Your prayers help care for widows…
“My husband died from Ebola,” said Jartu in Sierra Leone. “Since his death, I have been struggling to meet my daily needs. My neighbor invited me to watch the JESUS film. In the film, I saw how Jesus loves everyone. He is compassionate and cares for everyone’s needs. My neighbor has been Christ’s hands and feet to me, helping me in my time of need, even though I was from a radical religious group. After watching the JESUS film every night it was shown in my village, I knew I wanted to accept Jesus into my heart. I am attending church and discipleship classes to learn more about God.”
Praise the Lord for Jartu’s decision to live for Christ the rest of her life.
“I have many problems in my home,” said Shakuntala, a widow in India. “I have two sons and a daughter. One of my sons died, and his wife now lives with me. My daughter also is a widow and lives with me, along with her four children. The JESUS Film team came to our home to show the JESUS film. We were happy to see the life of Christ and how He loves us. I have given my life to Christ and am attending discipleship classes. My whole family now attends church together.”
Praise God for this family who is now following Christ together.
“I have done many jobs since my husband died four years ago,” said 49-year-old Boke in Tanzania. “It has been very difficult for me to provide food and daily needs for my children since my husband’s death. He was the breadwinner in our family. I have not been trained for a job. In the JESUS film, I saw the life of Christ and how He cared for people, even widows. I asked Jesus into my heart and want to live for Him.”
Pray for Boke to find a job where she can provide for the daily needs of her family.
- Pray for the JESUS Film teams to stay healthy as they share the JESUS film with communities near and far.
