Prayer & Praise

"The hand of God is blessing the church," said the team member in Argentina. "Every time we show the film, testimonies are shared and lives are transformed. Juan is one example. He was given to drinking. When he saw the JESUS Film, he was moved and opened his heart. Now he attends church and brings his family to hear God's Word."
Praise God for the change in Juan's life and his family.
"I was broken-hearted," said the man in Guatemala. "I was a leader in another religion and felt other religious groups were lost in ignorance. I resented them talking with me and offering me information. When my son fell sick, I found no help from my beliefs. The JESUS Film brothers approached me with knowledge of Christ. I started to know Jesus. They told me God hears broken and humble hearts. I immediately bowed down to Him accepting Christ in my life. To God's glory, my son is getting better. My whole family attends the church of these brothers."
Praise God for the knowledge of His love for us.
"When the sound starts, people come," said Dario in the Philippines. "We arrived late, but set up to show the film. We were concerned people would not come. People began to come from everywhere! We saw excitement in the eyes of the children as they watched the film. Trisikad (pedicab) drivers in the area stopped to watch. At the end as we shared, the Holy Spirit worked in one of the trisikad drivers. He started shouting he wanted to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior! With him, 30 people raised their hands willing to accept Christ. It was really a victorious night. God moved in a mighty way. Thank you Lord."
Pray for God's continued work in the hearts of people in the Philippines.
