Your prayers help open doors to the miracle of God’s work…
“Jesus healed my broken back,” declared 22-year-old Asfa in South Asia. “Previously, I had an accident which broke my back. The doctors tried many treatments without success. My only choice was an operation. Most of my days were spent lying in bed since it was more painful to sit or stand. My brother would help me into my wheelchair occasionally to go outside. One day, he took me to see the JESUS film in our neighborhood. While watching the film, I cried and prayed for Jesus to heal me without an operation. I knew He had the power to heal! As we were going home, a boy collided into my wheelchair and it toppled over. I did not feel pain! Jesus healed me!”
Praise the Lord for His healing touch upon Asfa's back.
“I worked at night clubs as a prostitute,” said 25-year-old Helene in Togo. “When people told me about Jesus, I wasn’t interested. One night I watched the JESUS film and God opened my eyes. I realized my behavior was very bad. My friends and I wanted to receive Jesus into our hearts and lives. Five of my friends from the nightclub and I have accepted Christ into our lives. We are now attending discipleship classes to learn more about God.”
Praise God for the difference Christ has made in Helene and her friends’ lives.
“I have no words to describe the despair I felt,” said a man in Ecuador. “My wife abandoned me and took my two children. My life became so difficult. I lost my job and the few things I had left. I decided to visit one of my friends who I hadn’t seen for a long time. He asked me to come to a JESUS film showing with him. When the movie ended, I asked God to come into my life. I cannot explain the peace I have in the midst of my situation. I know God will help me through my challenges.”
Pray for this man to grow in his faith as he shares the peace only God can give with his neighbors.
