Your prayers help strengthen a weary world…
“I have been told my sister and I will never find a job or be married,” cried 23-year-old Miriam to the JESUS Film team member in Zambia. “My deceased father’s family put a spell on us. My mother, sister and I went to a witch doctor to have this spell removed. The witch doctor would charge an exorbitant amount which we could not afford. While watching the JESUS film, I saw Jesus casting out demons and healing sick people. The next day, the JESUS Film team came to our home and prayed for my mother, sister and me. The three of us confessed our sins to God, asked for forgiveness, and accepted Christ into our lives. We now serve God in our church and village.”
Praise the Lord for the difference Christ is making in this family’s life.
“I praise God because He has heard my prayers,” said a woman in Guatemala. The Guatemalan team leader explained after a life of suffering from living with an alcoholic husband, this woman accepted Jesus as her Savior. Her husband has noticed a difference in her life and is making changes in his life as well. She hopes her husband will accept Jesus soon. She continues to pray for the salvation of her husband and the rest of her family.
Pray for these family members to find a relationship with the Lord.
“I used to worry about my children and their financial needs,” said Ranjana in India. “There was no peace or satisfaction in my mind. When the JESUS film was shown in my village, I saw Jesus cares for us and helps us when we are in need. I accepted Christ as my personal Savior. I am now happy as I continue to learn more about Jesus in discipleship classes.”
Pray for Ranjana as she grows in her faith and shares her faith with others in her village.
