"And let us not grow weary of doing good,
for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
Galatians 6:9 (ESV)
"Wherever Jesus has been proclaimed, we see
Lives change for the good, Nations change for the better,
Thieves become honest, Alcoholics become sober,
Hateful individuals become channels of love,
Unjust persons embrace justice." — Josh McDowell, Evangelist
This month, we are celebrating the beautiful ripple effect that occurs when the gospel takes root. Will you join us in praying as 847 JESUS Film teams create Kingdom ripples around the world?

- Pray for a rapid decline in violence and the alarmingly high murder rate.
July 8 - 14
- The 17 teams request prayer for God to take care of them as they evangelize, for traveling in Argentina is very dangerous.

- Teams report that God is working wonders through the film in low-income areas, the rural countryside, urban cities, mountainous areas, and the coast. Praise God!
July 15 - 21
- Zimbabwe has long-faced a turbulent economy, with many of its citizens struggling with unemployment. Pray for these discouraged people to discover the hope found in our Savior.

- Praise: last year, teams in Kenya made an average of 655 evangelistic contacts each month!
