Your prayers help give hope to the suicidal…
“My first wife died from a mysterious illness,” said Aifa, a farmer in Benin. “Later, I married my second wife, who had a heart attack at a family member’s funeral. If I hadn’t been surrounded by family and friends, I would have committed suicide that day. Everyone believed I was a victim of sorcery, so I sought protection with a fetish. I married my third wife, who also died from a mysterious illness. While discouraged and inconsolable, I watched the JESUS film. I saw Jesus chasing away evil spirits, healing the sick, and reviving the dead! I knew He was all-powerful. I asked Christ into my heart and now am protected by Him.”
Pray for Aifa to grow in his new faith in Christ and share this new faith with others in his village.
“I lived a life of corruption since I was 14-years-old,” said Patricia in the Dominican Republic. “I was an alcoholic and used drugs. Recently, I felt so bad, I wanted to die. My family and friends did not trust me. I was invited to watch the JESUS film. After watching the life of Christ, I accepted Jesus into my heart and life. Jesus is changing my life and my family and friends know it.”
Pray for Patricia as she is a witness to her family and friends of her new life in Christ.
“I spent my life with bad friends in my village,” said a young person in a South Asian country. “Everyone in my village knew to stay away from me. I was tired of my life and did not want to live anymore. When the JESUS film was shown in my village, I did not want to watch it. The team leader talked with me about Jesus and His love for me, and I wanted to know more about Him. Up to this point, no one loved me. Seeing the life of Christ made me realize how much He loved me and even died for my sins. I gave my heart and life to Jesus and want to serve Him the rest of my life.”
Pray for this young person as he shares his new faith in Christ with his friends and family.
