"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it."
1 Corinthians 12:27
Dear Friends & Partners,
“The Great Commission is too big for anyone to accomplish alone
& too important not to try to do together.”
As you may know, JESUS Film Harvest Partners' vision is to give every person an opportunity to hear about Jesus. The task before us is huge.
The part of JESUS Film teams around the world is to proclaim the Good News, disciple new believers, and raise up leaders to continue The Great Commission in their communities. These new leaders — those who were once lost — are equipped by teams to obediently follow the Lord and seek out other lost souls.
Your part as a Harvest Partner is to encourage, support, and sustain these teams as they bring in the eternal harvest. You are intricately important to the whole process!
In April, a man named Peter received Christ on the first day of the JESUS film showing in his Kenyan village. When Peter saw the miracles performed by Jesus, he stood up, came forward, and told the team, “I want to get saved now.” They gathered around him and prayed with him as he confessed his sins, repented, and asked Jesus to come into his heart.
The second day, Peter came back to the showing and said he wanted to know more about Jesus. On the third day, the team did discipleship follow-up and Peter showed interest in studying the Word even more!
Peter’s willingness to hear and accept the Lord’s calling will be a blessing to those around him who still need to hear the incredible news of the gospel.
Whether you are in East Africa or North America, what following the Great Commission looks like is often just as diverse as the people of God’s church!
By diligently committing ourselves to even the smallest tasks at our places of home and work, by being salt and light to others, we can partner with the global Church. Alone, we can do little. Together, we can go into each corner of every country, touching the lives of those who have never heard the name of Jesus.
We have a huge and important task ahead of us. Let's accomplish it together.
What part will you play?
You are loved.
