Setting Captives Free in Freetown
Sierra Leone is a beautiful country located along the southwestern part of the West African coastline. It is among the top diamond producing nations in the world, and mineral exports remain the main foreign currency earner. Sierra Leone is also home to the third largest natural harbour in the world where shipping from all over the globe berth at Freetown's famous Queen Elizabeth II Quay. Despite this natural wealth, 70% of its people live in poverty.
The nation of Sierra Leone couldn’t be more ready for the precious gospel message of salvation and hope in Jesus Christ as it recovers from probably the most brutal civil war in modern history. We count it a great privilege to be used by the Lord to announce the only hope of glory which is in Jesus Christ.
The Campaign Nights
Multitudes filled the National Stadium to hear Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills passionately preach the simple yet powerful gospel message of salvation each night. Thousands of Freetowners listened attentively from the stadium stands as he preached; “The Narrow Way and the Broad Way”, “Except You Repent, You Will likewise Perish”, “Remember Lot’s Wife!” and “The House on a Rock”.
Tens of thousands more kept coming each night until the bursting crowds overflowed onto the racing tracks and football turf of the stadium! Traffic around the stadium came to a standstill as many more were still attempting get to the stadium on the final night.
The entire atmosphere in the stadium was electrifying as Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills preached and invited many hungry souls to receive Jesus in their hearts. The response to the alter call was almost a stampede! The joy was indescribable as several thousands begun to run hastily from the stands to the front of the stage to accept the Lord as their saviour!
At Freetown, we saw amazing miracles each night. Everyone was in awe of the fantastic healing testimonies on the stage.
A totally blind ex police officer who, was brought in by his daughter, had his sight restored to the amazement of the whole crowd! He said how he even had to quit his job because of his predicament. But during the campaign as the evangelist prayed he felt the power of God and his sight was restored! Hallelujah!
