Jesus Film Showing

The Jesus Film is the story of the Gospel of Luke which has been made in many different languages so people of all tongues and tribes can hear the truth of Jesus in their own language. This weekend around 100 people of Kudjip Nazarene Hospital heard of Jesus and saw Jesus in Pidgin. Many had heard of Jesus before and some had even seen this film before, but for others, it was their first time.
Mal came to the hospital just yesterday after a rascal had beaten her up. She sustained an injury to her L arm which we are caring for. Her husband, Martin, has come to be her wasman and is staying with her in the hospital. They live in Banz, just 5 minutes away and attend a church there. However, tonight, was the first time they heard the truth about Jesus. This was the first time they understand that Jesus died on the cross for them and and their sins. Tonight was the first time they believed in God, and understood that only by believing in Christ and His saving work on the cross is one saved. Tonight they were awakened to the understanding that they were children of God. Tonight they became part of the family of God, my brother and sister in Christ. Pray that as they go back to their church, that they may grow more and more in their knowledge of their Savior. There were others who saw and heard this truth for the first time, some who told us and we prayed for them, and others who didn't. There were many who saw and just wanted prayer for something in their lives. Pray for all those who saw, that the Spirit would continue to work in their lives, would convict them of sin, and bring them to a further understanding of who Christ is and what He did for them.
