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

PRAISES

JESUS Film - India
"My son was suffering in his body," said 38 year-old-Porbeen in India. "One day the JESUS Film Harvest Partners team organized a showing in our village. We were worried about our son. We had hope when we saw Jesus healing the sick people. I personally invited the team members to our home. They prayed for my son and one week later he was fine. I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior."

JESUS Film - Mexico
"A movie and a cube changed my life," said a viewer in Mexico. "For a long time, I knew I needed a relationship with God, but I did not know what to do. I watched Magdalena (the JESUS film for women) and felt a pull on my heart. When the team presented the EvangeCube, my heart hurt as I realized what Jesus did for me on the cross. I was humbled by his love and gave my life to Christ. I declare I am a child of Christ and will serve Him!" 

JESUS Film - Philippines
"We are committed to the task," said a team member in the Philippines. "We praise God for his unfailing love. We face hardships, but find encouragement in the strength of our Lord. We will not give up, but continue to tell our neighbors about the love of God."
