“The community has great need,” said the team member in Panama. “We showed the JESUS Film to the people who live in a difficult neighborhood. They were touched by the love of God during the presentation. Many cried with emotion. One lady became a follower that night and is excited to tell her family about her hope in Christ.”
Pray for this woman as she shares her faith with her family.
“I did not go to church,” said Maria in Argentina. “A neighbor asked me if we could show the JESUS Film in the uncultivated land next to my home. We showed it two nights. It was a beautiful experience as I met Jesus. My neighbor asked if I would be willing to have a weekly Bible study in my home. Now the church comes to me, and my family has changed in many positive ways since meeting Jesus.”
Praise God for meeting us where we are.
“I suffered from stomach pains,” said Pauline in Burkina Faso. “During the JESUS Film presentation, I felt inner peace in my heart and a moment later I was healed. I thank Jesus!”
Praise God for healing Pauline and placing peace in her heart.
