THE much-awaited spir­i­tual and heal­ing cru­sade dubbed Heal­ing Je­sus Cam­paign led by Ghana­ian preacher, Evan­ge­list Dag Heward Mil­lis, kicks off in Bu­l­awayo tonight at White City Sta­dium with thou­sands ex­pected to at­tend the mega Chris­tian event.

The event which has been highly pub­li­cised has been ex­tended to three nights from two.

Evan­ge­list Heward Mills has been in the coun­try since last week and held his first Heal­ing Je­sus Cam­paign in Kadoma which was well at­tended.

Chair­per­son of the lo­cal or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, Apos­tle Collin Ny­athi, of Har­vest House In­ter­na­tional church said the cam­paign was in­ter­de­nom­i­na­tional.

The cru­sade will start tonight and end on Thurs­day.

“We are ex­pect­ing a large crowd. It’s now three days not two days, 5:30PM ev­ery day from Tues­day to Thurs­day. On Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day we will also have a lead­ers’ con­fer­ence led by Bishop Heward Mills from 8:30 to 1PM at the Zimbabwe In­ter­na­tional Trade Fair where the bishop will be teach­ing about lead­er­ship to sec­u­lar lead­ers and spir­i­tual lead­ers,” said Apos­tle Ny­athi.

Apos­tle Ny­athi urged Bu­l­awayo res­i­dents to throng the venue for heal­ing and sal­va­tion.

“We en­cour­age peo­ple to come in their num­bers be­cause I have been in Kadoma and I saw peo­ple be­ing healed. We en­cour­age those that are suf­fer­ing from dis­eases to come and be part of the cru­sade,” he said.

Evan­ge­list Heward Mills is ex­pected to meet Bu­l­awayo Mayor Coun­cil­lor Martin Moyo and Min­is­ter of State, Cde Eu­nice Nomthandazo Moyo be­fore a press brief­ing at the Large City Hall to­day.

A 5 000 strong choir made up of choresters from var­i­ous de­nom­i­na­tions will lead the praise and wor­ship ses­sions, 4 000 coun­sel­lors and 4 000 ush­ers from dif­fer­ent de­nom­i­na­tions will be part of the mega cru­sade.

Apos­tle Ny­athi said there would be free trans­port to ferry peo­ple to and from White City Sta­dium ev­ery day at var­i­ous pick up points from the city cen­tre, eastern and western sub­urbs.

He said an ar­range­ment had also been made with the Bu­l­awayo Public Trans­porters As­so­ci­a­tion (BUPTA) to pick up peo­ple to and from White City Sta­dium.

Apos­tle Ny­athi said the trans­porta­tion of peo­ple will start at 2PM from the sub­urbs to the sta­dium and ends at 6PM.

The Heal­ing Je­sus Cam­paign has been held in over 90 coun­tries. A to­tal of 14 towns and cities in Zimbabwe will host the cru­sades.

From Bu­l­awayo, Evan­ge­list Heward Mills will head to Vic­to­ria Falls on Novem­ber 18 and 19 be­fore pro­ceed­ing to Beit­bridge on Novem­ber 21 and 22.

Evan­ge­list Heward Mills has held 132 evan­ge­lis­tic cru­sades since 2004 where 10 429 478 have turned to Christ, ac­cord­ing to in­for­ma­tion on his web­site.

He says his ob­jec­tive is to preach the gospel to 100 mil­lion un­der­priv­i­leged peo­ple in the world.
