Reverend Reeinhard Bonnke, renowned global evangelist of repute will storm the shores of Nigeria for a five-day goodbye crusade that will unleashed the power of God on Nigeria and liberate it from its very present predicaments, which is eating deep into its socio-economic and spiritual potentials.

The crusadesaid to be a mission to making Nigeria and Africa a better place, its organisers, Christ for All Nation (CfaN), said aims to reach out to more than 30 million Nigerians with the gospel with at least 10 million people attending the crusade every day and submitting to the majesty of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Speaking at world press conference in Lagos, the Chairman Central Working Committee for Reinhard Bonnke’s Farewell Crusade 2017, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola said participants from the neighbouring countries like Ghana, Cameroun, Togo, Benin, Mali, amongst others are expected to attend the crusade which is billed to hold from Wednesday, November 8th to Sunday, November 12th at Besides Sparkling Estate, Isheri, Lagos from 4.30 pm daily.

The Farewell Crusade, Bamgbola said will be complemented by a major side-line event tagged, “Passing the Burning Torch” conference where hundreds of thousands of willing ministers of God in Africa are expected to catch the Bonnke’s fire for greater exploits, adding, “Those who are conversant with the Holy Bible know that prophet Elisha did greater exploits for God after he got a double portion of prophet Elijah’s anointing by prayerfully taking the Burning Torch from Elijah.”

He explained further that Bonnke’s choice to stage a comeback to Nigeria crusade in the final lap of his large-sale global evangelism outreach is God-ordained and will therefore be explosive, adding that, “The last time he visited this country was eight years ago and many today could attest to the glorious work that God Almighty used him to do in the lives of Nigerians. This time around Evangelist Bonnke led by God says God there is healing for Nigeria, a country currently plagued by socio-economic corruption and spiritual pollution. He had said many times in the past that this country has great potentials but was being held down by demonic forces militating against it. The result is what we see as social voices that have held down economic growth, inflation has remained high at double digit, just as unemployment rate ensures that more than 29 million employable youths remain jobless.”

The CfaN African Director, John Darku, said adequate plans have been made for security, control of traffic and general welfare of every one who will be in attendance. Darku who described Bonnke’s coming this time as a sentimental journey for a man who may never see African again, added, “Now in his old age, our Lord has asked him to gather his frail bones and body to come and minster to brethren in Africa for the last time! “With this final crusade, Evangelist Bonnke will be passing the torch of apostolic evangelism to brethren in Africa, starting from Lagos in Nigeria . For Evangelist Bonnke, the work in Africa will be over. But from us in Africa, the work has just begun”, Darku added.
