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

PRAISES

JESUS Film - Costa Rica
"Our follow-up is fruitful," said a team member in Costa Rica. "We met with four people who accepted Christ at the JESUS film showing and also went to the home of Doña Luz. She invited us to meet with her and her three children to share with them from the Bible. We were happy to do so. We have additional follow up scheduled in this community."

JESUS Film - India
"They watched without disturbance," said a team member in India. "The village where we showed the film is occupied by two distinct tribes. We were pleased to present the film with no conflict between the tribe members. Please pray for the work in this area and for our team members."

JESUS Film - Philippines
"God's amazing power is manifest in the people," said a team member in the Philippines. "We are pleased with the result of the outreach and have a Bible study. We are grateful to see the harvest of our work. Long time believers and new followers are being impacted by the Lord."

Elena Hudson
Thank you for praying last month for Elena Hudson, who broke her arm. Doctors in Canada treated the break and thankfully, she did not have to undergo invasive surgery. She will be in a cast for six more weeks. Tamara, Elena’s mom says, “We are thankful for the Lord’s healing help for Elena during this time.” The Hudsons serve as missionaries in Romania.


PRAYER REQUESTS

Immigration Initiative
In the U.S., 13.5 percent of people are immigrants and are some of the most vulnerable to poverty and injustice. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries is working with compassionate ministry centers in the U.S. to open immigration resource centers where immigrant people can come for support. The centers, authorized by the U.S. government, are places where people seeking a path to citizenship can get advice and legal assistance. Click here to learn more.
