Your prayers help relieve financial stress…
“Andrea has gained a new peace,” said a team member in Argentina. “Andrea is the mother of five boys and was always worrying about their future. She worked multiple jobs at the same time so they would lack nothing. This lifestyle often left her frustrated because there still wasn’t enough money or her boys did not respond as she hoped. In Bible study, she realized she needed to leave things in God’s hands. Today she is excited to learn more about the Lord through His Word.”
Pray for Andrea as she leans on God’s support to provide for her children.
“I kept hearing the voice of the Lord, from the film, in my ears,” said Thomas, a new believer in Sierra Leone. “I was a professional gambler and made a lot of money. I was born into a family of believers but rarely attended church. I was obsessed with money and material things. I was deeply touched by the JESUS Film. I came face-to-face with the reality of life. It’s not about making money. I must also consider God. On the last night of the film showing, I surrendered my life to the Lord and asked for His forgiveness. I also asked Him to help me stay away from gambling and to direct me to a decent business. I know this is the right decision. My wife and children will be happy. I’m asking the church to stand with me so I will continue in this new way of life.”
Pray for Thomas as he begins his new life in Christ.
“I thank God for making my daughter healthy,” said Victor, a new believer in Peru. “I spent a lot of money on doctors and sorcerers to help my sick daughter but saw no improvement. One day I was invited to a church where they were conducting a health program. That night I took my daughter and saw the JESUS Film. At the end, when the pastor was praying for the sick, I approached with confidence, believing God could heal my daughter. At that moment, my daughter began to heal and now she is healthy. I received Christ as my Savior.”
Praise Jesus for healing Victor’s daughter.
- Pray for the JESUS Film teams to have wisdom and strength as they share the Good News of Christ with others.
