"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Matthew 28:19

Dieudonné's testimony: “I grew up in a large city, even though I was from a village about 1,000 miles away. As a young man, I accepted Christ into my heart and life and became an evangelist, sharing the Good News of Christ with others. As an adult, I returned to my home village and became the leader. As all men of my village drank the local beer, I joined in. When the JESUS Film team arrived in my village, I talked at length with the team members. I repented of my sins as the team prayed for me. After everyone saw the JESUS film, the team started a new Preaching Point in our village. Everyone is participating in the discipleship classes twice a week."

May 8 - 14

Togo

Prayer Points:
  • Seven of the 56 people groups in Togo have yet to be reached with the gospel. Pray for open doors for JESUS Film teams to go where the church is not yet.
  • Pray for the Togolese to be released from the powers of darkness which are so prevalent in Togo.
  • Pray for young people to be called to preach and trained to lead congregations.

Noelia's testimony: “I am a sociology student in my final year of university. Before watching the JESUS film, I would scam men from Facebook and the internet. This was how I earned my living and school expenses! After watching the film, I knew I was sinning and asked Jesus to forgive me. My life has completely changed since He now lives in my heart. I now share Christ with my family and friends and am a leader in my church. Those who knew me before Christ came into my heart can testify of the difference Christ makes in a person’s life!"

May 15 - 21

El Salvador

Prayer Points:
  • El Salvador is still recovering from a 12 year civil war. Pray for protection from violence as the JESUS film is shown.
  • Over three million El Salvadoreans live in other countries, supporting their families in El Salvador. Pray for these families who are divided.
  • Large numbers of youth are involved in gangs, due in part to the absence of their fathers. Pray JESUS Film teams will reach these young men for Christ.

“A man and his wife belonged to a gang. When they saw the JESUS film, they knew they needed to change their lives and accepted Christ into their hearts. They moved to a new town with their two children to begin a new life with Christ. However, they thought their previous gang members would find them and were afraid to share the Good News of Christ with others. With the help and protection of a friend, they now freely share what Christ has done in their hearts and lives and are involved with evangelism in their new town.”  – El Salvador Team #2

“Our team is ministering with a group of young people who do not attend church. Through the JESUS film and other evangelical tools, we shared the Good News of Christ with them. As we mentor them, we are helping them leave the many distractions and vices in which they have been involved. As we work with these young people, we have also ministered to their families! Continue to pray for these families as they seek Christ in their lives.”  – Chile Team #2
