“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”
Luke 10:19 (ESV)

South Sudan Team Report: “Sudanese people feel insecure and threatened by many things in their lives. Asha was born and raised in a family who had radical religious beliefs. She feared for her life if she renounced these beliefs. However, she dreamed Jesus called her by name and said, ‘You are my child. I have died for your sin.’ When the JESUS film was shown in Asha’s village, she realized Jesus was the person in her dream! She asked Jesus to forgive her sins and gave her heart and life to Christ.”
Akooko’s testimony: “I used to live in the capital, but moved away because my husband left me for another woman. I was so upset, I put a death curse on him! When the JESUS film was shown in our village, I was very happy because I could understand the film in my language. The third time I saw the film, I realized Jesus forgave sinners and told us to forgive those who sinned against us. I knew I needed to forgive my husband! I asked Jesus to forgive my sins and gave my heart and life to Him. I am no longer upset with my husband.”
“I am a painter in a village where malice dominates. Brothers killed one another and no one wants to stay here. But since the teams came to share the Good News through the film, peace is starting to come. Hearts have softened, people are converting to Christ, and a lot of things are changing. The grace of God covers this village.” — Davagan, 33-years-old
Cameroon team #1 report: “When we arrived in the village to show the JESUS film, it was raining. The villagers believed it would not be possible to show the film that night. We gathered in our hosts’ home to pray and sing in preparation to show the film. When it was time to set up the equipment, it miraculously stopped raining! Everyone was amazed the rain stopped in time to show the film. All the villagers watched the film each night it was shown. Many are now attending discipleship classes to learn more about God!”
