OCT 2015 -- Discipleship Film Report

In a small African village, a village elder gave this comment after seeing two episodes of the “Walking With Jesus”* videos: “It was very nice and wonderful, and it has a message for the older men, the old women, the younger mothers, and the kids. We look forward to seeing the rest of the videos. These can help us grow, as we see more of what we need to change in our lives, just like the changes that happened to the chief and everyone else (in the videos). We want to learn more about Christ. This is wonderful in helping us learn what Christ requires of us once we have given our lives to him.”

* Walking With Jesus, a five-part follow-up film series contextualized for Africans, teaches new believers how to grow in their relationship with Christ. Created for members of an oral culture, this video-based discipleship series depicts common African life scenarios, modeling committed Christian discipleship.

OCT 2015 -- Short Films Prepare Hearts

A university student in Asia shared about using [JESUS Film®] short films in ministry: "I am a member of [a local] church. My cell group members organized a Christmas evangelistic program .... During this program we were able to create a safe and comfortable environment in which we showed short films such as 'CTRL Z,' 'La Búsqueda' and 'FallingPlates.' After the films, which served to prepare the hearts of the attendees, we shared the gospel using the Four Spiritual Laws booklet that was published especially for this Christmas outreach. I am very glad to have been chosen from my cell group to share my testimony during the program. With joy overflowing in my heart, I shared the good news about my Savior. A dozen people heard the gospel that day, most of whom accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Throughout this program I was blessed to see the faithfulness and supremacy of our Lord.”
