Jesus Film Update – October 31, 2012


“I was a slave of sin,” said 51 year-old Suguare in Mozambique. “I was addicted to alcohol and went door to door to get money for more. A friend invited me to watch the JESUS Film. When I arrived there, the Spirit of God touched me and my life changed. I gave up smoking, drinking, and drugs. I feel free from sin and want to continue the rest of my life with the Lord.”
Pray for the change in Suguare to help others see God’s love.

“I was lost in sin, practicing idolatry, and alienated from God,”
said the viewer in Mexico. “The Lord touched my heart as I viewed the JESUS Film. I received Christ as my personal Savior. I am happy to be His follower and seek to serve Him as long as I am on this earth.”
Praise God for loving us at our worst and giving us new life.

“Children and teens are responding,”
said the team member in Chile. “At times, we face opposition from hostile teenagers. They are rude and abusive. Praise God, He works in their hearts and minds. Often they will return to us asking forgiveness and seeking to know the Lord. We feel divinely blessed to serve in the JESUS Film Harvest Partners ministry.”
Praise God for touching the hearts of the young people in Chile.
