Thousands flocked to the Garfield Sobers auditorium as early as 2 p.m yesterday to hear the preaching of international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke during a national service of Blessing and Spiritual Renewal. In fact, there was standing room only, with many having to stand throughout the more than three hour long service which was filled with ministry in song, dance, praise, worship and prayer. The service started promptly at 6 p.m. The congregation included Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, some members of the Cabinet as well as a number of pastors. German-born Boonke who is well known for conducting city-wide crusades across the continent with as many as 1.6 million people attending a single meeting, is also credited for leading more 54 million people to Christ. In his message he reminded is listeners that no one was without sin; Jesus loves sinners, and that He  died for the salvation of the world – Barbados included. Full story in tomorrow's DAILY NATION
