The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has mourned the transition to heaven of the late German evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke saying that Nigeria was a great beneficiary of his missionary exploits to Africa.
President of CAN, Revered Samson Ayokunle in a press statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media & Communications, Pastor Bayo Oladeji, described Reinhard Bonke as “one of the greatest Generals of the gospel of eternal salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ on earth”.
According to him, “CAN and the entire Christian communities in Nigeria join the rest of Christians all over the world to mourn this fiery preacher and teacher of the Gospel and mentor to several evangelical leaders all around the world today.
“Reinhard Bonke has reached Africa and countries of the world through his ministry called Christ For All Nations preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through which millions of souls were saved into the Kingdom of God or received their healings “, CAN president stated.
The statement further maintained that “the body of Christ has lost one of its greatest assets. May God console and comfort his widow, Anni”.
“Nigeria is a great beneficiary of Bonnke’s Ministry and we will remain grateful to him and the Christ for All Nations as we commiserate with the team.”
