“My name is Matías. I am 24 years old and a member of the national police. Eight months ago I found out I had Leukemia, and I am now being treated with chemotherapy. In all honesty, I have not been feeling well, but since I received Christ as my Savior, I know that I am already improving. Jesus lays claim to my life and even though the doctor told me that my condition is serious, I know God can heal if He desires.

Protest with a Stick

 

Bangladesh
June 17, 2009

We were setting up to show the JESUS Film in a village. The people were agreeable but one man was shouting at us with bad language. He came toward us with a stick to beat us. Some of the people stopped him. When the situation calmed down, we were able to start the film show. The people watched with intensity. Some were crying when the soldiers hung Jesus on the cross. After watching, several people came forward and asked questions. We were able to pray with the sick and bring many to a personal relationship with Christ.

 It was exciting to see ten people stand up and give their lives to Jesus! After seeing Jesus call His disciples in the film, the people stood to accept Christ. The people testified, “He is praying for us day and night, we must receive Him today and follow Him as King of Kings.” The people all joined the local church and are serving Jesus.

Ramiro owns a small snack place in the city park where we showed the JESUS Film. Even though Ramiro did not feel well, he watched the film. Through the JESUS Film, God touched his heart and he realized that Christ died for him. After the JESUS Film, he prayed to accept Christ as his Savior. He was glad he stayed to watch the film. The cell group leader visited Ramiro a week after the presentation and Ramiro is continuing in the ways of the Lord. Ramiro’s daughter Maria is also a believer now.

Other Religions See JESUS

 

Bangladesh

We worked with Akter to show the JESUS Film in his village. After the film began, a few members of another religion came and said, ’Who is showing this film? Stop this film show right now. If you do not stop it, we will break the projector and screen.’ Then we stopped the film. Akter talked with the group and told them that the film is not bad, it is a life story of a prophet. This religion also has prophets. We told them that our film is very good film and we can learn many good things from the film.

My name is Rafaela. As I watched the JESUS Film, I felt a rush of heat and a rush of coolness pass through my body!  It is hard for me to explain but I felt the presence of God! I give thanks to God for the sacrifice of Jesus, who by His love saved me. My prayer is that all my family will also know Jesus.

Cooked Bananas and Fellowship

 

Philippines

Dumas prepared cooked bananas for our snack as we watched the JESUS Film in her living room. She invited her friends to her home. We enjoyed wonderful fellowship. It was fantastic to share the gospel in this kind of setting. This is one of the creative ways we are seeking to grow the church in the Philippines. We are using many evangelism tools to reach the community.
