Christians in more than 65 countries suffer interrogation, arrest, and even death for their faith in Jesus Christ.
“I followed a religion that seeks peace through self-denial and worshipped spirits in our home. I watched the JESUS film, and now believe Jesus is the living God. I have decided to worship Him, but it will be extremely difficult because my family will not allow me to remove the idols from our house. I am willing to suffer oppression from my family because of my faith in Jesus.” — Ma, 38-years-old, living in a persecuted nation
Team report: “Brother Sunil helped us show the JESUS film in his village, where many worship gods and goddesses. Even though we had received permission to show the film, some prohibited us and threatened to break our equipment. Then the village leaders arrived and allowed us to continue the showing. Although some continued to disagree, many villagers enjoyed the film. Most villagers gave their lives to Jesus and wanted to be baptized. We have formed a Preaching Point in this village.”
On average, every day, 13 Christians are killed for their faith, 12 churches are attacked, 12 Christians are unjustly arrested or imprisoned, and 5 Christians are abducted.
Team report: “We met a demon worshipper named Arom. He has been doing black magic for 30 years and has been very successful. Many people come to him with their problems. When we visited Arom’s village to show the film, he was very angry and did some rituals to hurt us. He did not succeed because God’s power was protecting us. He realized Jesus is the one true God, and is more powerful than demons. He asked for a Bible and for us to tell him more about Christ. Now Arom’s life has changed and he is in Christ!”
“My father struggled with diabetes for a very long time. I took him to many hospitals and tried every possible cure, but saw no hope. One day, my family and I watched the JESUS film. We saw Jesus heal many people, even when it seemed impossible. We learned that if we had faith in God, He could heal my father. I began fasting and praying for my father. Now he is totally fine and healthy by the grace of God! Our whole family regularly attends church. We are spiritually strong!” –Asif, 26-years-old
