powerful Word. Both nights, hundreds of people hurried to the altars to make a decision to follow Jesus as Savior after hearing the red-hot Gospel message preached by Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke.
We are praising the Lord for the 2,750 people who responded to the call of salvation and accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior at the Houston crusade.
The crusade committee and CfaN team are busy even now working to connect these precious people into the participating local churches for follow-up and discipleship. What a privilege to see people move from darkness into His marvelous light!
Each night after the call for salvation, Evangelist Daniel Kolenda prayed that God would heal those that needed a touch in their bodies. Hundreds upon hundreds testified of being healed instantly by the power of God!
God truly is moving across America. Thank you tremendously for praying and standing with us as we believe and endeavor for America to be saved. Your continued support is so appreciated as we prepare for the next event – the Great Lakes Gospel Crusade in the city of Chicago on June 26-28 at the Allstate Arena.
Please pray with us as we are laboring in His harvest fields during this critical hour.
For His Glory,
Russell K Benson
Executive Crusade Director North America
