Your prayers help strengthen a weary world…
“On the third night, I gave my life to Christ,” said Peter, a carpenter in Sierra Leone. “I knew deep in my heart I did not take God seriously. When the JESUS film was shown in my town, I watched it all four nights. I was so moved when Jesus washed His disciples’ feet and told them to go and do this with others. Since watching the JESUS film, I am training the young people in carpentry with love and respect, like Jesus showed his disciples. I want to live as Jesus lived. I attend church regularly and want to lead the people I work with to Jesus.”
Pray for Peter to be an example of Christ to others by the way he lives.
“I forgot the blessing of Jesus and His love and kindness,” said 35-year-old Faluk in Pakistan. “Sometimes we fall away from Jesus and try to control our lives. I fell away from Jesus when life was very difficult. I fell back into temptation. When I saw the JESUS film, I was reminded when Jesus was at His lowest, in pain and suffering, He prayed to his Father in heaven for help. Now I feel peace in my life because I have given all my burdens to Jesus who cares for me.”
Praise the Lord Faluk now has peace in his life.
“I recently lost my husband and felt lonely and sad,” said Julia in Peru. “By watching the JESUS film, I now understand Jesus loves me and died on the cross for me. I have accepted Christ as my personal Savior and want to follow Him for the rest of my life. I now feel very happy because I am no longer alone. God is with me.”
Praise the Lord Julia now has Christ living in her and is no longer alone.
