“I tried every vice and pleasure I could think of, but nothing truly satisfied. I wanted to be different but I couldn’t. People repeatedly talked to me about Christ, but I didn’t want to listen. I didn’t know these people were praying for me. One day, I listened to what the JESUS Film team was saying about the gospel. One of the pastors invited me to see the JESUS film. While watching it, I felt something strange happening inside me for the first time. I could not resist the force inside me that told me to accept Christ as my Savior. Thanks to Jesus, I am a new man.” – Ricardo, 38-years-old

September 8 - 14

Mozambique

Prayer Points:
  • Pray for the JESUS Film teams as they travel by foot to many remote villages.
  • People continue to be traumatized by the 30-year civil war, violence and natural disasters. Pray for them as they seek God during these difficult times.
  • Unreached people groups are more concentrated in Mozambique than anywhere else in southern Africa. Pray for teams to reach these people groups with the gospel and the JESUS film.

Benduru's testimony: “My life was without hope and full of sin. I drank until I did not know what was happening around me. I am a farmer. Whenever I received money from my crops, I would spend it on alcohol and other women. My wife and children suffered, not having enough money for food, clothing, and schooling. When the JESUS film came to my village, I watched the life of Christ and the sacrifice Christ made for me. I asked Jesus to forgive my sins. He completely changed me. He is now the Lord of my life.

September 15 - 21

Uruguay

  • Pray for six new areas where the JESUS Film teams will be showing the film to reach new people for Christ.
  • The last 20 years have seen significant growth in the number of people seeking God in a previously resistant environment. Pray for the teams as they reach the lost.
  • Praise God that 82% of people who made decisions for Christ in the last year are attending discipleship classes.

Petril's testimony  -  “I have been addicted to drugs since I was 12-years-old. I had a difficult childhood since I was raised by my father, who was an alcoholic. Recently the JESUS film was shown in my town. After watching the film, I, along with my wife and children, asked Jesus to forgive our sins. Jesus released me from the drugs I have taken most of my life. We have opened our home to a Preaching Point and discipleship classes. We are learning more about God and our new faith in Him.”

September 22 - 30

Uganda

Prayer Points:
  • Uganda JESUS Film teams request prayer for success in their plans to disciple many people and train more pastors to lead the new Preaching Points.
  • The majority of Ugandans consider themselves Christians. However, most do not have a personal relationship with Christ. Pray for the teams as they share Christ through the JESUS film.
  • Pray for the country as it recovers from the political devastation of the past few decades when thousands of people lost their lives.

Uganda team #1’s report: “We showed the JESUS film at an existing church for five days. As a result, 22 people came to Christ and became members. We thank God because the film brought a revival to our church! Those who had not come to church for many months have started coming back.”
