‘JESUS’ Film touches Buddhist monk

Asia (MNN) — A showing of the Gospel had a profound impact on a spiritual leader in South Asia. In a crowd of approximately 100 people watching the "JESUS" film — a large gathering for a country in South Asia — sat a Buddhist monk.

He watched the film very intently and heard Jesus say He is the only One, He is the Way, and "whoever believes Me, believes My Father."

When the film finished, the monk came to the film team and started talking about Buddhism. They told him that no matter what anyone does, no one can gain salvation by works. They shared with him that Jesus is the only One who hears our voice, speaks to us, sees and walks, and helps us in our every work. Their words pierced his heart, and the monk–an honest and sincere man–told the team he wanted to accept Jesus as his God and Savior. They prayed with him, and now he attends church regularly and serves Jesus.

The "JESUS" Film has been translated into more than 1,000 languages, and more than 200 million people have made professions of faith because of it. Today, there are more than 500 language groups with more than 100,000 speakers who still need a film translated into their language. Your financial support can help them do even more.
