Your prayers help relieve financial stress…
“I will give my life to Jesus,” said Henriette, a new believer in Cote d’Ivoire. “After watching the JESUS Film, I realized there is a better life for me. After several divorces, I started to practice prostitution. I needed money to care for my children. In the film, there was a prostitute who anointed Jesus’ feet. Jesus forgave all her sins and she was happy. I want Jesus to care for me as I find a better job to feed my children. I ask you to pray for me as I commit my life to Christ.”
Pray for Henriette as she seeks a better job to care for her children.
“God is my shepherd,” said Martha, a new believer in Venezuela. “My life has been very difficult because I was a woman raising my children alone. I had to walk in bad steps to get money. One day, my brother invited me to watch a video. The JESUS Film transformed my thinking. Now God is my provider and my deliverer. My children have everything they need, as I am following Christ.”
Praise God for providing for Martha and her children.
“I realize I committed many sins,” said Jeanne, a new believer in Togo. “I am a woman who loves easy money. I was a trafficker of children. I went to villages and deceived parents to pick up children. I sold these children in another country for money. They were forced to work in plantations. Each month I would receive money for their labor. I did this for eight years. I know I will go to prison for my sins, but before I do, I am here to receive Jesus asking for the forgiveness of my sins.”
Pray for both Jeanne and the children she has wronged. May she find redemption, and may her victims find peace.
