“Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors & teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work & build up the church, the body of Christ.”
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NLT)
Team report: Two villagers braved the cold and walked 20 km through the hyena-infested jungle to see the JESUS film. Members of two rival political parties also sat side-by-side during the showing. These people nearly killed each other during the 2008 political upheavals. The villagers have already molded 5,000 bricks for their new church!”
“I am an orphan and live with my grandparents. My brothers are in gangs and imprisoned. I enjoy stealing, which has led to many problems. The day I saw the movie about Jesus impacted me. I realized I need to be different. That day I received Christ as my Savior. With God’s help, I will overcome my struggles.” -Javier, 14-years-old
Konan’s testimony: “I have been unemployed since April due to COVID-19. I applied to many companies but received no work. In desperation, I turned to stealing. It was in this dirty business that I planned to attack the JESUS Film team and take their equipment. My plan did not work, and instead, I watched the film. Afterward, I approached a team member to confess. He prayed for me and connected me with the pastor. I am now a member of the church!”
“Today was the day I was planning to kill myself. I am a father of six. It is by divine grace that the team came to my house. They talked about the love of God, which is beyond our needs and expectations. After they shared the Word, I prayed to accept Jesus as my Savior. Then the team prayed for our family. My heart is full of joy. I didn’t know the Lord loves me as a sinner and has a good plan for my life.” –Mumbagama, 34-years-old
