JESUS Film - Guatemala
"My husband opposed the gospel," said a viewer in Guatemala. "I wanted to attend church and learn more about God. My husband was jealous and against me learning about religion. When he left me, I went with my aunt to see the JESUS film. I accepted Jesus as Lord. I have many problems but I will fight them with God's help."
JESUS Film - Peru
"I lived apart from God," said Nelida in Peru. "I am 55 years old and one day my son invited me to watch the JESUS film. I was touched by the Lord and encouraged by Pastor Martha to follow Him. I am following and serving the Lord. I am happy because I was able to help my niece come to a relationship with Christ!"
JESUS Film - Togo
"I looked for ways to harm my competitors," said Koffi in Togo. "I am an electrician with a family. I was born a nature worshiper. I saw the JESUS film and realized I was washed with the precious blood of Jesus. I walk with Him and give Him thanks for my life. I no longer spend my time looking for ways to get ahead or harm others. I serve the Lord and my church."
