German-born evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke has died at 79.
According to a post on his official Facebook page a few hours ago and signed by Anni Bonnke, his family said he was a loving husband, father and grandfather.
“It is with sorrow that the Bonnke Family would like to announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke.
” He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on December 7, 2019. For the past 60 years, he has preached the glorious Gospel of Jesus throughout the entire world.
” We want to thank you on behalf of him and our family, for your kind love and unwavering support, which enabled him to preach the matchless message of salvation to countless people”.
Earlier in November, the founder of Christ for All Nations called on other believers to pray for him after a surgery.
The CFAN founder had a surgery done on his right femur and according to him, he needs to learn how to walk again.
He wrote: “My dearest prayer partners,” It is my desire to share with you my present situation. I definitely need your prayers, as Paul the Apostle needed it from the early churches for his personal needs.
“Right now, I am in the hospital and have undergone a right femur bone surgery. All has gone well so far, but now I have to add a few weeks of learning to walk again.
” My spirit is rejoicing, especially when I think of you. I have been able to pray for you and your very many needs and am asking you to pray for me now. I will read every reply and thank you in anticipation and in the Name of Jesus”
