"Our father abandoned us when we were young," shared Lupita in Ecuador. "So I married the first man who proposed. We had two children, but he treated me poorly, physically and psychologically. One day, a neighbor invited me to church. She came to know Christ through the JESUS Film. That day, what the pastor said convinced me I needed God in my heart. Now, my husband and children attend church with me each week. God is wonderful!"
"I was rejected by my husband," said Reina in Cuba. "I was a sad woman – frustrated and hopeless. I felt I was good for nothing. I was invited to the JESUS Film show. After seeing the pain Christ suffered for me, I cried and received Him as my Savior. Now I am happy knowing I am not alone. I have been born anew! Praise God for the healed hurts and the value Reina has found in Christ!
"The church in Dulag had closed back in 2009 for many reasons," said a Filipino team member. "Yet through the JESUS Film ministry, it is being rekindled back to life. This church now makes an impact in the community bringing hopethrough medical missions, and other compassionate ministries." Pray for this church to continue to be a place of hope and help for the lost!
"All my dreams disappeared when that happened. The loss of my father left a great void in my heart. The void in my heart has been filled by Jesus. I have hope. I am going to Bible studies and His Word has changed my life! I thank God for all He is doing in me. My dream now is to be a nurse and go to other countries to help people. I am waiting on God to fulfill my dreams."
"Flames of fire were leaping out at me," said Eder in Peru. "My life before that dream had been very sad. I had many problems, but no one knew I was trapped in a world of suffering by the devil. I took refuge in alcohol and was blinded by false hope. One miraculous day, Jesus revealed to me through a dream of fire that if the world ended, I would not be ready. Through this dream, I realized I was not living right and made a decision to change. When I was reunited with my family, I was invited to church and accepted Jesus as my Savior the very first day I went. Now the pastor is helping me in my new life and I am very thankful."
"I was sick when I came tonight,"Founza shared in Burkina Faso. "My knees were sore, and it was a struggle to walk. During the prayer tonight, it is like I felt someone pull my feet. In the same instant, the pain disappeared from my knees! I believe it was Jesus who did this, so I did not hesitate to confess my faith and hopein Him." Pray Founza's testimony may be a strong witness to her friends.
"Everything I believed in was based on what I could see and touch," shared an 82-year-old woman in Cuba. "My granddaughter invited me to see the JESUS Film, and because I love seeing movies, I went. When I arrived, the first thing I noticed was the respect the team gave all the viewers. After the film, I felt something strange—a great emptiness inside. I realized this emptiness could only be filled by God, so I accepted Christ as my Savior." Praise God for reaching this grandmother through her granddaughter.
"I never thought it necessary to make a serious commitment to God," shared a viewer in Nicaragua. "This all changed when I was invited by a friend to see Magdalena(the JESUS Film for women). I decided to accept Christ that night, and my life has changed." Pray for this viewer to grow deeper in her life with Christ.
