“My life was a total disaster without Christ,” said the viewer in Honduras. “I drank and smoked. Because of seeing the JESUS Film, I decided to accept Christ and follow Him. My life has changed. I am thankful to God for the servants who brought the JESUS Film to our areas. We are forgotten people.”
Praise God for remembering the forgotten.
“We received five handmade chairs,” said the viewer in the Philippines. “We thank God the wood chairs were donated to us to use for our Bible study time. The people eagerly desire to hear God’s Word and grow spiritually. The chairs are a great encouragement to us.”
Praise God for the gratitude of the believers in Philippines and the joy expressed over five wooden chairs.
“I was a drunken idol worshipper,” said Nandakumars in Sri Lanka. “I did not want to be around people who prayed or have anything to do with church. I knew I was making bad choices. The JESUS Film Harvest Partners team members spoke with me often. One day, I was very drunk and involved in a fight. The team members were sad to see me this way. They began to pray for me and I fell on the ground confessing my sins and bad habits. The devil vanished from me. I know God’s love is with me.”
Pray for Nandakumars as he creates new habits which help him grow in his walk with Christ.
