Jesus Film Update – June 20, 2012

“Jaime is bringing people to church,” said the team member in the Dominican Republic. “Jaime was freed from his addiction to drugs. He is active in the local church. His passion is evident as he brings others to church to meet Jesus.”

Pray for God’s blessings on Jaime as he is involved in Kingdom work.

“They are afraid of their neighbors,” said the team member in an Asia Pacific country. “Mr. and Mrs. N are new believers and we are discipling them in their home. The couple wants to go to church but live in a resistant area. They are concerned for their safety should their neighbors learn of their new faith.”

Pray for those who live in gospel resistant countries to remain strong in their faith.

“They apologized and begged our forgiveness,” said the team member in a South Asia country. “We were showing the JESUS Film in a village when two young men shouted at us to stop the showing. They used abusive language and forcibly told the people to stop watching. We prayed for the village and young men and then left. We returned two days later and were approached by the young men asking us to forgive their actions. They wanted to know about Jesus. They helped us set up another showing in the village. We praise God for changing the hearts of these young men.”

Praise God for making the hearts of these young men receptive to His love.
