Prayer & Praise

"The village people are all farmers and of another belief," said a team leader in India. "We met with the head of the village who agreed for us to contact a good number of people. He has now become a ministry leader. We are following up with him and praying with him.
Please pray for the team leaders as they continue to work with the head of the village and the villagers.
"The lady asked 'Who wants to give their hearts to Jesus?'" said a teenager in Cuba. "When she said this, I raised my hand! "I had been running from my home to avoid my parents' fighting. I walked by a house where they were setting up equipment for a film showing. I asked the lady if I could stay there and watch the film. I cried a lot when I gave my heart to Jesus. Today, I don't have to run from home. I'm attending a cell group near my home where they help us and treat us with love."
Praise God for this teenager finding hope and love in Christ.
"Every person desires to know more about our Redeemer," said one believer in the Philippines. "They have access to this knowledge through the JESUS Film. They understand God's love and value for each one of us as a saved person when they watch the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ, through the film."
Pray for God's felt presence as people watch the JESUS film in this ministry in the Philippines.
Praises & Prayer Requests:
- Praise God for the safe return of the Partner Trip participants from Panama.
- Pray for our teams working in resistant areas to find favor with local leaders.
- Tens of thousands of new believers in South Asia are celebrating their first Christmas. Please pray for them and for their new congregations – and for shepherds for these congregations. Year after year it is one of our biggest challenges to ensure new Christians grow into strong and healthy Christians.
