Your prayers help welcome orphans into the family of Christ…
“Our mother passed away when I was a child,” said Bina in South Asia. “Our father was working in another country. Since I was the oldest of six, I became responsible for my younger brothers and sisters. One of my sisters became very ill. The doctors were not able to cure her. During this difficult time, the JESUS film was shown in our village. I realized Jesus was the answer to our family’s problems and accepted Him into my heart and life. I now have peace and joy as only Christ can give. I prayed and asked Jesus to heal my sister. Christ completely healed her! Jesus is providing for our family and protecting us from harm. We want to serve Christ for the rest of our lives.”
Pray for Bina and her siblings to grow in their faith and share this new faith with others who are watching God provide for them.
“I was raised by a woman in my village because my parents died when I was young,” said 25-year-old Oduor in Kenya. “I lived for Christ as a child, but fell away from my faith as a teen due to pressure from my friends. Due to my drinking of alcohol and quarreling with my wife, she and our three children returned to her parents’ home. When the JESUS film was shown in my village, I saw how much Jesus loved me and died for my sins. I accepted Him into my heart and life. I was very pleased to also see my wife at the showing. We are now serving Christ together at the Preaching Point in our village.”
Pray for Oduor and his wife as they now live for Christ and share their faith with others in their village.
“My parents died when I was six years old,” said an individual in Guatemala. “At that time, I began working in farms, carrying water and wood to provide for my needs. Growing up as an orphan, I thought no one loved me. When I saw the life of Jesus in the JESUS film, I realized He cares for me and loves me. I gave my heart and life to Christ.”
Praise the Lord for the love this individual now experiences in Christ!
