Your prayers help relieve financial stress…
“I could never repay what Jesus did for me,” said a new believer in Cuba. “Before I met Jesus, I was an alcoholic and gambler. I played games where I lost large amounts of money. I lost my marriage because of these vices. Today, I want to thank God for rescuing me from that life. God restored my health, finances, marriage, and home. I want to do God’s work because I am so thankful.”
Praise Jesus for lifting this man out of alcoholism and gambling.
“Whenever this film is shown, I always watch because it changed my life,” said Losoua, a new believer in Cote d’Ivoire. “I am a teacher by profession but could not save money because I went to bars every night with friends. I thought having friends was good, but having Jesus in my life is better. I decided to stop going to bars and keep my money in the bank. At the film showing, I decided to give my life to Jesus. I ask you to pray for me so my faith grows stronger.”
Pray for Losoua as he begins his new life in Christ.
“Praise God for demonstrating His power,” said a team member in Sri Lanka. “As we were getting ready to go to the JESUS Film showing, my phone rang. Ganeshan wanted to tell us about his mother. She was demon-possessed and extremely ill. She was known as a woman who made evil sacrifices to gods and goddesses in her home. After the showing, we went to meet Ganeshan’s mother. She told us all her money was wasted on sacrifices, doctors, and medicines. After praying for her, she was healed. Now she is happy she is delivered from the devil’s power. She is a new believer in Christ.”
Pray for this woman and her family as they grow in their faith.
- Pray for the JESUS Film teams to have safety and protection as they travel and show the JESUS Film in their country.
