Your prayers help share the gift of eternal life…
“My husband and I divorced last year,” said Adéola, a 40-year-old seamstress in Benin. “After our divorce, my husband became seriously sick and died. My husband’s family blames me for his death. After watching the JESUS film, I now know Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I have accepted Him into my heart. I also know God is the giver of life, and I am not responsible for my husband’s death.”
Pray for Adéola as she grows in her faith and shares this faith with her family.
“My friends and I spent a lot of time drinking,” said a young man in Guatemala. “Before I watched the JESUS film, I did not understand Christ died for me to take away my sins. The film touched my heart. I gave my life to Christ. The JESUS Film team encouraged me to work with the young people in my village. By sharing Christ with them, we help them not to give in to temptations and addictions, like I did.”
Pray for this young man as he works with the youth in his village to not be tempted by addictions.
“I grew up worshipping many gods and goddesses,” said Bimol in India. “I never heard about Jesus. One day, the JESUS Film team arrived in my village to share the JESUS film. While watching the film, I was convicted of my sins. I accepted Christ into my heart and want to serve Him for the rest of my life.”
Praise God Bimol heard the Good News and accepted Christ in his life.
- Pray for the family members of the JESUS Film teams, as they are separated while the team travels from town to town, sharing the JESUS film with those who have never heard about the life of Christ.
