Evangelist Daniel Kolenda of Christ For All Nations (Cfan) has arrived Calabar for the Great Gospel Crusade billed for tomorrow, Thursday 15th to Sunday, 18th February, 2018 at the Cross River University of Technology field, Ekpo Abasi.
Speaking with journalists shortly after his arrival at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport, Kolenda said he is in Calabar, as led by the Holy Spirit to preach the gospel of salvation and the healing of the sick.
He added that CFaN had rejected several offers to be hosted in different cities around the world and came to Calabar because the Holy Spirit had led them here.
Kolenda, who was welcomed on arrival by the leadership of the Christian faith in the state, said, “As with other places that we go, we believe that the Holy Spirit told us to come here.
“There are many places in the world that asked us to come, but we told all of them that we were sorry and could not accept the invitation.
“We are in Calabar because the city is where the Holy Spirit asked us to come; and so here we are.”
He said the crusade was going to be a “harvest of souls and a wonderful time for salvation in the presence of the Lord.”
“If you want to know specifically what my word for the people of Calabar is, then come to the crusade ground,” he added.
When asked how he would be different from what his predecessor used to do when he came to Calabar for crusade, Kolenda said, “We are two different people, of course; but the good news is that we have the same Jesus and the same Holy Spirit and I have been with Reinhard Bonnke for about 12 years now.
“We have travelled around the world together and about nine years ago, I took over the ministry of Christ for All Nations as President and Chief Executive Officer. And for many years now, I have been preaching in his gospel crusades.
“So, we have come in the same Spirit, the same fire and the same anointing and I believe because of the way that it works in God’s economy, nothing diminishes but only goes from gl he adsured ory to glory.
“So, whatever you experienced last time with Evangelist Bonnke, you will be in for a double portion.”
