According to a news release issued from Kinshasa, before the first night of the festival, DR Congolese president Joseph Kabila invited the speaker Rev. Dr. Jaerock Lee to the presidential palace for a friendly dialogue. President Kabila expressed his appreciation to the Rev. Lee for visiting DR Congo to conduct the crusade, and asked him to pray for the unity, peace, and prosperity of DR Congolese.

The release continues, in the first night, there was a sudden rain fall in Kinshasa which cooled down the heat and drove away the insects for the congregation gathered in the stadium. Pastor Peter, the interpreter from English to Lingala (local language) said, “We consider rain here in Kinshasa the blessing of God. Tonight we have rainfall which symbolize the blessing of God to us.”
Rev. Jaerock Lee spoke on the first night on “Why is Jesus Our Only Savior”. He also testified to countless instances of the work of God’s power manifested at Manmin and around the world in the name of Jesus Christ.

People stood up from their wheelchairs and threw away crutches while people who had been suffering from various kinds of diseases received healing giving glory to God Trinity. The stage was filled by an innumerable number of people wishing to testify to their healing.
