Your prayers help open doors to miracles: dreams and visions…
“I was in a rebel group for seven years,” said 23-year-old Kibangula in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. “I committed many atrocities against people as part of this rebel group. Because of this, I have not slept for more than two years. I always have bad dreams because of what I have done to others. I wanted to commit suicide because of my actions. When I saw the JESUS film and the life of Christ, I knew Jesus was the answer to my problems. I gave my life to Christ and now serve Him with my whole heart. My life has changed. I am preparing to be baptized.”
Praise the Lord Kibangula has left the rebel group and is now living for Christ!
“There were drunk people creating problems as we showed the JESUS film,” said a team member in Sri Lanka. “They threw stones on the roof where we were showing the film. They planned to continue throwing them the whole time the film was being shown. However, a force greater than themselves would not allow them to throw anymore stones! After the showing, we offered them forgiveness and prayed for those throwing the stones. It blessed us to see the Holy Spirit change their hearts and want to learn more about God.”
Pray for the people who tried to disrupt the showing as they now learn more about God.
“I have been having nightmares for some time,” said 21-year-old Atieno in Kenya who has lived with her grandmother since her mother passed away when she was very young. “In my dreams, I always see a woman calling me to follow her. When I resist her, she wants to cut me with a large knife. Since this dream scares me, I always wake up crying. When I saw the JESUS film, I accepted Christ in my heart and life. Now I live my life for Jesus."
Praise God Atieno is now living for God.
