Africa in Revival - August

Burkina Faso

Recently, the church held its first crusade in a heavily Islamic neighborhood. The first night there were over 300 in attendance. People were reserved and apprehensive. The second night there were over 500 in attendance. The atmosphere and faith were different, and the crowd literally ran to the altar. Twenty-five received the Holy Spirit. The following Sunday, the church had doubled in attendance and ten were baptized in Jesus' name.

At five regional conferences, there was a seminar attendance of 992 and crusade attendance of over 2,000. During the services ninety-two received the Holy Spirit, seventy were baptized in Jesus' name, thirty-two were healed, and many were delivered from demonic depression.

At one place, nineteen received the Holy Spirit on one Sunday.

At a prayer meeting in one region, there were many miracles and several Islamic people received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
