Your prayers help give hope to the suicidal…
“I had a rope and planned to hang myself,” said Malisawa, a young boy in Zambia. “My parents died in a road accident when I was very young. I have been raised by my uncle who is an alcoholic. I have never gone to school as there was no money for my schooling; my uncle used the funds for his alcohol. I thought dying would be the answer to my problems. On my way to hang myself, I saw a film being shown. I stopped and watched the life of Christ. I saw Christ loved me so much, He was willing to die for me. I gave my heart to Jesus and no longer want to kill myself.”
Pray for Malisawa to grow in his faith and share this new faith with his uncle.
“My wife left me, taking our two children,” said 34-year-old Carlos in the Dominican Republic. “I also lost my job and was very depressed. I began to think about killing myself. A friend invited me to watch the JESUS film. I realized Jesus loved me, no matter what my situation was at this time. I gave my heart and life to Him. I pray God will restore my life and family.”
Pray for Carlos as he looks for a new job and hopes to be reunited with his wife and children.
“I was addicted to alcohol and had many problems in my family,” said 49-year-old Shahbaz in a South Asian country. “I spent all my money on alcohol, so had no money for my family. I even began stealing from people to have more money to buy beer. I was so disgusted with myself, I began to think my family would be better off if I killed myself. However, before I could commit suicide, God provided an opportunity for me to see the JESUS film. As I watched the life of Christ, I realized He died for my sins. I accepted Jesus into my heart and life. Now my life has changed completely.”
Praise the Lord for the difference Christ has made in Shahbaz’s life.
