The sad news reaching us is that Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke is dead. The surprising thing is that I thought about Pastor Reinhard Bonnke on Wednesday morning.
While I was preparing breakfast in the kitchen, I suddenly remembered how he came to Enugu State, Nigeria in 2010 or 2011, I can’t remember the exact year.
He was a Pastor who was loved by many. The popular evangelist was a true lover of Christ and the church.
The news of his demise was announced on his Official Facebook page by his family. The news read
“Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is with sorrow that the Bonnke Family would like to announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on December 7, 2019. For the past 60 years he has preached the glorious Gospel of Jesus throughout the entire world. We want to thank you on behalf of him and our family, for your kind love and unwavering support, which enabled him to preach the matchless message of salvation to countless people.
He preached Jesus…
“Great and marvelous are Your works,
Lord God Almighty!
Just and true are Your ways,
O King of the saints!
Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name?
For You alone are holy.
For all nations shall come and worship before You,
For Your judgments have been manifested.”
Anni Bonnke and Family
We kindly ask, in lieu of flowers, to please make a donation to Christ for all Nations – Africa Crusade.”
May God comfort his family, loved ones and fans all over the world. Rest in peace gallant soldier of Christ.
