Final Report from Europe Ablaze TourWeekly Update: November 28th
Publish date: 11/28/2018Greetings in the Name of Jesus. We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and a phenomenal month of November.
We have just returned from our 16-city tour of Europe. Wow! What an extraordinary trip! Supernatural things are happening. In these one-night meetings, we are seeing what would normally take a week, take place in one night! It is a totally different format from what we typically do but we are having a powerful impact.
Many people think that Europe is finished. They are wrong! God is raising up an army in Europe, and we are seeing Europe shaken by the fire of God. Within the next 2 years, we are believing God to light fires in 300 cities around the world—with 100 leaders set on fire in each city—resulting in 30,000 leaders ignited with the fire of God by the end of 2020.
Read below to see the full report of what God did in Europe. It's truly remarkable!

City #1: Stockholm, Sweden
Attendance: 630 | Altar Call: 223 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 103
Many hungry people came. The fire of God fell and the altar was filled.
City #2: Vestfossen, Norway
Attendance: 502 | Altar Call 182 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 104
The place was packed and the fire of God fell in the Fredfoss Kultursenter. This was an old paper mill started by Hans Nielsen Hauge, a Norwegian Revivalist of the late 1700s to early 1800s. He shook Norway, built 1,400 companies, and helped break Norway free from Denmark. He was so powerful; he was thrown into prison by the religious groups of the day. This all happened after he started the homegroup movement that broke the historical church. The first Norwegian money was printed in this former paper mill. This building is owned by a very wealthy, powerful, holiness Pentecostal group. I don’t think I could have been in a better place in Norway.
City #3: Alta, Norway
Attendance: 132 | Altar Call: 68 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 25
I have been wanting to come to this region for many years now with the precious Sami people in the northernmost part of Norway. They follow the reindeer of Scandinavia—across Norway, Sweden, and Finland. People came hungry—some from remote regions of the north by car and boat. A precious lady waited for over 10 years for us to come. She drove two hours to serve us a homemade meal after the service.
City #4: Helsinki, Finland
Attendance: 580 | Altar: 123 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 140
Helsinki, Finland was a strategic meeting with Pastors Tomi & Sanna Lehto. We were able to meet with heads of government. The fire fell, the altar was filled, and many were touched by the hand of God. We are so excited to see what is happening in Finland. Finland shall be saved!
City #5: Bratislava, Slovakia
Attendance: 2,250 | Altar: 1,340 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 270
This was country #61 for me. This was my first time in Slovakia. The place was packed with over 2,250 people. People came by bus and car—some from 17 hours away. The fire of God swept across the place. It looked liked tornadoes—it was just like everything I preached at the Surge Conference—bodies were flying through the air—people were so hungry. The key pastor was touched in the meetings in Budapest, Hungary in 1998. He now has 50 churches—35 in Slovakia and 15 in the Czech Republic.
City #6: Budapest, Hungary
Attendance: Over 12,000 | Altar Call: 3,100 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 1,250
This meeting was totally unplanned and totally supernatural. The Saturday was supposed to be our off day, but the Lord had other plans. The last time that I was in Budapest, Hungary was 20 years ago with Pastor Sandor Nemeth–I was just 37 years old.
Pastor Sandor was sitting in his office on the Friday night that we were in Bratislava—his son-in-law had driven two hours to join us in the meeting that night. While he was worshipping in his office, he looked up and saw someone standing to the left of him and it was the Angel of the Lord. The angel told him to call Rodney Howard-Browne and tell him to come to Budapest tomorrow night. He texted his son-in-law at the meeting in Bratislava and Pastor Eric brought me word that Pastor Sandor wanted us to come. I didn't know about the angel until the following day, but I heard the audible voice of the Lord say that I should go and strengthen Pastor Sandor as he was under major attack. This was a completely supernatural, Book of Acts setup. This is what we preach! This is how we have to live in this hour, like what was seen in Bible days. I knew that God had divinely sent us and felt very humbled.
I hadn’t been in this church in 20 years, and I didn’t know what to expect. The night service was jammed—it was standing room only. It was as if we ended the service on the Friday night, 20 years ago, and I walked out on Saturday night—like nothing had changed. It literally floored me. A megachurch that never stopped in the fire of revival. It was like back to the future. The fire of God hit the place and people were radically touched, once again. The Lord sent us on assignment. We couldn't have planned what happened; it was completely supernatural.
In 20 years, their church has grown to over 70,000 members. They've built a weekly newspaper. They also have the 3rd largest 24-hour news network and have put hundreds of people in government.
City #7: Chișinău, Moldova
Attendance: 580 | Altar: 385 | Ministers and Leaders Mobilized: 286
This was my first time in Moldova—country number 62. The fire fell and many were touched by the power of God. The desperation for the things of God in this country is beyond imagination!
City #8: Sofia, Bulgaria
Attendance: 805 | Altar: 380 | Ministers and Leaders Mobilized: 150
Many were touched by the fire of God. It was an awesome night! Pastor Maksim and his wife Natashov are doing such a great work for God in Sofia, Bulgaria at just 26 years of age. They are doing what has never been done before—amazing. Bulgaria and Europe will be shaken by the hand of God.
City #9: Bologna, Italy
Attendance: 460 | Altar 168 | Ministers and Leaders Mobilized: 140
People came from all over Italy and packed the place; there was standing room only. Many were ignited for the harvest to see Italy shaken.
City #10: Hanau, Germany
Attendance: 558 | Altar 304 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 165
From all over Germany, hungry people came. The fire fell, many were touched, and the altar was filled! I found out that I had given a prophetic word of encouragement to the pastor in 1996, in a store in Israel. I did not know that his church had been stolen from him, and he never told me that. When he returned home, the Lord turned his whole ministry around and he has a great church today.
City #11: Zürich, Switzerland
Attendance: 465 | Altar: 210 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 110
It was great to be back with Pastors Peter and Vivian Hasler in Zurich. A huge crowd jammed the church, the fire fell and many Swiss were mightily touched.
City #12: Paris, France
Attendance: 1,020 | Altar: 185 | Ministers and Leaders Mobilized: 240
This was a very strategic church. Hungry Parisians filled the place, including many ministers and leaders. Many of them had never seen the power of God fall like it did. And many were touched and ignited to see France shaken.
City #13: Amsterdam, Holland
Attendance: 1,145 | Altar: 235 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 320
We were with Pastors Ben & Jackie Kroeske of the River Church Amsterdam, Holland, in their new venue in the morning. The place was packed. Then we went into a neutral venue for Sunday night. The Dutch were powerfully touched and inspired to see the Netherlands shaken!
City #14: London, England
Attendance: 505 | Altar: 87 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 260
We spent one night in London—the follow-up service after London Ablaze, held in September. Pastor Brad Norman said it was like the cherry on the top. The Lord did mighty things in this meeting.
City #15: Wolverhampton, England
Attendance: 535 | Altar: 190 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 110
The venue was packed—standing room only. The fire fell, the altar was filled, and many were ignited by the fire of the Holy Ghost!
City #16: Dublin, Ireland
Attendance: 1,034 | Altar: 684 | Ministers & Leaders Mobilized: 130
This was my first time in Ireland—country number 63. Ireland was next level! It was totally phenomenal! What an epic conclusion to the 16-city trip—17 meetings in 14 nations. We believe Europe will experience another Great Spiritual Awakening.
Thank you to each of you for your prayers and financial support for the Europe Ablaze Tour and throughout 2018. Together, we are making an eternal difference in the nations and seeing this great Gospel spread to the ends of the earth.
If you aren't a monthly RMI Partner with us, I challenge you to prayerfully consider becoming one. Please, generously invest towards this strategic mission of winning souls, reviving the church, and mobilizing the army. The time is now! Ask the Lord what He would have you to do and be a part of seeing whole nations shaken by the power of God.
“Don’t keep hoarding for yourselves earthly treasures that can be stolen by thieves. Material wealth eventually rusts, decays, and loses its value. 20 Instead, stockpile heavenly treasures for yourselves that cannot be stolen and will never rust, decay, or lose their value. Matthew 6:19-20 TPT
Also, if you live anywhere in the Tampa Bay area, join us this Sunday at The River at Tampa Bay as we celebrate our 22nd birthday as a church. It is going to be a powerful time. Don't miss out!
We are praying for you. May this coming month of December and Christmas season be the greatest!
We love you and thank God for you.
Drs. Rodney & Adonica Howard-Browne
I preached a very special message this past Sunday at The River called "Living in the Supernatural" and then on Sunday night I shared part 2 on "Supernatural Deliverance."
