This week's praise reports and prayer requests from Nazarene Missions International, JESUS Film Harvest Partners, and NCN News include:

PRAISES


JESUS Film - Guatemala
"I was a drug dealer," said Luis in Guatemala. "I praise God and thank the brothers from the church for bringing the Magdalena JESUS Film to us. I accepted the Lord into my heart and I want to serve Him now. We have started meeting each week in my home for Bible study."

JESUS Film - Pakistan
"I prayed for Jesus to make me humble," said 40 year old Ghorre in Pakistan. "I ignored other people's feelings and would easily fight with others even over little things. My family members were fed up with me. One day, the JESUS Film came to our village. I thought the film was a joke. As I watched, I was impressed by the meekness of Jesus. He bears all sin even of the people who made Him suffer. In that instant, I prayed for Jesus to make me humble that I might not fight with others. Now when I get angry, I remember the JESUS Film and it helps me to calm down as I remember the behavior of Jesus with others. I am thankful to God who granted me an opportunity to change myself through the JESUS Film."

Luis
We praise God for Luis, a new believer in Peru who has discovered the joy of forgiveness for his previous involvement with terrorism. He found Christ after a series of visits from Extreme Nazarene Ministries church planters. Pray that his new faith will mature and strengthen. Also, pray for God's continued blessing on Extreme Nazarene Ministries. Read Luis' story on Engage Magazine by clicking here.

Orphanage Water Well
Thank you for praying for the children who live at an orphanage in an area on the Asia-Pacific Region last week and who became ill due to contaminated water in their well. Continue to keep the children in your prayers as they recover. God has begun answering the need for a new/non-contaminated water at the orphanage through a church on the region that has raised $2,000 towards the need. Praise the Lord for His provision!

Papua New Guinea Hospital
Pray for the patients and staff at the Kudjip Nazarene hospital in Papua New Guinea. The hospital has been experiencing power surges and power outages causing disruption in care. Pray also that God will supply all that is needed so their hydroelectric dam can be rebuilt.

Asia - Pray for people who have been affected by Typhoon Megi, which swept into Taiwan on October 22 after striking the Philippines.
