Pray for Tez's film "LATE"

This film, written by Tez almost 3 years ago has been placed on the back burner so we could concentrate on other films.

Will you pray we can finish post-production editing sometime this year, so we can offer this family-themed short film as another evangelism tool?

The film tells the story of regrets from an uninvolved father who finally shows up on his daughter's special day.

Tez is featured briefly along with several other staff members from Cru.

Saturation: Tools and Teams to Reach Everyone and Plant Churches

In 2016, 953 digital film projectors were shipped overseas to church-planting film teams waiting to take the gospel to people in 82 countries. Plus 499 video tablets were sent to Jesus Film workers in 20 countries across the globe.

It's been estimated that “every 20 seconds (or less), someone in the world is coming to Christ” through watching JESUS or one of our other films.

Theophilus: The Power of Spoken Word

After posting a video of Spoken Word on her Facebook account, a Jesus Film missionary received the following response from one of her supporters:

"I've been thinking about you today. My full time job is teaching middle school and high school English at a small Christian school. Today, I showed the 8th grade class your Spoken Word video post before we read a poem from our text. The kids were so energized by the video!!!!

They told the ninth graders at lunch.  The ninth graders asked to see it too!"

Follow this link to watch the video for yourself, and while you're there, take a look at our other short films! Remember to share the videos so that you too, can inspire others!

Ears to Hear

Western Europe
“Are you converting and baptizing people?” Azad posed this question to the ministry team. Such a question asked in the Middle East could be dangerous. However, no such restrictions exist in Europe. Now in Europe Azad stood in front of Amir, an Arab speaker and Jesus Film partner.

“We are sharing the good news of Jesus,” Amir answered.

Their conversation revealed that Azad had a hereditary ear problem. He was on his way to the hospital for a pre-surgery consultation. Recognizing the opportunity, Amir shared the story of Peter cutting off the ear of the Roman soldier and of Jesus healing it. Then, he asked if he and his team could pray for Azad.

As they prayed, the Lord began healing Azad’s ear. He returned to the hospital a few days later, and after a series of tests, the doctors proclaimed that surgery was no longer needed.

Azad had been completely healed, and he knew Who healed him. Seeking out Amir and the team, he declared he was ready to give his life to Jesus. But he still had questions—he wanted to learn more. So he eagerly accepted an Arabic New Testament and a JESUS DVD. May the Lord continue to draw Azad to himself.

"Jangled" in Africa

A Jesus Film Mission Trip team recently returned from Lesotho (the mountainous kingdom surrounded by South Africa). 

The team shared Tez's short film, Jangled with two young college men. 

In answering the question "Is there anything in your life that relates to what you saw in this film?" one of the young men confessed that just that morning he had stolen something.

He and his friend were eager to hear about Jesus' love and forgiveness, and to accept His free gift of salvation!
