"They had two sets of twins in the span of only two years!" said a pastor of a young couple in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. "This father was burdened by the responsibility of feeding and caring for his growing family. Without a job, he was losing hope and control. After attending the JESUS Film presentation, he asked the team to pray for him. Three days later, he got a job in the mining company in his area. Praise the Lord!"
"I was concerned about money," said a viewer in Pakistan. "I used to live a life of sin and wasn't even concerned about myself and my family—only for the money I could earn by doing bad things. One evening, the JESUS Film team came to my village and I was being pulled very strongly to watch the film, so I did. I could see Jesus did not hate sinners, but loved them and even ate with them. Watching that scene, I felt I had been living in darkness, but Jesus was bringing me into the light. When I confessed my sins to Him, He forgave me and now I want to be baptized. Now I tell Jesus, through your grace, Lord, I give you my hands to work for you, my feet to follow you, my tongue to speak your words, my mind to think of you, and above all, I give you my heart to live in."
"I felt in my heart there was something missing," said a man in Mexico. "Even though my parents taught me to work hard and live a good moral life, I lacked something. One day on my way home from work I went through the park as usual. On this day, a crowd was listening to a man tell a story using a colorful cube with pictures on it. As he explained how God loved us by sending Jesus to die in our place, I felt a great need to know God. When an invitation was given, I accepted the Lord Jesus as my Savior and have been attempting to learn more about Him every week."
"I want to tell you how marvelous and good God is!" proclaims a pastor in Uruguay, South America. "God has been faithful! In only one and a half years, we are about to build our own sanctuary. We have a group of enthusiastic children eager to learn. Our attendance is good, and we have a radio program. The JESUS Film, which we were able to show in public places, has had a huge impact on our growing congregation. Thank you for providing us with these possibilities."
"Please pray for us brothers and sisters, that we might have a pure heart and wisdom to continue sharing the Gospel," said the leader in the Philippines. "Our community welcomed what we had to share about the Word of God. We were grateful to the village leader for allowing us to present the JESUS Film, along with preaching and the distribution of food. It was evident during the movie, that people of all ages were touched by seeing the pain Jesus endured. A group of us meets in a house at this time. It is rather crowded, but we are still joyful."
