REPORT FROM ETERNAL LIFE GOSPEL
CRUSADE, KABONG, JOS, PLATEAU STATE, NIGERIA
great time we had at Kabong! Eternal Life Gospel Crusade
Kabong is one Crusade that has left us wondering at what the
Lord could do to a land desperately in need of Him. Kabong
which is located in the city of Jos, the Capital of Plateau
State, Nigeria is known for a lifestyle of immorality and
drunkenness majorly, besides all kinds of atrocities. And it
appears the women in the land dominated the drinking of
alcohol. It is very clear that this land is deeply in search
of satisfaction – everything they do tell of their quest for
something real. But thanks be to God for sending us to this
precious people of Kabong. They too, are the reason for the
redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
days to the Crusade, which held from 28th - 30th November
2010, the Lord gave us a word for Kabong
which is found in Isaiah 25:7
“And He will destroy on this mountain The
surface of the covering cast over all people, And the veil
that is spread over all nations.” (NKJV). And we trust that was
actually what the Lord did because we waged a good warfare
with His Word.
first day of the Crusade, Bro David preached on the topic:
‘Turn and Live!’ taking his text from Ezekiel 18:31; 33:11.
And on the second day he preached on ‘the power of Decision’
taking his text from Joshua 24:15,16 and Deut.30:15,19. The
Word was received in earnest. There was simply a Word for
everyone – both the saved and the unsaved.
strategy adopted for Kabong was strongly inspired by the
Holy Spirit. Apart from the Crusade services, through copies
of our quarterly bulletin (Life Digest), Tracts, Devotionals
and small Bibles, we were able to penetrate the community
beyond the Crusade venue. During the 2 day Crusade services,
52 souls made Jesus Christ the Lord of their lives. This is
one Crusade which the devil tried all he could to stop but
he had the shock of his life as the Holy Spirit helped us to
stay focused on the picture He showed us until it became a
reality. Glory to God! We never considered ourselves just
speaking to the audience at the Crusade ground. The
preaching was done at the quietest moment of the community
and so we had the opportunity to reach people who where
outside the venue.
Convert service on Sunday held at 1pm was a thrill as the
souls came to receive basic foundational teaching for a good
and healthy Christian life. They received the Word with joy
and also received the Holy Spirit for empowered Christian
living. This is what Eternal Life Gospel Crusade is all
about. During the New Converts’ Service, we received some
people who hadn’t made the decision for Jesus. They left the
service saved! A dear brother from one of the local Churches
offered to have a teaching class with the converts every
Sunday and the converts accepted the offer with excitement.
The harvest is conserved. Jesus is glorified!
whole inversion culminated with the distribution of
‘Urgency!’ Tract (our ministry Tract that inspires the
saints to passionate evangelism) to all the Churches in the
community to spark up a holy flame for soul winning. We know
that Kabong will never remain the same again!
pray for the people of Kabong. Pray for the new converts
that they would abide in Christ. Also Pray that the fire
that has been lit there will continue to burn so that many
would be stirred to come to Christ for their salvation.
Sorry, we couldn’t display the pictures from the Crusade
because of poor picture quality.
