Romans 12:6-8 (NIV)
Dear Friends & Partners,
They eat with their right hand!
Their food smells and tastes different!
Their clothes look unusual to our eyes. Even their restroom facilities are strange to the Western world! These cultural differences exist but do not separate us.
The uniting factor in all humans is a deep soul hunger. Not knowing how to address this need:
The saving knowledge of Jesus Christ is the only way to satisfy soul hunger. JESUS Film teams around the world are working, even now, to tell people about the Savior. Filling the need in hearts most people do not know how to name. Cultural barriers do not exist for these teams because they are workers called to share about Jesus in their own culture, country, and language. The following testimonies from last month’s team reports exemplify this:
South Asia team leader: “We showed the JESUS film in a new village. People watched it with immense eagerness. Afterward, we sat together and prayed. One viewer said, ‘I saw Jesus do many miracles, does He know magic?’ We face these kinds of questions frequently. I told him, ‘Jesus is the Son of God. He can do all things by His Father’s supreme power.’ The viewer added, ‘I have always followed the priests in my religion who adore many gods, but I’ve never understood the meaning behind these rituals. However, I now see the ways of Jesus are the right ways.’ We rejoice that we were able to form a Preaching Point in this village!”
JESUS Film Harvest Partners (JFHP) is a Kingdom-building ministry devoted to world evangelism through the JESUS film and other tools. JFHP equips and supports JESUS Film teams of local people to do evangelism, discipleship, and church planting.
