Made a Liberian Chief Here in Monrovia

It is official; I am a Liberian Chief...in a spiritual sense! That is what a group of Liberian pastors said as they adorned me with an official Liberian Chief outfit this morning at an impromptu church ceremony attended by about fifty Liberian pastors here in Monrovia.


About 10,000 people including Liberian President
and Vice President attended the First night of Liberia
for Jesus Festival on Friday night.

The international Committee for the End-Time Revival in Liberia are a group of evangelical and Pentecostal Churches both in Liberia and in the United States that have extended an invitation to SWIM ministries to partner with them in a nationwide evangelism, reconciliation and healing Festival in 2012 touching several cities across Liberia.

During the civil war, the group was able to mobilize a nation-wide campaign called Liberia for Jesus that saw prayer rallies held across several cities as well as the gospel proclaimed simultaneously across all the provinces of Liberia in 2002 as they called for the end to the civil war at that time.

team prayer time
As Liberia rebuilds from the ruins, there is the need for reconciliation and healing from the scars and wounds that are still fresh. They feel that God directed them to Shine in the World International Ministries as the right partner organization with the churches in Liberia for this major campaign scheduled for the Fall of 2012.

On learning that I was here travelling with Franklin Graham for the All Liberia Life Festival, the pastors convened an impromptu reception gathering this morning and invited me to the occasion. May the Lord honor their hearts that are full of passion and joy in Jesus Christ.

On a different note, Franklins' festival is going very well. Yesterday we had about 10,000 people that attended the opening Crusade. 2700 people made decisions for Jesus Christ (my unofficial estimates).

This morning I estimated more than 25,000 children at the Children Fest with Franklin's Associate Evangelist R.V. Brown. Several thousands of kids responded to the invitation. You can watch my webcast segment on Tuesday March 29th at www.billygraham.org. God is moving!

Adiedo Embraces Hope

World Evangelist Sammy Wanyonyi preaching in Adiedo, Kenya Orphaned by HIV/AIDS, she rarely speaks, not even to her visiting school sponsor Pam Craig who traveled as part of our team to Adiedo from Spokane Washington.  But last Saturday afternoon in the closing moments of the evangelistic festival, Everline walked over to Pam and asked if she could be introduced to the preacher (me).   For once, she had a smile on her face.  The eleven year-old had just asked Jesus Christ into her heart as Lord and Savior.   Several hundreds of people respond to the invitation to follow Christ on day two of Adiedo Festival All across the soccer-field were stories like Everline's.  I cannot forget a ten year-old young man named Ochieng.  On Friday night, he waited backstage patiently for me to leave the stage and then boldly walked up to me extending his hand to greet me.  Although his clothes were torn here and there, I could tell that he had worn his Sunday best to the meeting. 

My Body Fails Me - #SHINEGlobalMissionChallenge- #MuhangaRwanda2014

Yes, I want to tell you all about what God is doing here in Muhanga but my body fails me.  I want to tell you how He is moving through our Kinderroots team where already several thousands of children have been ministered to over the last two days on hills, plains and valleys surrounding Muhanga.  Where hundreds have already given their lives to Christ. I want to tell you how God is moving through our Prisoners of Hope outreach program to where three thousand prisoners were reached with the love of Christ earlier this afternoon with hundreds of them giving their lives to Christ. Where we delivered supplies worth several thousands of dollars to the delight of the prison officials following a devastating fire at the facility that gutted much of what they had beyond salvaging. How God worked to open doors so our team could go in and bring the Good News of Christ. How doors to another prison with even more inmates are wide open for the gospel tomorrow morning. I want to tell you of s

Yes I am back to Blogging

I've been gone from blogging for several years now.  I am glad to be back.  I am looking forward to keep this blog alive and well.  So much has happened since my last blog.  In addition to the global work of evangelism, we launched a new work here in the Twin Cities.  The initiative is called Merge. More on why the name Merge later. Yes, we have been busy as ever sharing the Good News with thousands around the world. But more so, in the last two years God has shown us that the Nations are also right here in our own backyard.  Over one million first and second generation from over one hundred nations in the Twin Cities alone. Our cities are more and more global. The people speak multiple religious languages.  They carry multiple national identities.  They fall in different social and cultural groups. With such diversity of peoples at our door step we must ask the question: Is the "Great Commission" still Great? Is Jesus' command given a couple millennia ago to &
