Over 5,000 salvations were recorded during the six-day evangelistic meeting in the Muslim-dominated area of Bawku in the nation of Ghana. God divinely protected Ed and the other missionaries as deadly riots broke out a week after the group’s departure!
Miracles abounded, especially among many deaf-mute people. His glory showed up at the medical clinic too as one woman barely able to walk on crutches went leaping out the door upon being healed.
"But when He (Jesus) saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them (Matthew 9:36-37 NKJV).
"Declare His glory among the nations," Psalm 96:3 states. That is what Ed and a ministry team of 10 endeavored to do in an eastern region of Ghana called Odumase- Krobo, a region ruled by idolatry.
According to local pastors, over 30 fetish priests came to the crusade area to sacrifice animals in angry opposition to the open-air-meeting. Despite their best efforts, over 5,000 people heard the gospel of grace and accepted Christ.
Local pastors and Christian leaders also were impacted by the five-day conference called "Supernatural Ministry." Ed shared timely messages on God’s willingness to change the nation through His power.

What happened when Ed Feuser went on a missionary adventure to Cameroon, West Africa? A ministry team of five held an open air meeting for six nights and a pastor’s conference for 50 pastors for five days. The group also ministered in prisons, Bible schools, churches and conducted street evangelism.
Most exciting was God’s protection and the outpouring of His Spirit in the Madagascar area where the meetings were held. This region is known for pagan animism, witchcraft, idolatry and violent crime. Witchdoctors actually gathered around the site, trying to curse the work of the ministry team.
Local pastors called it the first successful open air meeting in this area. Other groups had been forced to flee violent uprisings and angry stone-throwing crowds. Despite the opposition, over 2,000 accepted Christ and 50 rededicated their lives. Many people experienced healing miracles, such as a 14-year-old deaf boy who now has perfect heaing.

Why is LifeChange 4-U radio broadcast now heard in Europe? Why would this continent need Christian programming.
The influx of immigrants into Europe offers an incredible opportunity to witness for Christ. Nearly 30 million immigrants have flooded into Europe since 1945, many coming from continents where Christianity was restricted. Shortwave broadcsting is one of the ways to touch the hearts of different people groups with the Good News.
Islam is taking root so quickly in Europe that it is called the "second religion of Europe." Muslim communities are growing rapidly through immigration and an increasing birthrate. Committed Muslims are pouring in financing for the building of mosques and educational training, and are pursuing legislation to favor their religion. How much more should believers "discern the times" and utilize the airwaves for Christ.
Europe is identified as a post-Christian world. Younger Europeans have moved away from Christian values to belief in the occult, reincarnation and New Age thinking. The mindset of many Europeans is intolerance toward Christianity and a refusal to view scripture as absolute truth. Only the entrance of God’s Word gives light, according to Psalm 119:130. Agree in prayer with us that we can play a strategic part in countering this downward spiritual trend in Europe. Only the living Word of God can bring transformation in the lives of listeners. As Colossians 4:2-3 says, "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message..."
