DAMONGO CRUSADE, GHANA 2010
Last night saw the end of this fantastic crusade in Damongo with Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills and the response of the people was simply fantastic. This was the last night of this crusade and tomorrow we will begin our return home to Accra.
We are overwhelmed at the things that we have seen and the souls that have been won here in Damongo. We want to say thank you again for sending us here, thank you for your prayers and financial support. The Evangelist often says that the “Gospel is only Good news if it gets there in time” and because of you this is true for Damongo. Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills and the Healing Jesus Crusade Team
Dear Healing Jesus Partner,
Day 4: Friday, 25 June 2010
A woman who had suffered from fibroids for 6 years and 7 months today was miraculously healed. For years she had suffered with a fibroid so big that it filled her dress resembling someone who was 5 months pregnant. She found it embarrassing leaving the house as many would ask about her pregnancy. Today to the glory of God she testifies that as the Evangelist prayed mentioning the healing of stomach diseases she fell under the power of the Holy Spirit and when she got up she could no longer feel the fibroid, her stomach was flat.
At the end of the night the Evangelist prayed for Damongo blessing the land and the people. He prayed that Christianity would dominate the northern parts of Ghana and that the work that God has begun in Damongo would be completed.

Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills and the Healing Jesus Crusade team
Dear Healing Jesus Partners,
The Evangelist preached powerfully from many of his books, encouraging the leaders of Damongo to be people who read as reading gives us the opportunity to improve our lives here on Earth; for when we get to Heaven we will be judged on what we knew and what we did with what we knew. Blessing all in attendance with several copies of his books this meeting has equipped the leaders of Damongo with the materials necessary to become the leaders that God wants them to be.
Dear Healing Jesus Partners,

The renowned Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills was warmly received by the pastors and chiefs of Ijero, Ekiti State, Nigeria. He made known that he was believing God for 2 things from the Ijero crusade: First, that miracles would already begin to take place, with the arrival of the Healing Jesus Crusade team and secondly that many, many souls would be saved.
This is exactly what happened during the evening crusades. There was great excitement and expectation in the air as people from Ijero and beyond gathered to hear the word of God each night. With great passion and his usual simple down to earth presentation, Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills preached about "Greater Love", emphasising that God's love is different from the love of any man.
So many souls were touched by this moving, much needed word of God and they gave their lives to Jesus Christ. And it did not end there. Once again, God demonstrated his power through the great Healing Evangelist as he ministered under the Anointing and there was a record of so many marvellous miracles! The lame walked, the deaf heard, the blind saw and indeed, there were several Bible-type miracles and testimonies. Just to mention a few....
1. A young man had been in a fatal accident and as a result of injury ended up with a limp. After the prayer for the sick he decided to take a few steps in faith only to suddenly realise the limp was no longer there!
2. A man suffering from a stroke with consequent paralysis on the left side experienced the touch of God. He could previously not lift his hand but after the prayer for the sick, he was able to lift his once paralyzed arm, up and down!
3. An elderly man, totally blind, upon instruction from the Evangelist, decided to lay his hands on his eyes during the prayer. As he believed God to heal him of blindness, he took his hands off his eyes after the prayer of faith, turned to look at his wife and discovered to his amazement and joy, that he could see.
4. A woman, totally paralyzed for over 3 months was carried to the crusade by her husband. Healed by the power of God during the crusade, she ran and rolled all over the stage, out of excitement!
5.An elderly man (now 60 years old) got into a fight when he was 15 years old and was slapped by someone. He lost his hearing in both ears after that slap. For several decades, he had lived as a deaf man. Suddenly after the prayer for the sick, his ears were opened and he could hear. Very excited, delivered from a bondage of many years, he testified of the goodness of God. By the end of the crusade, there were over hundred people still waiting, in a queue, to give testimonies of healing, miracles, deliverance from captivity and many more, but the Evangelist could not take them all.
The religious and civil leadership, as well as the people of Ijero, Ekiti, indeed demonstrated a lot of appreciation and respect for the great ministry of Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills. The King of Ijero for example, attended the crusade night after night, together with his entire household and other sub-kings. He eagerly received the messages and was seen to have taken down some notes during the preaching. Never had the crusade team ever seen such a rare sight.
To God be all the glory.
IKERE CRUSADE, NIGERIA 2010
When Healing Jesus Crusade stopped in Ikere, Nigeria, on 7th September, little did the team know that it would rain on the very first night of the crusade. Not discouraged by the down pour, over 200,000 people turned up from Ikere and beyond, with 4000 people getting saved by the end of that night.
Soaking wet but undeterred, Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills ministered
to the people who were hungry and hopeful as well as eager to hear the word of God. In the words of the healing Evangelist, the crusade was not like any he had experienced. Jesus was there to save, to heal and to deliver!
Prior to the first night, the crusade team were given a rousing welcome by the people of Ikere who lined the streets to greet the Healing Evangelist. The team met the King of Ikere and also visited the Governor of Ekiti’s office where Evangelist Dag interacted with the cabinet and prayed for the Ekiti State and for Nigeria.
As early as 7.30 on the second day about 5000 eager and expectant pastors, ministers and church leaders gathered to be taught by the Evangelist at the ‘Work of the Ministry’ pastors conference. From his two books ‘Loyalty and Disloyalty’ and ‘The Art of Leadership’ he shared vital ministry nuggets and as in often times desiring to bless, Evangelist Dag gave away some of the copies of his books free of charge.
The highlight of the second night of the crusade was when a little boy with undescended testes was instantly healed during prayer.
There was a sense of expectancy in the air on the third day even though the rains persisted. Over a quarter of a million people poured onto the crusade grounds shielded by umbrellas to hear Evangelist Dag preach and heal. The miracles that followed his message of ‘Rise and be healed’ were profound and also demonstrated God’s love for his people on that night. Among many other miracles, a little boy and an elderly man were both healed of blindness while a woman who had bled continuously for a month testified of instant healing! Pains of all sorts disappeared as Evangelist Dag ministered.
Events took a surprising turn on the fourth night after he met the pastors for one last time in the day. The atmosphere at the crusade grounds was charged with the presence of God and the faith of an expectant crowd, however it began to rain suddenly. But having come armed with umbrellas and even using chairs to prevent being drenched, the people received from Evangelist Dag. He ministered from his heart on ‘You deserve a miracle’ though he was soaking wet. Remarkably, the crowd stayed until the end when the final prayer was said.
There were clear and blue skies and a rainbow on the fifth and final day of the crusade! Evangelist Dag preached on deliverance from captivity and the night was also marked with deliverance from all sorts of demonic oppression and a message of salvation for all. The people of Ikere gave a gift of gas in support of the next healing Jesus Crusade to be held in Ijero, from 13th to 17th October.
On his way out of Nigeria the good father and shepherd of Lighthouse Chapel International stopped at the Nigerian branch of the church to strengthen members, encourage them with the word of God and also to share fellowship.
It has been time well spent indeed and in Evangelist Dag’s own words ‘I want to preach about Christ and Him crucified till my dying day. God help me. It’s the best message!’
