The Elijah Challenge according to Houston Pastor who hosted Reinhard Bonnke Crusade


Pastor Donnell Vigers and his wife Stephanie lead Church on Fire Christian Center and often host city-wide events in Houston like the Reinhard Bonnke Crusade in 2013.

They attended The Elijah Challenge Training in January 2018. Below is their feedback.

“Firstly, your two-day training was absolutely amazing. We have been to Evangelism training sessions by some well-known leaders but this training far exceeded what we had been taught in the past. We appreciate so much your humility, love and passion that you have to fulfill your Last Days assignment and your fear of God is clearly evident. We love how your teachings are strictly according to the Word of God. It was an honor to be in your presence and attend the class.

One of our ministers who attended with us texted me last night about her daughter (40-year-old). Her daughter came to her with shoulder pain and asked her to massage the area. Instead, she used her power and authority to command the pain to leave in Jesus’ name and it did. Her daughter was so touched that she wept. Hallelujah!

We feel that this eye-opening teaching should be known by every true follower of Jesus Christ in our city and it would be an honor to promote this training and serve you in whatever capacity you need us so please let us know how we can be on assistance.”.

Other comments on the Training

“I am still so exhilarated over the seminar: it was fabulous! I have a new nickname for you two: “the luau Laus” because you spread out such a feast! …Anyway, let’s do more together!!  And call me anytime; you can use the chapel. 

I keep seeing a citywide training with you and the Vigers in a big church like Lakewood. And the floor level is packed full of 600 volunteers, eager to learn. Many were involved at Reinhard Bonnke, witnessed the healings and have been thirsty to learn since 2013. The Vigers are humble on-fire ministers of the True Word who follow God’s instructions to set the stage for harvest and revival in Houston. They host community wide event after event. Again, thank you for coming and teaching all of us!”

From a young lady who had attended the Training a week earlier in a different location and had urged her parents and brother to attend:
I have been meaning to message you both about my parents and [my brother] Daniel. Before anything, I just want to thank you for your ministry and for your obedience to teach and share and build up the church and raise more disciples. My whole family has been blessed by your obedience.
On Friday night before the training started, my brother sent me a text message that said, “I’m stuck going to a conference when I could be working. You just had to tell Mom about the conference.” Then on Saturday evening, he sent me another text that said, “I was healed today and although it won’t be an easy journey from here on, if I’m persistent then I won’t be troubled. I also need to renew my mind every day, too.”
I called him and he told me about how everyone prayed for him and how grateful and thankful he was that God brought him to the conference. He apologized to me for the text from the night before as well, haha. I have never heard him like that before—so full of joy and really believing that God has the power to heal him. I was so thankful to God for that.
My parents also loved it and said that they learned so much. My mom was very encouraged and said my dad participated eagerly. My mom has been looking for trainings like this and even other believers like you two for some time now. I think she feels more encouraged than she has in the last several years.
