Your prayers help give peace to the anxious…
“I was a contract killer earning lots of money,” said 20-year-old Anwar in South Asia. “I also was a drug addict. My parents were very concerned for me and made sacrifices to their gods and goddesses on my behalf. One day I overdosed on drugs and alcohol. My neighbor, who is a Christ-follower, took me to the doctor to be treated. When I felt better, my neighbor invited me to a JESUS film showing. I was surprised with the many miracles Jesus performed. I realized none of my gods were like Jesus! I asked Jesus to forgive my sins and cleanse my heart. From that day, my life has changed. I have no fear. God is now blessing me and I have peace in my heart.”
Praise God for the new life Anwar now has in Christ.
“Everything my husband and I earned went to the doctors who were treating my illness,” said Daniata in Togo. “There was no peace in our home with our four children. When the JESUS film came to our village, our family watched the life of Christ. We realized Jesus was the answer to our problems. My family and I gave our hearts to Jesus. Now our lives have completely changed. God is in control. We have peace in our hearts and in our family.”
Praise God for the peace Daniata and her family now have in Christ!
“Because of the problems in our family I became stressed and anxious,” said 59-year-old Mario in Ecuador. “I used alcohol and cigarettes to forget our family problems. When the JESUS film was shown in our neighborhood, I joined my wife in watching the life of Christ. After watching the JESUS film, I gave my heart to Christ. I am no longer stressed or anxious about our family, and no longer addicted to cigarettes and alcohol. I am free and a new person in Christ. My wife has been attending church and was healed of the seizures she had for many years. I now witness to my coworkers what God has done in my life.”
Pray for Mario as he grows in his faith and witnesses to his friends and coworkers of what God has done in his life.
