“Miujiza! Miracles!” screamed the headline of Najia, one of the newspapers reporting on the Dar es Salaam Festival 2004. “This is marvelous! We have never seen anything like it, ” says Rev. Philemon from the Pentecostal Church, and concludes, “There has never been a crowd of this size in the history of Tanzania.” Several national leaders testified to the same. A wave of people came to receive Christ each night.
The counsellors reported of the unusual hunger in the people. There was a sense of being on “holy ground” as they spent considerable time sharing with each person who had responded for salvation. One of the most touching miracles during the festival was that of Puschal Kyondi, 7 years old with a large tumor on his head. He was brought to the platform wearing blue shorts and a white t-shirt on the opening night. Two operations had failed to remove the tumor. He had not been able to walk or stand for 3 years. During the prayer that first night, Jesus put an end to that. Puschal started walking. With each ensuing night the intensity and joy as God performed miracles kept growing.
