Evangelist Daniel Kolenda who took over the mantle from Rev Reinhard Bonnke has arrived Port Harcourt for a 4-day miracle crusade billed to hold at the new sandfill on LNG road along Eastern Bye-pass, Port Harcourt.
Evangelist Kolenda touched down at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa at about 7.20 pm Wednesday.
Briefing newsmen shortly after his arrival, Kolenda expressed optimism that healing and diverse miracles will take place during the crusade.
Kolenda said though a lot of nations had invited him, God told him to come to Port Harcourt.
Correspondent, Brave Dickson reports that the mega crusade organised by Christ For All Nations in conjunction with the Rivers State Christian community begins today Thursday till Sunday and starts at 3 pm daily
The newly sand filled area, though still generating reactions mainly because the purpose for which it was sand filled by the state government is yet to be made public, has however, brought commendations after governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State approved the area for the hosting of the mega crusade
Recall that prior to the arrival of Evangelist Kolenda, a pre-arrival press conference was held in Port Harcourt to sensitize the populace on the need to attend the mega crusade.
In his remarks, a co-chairman of the crusade central committee, Apostle Zilly Aggrey said the hosting of the crusade at this time was a prophetic opportunity aimed at liberating millions of people in the state through the power of God in Evangelist Kolenda.
Apostle Aggrey said, “we of the Christian community for some years now have been looking for a place in the state that will be central for the hosting of a mega crusade such as this forthcoming one and we couldn’t see such a place in the state.
“Miraculously, Governor Wike embarked on sand filling a section of the Eastern Bye-pass which is befitting for the hosting of this mega crusade and has equally approved it for the crusade.
“I believe that this crusade is going to impact positively on the state with divine blessings that will transform the state and its citizens.
“We call on everyone to see the attending of the crusade as an opportunity that will change one’s destiny for life”.
On his part, the Africa Coordinator of the Christ For All Nations, Rev John Darku said the crusade will to a large extent multiply the church of Jesus Christ in the state.
“Over one million people are expected to be in attendance and I believe a lot of souls will be won into the kingdom of God.”
