NDOLA, ZAMBIA CRUSADE - REPORT
29th May 2002
Dearest Evangelist Jim Eilers,
It is a joy for me to write you this letter and share many wonderful
things that happened during and after your international city
miracle crusade in Ndola from 15th – 19th May 2002. This was a very
dynamic crusade in the history of Ndola and Zambia.
I believe you are a man sent by God to our nation to bring the message of
hope, deliverance and to save many thousands into the kingdom of God.
Sowing the seeds of the gospel is resulting into a great harvest of souls.
This calls for wise people like you.
To start with I have never seen a crusade in our nation, which starts with
a bang on the first night of the crusade. To see cripples walk on the
first day made the faith of many thousands of people to rise. The whole
city was shaken. There was joy coupled with the fear of the Lord. People
saw with their own eyes the power of God at work like the bible days.
On the first night of the crusade there was a crowd of 60 000 people and
40 000 gave their lives to Jesus. On the second night there were 75 000
people and 50 000 received Jesus as their Lord and savior. The third night
of the crusade attracted 80 000 people with 65 000 salvations. The last
of the crusade were extraordinary. We have never had gatherings like this
before. Crowds of 90 000 and 100 000 for Saturday and Sunday respectively
are a miracle. I was even reminded of big crowds that used to follow Jesus
when He was here on earth as a human being for the wonderful miracles He
performing. The last 2 nights had 120 000 salvations altogether. For five
nights there was an attendance of 390 000 people with the total salvations
of 270 000. Ndola will never and is never the same. The memories are still
fresh and greater revival is at work in the local churches.
Evangelist Jim Eilers, a number of crusades we have seen here in Zambia by
other Evangelists are mostly characterized with the word only with very
few miracles. There has never been a crusade with such a huge number of
miracles like your crusade in Ndola. We just had to stop people from
coming to the stage to testify because of time. Let me just mention a few
of the miracles: A woman who was crippled for 20 years and the doctors
told her that her knee caps were rotten and will never walk in her life
time was touched by the power of God and she walked without any support.
She threw way the clutches (sticks) and walked freely; a man was crippled
for ten years and the doctors said he will never walk and threatened to
cut his right foot, was healed when you prayed. He threw away the clutches
and walked freely. A woman with very big tumors in the uterus with
protruding fibroids was healed instantly. The tumors and fibroids
disappeared when you prayed. She had this problem for over twenty years; a
baby which could not seat for one year 7 months was able to sit on the
platform after prayer; a blind man was brought to the crusade by the wife
and God restored his sight when you prayed a prayer of faith; another
young boy who was blind was brought by his brother and was healed. His
sight was restored; a man with swollen private parts was healed instantly
and the swollen parts went back to normal; many deaf people received their
healing; People brought on stretchers went back home freely; T.B. patients
were healed; another woman with feet problems for over five years which
made her to be crippled was healed and for the first time she was able to
wear shoes; curses upon people’s lives were broken and they were set free.
What a crusade, what an explosion. Heaven was populated, hell plundered,
to God be all the glory.
Brother Jim, there has never been a crusade in the city of Ndola highly
attended like yours. The buses and trucks that were put in place to
transport people to the crusade grounds and back to their compounds was
something very unique. This has never happened in our nation before. You
really have a passion for souls. God bless you mightily. On the first
night of the crusade we had hired 15 buses, which made a total of 24 round
trips to the crusade grounds and back. On the second night there were 60
round trips, the forth night had 94 round trips and on the last night of
the crusade the buses and trucks made 115 round trips. This was a very
expensive venture, which helped thousands and thousands of people to come
to the crusade and accept Jesus as their Lord and savior. Ndola is a very
big city. Most of the Evangelists who come to Ndola just touch a small
segment of Ndola. Your crusade affected the whole city. To God be all the
The distribution of 75 000 books (The Gospel of John) was another booster
for the crusade. Although these books could not go round for everybody,
those with Bibles had to give chance to those without to get a copy each.
The demand was very high with an attendance of over 300 000 people. A
of converts are now reading the gospel of John in their homes. Praise the
Lord. Brother Jim, every crusade I have had with you here in Zambia,
people say it is always the best. I believe this is because you are a man
who believes in excellence.
Brother Jim, while in Ndola during your crusade, I had four Church Elders
come up to me to share something with me so that I can tell you. They said
in 1999 when they were praying at their church, God gave them a word of
prophecy that there will come an Evangelist from America to Zambia who
impact the whole nation with the gospel with many signs and wonders
following to bring revival to the whole nation of zambia. In 2000, there
came an Evangelist to Ndola by the name of Blants. They asked the Lord
whether he was the man but God said I also use Evangelist Blants but he is
not the one I promised. Now on the second day of the crusade around 10:00
hrs during the believers conference (17th May 2002) God spoke to the same
Church Elders that Evangelist Jim Eilers is the man I promised to you in
1999. they told me to tell you for your encouragement.
There is another big miracle crusade in the city of Ndola as a result of
your miracle crusade. Last year during the run up to Presidential and
Parliamentary Elections the Pastors of Ndola were split up and many
divisions in the body of Christ came up. They were split into three groups
because each group had a Presidential Candidate they were supporting. This
cost the Pastors fellowship a lot. Pastors who were meeting with an
attendance of over 200 were reduced to 40-50 Pastors. Even after the
elections, they could not come together. When these Pastors heard about
your coming to Ndola, they started coming together. Those 150 Pastors you
met on 15th May 2002 in the morning was a miracle. You were also led by
the Holy Spirit to have Holy Communion with them. All the barriers of
broken. Right now there is greater unity amongst the Pastors of Ndola.
They are meeting in large numbers up to now. To God be all the glory.
Miracles have continued happening even after you left. I am receiving an
average of 10 calls everyday, people who are testifying about many
healings and breakthroughs. The Pastors of Ndola say they have never seen
an Evangelist like you who presents the gospel in a very simple way with
many signs and wonders following. Indeed the power of God is in the
simplicity of the gospel.
Brother Jim, I am happy to mention that my faith has really grown as a
result of being connected to your Ministry. I am experiencing the overflow
of God’s power and blessings from the Ministry. My church is growing and
people are being added to the church on a weekly basis. I will continue to
update with more testimonies as they come in. otherwise your crusade is
still the talk of the day in the Copperbelt region. Thank you for helping
