I’m absolutely speechless about what the Lord Jesus did here in Wendo Genet, Ethiopia. We witnessed God move in an incredible way, resulting in thousands of decisions for Christ and amazing miracles. More than 600 first-time decisions for Christ were recorded and are being carefully followed up by the local churches.

God really had His protecting hand upon us. A nearby tree broke and fell because of a very heavy storm. It plunged to the ground, missing our big sound tower by just 2 yards. If the tree would have hit the tower, our campaign would have probably ended. But God was faithful and didn’t allow it to happen.

I was deeply moved in spirit on Sunday. Approximately 1,500 people responded to an altar call for those who want to be used by God as missionaries. Only eternity will reveal the fruit of what God did here.

A young boy came to the crusade accompanied by his father on Friday. He had attended the first night of the crusade. They said the boy had been deaf. After prayer the first night of the crusade, they went home.

The next day the boy got into a squabble with one of his brothers, who blurted out, “You are so dumb!” To everyone’s surprise, the boy responded, “I’m not dumb!” He would have not heard the insult before. They testified in front of a rejoicing crowd that the boy can hear perfectly. Glory to God!

A man with cataracts testified of his healing, saying he could see perfectly. A baby with a terrible lung disease that had been taken to many doctors was healed according to the testimony of her mother. She had run out of money, having spent it all on doctors, but on Thursday she said the power of God had come on her and the baby was completely healed. You can see videos of some of these testimonies on my Facebook page.

Chris Franz founded Cita (standing for "Christ Is The Answer") Ministries in 1998. He has since led nearly 70 crusades in Africa.
