I have just received word that Dr David Yonggi Cho stepped into his eternal reward today and is now in the presence of The Lord. What a powerful Man of God he was, truly an apostle of the Lord.
It was he who first taught me how to pray and I will forever be grateful for that revelation. When I first stepped into the sanctuary of Yoido Full Gospel Church the tangible glory of God was overwhelming. There was an unmistakable roar that permeated the atmosphere as tens of thousands in unison prayed in the Holy Ghost.
