Prayer & Praise
August 27, 2014
"I am grateful to God for all He has done in my life," testified Vilma in Peru. "The JESUS Film has served to strengthen the faith of my family and encourages us to continue believing in God. Thank you!"
Please pray for Vilma and her family to be witnesses in their community.
"God is good for my life," said Simon in Bolivia. "Because of the grace of God, I am convinced, after seeing the big screen presentation about the life of Jesus, that I need Him in my life. I completely surrendered myself and my family to the Lord! I thank our God for showing us the true path to live happily as His children. I will be serving the Lord with all of my family."
Pray for this family to have an effective Kingdom ministry.
"I saw Jesus heal the sick," said the viewer in Pakistan. "I watched the film with great interest as I too was sick. I prayed to Jesus to heal me and He healed me! I have become a follower of Christ. I believe those who come to Jesus never go back disappointed. I am thankful to Jesus for all His blessings."
Praise God for this life changing, divine appointment!
