Crusade—Thank you so much for praying for us!
We had a total different crusade compared to with our last one. David could feel many enormous attacks from the enemy from different angles. The darkness is always active in an event like that. David couldn’t sleep for two nights because of it.
But PRAISE GOD, it was all worth it! 48 people gave their lives to Jesus and many were delivered from evil spirits. In some meetings the Holy Spirit could be felt in an outstanding way. Some came to the front with deep conviction and in tears crying out to God to save them. It was a real victory to see some witchcraft items burnt to ashes – Praise God! David also was very unexpectedly surprised by meeting a Swiss woman who is married to a Tanzanian and lives there attending the host church of the crusade! They spoke Swiss German.
Press the following: 'Tanzania, Singida Crusade' to view our video report of the crusade to see some scenes for yourself.
It was really an amazing experience to baptise so many people in the lake Kindai. They all queued up and some were very emotional as being baptised is such a key thing in a Christian’s life. Everyone received teaching about it beforehand and they understood exactly what they were doing.
Steep learning curve
We have learnt extremely much regarding how to run crusades in the future. David had many hours of conversations especially with Dr Mauza who is in charge of all the denominations of Tanzania. He is a very wise, humble and experienced man and David could learn so much from him as well as the hosting bishop. David and the team are very excited for the future!
HUGE thank you for your prayer support!
Deliverance and Baptism of the Holy Spirit
After they came out of the lake we prayed for them all. Some needed deliverance as demons manifested in them. One girl, (not pictured) particularly was in pain all over her body as we were praying. We tried to cast it out but it wouldn’t shift first. After a while we were not sure if that girl was free or not. So, we prayed for the baptism of the Holy Spirit which didn’t happen. Then we continued with deliverance and finally she fell onto the ground and was free. After that the Holy Spirit came and she spoke in tongues and didn’t want to stop. But we were under time pressure to go to the final crusade meeting in the afternoon. There were lots of individual testimonies that afternoon. It was just glorious to see God at work. Every convert filled in a decision card and will be followed up. Please pray for them as no doubt the enemy will try everything to attack them.
