German-based evangelist Reinhard Bonnke is set to conduct a series of crusades at Njamba Freedom Park from November 5 to 8 2015.
Nation on Sunday has learnt that Bonnke—who heads Christ for All Nations (CFAN) ministries—is visiting Malawi for the third time and is expected to convert and redeem one million souls.
Chairperson of the Reinhard Bonnke Crusade organising committee Bishop Geoffrey Matoga disclosed last Friday that CFAN is organising these crusades in conjunction with the Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM).
But Matoga said CFAN is financing every cost attached to Bonnke’s visit to Malawi, which means no one will be asked to finance, let alone contribute towards his stay in Malawi.
Matoga explained: “This is purely a spiritual gathering and we invite everyone to attend. We also expect to pray for reconciliation among our political leaders for the acceleration of social and economic development in this country.”
Matoga expressed hope that leaders of both the ruling and opposition parties will find time to ‘meet the man of God’.
He said the organising committee is currently working on booking an appointment to enable Bonnke meet President Peter Mutharika.
Evangelist Elton Kananji of Che Musa’s Empowered Christian Assembly (ECA) of the Malawi Assemblies of God Church said the crusade will conduct healing, prophecy, praise and worship sessions, among others.
Kananji, who is a member of the organising committee, emphasised that CFAN and EAM’s budget does not cater for the needs of worshippers travelling from outside Blantyre and other countries such as Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique.
“We, therefore, urge those coming to these crusades to prepare their own costs for accommodation and meals,” he said.
EAM deputy general secretary, Reverend Grey Mwalabu, stated that preparations for the third coming of Bonnke are at advanced stage.
Mwalabu challenged people who are suffering from various diseases or are going through financial difficulties to come and receive their miracles ‘at no price’.
Bonnke first visited in Malawi in 1986. He again visited the country in 1997 when he conducted a crusade at a place that is currently housing Chichiri Shopping Mall.
