“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,” Anni Bonnke said in a statement on Saturday afternoon.

“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.”

Bonnke founded the international ministry of Christ for all Nations (CfaN) over 45 years ago, and currently has offices in the United States, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Nigeria, South Africa, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong.

Since 1987, through a host of major events in Africa and other parts of the world, the ministry has recorded more than 77 million documented decisions for Jesus Christ.

    It is not how long but how well. When he came to Nigeria as his last crusade visit with Daniel Kolenda, I wondered why his early ‘retirement’. But now I see, he was not going to be living for up to 80 years even! But it was a well fulfilled life. May God grant all his kin the fortitude to bear the loss. And to the entire christian body, may God help us all to fulfill our God given purpose as he has done.

    The Cape Town crusade in Valhalla Park is a reminder of the work you came to do in the Western Cape. Souls were saved and that was what you’ve done by God’s grace, a true servant of God going into all Africa to preach the Gospel to the lost, condolences to the Bonnke family,your husband, father, grandpa and as we knew him “God’s
    General” called home to be with His Father, He’s run the race of Faith and finished the course, there awaits a crown for him in eternity, be comforted by these words “absent in the body is to be present with the Lord”
