Thou­sands at Vic Falls Heal­ing Je­sus Cam­paign

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Leonard Ncube

THE on­go­ing Heal­ing Je­sus Cam­paign cru­sades con­tinue to at­tract bumper crowds with thou­sands turn­ing up for the oc­ca­sion in Vic­to­ria Falls.

The event co­in­cided with the first rains in the re­sort town.

Chino­timba Sta­dium was fully packed on Fri­day when the cru­sade started while on Satur­day some peo­ple braved the rains to wit­ness mir­a­cles in mud and wet weather.

The cru­sade led by Ghana­ian Evan­ge­list Dag He­ward Mills drew Chris­tians from dif­fer­ent de­nom­i­na­tions in the re­sort town, Hwange and sur­round­ing ar­eas such as Monde, Sizinda, Jam­bezi and Chisuma.

When the cru­sade ended af­ter 11PM on Satur­day, park­ing space was hard to get as buses brought more peo­ple from the sub­urbs who had stayed away ear­lier be­cause of the rains.

The evan­ge­list said his mis­sion was to draw Zim­bab­weans closer to God as he warned against un­Godly world lead­ers and false prophets.

“Are you en­joy­ing the be­gin­ning of the rains? Ev­ery­where we go it rains. This is a sign of bless­ings show­er­ing the ci­ties,” he said.

“I want to thank the Zim­babwe Govern­ment, po­lice and other churches for the sup­port for this cam­paign. Any­one who helps the church is blessed while those who fight the church will be cursed.

He added: “I have been sent to invite you to bow to God and warn you about world lead­ers who don’t fear God”.

Evan­ge­list Mills named some coun­tries in Europe and some lead­ers who he said never thanked God when they were elected into of­fice.

Preach­ing and teach­ing at the two day cru­sade fo­cused largely on lead­er­ship, loy­alty and the need to thank God for any­thing as well as how to es­cape the di­men­sion of hell.

Vic­to­ria Falls Mayor Coun­cil­lor Si­fiso Mpofu who wel­comed the cru­saders said: “Vic­to­ria Falls will never be the same again af­ter re­ceiv­ing bless­ings.”

Pas­tor Bar­bara Murasir­anwa, on be­half of Union for the De­vel­op­ment of Apos­tolic Churches in Zim­babwe (Uda­ciza), said: “We have been taught to work to­gether as churches in the same man­ner buf­faloes gather as a crowd.”

The mir­a­cle night saw some peo­ple giv­ing tes­ti­monies that they have been healed from dif­fer­ent ail­ments.

Mrs Casey Mpofu (64) from Chino­timba said she re­gained her sight af­ter be­ing blind for five years while Mrs Jessy Maphosa (80) said she lost sight in 2011 and re­gained it on Satur­day.

From Vic­to­ria Falls the en­tourage heads for Beit­bridge be­fore go­ing to Gwanda, Bin­dura, Harare, Mutare, Maron­dera, Zvisha­vane and Masvingo in that or­der.— @ ncubeleon.
