Jesus Film Update – August 1, 2012


“The people are superstitious” said the team member in Nicaragua. “They recount legends and myths of elves and apparitions. The children don’t read and begin to work in the coffee fields at an early age. The JESUS Film helps to bring the light of Christ to this place.”
Pray for the people bound by superstition to be free in Christ.
“We see a spirit of unity,” said the team member in the Philippines. “The new church has increased in members attending Sunday school and Bible studies. The people are working together hand in hand, and exhibiting a spirit of unity and coordination.”
Praise God for the growth seen in this new church.
“We showed the JESUS Film at Poltu’s house,” said the team member in South Asia. “Brother Poltu was interested when we talked with him about our Lord. He offered to help us with a presentation. When we arrived at his home, we were encouraged to find a hundred men, women and children waiting to watch the film. As we set up the equipment, Poltu asked the people to watch the film without any interruptions. The viewers paid close attention and were amazed by the power of Jesus over illness and demons. Many were open to receive the knowledge of Christ.”
Praise God for the local people who help the team share JESUS.
