GREAT miracles are expected to happen at Pastor Benny Hinnâ€™s crusade at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole on Friday and Saturday.
The assurance was given by Lubaga Miracle Cathedralâ€™s Pastor Robert Kayanja at a press conference at Light House Television yesterday.
Benny Hinn, a renowned international evangelist, is holding his first ever â€˜Holy Spirit Miracle Crusadeâ€™ in Uganda. He is the senior pastor of World Healing Church International, Irving Texas in USA.
Entrance is free at the crusade that begins at 5:00pm on Friday and 4:00pm on Saturday. Gates open at noon on both days.
The First Lady, Mrs. Janet Museveni, is expected to attend.
A choir of 5,000 drawn from various churches will minister at the crusade, Kayanja said.
Giant screens will also be placed outside the stadium.
Kampala Extra acting regional traffic chief Lawrence Niwabiine said the Uganda Taxi Operators and Driversâ€™ Association had agreed to avail 100 taxis at the Constitutional Square and both taxi parks to transport people to Namboole.
Kayanja said besides economic gain people would be changed spiritually and that Uganda would be in the lime light during and long after Benny Hinnâ€™s visit.
â€œPr. Benny Hinn emphasises through his teachings of the Holy Bible, the Cross of Calvary on which Jesus died for our salvation and the healing of our diseases,â€ said former ethics and integrity minister Tim Lwanga on behalf of the crusadeâ€™s organising committee.
He said another entrance had been reserved for the sick and disabled at the southern gate of the stadium.
Niwabiine discouraged people going to Namboole from carrying a lot of money and other valuables that could tempt pick pockets.
