You can celebrate with us over what God just did in Chicago-land! We experienced two powerful nights of ministry with Evangelists Reinhard Bonnke and Daniel Kolenda at the Allstate Arena for the Great Lakes Reinhard Bonnke Gospel Crusade on June 26th and 27th. Many lives were changed forever!

In the weeks leading up to the meetings, we were overflowing with anticipation as over 460 churches across denominational, cultural, and racial lines worked together, prayed together, and believed that their region would be shaken with the power of God. We heard from many pastors that it has literally been decades since the churches worked together at this level and at with such unity! Even in advance of the crusade, hundreds of people came to Jesus on the streets at pre-crusade outreaches and many dozens testified of being healed and filled with the Holy Spirit.

On the first night of the crusade, despite rain and other obstacles, the Allstate Arena filled with enthusiastic people ready for this historic moment. The Planetshakers worship team from Australia led the crowd in anointed praise and worship that charged and prepared the atmosphere with enthusiasm and increased the expectation of the evening. Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preached a red-hot Gospel message to the thousands in attendance with authority and clarity. As he gave the call to respond to the message of the Gospel and the grace of Jesus Christ, hundreds quickly streamed forward to “say YES to Jesus!” What a mighty God we serve! Evangelist Daniel Kolenda then took the stage and prayed that God would heal all those in attendance. It was amazing to see the hundreds that also came forward testify of being touched by the power of God and healed.

The second night of the crusade was even more powerful. Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke once again preached a powerful Gospel message and hundreds responded to the call of salvation again. After the altar call he prayed for all that wanted to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The expectancy and energy reached a peak just before he prayed. Then the Allstate Arena erupted and thundered with the sound of the Glory of God. It is hard to even explain the sound and feeling we all experienced that night. Wow, is all I can say! We know thousands were mightily touched with the power and presence of God.

Over these two nights, well over 18,000 people came together to worship and participate in the Gospel Crusade. Both nights hundreds of people hurried to the altars to make a decision to follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We are praising the Lord that a total of nearly 2,000 people made decisions for Jesus at the arena and at crusade events leading up to the crusade.

The crusade committee and CfaN team are right now hard at work sending these decision cards to local churches all over Chicago-land for follow-up from local churches. What a privilege to be a part of an end-time outpouring!

Despite the bad news in the media, we believe that God has Good News for his people. Let’s be encouraged that God is not done as the harvest is indeed ripe for the reaping. Thank you for your prayers and support that make all of this possible. Our next crusade is in the city of Atlanta at the Philips Arena on March 5th and 6thPlease click this link to learn more and get involved.

Dear friend,

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
