“At 19, Jesus touched my heart,” said Rosie in the Dominican Republic. “I visited a local church several times but did not know the Lord. While watching the JESUS Film, I felt God change my heart. I am a new person. I thank Him every day for saving my life.”
Praise God for touching the hearts of the lost with His love.
“Mr. N was not convinced,” said the team member in Indonesia. “The 65 year-old man held tightly to his beliefs. We witnessed to him for some time, but he said nothing could change his mind. We did all we knew to do. The supernatural persuasion of God made the difference. Mr. N gave this heart to Christ letting go of his former faith. Praise God!”
Pray for Mr. N to be an effective witness for the Lord.
“Manjhali was scolded for her faith,” said the team member in India. “Manjhali listened carefully to God’s Word. She told us she wanted to become a follower of Jesus. We prayed with her and she accepted Christ as her Savior. Her family is not happy about this choice and are abusive toward her.”
Pray for Manjhali to remain strong in her faith.
