Your prayers help care for widows…
“I killed my husband because he took a second wife,” said Kouyi in Togo. “I went to a witch doctor for help, thinking I could take my husband’s inheritance from his second wife. When my children learned I killed their father, they took all of my belongings, leaving me nothing. When the JESUS film was shown in my village, I realized I had sinned by killing my husband because of jealousy and money. God has now forgiven me of this grave sin. I want to serve Him the rest of my life.” The JESUS Film team continues to teach Kouyi God’s Word and she will be baptized soon.
Pray for Kouyi as she grows in her faith and is a witness to her family of a changed life.
“My daughter was very sick with a fever,” said a 30-year-old widow in a South Asian country. “I did not have money for her treatment. While watching the JESUS film, I saw Jesus healing many people. I believed Jesus could heal my daughter. After talking with me about Jesus’ miracles, the JESUS Film team prayed for my daughter’s healing. The next day her fever was gone and she was healed!”
Praise the Lord for the healing of this widow’s daughter!
“As we travel from village to village, it is very cold,” said a JESUS Film team member in Nepal. “We have been visiting villages high in the mountains where the snow is falling. In one village where we showed the film, we stayed with a widow. She did not have enough blankets and beds for each of us. Upon returning home, we mentioned this widow’s need in our church. Blankets were gathered and the youth returned to share these blankets with this widow. The youth also repaired her home. She was very happy with the kindness shown to her. She has now accepted Christ into her life and is attending church and discipleship classes.”
Pray for this widow as she grows in her faith with God.
