Made a Liberian Chief Here in Monrovia

It is official; I am a Liberian Chief...in a spiritual sense! That is what a group of Liberian pastors said as they adorned me with an official Liberian Chief outfit this morning at an impromptu church ceremony attended by about fifty Liberian pastors here in Monrovia.


About 10,000 people including Liberian President
and Vice President attended the First night of Liberia
for Jesus Festival on Friday night.

The international Committee for the End-Time Revival in Liberia are a group of evangelical and Pentecostal Churches both in Liberia and in the United States that have extended an invitation to SWIM ministries to partner with them in a nationwide evangelism, reconciliation and healing Festival in 2012 touching several cities across Liberia.

During the civil war, the group was able to mobilize a nation-wide campaign called Liberia for Jesus that saw prayer rallies held across several cities as well as the gospel proclaimed simultaneously across all the provinces of Liberia in 2002 as they called for the end to the civil war at that time.

As Liberia rebuilds from the ruins, there is the need for reconciliation and healing from the scars and wounds that are still fresh. They feel that God directed them to Shine in the World International Ministries as the right partner organization with the churches in Liberia for this major campaign scheduled for the Fall of 2012.

On learning that I was here travelling with Franklin Graham for the All Liberia Life Festival, the pastors convened an impromptu reception gathering this morning and invited me to the occasion. May the Lord honor their hearts that are full of passion and joy in Jesus Christ.

On a different note, Franklins' festival is going very well. Yesterday we had about 10,000 people that attended the opening Crusade. 2700 people made decisions for Jesus Christ (my unofficial estimates).

This morning I estimated more than 25,000 children at the Children Fest with Franklin's Associate Evangelist R.V. Brown. Several thousands of kids responded to the invitation. You can watch my webcast segment on Tuesday March 29th at www.billygraham.org. God is moving!
