Jesus Film in the USA
Maryama was born and raised in Somalia. When she was 5 years old, her mother died. She was terrified of death, feeling certain she could never enter paradise.
When Maryama immigrated to America as a young wife and mother, things did not improve. Sitting in a car and racked with grief, she cried out, "Allah, Allah, please help me!" When she looked up through her tears, she saw a cross on a building. She had been in the U.S. for 10 years, but had never intently looked at a cross. She went into the church and said, "I want to know about the cross." On a weekly basis, the pastor began showing her the JESUS film. She was mesmerized and shocked. Maryama received the help she had cried out for. She prayed to receive Christ.
Recently Maryama told JESUS Film staff members, "Twenty years ago, Jesus came to me through the JESUS film." Maryama now uses JESUS DVDs to help others receive Jesus' love.
