Dear 1GDA partners and friends,
The last few weeks have been a real challenge to the whole world, yet we are not defeated but put our trust in God and Him alone!
After days of prayer and communicating with our ministry partners in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the board of 1GDA has determined to postpone our May event date till November 2020:
- Looking at dates from all ministry schedules, weather, political situations and/or other events (holidays), we found that the most common available date for rescheduling of the event is Thursday, November 12 to Sunday, November 15. In the past days, we found that almost all partners are in consent with this date.
- Postponing until November is still very much dependent upon the global situation. We pray and believe that the devil is defeated and all will be back to “normal” soon. “Normal” is going to be a stretch for many countries for some time, as well as for ministries to recover from the losses they’ve experienced due to crusade cancellations, donor drop-outs, and so forth.
In the coming weeks, we will arrange event details, including live streaming and new dates for television broadcasting. Please share this information with your circle and help us to use this time to find partners to cover the countries still unassigned in our plan to bring God to all of Africa.
I do believe that 2020 is a crucial year. The devil tries everything to hinder God’s plan, but if we pray, stand together and fight the good fight of faith, we will see an even greater harvest than what we would have ever anticipated!
When CfaN was kept out of Nigeria for almost ten years, Pastor Bonnke and the team did not whine and stay home. They prepared and continued moving forward, knowing that one day the door will open. Pastor Bonnke said in those days, “The devil will pay back ten times.” In our millennium crusade, we had on one weekend 3.4 million registered decisions for Christ!!! The devil surely had to pay back ten times! So even though 1GDA has been postponed and the devil thinks he has won, he will always be the loser, and we will see a harvest like never before!
Praying for you all,
Blessings & greetings and looking forward to hearing back from you,
Rev. Siegfried Tomazsewski
