Recent praise reports and prayer requests from NCN News, Nazarene Missions International, and JESUS Film Harvest Partners include:

PRAISES

JESUS Film - Brazil
"The people are celebrating," said a team member in Brazil. "The Lord has blessed us with a piece of land for a church building. In each home we visit, the people are talking about God's provisions."

JESUS Film - Mozambique
"Jesus is the only one who can save this world," said 24-year-old Alberto in Mozambique. "I would steal in order to buy drugs. I thank God for this opportunity to see the film of Jesus. A team member invited me to join them for the presentation. I am very excited about what I saw in the film. I believe now in Jesus as the only person who can save people in this world. I want to follow Jesus as my Lord and Savior for the rest of my life! I accept Him as my personal Lord. I ask you all to pray for me."

JESUS Film - Nepal
"A drunkard came to stop the film," said a team member in Nepal. "The film was going for half an hour when the drunken man approached telling us to stop the film. This caused conflict among people. We told them we did not come to fight or argue, and will pack up and go. The majority of the people encouraged us to continue with the film, so we did. When the film came to an end, the drunken man said to us, 'How do I become a follower of Christ?' We explained he needed to believe Christ is God and salvation comes through Him. He said he wanted to be a follower, so we invited him to return the next morning with a fresh mind. We were surprised when he showed up early in the morning seeking to know Christ personally!"

First ordinations
The church in São Tome & Príncipe will be recommending its first pastors for ordination at the district assembly this year. This is an exciting milestone for any district.


PRAYER REQUESTS

Eurasia regional director
Please pray for leaders choosing the next director for the Eurasia Region. The position became open when Gustavo Crocker was elected as a general superintendent in June. Crocker currently serves as the interim regional director in addition to his general superintendent's role.

CAA leader meeting
Last week, officials called in Nazarene leaders from a creative access area. After the meeting where the government personnel asked many questions, one of the leaders said he still does not know the purpose of the meeting.


HEALTH-RELATED REQUESTS

Pastor Ricky Fabella, a 28-year-old man from the Philippines, was diagnosed last month with bilateral kidney failure. He now undergoes peritoneal dialysis five times daily. Before his diagnosis, he pastored Santa Mesa Church of the Nazarene in Baguio.
