Lead Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and the Christ for All Nations (CfaN) team just concluded four days of historic outreach to the Republic of the Congo, also known as Congo-Brazzaville. God’s power to save and to heal was active in every session. Tens of thousands documented decisions to follow Jesus were recorded, and new believers were ushered into local churches for follow-up and discipleship.

Problems transporting the four trucks of technical equipment across Africa forced CfaN to postpone the Gospel Outreach Campaign to Congo-Brazzaville by more than a month. CfaN’s transport team spent more than eight weeks driving four tractor-trailer trucks from Nigeria to Congo-Brazzaville. Along the route, they encountered numerous armed checkpoints, bureaucratic delays, washed-out roads, nearly catastrophic wrecks, mudslides, and deadly gun violence.

Evangelist Kolenda relayed that the team “narrowly escaped death a couple of times. There were shootouts on the road. They crossed active war zones. They showed us today a video of bullets flying inches from their cars, as armed guards were leading them through war zones. That’s what it took to get to this place.”

Yet, the men who undertook the perilous journey say it was 100% worth it.

The local pastors, bishops and police reported that these meetings were the largest ever seen in their country – larger even than the most important political rallies. The profile of the event caught the attention of those in the highest places of power. Even the President’s wife invited Evangelist Kolenda to visit the state palace for fellowship and prayer.

Evangelist Kolenda relayed, “We’ve seen salvations, miracles, deliverances, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the power of God invading an entire region. This city has truly been shaken by the power of the Gospel this week. That’s what it’s all about. That’s why we pay the price that we pay. Because Jesus is worthy… He loves these people. He died for them and its worth us taking every risk to reach them.”

Congo-Brazzaville will undoubtedly never be the same.
