Heaven was let open at the weekend when Prophet T.B Joshua of the Synaguoge Church of All Nations led the people on a two-day high power crusade to Paraguay.
The atmosphere was filled with high expectations as Paraguayans from all walks of life and government as well as religious leaders trooped to the Estadio Defensores Del Chaco in the capital, Asuncion to receive God’s touch.
Not less than a hundred wheelchaired people were healed of various ailments as they were seen leaving the magnificent stadium
with their wheelchairs raised while they walked unaided for the first time in many years.
The two-day crusade which rounded off on Saturday August 12, started at about 6pm local time on Friday, August 11 and saw many streets deserted, albeit with massive pockets of traffic on major roads leading to the stadium.
Over two million people from the city of Asuncion graced the occasion. Some of them who spoke with local media said no such miracles have ever been witnessed before in Paraguay. This was corroborated by one Mr. Mario Martinez, a Mexican who came all the way from Mexico City to attend the crusade.
The high point of the crusade was the official presentation of highest National Honour by the Paraguayan Parliament to Prophet T.B Joshua.
He was also presented with the key to the capital city of Asuncion by the Municipal Council – an indication that the city has been handed over to God for His blessing through Prophet T.B Joshua.
It would be recalled that the man of God was received by highly expectant Paraguayans at the nation’s International Airport. The Secretary General of the Parliament of Paraguay, Dej Medina Paredes, led the country’s high-powered committee which received Prophet Joshua upon arrival.
She said: “I am very excited and can see a lot of expectation in the people from Paraguay because they are waiting for a spiritual transformation through the coming of this message from Christ. All of us are waiting for that spiritual transformation.
“We want to receive him very well, we want to be healed and as a Member of Parliament, I appreciate his coming. We are a privileged nation to have him visit our country.
The local media had also reported that most of the hotels in the capital, Asuncion were declared filled while many international visitors were seen making hotel bookings for the event.
Earlier, Prophet TB Joshua had held crusades in Columbia, Mexico, South Korea and Peru. His international crusades have always been huge successes with many suggesting that no other African Pastor has been able to match him internationally.
