The salvation of thousands was recorded last week at an outdoor gospel campaign in Somotillo, Nicaragua, despite opposition from local witches who attempted to curse the field and block the event by Shake the Nations Ministries.
According to God TV, It was the first stop on a “Buenas Nuevas Nicaragua” campaign across 17 regions in the Central American nation by Shake the Nations, which will hold a mass gospel event at each location.
It is the largest gospel initiative in the history of the ministry and is being conducted in partnership with a local missions ministry, Mountain Gateway.
“The inaugural campaign of Buenas Nuevas Nicaragua was beyond words – the Holy Spirit moved in a mighty way!” evangelist Nathan Morris, who founded Shake the Nations Ministries in 2006, wrote on his Facebook page. “... Witches had attempted to place sacrifices and curses around the field to stop the people from coming and hearing the gospel, but the Lion of Judah roared, and the devil was defeated tonight! Signs, wonders, miracles, and thousands of salvations displayed the authority of Jesus Christ! Every knee shall bow! Somotillo for Jesus!”
Morris says Nicaragua is “ripe” for a gospel harvest. He will lead four events in the next two months alone: Chinandega (March 17-18), Leon (March 31-April 1), Esteli (April 14-15) and Ocotal (April 28-29).
Evangelist Mauricio Canales of Shake the Nations said, “souls are being added to the kingdom” in Nicaragua.
“The Holy Spirit is already moving in a mighty way on the ground of Nicaragua,” Morris said.
The Nicaraguan campaign, Morris noted, has seen “thousands of churches” and “thousands of pastors and leaders” coming together “from all denominations, in one spirit, with one accord, that the gospel of Jesus Christ would be preached in the nation of Nicaragua.”
“We believe that this is the mandate from heaven,” he shared. “... We believe already the Holy Spirit is preparing the hearts and the people of Nicaragua.”
