Following Reinhard Bonnke’s death in December , so many around our world are still celebrating the evangelist, best known for his decades of preaching in Africa, a ministry in which he saw more than 79 million saved.
A memorial service was held on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at Faith Assembly of God in Orlando, Florida. This service will be retransmitted on Revelation TV today (Tuesday 7th January) at 11.30am (UK) and 5pm (UK). It will also be shown on Thursday 16th January at 10pm. You can also watch it here.
Authoring 40 books, Bonnke was memorialized by his ministry with this quote: “Let my mortal lips preach the eternal gospel, and my mortal hands build your eternal kingdom – to the glory of the father.”
At one of the largest meetings in Lagos, Nigeria, 1.6 million attendees heard him preach in Nov. 2000. He had a dream that God was covering Africa with the blood of Christ before his ministry exploded, holding massive meetings with a platform and speakers outdoors.
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who is Muslim, paid tribute to the evangelist, calling his death a “great loss to Nigeria, Africa, and entire world” because his crusades “strongly accentuated the message of Jesus Christ and his vision and zeal for the salvation of souls clearly helped the world in understanding the power of love and kindness as universal language.”
