Psalm 22:27 (NIV)
Dear Friends & Partners,
Across the Africa region in more than 32 countries, over 300 JESUS Film teams minister every month to bring the message of salvation to the lost.
This represents an interdependent connection between donors around the world, JESUS Film Harvest Partners (JFHP) who help equip and support teams, and the hundreds of volunteer leaders and laypersons that take the good news to every corner of Africa.
From the blistering heat of the Sahel desert, to the humid rainforests of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and to the modern suburbs of African urban settings, the story is being shared! Telling the story of love and hope to the lost as Jesus speaks in the many local languages can make an amazing impact.
Our goal is not just to show the JESUS film. We diligently find relevance in our approach to the communities we serve. Many areas do not have materials written in the local languages of each diverse country and culture.
Teams are using audio Bibles and recorded Bible stories to help communicate the gospel further and give depth to the new spiritual life of believers. Bible story scarves are also helping people remember the stories and share them with their friends and neighbors.
Women and youth have been empowered to fulfill the Great Commission to go and make disciples. We see them bravely teaching others the Bible and digging deep into the stories to reveal spiritual truths that impact people’s lives.
Partnerships continue to multiply this Kingdom work. Clergy and laity are being regularly trained in the principles of church planting through materials developed by Dynamic Church Planting International. Spoken Worldwide is helping JFHP to develop orality champions who train people to effectively tell Bible stories in local languages so they can be effective disciples.
Go and spread this Good News today that our hope rests in a Savior who has redeemed the world!
