JESUS Film Updates

People's lives are being changed because of JESUS:

2011-10-05

"I lived a terrible life," said Adéotti in Benin. "I grew with no religious values. My father died when I was 17. My mother had no resources. As the man of the house, I needed to earn money. I began to sell myself to men. I made enough money for our living expenses and my studies. Today, I am a new man; I met the Lord through the JESUS Film! I was convicted of my sins; I confessed, and Jesus forgave me. I am a member in the new church planted in my community. I participate in all the church activities. Daily, the Lord blesses me materially and spiritually."

Praise God for convicting us of our sins and providing forgiveness.

"It was a beautiful event to hear the Word of God," said Nemecio in Bolivia. "My entire family became believers in Christ. We are thankful the Lord has touched our hearts while we are still young and able to serve Him."

Pray for Nemecio and his family as they live out their faith in service to Christ.

"I was afraid to accept Jesus," said the viewer in Guatemala. "While visiting my aunt, I watched the JESUS Film. I liked the film very much but was afraid to follow Jesus. I called Brother Manuel to ask some questions. Two days later, I accepted Jesus as my Lord. Brother Manuel continues to teach me about Christ."

Praise God for the willing heart of Brother Manuel to disciple this new believer.

"Auxiliadora had two tumors on her ovaries," said the team member in Nicaragua. "She was very sick as she watched the JESUS Film. She made a decision to trust in Christ after the film. A few days later, God did a miracle by completely healing her. The two tumors disappeared altogether. She is so thankful wanting to learn more about God and His will in her life."

Praise God for touching Auxiliadora's heart with His love and healing her body.

"The rain is not stopping us," said the team member in Indonesia. "Even though it is the rainy season, we are continuing to show the JESUS Film. Several people have become believers in Christ and are preparing to be baptized."

Praise God for the new believers in Indonesia!

"I saw God's Word in the pictures," said 17 year-old Sara in Pakistan. "The JESUS Film Harvest Partners team member explained God's love to me using the EvangeCube. The picture which made the greatest impact was the person walking in darkness. I could relate to this picture. He told me how Jesus is the light and without Him we wander in darkness. I prayed to God asking forgiveness of my sins. The Lord answered my prayers and I have great joy in my heart. I am grateful to the JESUS Film team for using the EvangeCube to change my life."

Pray for Sara as she grows in her walk as a new believer in Christ.

"I saw the light tonight," said Ernest in Nigeria. "I was involved in a belief system which closed my eyes to Jesus as the Son of God. Now, I know Jesus is the Savior and not just a prophet. He cleansed me from my sins; through His blood, I am forgiven! Many of us are trapped in certain religious beliefs because of family history. Please join with me in prayer against possible persecution from my extended family. I know they will be out for me as soon as they know I am a follower of Christ and attending church. They may want to kill me fearing I will convince the entire family to follow Jesus. I know God will answer your prayers for protection and provision. I desire to be a strong believer living and working for the Lord."

Please join with Ernest in pray for God's protection and strength.

"She met Jesus at age five," said the team member in Cuba. "Iraida lived in the house next to the JESUS Film location. As she watched the film, she suffered as Christ suffered. At the end of the show, she prayed the prayer of salvation. She was the only one that day who became a follower of Christ."

Pray for Iraida as she grows up as a follower of the Lord.

"Luciano and Graciela know the Savior," said the team member in Brazil. "Over 100 children watched the JESUS Film at the civic center. Following the showing, Luciano and Graciela stayed to meet Jesus. Their parents now hold Bible studies in their home."

"The girl was indifferent," said the team member in Mexico. "Even though we held services in Alejandra's home, the teenage girl was not interested in God. One day following our sharing of the Word of God, Alejandra approached us expressing her desire to give her life to the Lord."

Praise the Lord for His patience and persistence with us!

"All in attendance accepted Jesus," said Medany in the Philippines. "Mr. J was our contact person in the community. He set up chairs and invited his neighbors to attend the film presentation. After the film, we shared the gospel with the people and all 52 became followers of Christ. We are working with a mother church to set up a worship center in the area. Praise God for His abiding presence."

Pray for the believers in the Philippines as their new church offers hope to the community.

"Many struggle to follow Christ," said the team member in India. "Due to persecution and violence many in our area struggle to serve the Lord. They leave their homes for the sake of their lives. The families are depressed and oppressed. This is how we found the family of Saheb's. We visited with them to encourage their faith. As a result, they recommitted their lives to Christ's service."

Pray for believers to remain strong in their faith in the face of persecution.

God answers prayer."

Praise God for safely returning Elizabeth's daughter and for the faith of the family.

"I do not regret it," said 43 year old Doonte in Burkina Faso. "I am a widow and suffer in poverty. I was sad in body and soul not knowing who to trust. I heard my children talking about the JESUS Film; I went to see it. I have no regrets because I have peace in my heart now. Jesus shares my burdens. I am free in His salvation. I trust Him and know He will never leave me. Pray for my new life in Jesus."

Pray for Doonte as she still struggles with physical needs, for her faith, hope, and knowledge of Christ to grow stronger.

"The girl fell from her father's arms," said the team member in the Philippines. "As we prepared to show the JESUS Film, a two-year old slipped from her father's arms. She was unconscious and her skin turned dark. Her mother was crying and the people were worried about the condition of the child. We gathered around the girl and lifted the small body to God. As the prayers ended with ‘amen', the girl screamed a cry and her color returned to normal. God touched the child! The family attends Bible studies and is active in the church."

Praise God for His healing power!

"My friends were my life," said 20 year-old Nadia in Pakistan. "One day, I saw people gathering in a group. I joined in to see what was happening. A JESUS Film Harvest Partners team member was using an EvangeCube to explain the Word of God. The team member told many things about Jesus – His kindness and the way He takes care of His people and His healing power for the sick and blind. The team member told us to read the Work of God. When he talked about Jesus, I felt peace in my heart. I started to read the Bible daily. I am blessed by Christ and feel I have received eyes from Jesus like a blind man."

Praise God for prompting our heart's with His words.

"The people are resistant," said the team member in Liberia. "We worked many months in this area dominated by a strong religious group. The people argue that God would not allow His son to suffer in such a way. We spent weeks praying and fasting. At one showing, Mr. Lusane, a school teacher, became a believer in Christ. He said, ‘From what I have seen, this man has powers from God.' Mr. Lusane is leading a Bible study for his family and other new believers."

Pray for the people set in deep religious tradition to have ears to hear and eyes to see the truth of Christ's sacrifice and God's love.

"I was suffering from depression," said Luisa in the Dominican Republic. "I am 39 years old and could not sleep. Sometimes, I wanted to die and thought of killing myself. Everything changed the night I received Jesus. I am not the same and feel peace in my heart. I started to go to church and I am preparing to be baptized. My relationship with my family has improved."

Praise God for freeing Luisa from depression.

"The greatest revolutionary of all time changed me," said 30 year-old José (not his real name) in Colombia. "I work in a dangerous area and have an opportunity to meet many people. My heart's desire is to reach the most feared people in the red-light zone. These people are known as ‘guerillas'. One day, I had a chance to meet one of them and we began a friendship. In my desire to know more about his spiritual needs, I began to talk about the greatest revolutionary in all human history who I personally know and who changes the hearts of men, Jesus our Lord. For security reasons, I can't tell you anymore details. I want to say Christ changed my life and gave me the opportunity to love the lost of which I was the first. Blessings on my brothers from the JESUS Film Harvest Partners ministry."

Pray for José to be an effective witness for Christ in this dangerous area.

On the other hand, in many places, we are working and reaching the people in the midst of persecution. We always need your prayer support. The harvest is truly plentiful, but and the laborers are few. We know this is true."

Pray for the laborers in India to continue to find favor with local leaders.

"The chief stopped us from showing the JESUS Film," said the team member in India. "The people listened as we shared the Word of God. We told how Jesus suffered and died for us. We explained that whoever believes in Him will be saved from sins by His blood. One man stood up and said he wanted to become a follower of Christ and asked us to show the JESUS Film. The village chief stopped us and warned that if we visited the place again we would be arrested by the police."

Pray for the hunger for God to continue to grow in the hearts of these villagers and for the safety of the JESUS Film teams.

Praise God for the work He has done in the life of Heber.

"Many feared persecution," said the team member in Liberia. "The people of this area profess to other religious beliefs, so seeing the JESUS Film greatly impacted their lives.

I accepted the Lord Jesus in my heart. The Lord forgave me and saved me. I destroyed all the shrines and fetishes. I'm not afraid of fetishes anymore because they are defeated in Jesus' name.

"I prayed for Jesus to make me humble," said 40 year old Ghorre in Pakistan. "I ignored other people's feelings and would easily fight with others even over little things. My family members were fed up with me. One day, the JESUS Film came to our village. I thought the film was a joke. As I watched, I was impressed by the meekness of Jesus. He bears all sin even of the people who made Him suffer. In that instant, I prayed for Jesus to make me humble that I might not fight with others. Now when I get angry, I remember the JESUS Film and it helps me to calm down as I remember the behavior of Jesus with others.  I am thankful to God who granted me an opportunity to change myself through the JESUS Film."

Praise God for the new heart and attitude of Ghorre.

When I saw my friends with their parents, it made me miss my parents more. I cried a lot and was filled with sadness.

He said Jesus knows when we are happy and when we are sad. Jesus is always with us. Jesus said ‘I am with you always even into the end of the world.' Hearing this I realized I am not alone when Jesus is with me. Now whenever I miss my parents, I pray to Jesus and I find the same love from Him that my parents had for me.

Jesus asked him, 'What do you want me to do for you?' 'I want to see,' he answered. 'Receive your vision,' said the Lord and the blind man was able to see. In this moment, I put my faith in Jesus Christ. He healed me from my bleeding and I received Him as my Lord and Savior. Now I meet with others to advance my knowledge of the Lord and of His Word."

Praise God for His healing power in Eveling’s body and life.

“They fight off the mosquitoes and adore their Lord,” said the team member in Colombia. “Reaching one village which we had never visited before started with a 12-hour journey by river boat followed by an hour walk. The area was challenging because of security issues and hordes of mosquitoes making it difficult to do any work. Colombia is ripe for harvest and the work of the Lord won’t be stopped. During the days, we visited with families and held workshops, and twice a week, we showed the JESUS Film. As a result, 25 people became new believers in Christ and started meeting as a church. Though the people constantly fight away mosquitoes, nothing keeps them from meeting together and receiving the Word of the Lord. Their enthusiasm is incredible and their church services last more than two hours!”

“After seeing Jesus heal demon-possessed people, she requested prayer,” said the team member in Malawi. “We thank God for how He helped Mrs. Jenala who was demon-possessed. She asked Jesus to heal her and now she is set free. After the villagers witnessed her freedom from demon possession with their own eyes, they praised the Lord and many gave their lives to Jesus. Others brought their children to receive prayer. We thank God for what He has done. A small church has been planted in this village. We believe and are praying for this new branch to grow!”
 
            Pray for the growth of this church as a place for new believers to grow in their walk with Christ.
 
 
“The council had given instructions to stop us from showing the JESUS Film at all cost - even if it meant putting us in jail,” said the team member in the Philippines. “We were frustrated because we were planning to go to a certain village to show the JESUS Film. The vehicle was packed and ready to go but after searching several locations for the keys, we could not find them. Finally, we sent a message to the pastor to let him know of our troubles and made arrangements to go the next day. When we arrived at the village, the pastor told us the village council had decided not to allow us to show the film the night before and authorities had been instructed to prevent the showing, even if they had to put us in jail. We were able to show the JESUS Film that night in a home. We praise God for His protection by hiding the keys from our eyes. When we returned home, we found the keys in a coffee mug which we had previously checked. God indeed works in mysterious ways.”
           
            Praise God for His protection when we are unaware danger is near.
  
 
“They rushed toward us with the child and asked for prayer,” said a team member from India. “Ten year old Aswani was suffering from severe stomach pains. Her parents came to us and asked us to pray. When we saw the faith of the parents, we prayed for the child and her stomach pain disappeared.”
 
            Praise God for healing Aswani!

“My life was covered in darkness and I was about to kill myself to get rid of all the bad things,” said James in Pakistan. “Though I was born in a Christian family, I used alcohol and drugs and did not know Christ. When the film started, I saw Jesus perform many amazing miracles and it made me feel good. Then the soldiers began to beat Jesus and crucify Him. He said on the cross, ‘Father, forgive them, they do not know what they are doing.’ His words left a beautiful impression upon my life. During the film, Jesus also said, ‘Repent and your sins will be washed away.’ That night, I accepted Jesus and am now living with Him in my heart. I stopped using alcohol and drugs and am now a proud son of the living God through Jesus’ sacrifice.”

     Praise God for taking James from the darkness to the light of Christ.

“I was part of a gang,” said 15 year old Catherine in Peru. “My parents were distressed because of my actions. I never wanted to obey them and did bad things. Though I pretended to be happy, I was never at peace. I was so unhappy and had many problems. One day, a Christian friend invited me to see the JESUS Film. I thought it would be just like any other movie but I recognized that Jesus Christ died for me on the cross. I asked Him to be my personal Savior and now I have peace in my heart - thanks to God!

     Praise God for Catherine’s new life in Christ.

“The church was blessed with seven children making a decision of faith,” said a team member from the Dominican Republic. “We give thanks to our God for each one of the Jesus Film showings this month.  We have seen how the church was blessed and how God touched the young people in a very special way.”

    Pray for these children as they grow in their lives with Christ.

“We felt she was possessed by a demon,” said the team member from Bangladesh. At the JESUS Film showing Robin shared, “My wife is in serious trouble. She can't sleep and sometimes wakes up screaming, or making grumbling sounds. Then she starts trembling and crying. We took her to the village doctors and local charmers, but it is getting worse day by day. I saw Jesus cure many people in the film. I believe He is God and can do everything in answer to prayer. Please pray for my wife that she will be cured.” The team leader said, “We laid hands on her and started praying for her healing. We felt she was possessed by a demon and commanded the demon to leave Robin’s wife in the mighty name of Jesus. Robin testifies, "I fully believe that Jesus has cured my wife completely. Jesus is God indeed!”

Praise God for miraculous healing!

“Samwel and John were very young but had a problem with alcohol,” said the team member from Kenya. “They victoriously gave their lives to Christ and publicly testified to burying their old way of life and starting anew.

“I am ashamed and hurt to tell all that I have done with my life,” said Marco from Ecuador. “For many years, I was in bad relationships with women, selling myself for money. I immediately spent all I earned on vices such as alcohol, drugs, and gambling. I tried to change my life by my own efforts. I married and had two children, but it wasn’t long before I was doing the same old things and deceiving my family. One day, I watched the JESUS Film in my neighborhood. At the end of the show, I wanted to respond to the call but didn’t move. I returned home thinking about what I had seen. Desperate, I set aside my shame and contacted the brothers from the church that showed the film. They prayed for me and helped me to grow spiritually. For the past four years, I have faithfully attended the house of the Lord.”

Praise God for Marco’s new life in service to Christ

“Most of my people are of another faith and go to the temple every Saturday to pay homage to god,” shares Khaw in Myanmar. “I was not satisfied with my life. One day, I was invited to watch the JESUS Film. I asked the film worker about the life of Christ. He explained the Bible to me and I accepted Christ as my Savior. I have found peace and have joined a fellowship group. I got a Burmese Bible and study it daily. I am the only carpenter in my village and am working to build a church.”

Pray for Khaw as he grows in his new faith and builds a church that others may hear the good news.

“The diagnosis showed that she was HIV positive” said the woman from the remote village in Kenya. After the JESUS Film showing, the woman came forward to testify that she had ruined her life with promiscuity. She was never concerned about the health of the men she dated until she got sick. The test performed by the doctor confirmed she was HIV positive. The results devastated her and she saw no hope for living. During the show, she felt the urge to accept Christ in her life. The JESUS Film team reports, she now meets with others in the village who are HIV positive and she is attending membership classes to join the church.

Please pray for this woman who had the courage to testify to the sin in her life and turn from sin toward the saving grace of Christ.

“…We saw Him (Jesus) in person,” said Poonam and his sister Jashwanti. The JESUS Film was presented in a small Caribbean community in Suriname. After the showing, a young man named Poonam and his sister Jashwanti went to the altar to accept Jesus as their Savior. They attended the showing because they heard about Jesus and wanted to see Him. Poonam and Jashwanti said that, while they were praying at the altar, they both saw Jesus in front of them. They said, “We wanted to see Him in the film, but we saw Him (Jesus) in person.”

Please pray for Poonam and Jashwanti that they will grow spiritually strong and that God will give them wisdom in sharing their newfound faith.

“She stood up and was able to walk,” said the team member. No church existed in the small Panama community where the JESUS Film was presented. A young girl, Lisseth, was healed that day. The team member said, “Lisseth was confined to her bed for three months with intense pain. This day they brought her in a wheel chair (to the film showing) and she stood up and was able to walk. Now, Lisseth’s home is used for a weekly prayer meeting. God is doing marvelous things and the people are deepening their commitments with the Lord.”

Praise God that the miracle of healing is still evident in the souls and bodies of His people.

“The love of God is lived out, not only preached,” said a man in Nicaragua. “Today I am thankful for the presence of our church. It brings a love to the community I have not seen before.

Some of these young men are preparing to attend Bible College.”

Please remember these young men in your prayers.


“Sardar from Pakistan shares “I was completely involved in evil practices. I knew many magic spells and earned a living performing black magic. When I learned of the JESUS Film showing, I went to stop it using my spells. I tried for an hour but my magic failed so I watched the film. Seeing the miracles and the crucifixion shook me as I watched. I went to a JESUS Film team member and surrendered my ornaments and other instruments of magic. Then I prayed to receive Christ as my Savior. I praise God for a great blessing through the JESUS Film.”

Pray for those entangled in the grip of black magic.


“At the end of the film I was the first to respond to the call of the pastor where I gave my life without reserve to the Lord. Immediately I received extraordinary joy and also an assurance,” shares Nina from Africa. “My coming to the JESUS Film showing was truly accidental. I felt alone because of a situation I experienced with my husband. The situation can be explained by the crisis in our family that we experienced after our marriage. I felt truly alone and I was walking to the area where the film was being shown. First, I was welcomed by the warmth and the joy that animated the film. Secondly, I had a sense of sharing and a sense of confidence that followed. I am thankful for the joy I received.”

Pray for Nina as she grows in her walk with Christ and faces difficulties in her marriage.

A group gathered to pray for the woman and was told a few days later the woman was healed - what a miracle!”

Praise God for answering the prayers of this woman in Sri Lanka.


Isidora from Nicaragua shares, “When I saw the JESUS Film for the first time, I was able to see how our Lord Jesus Christ suffered on the cross of Calvary for our sake. It was in this way that the movie impacted my life so much and I am sure he died for my sins on the cross. Today, I am a free person in Jesus Christ because He saved my life, taking me out of the miry clay. I tell others that have not seen the JESUS Film that they need to see it since God talks through this film.”

Pray for the new believers in Nicaragua.

“Two months ago the church was about to be shut down," reported as team member in Guatemala. ”But I took on the task of restoring it.

Eight people who accepted Jesus from the JESUS Film are currently being discipled so they will stay and grow with us. As of right now, the church has an active membership of 12 people."

Pray for the efforts of this new leader and the continued strengthening of the new mission church.

After her miraculous healing, her doctor released her. Esther’s faith in Christ has strengthened and today she is a faithful Christian serving the Lord and testifying to the miracle God did in her life, both salvation and physical healing.”

“It was raining somewhat that afternoon, but God was on the move,” recalled a team member in Suriname.” As we were showing the JESUS Film, an intoxicated man came in and sat very calmly. At the end of the film, he came up for prayer and people were laughing at him. He repeated the sinner’s prayer and shook our hands. It is amazing how each Sunday he comes to church and a change is still seen in him. God’s Holy Spirit is moving in an amazing way that we can’t understand at times.”

Pray for the team in Suriname as they continue to minister through the JESUS Film.


“I was a magic man, I used to guess the future of people and sometimes I was lying,” confessed Albertina in Mozambique. “One day a friend of mine invited me to watch the JESUS Film. She invited me from the first day until the last day of the showings. On the second day, I asked Jesus into my heart and accepted him as my Lord and Savior. I have decided to follow Jesus for the rest of my life. I thank Jesus for showing me the right way. I asked the team to pray for me and the rest of my family because they are still living in the darkness.”

Pray for Albertina as he finds new direction in his life through Christ.


“I went many places seeking help for my addiction. I was very upset,” shared Badley in India. “I was badly addicted to intoxicants.

The Lord did save me and after watching the film, my mind was never moved to intoxication and I became well. My whole family’s life was changed.”

Praise the Lord for what he has done to make this family new!

They had heard of some people who would be coming to show the film. So the village elder, James, who was sick, asked his guards to stop us so we could show the film in his compound. When we arrived at his home, we explained to him everything about Jesus. That night James gave his life to Jesus. On our way back we were told that he died two days after he had received Jesus as his personal Savior. “

     Praise God for the redemption of James before his death.

"The Nueva Vida Church has been praying for the town of Bonilla for a long time," reported a team member in Uruguay. "This month a lay pastor, Roberto, and a group of leaders from the church were able to go there. They showed the JESUS Film with complete success. More than six families regularly attend this new mission church.  God is doing great miracles there. Gabriela is one of those miracles of God.

“We picked up a lady on the road who was ill and on her way to a medical clinic,” shared a team member in Cuba. “When we recently went to show the film we began to share the plan of salvation with her, including the fact that God could save her soul and heal her body.  We prayed for her to be saved and prayed for healing. She was touched by what she heard and accepted the Lord. He is faithful to His children. She was saved and healed when we dropped her off. We give God thanks for the opportunity to carry the good news of salvation to all people who are without God and without hope. Glory to God!”

“The priest expressed how much he was impressed by the JESUS Film,” testified a team member in Nepal. “There were two hundred people watching the JESUS Film at the showing in this town. The next day, after the film, we went to the house of the priest for the follow-up program and explained to him in detail about Jesus. He is now much more positive towards the Gospel, though he has not yet given his life to Christ.  However, one of his houses is being used for fellowship!”

     Pray that this priest will accept Jesus Christ as his Savior.

"When we saw him come we were sure he was up to something," reported a team member in Kenya. "Aghai was a drug trafficker and had once been in a gang. He couldn't do anything without taking drugs. This led to a breakup in his family.  The days he came to the showings were only to cause an interruption. Then one day he arrived and sat quietly and watched the film. He started crying and when an altar call was made, he accepted Christ into his life. He was very apologetic for all he had done and asked everyone to forgive him, most of all his wife and children. He said that his reputation had already been spoiled and he would try as much as he could to repair it with the help of Christ. He is now taking membership classes because he says he needs to be with people who will help him overcome his past deeds."

     Pray for Aghai as he continues with his new Christian walk and for his family to be reunited.


“Jesus is the true wine,”
testified a man in Pakistan. “My name is Iqbal. I am 29 yrs old. I used to drink alcohol almost everyday. Eventually, problems began with my lungs. My doctors told me to quit drinking alcohol, but this was almost impossible for me. One day, the JESUS Film team came to our village. I attended the show and when I saw Jesus give wine to the disciples and say, 'This is My blood which will be shed for your sins', and then give the bread and say,' This is My body which will be given for you', I felt that I shouldn’t drink alcohol. Instead I took the blood of Christ and the body of Christ. Miraculously, I left alcohol and become a believer.”

     Praise the Lord that Igbal has found his true sustenance in Christ.

"When I first saw the JESUS Film, I liked it. I felt I should watch it again. I was surprised to see the miracles performed by Jesus. I could see how important this film is to help us know how we should live and help others. While I was watching this film, I thought I should accept Jesus. Prior to watching the JESUS Film, I was a person who would not believe in the existence of God. When I saw this film my thoughts changed. It showed me that Jesus is alive and present on this earth and He has victory over death. I believe there is no salvation without Jesus.”

Pray for Tukaram as he continues to study the New Testament and grow in faith.

"I was someone without hope for my kids. I was walking with nowhere to go," shared Gabriela in Peru. "I am a single mother. My life was uncertain and I didn't know what to do with it. I had many problems with my family and other people. I want to say thanks to God because during Holy week He made it possible that I could see the JESUS Film. I gave my life to Him.

"I am grateful for Pastor Ruben and all the church people who lend a hand in my neighborhood," testified a believer from Argentina. "We are very pleased to have so much activity and support in the neighborhood. I opened my house for meetings. The JESUS Film team comes from far away to help reach new people in my neighborhood, bringing the Word so that many families might be changed. I know a lot of these people have great need. A lot of them are into drugs and crime but now I see them watching the JESUS Film. I know it won't be long before they are sitting in church. We will keep on preaching until all know the Lord."

Pray that this community continues to be receptive to the JESUS Film team.


"Today I am able to teach my son in the ways of the Lord, to help him in his belief, and to help him in Sunday school," acknowledged Fatima in Nicaragua. "I am 22 years old. I have a son that is two years old and I have attended the Church of the Nazarene in my neighborhood sometimes. I have not helped much to instruct my son in the way of the Lord, because I have not had the Lord in my heart. One night when they showed the JESUS Film, I was able to see everything that the Lord suffered and all that was done to Him. These images impacted me and helped me to accept Jesus as my Lord. I gave Him my heart and asked Him to forgive my sins. I thanked Him for the sacrifice He made on the cross for me."

Praise the Lord for Fatima and her faith and willingness to lead her son in faith too.

"To sum it up, our first Sunday in Rwanda was great!" shared a team member from the Youth In Mission (YIM) group. "Our evening plan to show the JESUS Film at another rural Nazarene church led us on a half-hour walk through the field back to the highway to catch a van to the church.

He testified that in one place he took us to, he had considered cancelling because he did not have a permit to work in the area, but in his heart he felt led to take us there. The pastor said God spoke directly to his heart about the spiritual need of that place. That night 33 people accepted Jesus, including the owners of the house. They have started a new mission church there. Now there are 45 people who gather."

“I was not living according to God’s plan,” testified a man in Guatemala. “I had been drinking the day I saw the JESUS Film. I wanted to go home, but I felt a very heavy burden upon my heart and sensed God calling me to stay and watch. When the pastor invited people forward to come to the Lord I said to myself, ‘I will not accept; they will not talk me into it.’ But before I knew it, I was standing in the front of the crowd giving my life to Christ. I never felt so much love in my life as I did that day. Praise the Lord, now I am saved!”

He also made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and now we are both receiving discipleship so that we can be baptized."

      Pray for the continued restoration of this family as they grow in Christ.

New equipment on its way to Bangladesh teams - Praise the Lord! Your prayers have been answered! A container of equipment that had been delayed has just cleared customs in Bangladesh and is now on its way to the JESUS Film teams. These teams are eager to replace their old 16 mm equipment. The new digital video projection equipment will significantly improve their already effective ability to share the Gospel and plant churches in Bangladesh. This picture shows the unloading of the container at the ministry office.

     Please pray that the 20 sets of equipment will be successfully distributed to the teams so they can continue to reach those like Baben…

"After the show, the area was almost empty. I saw a person sitting in a corner crying," reported a team member. "I went to him and touched his shoulder. The man named Baben said, 'I am a great sinner. I have committed such great sins that I think God will never forgive me.' I put my hand on Baben’s shoulder and said, 'Brother, if you understand that you are a sinner, I encourage you to have faith in Jesus.' I read 1 John 1:9 and explained to him about confession to Jesus. Baben prayed with us and told me that he would help in our preaching work. He also asked that we visit his family. We went and his wife accepted Jesus as the Lord and Savior like her husband. After this Baben took us to some of his relatives’ houses and gave testimony about Jesus to them. We carried on with our preaching in the area and have been able to start a New Mission Church."

At the end of the film, I was invited to accept Jesus into my heart and I said 'yes'. I now have a reason to live and enjoy my life! Jesus is my Savior and I am going to share Him with others.”

“Suddenly, while I was watching the JESUS Film, my eye was healed!” recalled a woman in India. “I was suffering blindness in one eye. I went to many doctors but they said they could not help me. I even went to a witch doctor who treated me with his medicine. However, nothing worked. I was very discouraged. One day, the JESUS Film team came to my village. I went to see the film. Others who were watching the film were all surprised when they saw that my eye had been healed because my past treatments had not worked. I am perfectly healed now! And all of my family has accepted Jesus!”

     Praise the Lord for His healing touch in this woman’s life and the lives of her family!


“When we began our evangelism, she was among the few who tried to criticize us,” testified a team member about a woman in Kenya. “This woman had suffered from severe stomach pain for years. For the three days [we were there], she snuck into the crowd each night to watch the film. After the last showing, she got up the courage to approach the team and speak with us about her life. That day she accepted Christ as her Savior. She now attends church services and has been healed from her stomach pains.”
         
     God is GOOD! Pray that God encourages His teams when they encounter criticism.


“I was looking for happiness but instead felt more and more guilty with no will to live,”
testified Mariano in Ecuador. “I started drinking in social settings, but little by little I became addicted to alcohol. I couldn’t see the damage it was doing to my family until the day my wife and daughters left me. Ten years passed and I couldn’t recover. I thought about committing suicide. One day a friend invited me to an event at his church and I decided to go. God spoke to me through the pastor; I knew this was what I was looking for. Since then, Jesus has healed my wounds and I have peace in my heart. Now my new wife and I are part of the evangelistic team and we help show the JESUS Film. Glory to God!"

     Praise the Lord for the way He transforms lives! Pray God’s blessing on this church’s ministry.

“I felt like I was carrying a very heavy burden,” testified Ramiro in Guatemala. “When the JESUS Film was shown in our community I did not want to go forward to accept Jesus. After going home, I regretted not accepting the Lord. I thought, ‘It’s too late now, the JESUS Film crew already called it a day.’ The more I thought about it, the heavier the burden got. The next day while coming home from work, I saw the pastor. I explained to him what I had been going through and he told me Christ was calling me. He said Christ loves me. When he prayed for me, I no longer felt the burden. I have now opened my heart to Jesus; I know that He has forgiven me and saved me.”

     Praise the One who takes our burdens and gives new life!


“When we returned, we found that a church building had been built,” testified a team member in Cuba. “Some time ago, a woman named Cara gave her life to the Lord after seeing the JESUS Film. We had shown the film near a small house with a big patio. After the film Cara asked us to pray that her husband, who was in prison, would also find Christ. Much later we returned to find a church standing where the patio once was. To our surprise, we learned that the new pastor was Cara’s husband! Many of the new church members were those who had come to Christ during the JESUS Film showing. We give thanks to God for what He is doing through our ministry.”
    
     Praise the Lord for the salvation of Cara and her husband and this new church!


“John used his magic to create fear among the people in his community,” testified a team member in Sudan. “He was deeply involved in witchcraft and demon possessed.

Please forgive me for what I have been doing.’ Those who witnessed this rejoiced. Six hundred people came to know the Lord that evening."

     Pray that John's witness will continue to be effective to those around him.

“When I saw Christ being crucified, I fell to my knees,” testified Antonia in Nicaragua. “I live across the street from the park. When the team came around inviting people to the JESUS Film, I decided not to go. Once the movie started, I took a chair and sat outside my house where I could see the movie. I watched all of it. After the movie, I asked forgiveness for my sins and for His help to resolve the problems in my life. The team members came and spoke with me a week later. I shared my story with them. I am now very happy to follow Christ.”

     Praise the Lord for this new believer who first rejected the invitation!


“Jesus was crucified to save me,” testified Carlos in Mozambique. “I was invited by a team member to come see the JESUS Film. At first I rejected the invitation but later decided to see the film. It was so marvelous to be there that night. What impressed me most was to see Jesus healing people who believed in Him. He also took care of the poor people. I have no doubt that Jesus is my personal Savior. I want to belong to Him for the rest of my life.”

     Praise the Lord for new believers with a passion to follow Christ!

“I was very much against Christianity,” recalled a man in Myanmar. “There was a group of believers sharing about Jesus and showing the JESUS Film near my house. Their group was growing every day. When I looked at their lives, I wondered how they were so loving and caring within their unity. They often prayed for the sick and healed people. One evening, I felt the need to go and watch the JESUS Film. I saw Jesus die for all sinners. That evening, I gave my life to Jesus. Since then, I have faced many problems, but there is peace in my heart.”

     Pray for the believers in this area to remain strong in their faith and witness.
 

“She had lost all hope of her health being restored,”
reported a team member in India. “A lady named Shantha, who had a blood disease, had been suffering for many years. After seeing the JESUS Film, she asked us to come and pray for her. We laid hands on her and prayed for her healing. She later testified that Jesus had touched her life and delivered her from the disease. She is now a strong believer in Christ. She invites new believers to come to her house for fellowship in the name of Jesus.”

      Praise the Lord for the healing of this sister and her passion to share with others.

“My kids were afraid all the time,” testified a woman in Peru. “My husband is an alcoholic and my kids grew up with many traumas. My husband was constantly violent. Many times I thought the only reason for life was to suffer. I wanted to die. But now I give thanks to God that He sent His Son to die for me on the cross. I have Jesus in my heart and He is my reason to continue with life. I am thankful for my friends who invited me to see the JESUS Film.”

     Pray for this woman’s family as they minister to her husband.

“My eyes were opened and I prayed for Jesus to save me from my sins,” shared a man in Nepal. “They began to show the JESUS Film and even though I was not interested, I stayed to watch it. After the film, I was not happy. The story told me that Jesus died for me, but I had been taught that I am a righteous man and do not need help with salvation. After arguing with the JESUS Film team, I went home. The next day the team came to my home and spoke with me for a few hours. They explained that I am a sinner and need the Savior. I believed them, and now I am happy to know Christ. I want to serve him all of my life.”

     Praise the Lord that the truth was revealed to this man!
 

“Christ Himself was calling on me,” confessed a man from Kenya. “One evening while I was walking home drunk, I passed by the market grounds and found a group watching a film. I was too drunk to care, but while lying in my bed at home, I began to pay attention to the sounds coming from outside. My younger brothers came home and were talking about the film. They were very excited, and said the film was to be shown again the next day. I decided to go. This time, in a sober state, I sat and watched the JESUS Film. My heart was filled with guilt and I started to cry. I accepted Christ into my life. Now, with the help of the local pastor, I am learning to stay sober.”

     Pray for all those who are struggling with addictions worldwide.

“I had a vision to start a new church in the Three Kings neighborhood," testified Jorge, lay coordinator of evangelism in the Mexico East district. "We did a variety of ministry projects during the day and showed the JESUS Film at night. Many children and youth accepted Christ. As we began to disciple the children, we asked the parents to help their children with the discipleship questions at home.  As a result, many of the parents wanted to accept Christ. Within a few weeks, the church grew to 17 people. After three and a half months, we now have 70 people attending church and all 70 are going through discipleship! We plan to disciple more new believers using the JESUS Film and EvangeCubes. Our goal is to evangelize and disciple 1,000 people.”

     May God continue to transform lives and bless the ministry of this church.

“What better way to spend Christmas day than to watch a Christmas movie?” thought a man in Kenya. “I had been drinking with my buddies to celebrate the holidays when we noticed large groups of people heading toward the primary school grounds. After following the crowds, we found the film showing and decided to stay. We watched the whole film and were touched. I realized I had been living an unworthy way of life. Christ died on the cross for me and my sins. When an altar call was made, I immediately went forward and accepted Christ as my personal Savior. Within a few days my friends accepted Christ too and now we are winning more of our friends for Him.”

Praise God for the salvation of these men and their efforts to bring more people to Christ!


“Suddenly I felt a release in my chest by the grace of God,” testified Shazad of Pakistan. “One day, the JESUS Film team came to my village. Our villagers welcomed them warmly. I had suffered from a respiratory infection for three years and during the film I prayed for God to heal me. Now I am completely healed and a follower of Christ. I have stayed in very close contact with the JESUS Film team. I praise God for my healing and salvation."

Shazad requested: "Please pray for my spiritual growth.”

"We went to train pastors and laypeople in Community Based Health Care (CBHC) in this remote mountain region," reports a missionary in Papua New Guinea. "We took JESUS Film equipment to use throughout the district. There are no roads in this rugged area. The only way to reach these people is by walking three days or taking a bush plane. Many of the people who came to be trained had walked two or three days to reach the church. [They] had never seen a television set; never held a remote control before.

"Sunday night the team started setting up the equipment for the JESUS Film. First the generator wouldn't start; then the DVD player stopped; then the projector and all the equipment stopped. We realized this wasn't a problem with the equipment and stopped to pray. These Christians are mighty prayer warriors. God touched the equipment, and all of it worked at the same time!

"The people began coming. This is a church that would hold 300 people in North America.  There were over 1400 men, women, and children packed in! There was literally no ground showing! The windows were full of faces! We started the film. It was in Tok Pisin, the language most understood, so it was incredibly moving. When the crucifixion scene was shown, there were so many sobbing that the District Superintendent asked the team to stop the film so people could come forward to pray.

"It was like a flood! Soon the seekers at the altar were 15 people deep all the way across the church! God poured out his Spirit on us!  When needs were met, we began the film again. Many lives were changed [two weeks before] Resurrection Sunday!"

Praise the Lord for this exciting report and the use of the JESUS Film with CBHC ministry.


“[Watching] the JESUS Film was the experience of a lifetime,” proclaimed Antonio from the Dominican Republic. “I felt the Lord touch my heart. He made me a happy man! He forgave my sin, cleansed my heart, and healed my life. He set me free. I give thanks to Him for loving me so much, for giving His life on the cross for me.”

Pray that those who see the JESUS Film will truly feel His love and His presence.
