Business blossoms in Tamale as Crusade comes to town




The arrival of the lead speaker of this year’s Reinhard Bonnke Gospel crusade, Evangelist Daniel Kolenda in Tamale has created a suitable atmosphere for business men and women in the Tamale metropolis. Evangelist Kolenda arrived in Tamale on Wednesday ahead of the four-day crusade which started yesterday.

Business men and women in the metropolis took advantage of the crusade by displaying their goods at the Tamale sports stadium yesterday evening with the belief that business will be good for them for the entire duration of the program.

After interacting with them, many of the traders expressed confidence that they would make good money at the end of the crusade.

Thousands of people from all walks of life gathered at the Tamale sports stadium (crusade grounds) to receive their miracles.  Others were there to catch a glimpse of the Evangelist and his team, who came all the way from the United States of America to Tamale just to preach the gospel to the good people of Tamale.

Some people, who shared their expectations with Zaa news, stated that they were sure of receiving their blessings after the four-day crusade. This is the first time in 30 years that the Bonnke gospel crusade is being held in Tamale.

It is with high expectation and hope that after the crusade the people of the northern region as well as the entire country would receive their salvation, healing, spiritual peace and progress.

The crusade is being organized by Christ for all Nations, in collaboration with all local churches in the Tamale metropolis. Meanwhile about 600,000 people are expected to attend the crusade, which will end on Sunday 29th January 2017.
