"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
you will be my witnesses...to the ends of the earth."

Acts 1:8

Thank you for praying for JESUS Film teams ministering all around the world! They greatly appreciate your prayer support. This month please pray for the 106 teams ministering in South America. These passionate teams have reached more than 4.53 million people with the JESUS film and other evangelistic tools in the ministry's 21-year history. Of these contacts, over 543,000 have made a decision for Christ, with 55% taking follow-up discipleship classes!

Save or print this email and join us in prayer for JESUS Film teams this month!


Praise God!

  • For the difference Christ is making in people's lives through the JESUS film. From the stories below, read how Christ has transformed the lives of a single mother, a teenage single dad, the wife of an alcoholic, and a teenage boy in jail for crimes he has committed.
  • For the 37,483 lives that have been changed around the world last month by watching the JESUS film!

 

Special Prayer Request:

A JESUS Film team in Senegal had their motorbike stolen last week, their only good transportation method for evangelism. Please pray for the team to feel encouraged and for God to provide a new motorbike for them soon.

Angelica's testimony: “My husband left me, so I have lived a very sad and lonely life. It has been difficult for me to provide for my four children. I was angry with myself and those around me after my husband left. My mother invited me to a JESUS film showing in her neighborhood. After watching the film, I accepted Jesus into my heart and life. He changed everything for me! I now live for Jesus and not myself. My children and I attend discipleship classes each week. My family is learning much about God."

October 8 - 14

Venezuela

Prayer Points:
  • A team leader in Venezuela requests prayer, "that the Lord gives us life, patience, wisdom, health, and strength to be diligent in His work and to wait for His justice and the completion of His purposes in this district."
  • A secular, materialistic mindset prevails among many Venezuelans. Pray the JESUS film will reach into the hearts of the people and they will seek God.
  • Spiritual forces draw Venezuelans away from Christ. Pray these forces will be held back and people’s eyes will be opened to the Good News of Christ.

“My life was chaotic before I accepted Christ. I often lied to my friends. I have two children. My first son was born when I was just 16-years-old. I did not even know what I wanted in life! I lost my wife and the mother of my children last year. This was very hard for me, as now I am a single father. We moved from place to place and had many needs. I was invited to a JESUS film showing by a young person in my neighborhood. Now I know Jesus loves me and walks beside me as I take care of my children. I want my children to grow up in the Church and learn about Jesus and how He takes care of us.”
— Davinson, 19-years-old

October 15 - 21

  • Pray for the JESUS film to be translated into the many indigenous languages in Peru where the Bible has not yet been translated.
  • Pray for teams to reach the country's ethnic minorities and be a powerful witness to them.

Rosaura's testimony: “I have a lot of problems in my home because my husband is an alcoholic. When the JESUS film was shown in my village, I saw the sacrifice Jesus made for my sins. This touched me greatly, so I gave my heart and life to Christ. I now pray for God to do a miracle with my husband, and he will stop drinking alcohol.”

October 22 - 31

Brazil

Prayer Points:
  • Pray for the JESUS Film teams to have the strength and wisdom they need as they show the film across their vast country. Brazil is the world's fifth largest country in both area and population.
  • Pray for the 21 cities of over one million people to be reached with the gospel through the JESUS film.
  • Crime is a serious problem, with Brazil having the world’s highest rate of firearm homicides. Pray Brazilians will find the answer to their life problems in Christ.

"Fifteen-year-old Favaro led a life of crime since he was eleven-years-old! He started dealing drugs, then small robberies, to armed robberies with knives and then guns! He was caught and put into a youth detention facility. We met Favaro when we showed the JESUS film in his facility. After seeing the life of Christ and His sacrifice for his sins, Favaro made a decision for Christ! Now he regularly attends discipleship classes and is preparing to be baptized. His family is thrilled with the life he now lives in Christ." — Brazil Team #8
