Film team shares message of peace in violent African prison

By January 4, 2008

Africa (MNN) – A "JESUS" film team traveled to a
harsh prison in an African country, unnamed for security reasons.

The warden initially refused to allow them in, but when the
team suggested that Jesus could bring peace to his prison, he had a change of
heart. Most of the inmates had never heard the Gospel. At the end of the film, many
indicated a desire to trust Christ. The response was so strong that the team asked the warden if they could
show "JESUS" again later.

The team also established a New Life Training Center in the
prison, to disciple the new believers.  According to the ministry, when the  graduation ceremony for those who completed
the NLTC training was held, there were 1,000 inmates in
attendance.

Each gave a testimony of how
Jesus had radically changed his life. That night, 47 more prisoners surrendered
their lives to the Lord.

Pray that their new faith takes root. Also pray that God prepares them to
capture a clear vision for ministry. Ask God for wisdom for the team as they use their
resources to invest in the work of film evangelism and church planting.
