“I resented God”, said the viewer in Mexico. “I was filled with sadness because of losing my son to drugs. I was mad at God. Watching the JESUS Film, allowed me to see the love God has for me. I saw Christ die for my sins. I received Jesus as my personal Savior. I am happy serving the Lord and taking discipleship classes. My life has changed completely and I work with other people who also believe in Jesus.”
Pray for the testimony of this viewer in Mexico to be used to God’s glory.
“It was an exciting and thrilling experience,” said the JESUS Film Harvest Partners coordinator in the Philippines. “The month was challenging because of heavy rains. Every place we were going to show the film was as muddy as a rice field. We worked with a local pastor to show the film at his church. The youth put on a mini concert and 51 people gathered to watch the JESUS Film. To God’s glory, several made decisions for Christ!”
Praise God for providing the resources to share JESUS in this village.
“God provided in the midst of problems,” said the team member in Sri Lanka. “The journey to the village was difficult on the mountain roads. It was rainy and we needed a location to show the JESUS Film. God knew our need and provide a family who allowed us to show the film in their home. We praise God for His provision!”
Praise the Lord for His solutions to the problems in our lives.
-Pray for the teams facing persecution for sharing God’s love.
