There Is Electricity in the Air!


Local pastors and churches were overjoyed: they received 384,110 decision cards for follow-up, signed by people who had turned to Jesus for salvation during the CfaN Campaign.

Lusaka, Zambia

There Is Electricity in the Air! O

ver 80,000 people were in attendance at the first meeting of our Great Gospel Campaign in Lusaka/Zambia. Two days later, more than three times that many gathered. Expectancy was high from the beginning and Daniel wrote: “It seems as though the air is charged with electricity!” Several local pastors stated repeatedly how extraordinary the church participation was. One top bishop said that in the past they struggled just to get a couple hundred churches to work together. But for this Campaign, more than 1,000 churches were participating. That is a miracle in itself, and a testimony to the credibility and trust CfaN has in Africa. We pray that one of the lasting impacts of this Campaign would be ongoing church unity. On the second night, Daniel preached on the Blood of Jesus

and broke the power of witchcraft curses. He encouraged people to bring all of their idols, fetishes, charms, amulets or “juju” – especially talismans given to them by witchdoctors – to be burned that night. That is exactly what happened in Acts 19. As Daniel preached, a witchdoctor came forward with a big white bag full of paraphernalia and placed it in the drums to be burned. It caused quite a stir in the crowd. But that is the kind of interruption we welcome! On Sunday night, the last meeting, the crowd grew to 250,000 and many miracles took place. In addition to the hundreds of thousands who heard the Gospel on the Campaign field, Radio Christian Voice broadcast the meetings live all across the country. Testimonies of changed lives have flooded in from all over Zambia.

The National Stadium could not seat more than 60,000 people – an area too small for our Gospel Campaign. So we held the event in the stadium parking lot.

As we prayed, a mad man who sat on the ground eating dirt suddenly came to his right mind. When he came on the platform, he was covered in dust from head to toe. But he declared the wonders of God with such enthusiasm, one pastor on the platform said, “He’s preaching!” The people were beside themselves with joy! It was like something right out of the New Testament.

The Lord healed a woman who was deaf for five years. Our translator knew her personally, and was able to confirm her testimony.

This woman was unable to walk, so people had to carry her to the Campaign meeting. But she testified that, after receiving prayer, she could walk perfectly. A 7-year-old little girl who had never heard or spoken was healed on the first night. Daniel counted out loud for her, and she repeated after him. It was a precious moment.

For two years this woman sat in a wheelchair, unable to walk. But Jesus Christ healed her on the third day in Lusaka.

A woman totally deaf in her right ear was completely healed.

platform and preached in the pouring rain, prayed for the sick and blessed those present. Later he wrote: “As I sit in my room after tonight’s service here in Mbarara, Uganda, completely soaked to the bone, the thing most pronounced in my heart is what an amazing honor it is to minister to these precious people.”

The region has a dry, tropical climate. It frequently sustains long periods of drought, including the last few months. Farmers have suffered as they waited for the rainy season to return. When the CfaN team arrived in the city, people flooded the streets shouting and waving. We moved like a parade through town for more than an hour. There were people playing trumpets, beating drums and honking the horns of their cars and motorcycles in a joyful rhythm. But the Campaign started with a big disappointment for the CfaN team:

the first meeting of our daytime Fire Conference was rained out by a cold, unrelenting, torrential downpour. The local Christians, however, were very encouraged. For them the rain was a sign that the blessings of God would rain down on Mbarara as the CfaN Great Gospel Campaign began. That night, at the first Gospel meeting, thousands responded to the message of salvation, and wonderful miracles occurred. Still, the weather turned out to be an ongoing challenge for our team. On the second night, there was another torrential downpour. But nobody left. The people just stood through the thunderstorm and cold rain, praying, singing and worshipping God. When Daniel realized that the rain would not stop, he went to the

On the third night, it started to rain again. Daniel did not want to lose another meeting like the first day’s Fire Conference, so he prayed fervently against the rain. Then he began to preach, knowing he might only have a few minutes. But amazingly, the rain turned to a sprinkle, and then completely

stopped! A few minutes later, the skies were clear and the sun was shining. They finished the whole service without interruption. On the last night of the Gospel Campaign, the First Lady of Uganda opened the final meeting by professing her faith in Jesus Christ and encouraging the thousands in attendance to surrender their lives to

Him. It was a very special moment. Several pastors told Peter van den Berg that their churches had been overflowing that morning with new converts who had received Christ during the week! That is exactly what we are after. We want to see the new believers find a spiritual home and become disciples of Jesus, following in His footsteps.

joy! She was a well-known witch doctor in Mbarara. She testified that tonight she surrendered her life to Jesus Christ, receiving Him as her personal Savior! She told the people that she would never practice “Ju-ju” again! Everybody was overjoyed, and began to dance, rejoice and sing.


Africa is being saved! Up to this point in our Campaign ministry, we have printed and given out well over 98 million of our “Now that You are Saved” booklets in over 60 languages (to be exact: 98,363,360 copies). It is a non-stop undertaking. Our follow-up system is simple and very effective. However, the demand for our materials has increased dramatically and become a tremendous challenge. The literature budget is huge. But I believe it is not too much if we all pull together. It would be a wonderful privilege if you could stand with us for these upcoming Great Gospel Campaigns with your donations.
