Jesus Film Update – March 7, 2012


“The people are forgetting the past,” said the team member in the Philippines. “Praise the Lord for doing miracles in the lives of the people. People’s lives are changing as they are moving forward, leaving old things behind. They recognize the love of God and His kindness. As workers, we are encouraged to see the people respond to the Word of God. Pray for their on-going discipleship.”
Join with us in prayer for one family who opened their house for Bible study.

“I could not stand on my feet,”
said the 27 year-old viewer in the Dominican Republic. “I was passing by the location of the JESUS Film presentation, and stayed to watch the movie. I felt God speak to my life. I felt warm and cold at the same time. I accepted Jesus right then. I was so moved I could not stand.”
Praise God for this new believer in the Dominican Republic.

“I had peace after accepting the Lord,”
said the viewer in Sri Lanka. “I was raised to follow other religious ways. I did not know Jesus as my personal Savior. A friend of mine kept talking about Jesus and sharing about His love. The teachings were beautiful. I wanted to learn more and began reading the Bible. I learned Jesus was crucified for my sins. After accepting Christ as my Savior, I have peace in my life.”
Pray for the peace of Christ to permeate other lives.
