International (JFP/MNN) — When people lose their homes, livelihood, and family to events like natural disasters and outbreaks of violence, their beliefs and worldview are “rocked.” But often times, social walls crumble.
There is plenty of upheaval going on around the world right now: nearly four million Syrian refugees have flooded into Jordan and Lebanon, as well as thousands into Armenia, Turkey, and Greece. Next door in Iraq, people are fleeing from violent extremists to safer parts of the country, as well as to Jordan and Turkey.
A similar situation is happening in Ukraine, where civilians are fleeing the violence of civil war and finding refuge in churches.
The good news? Times of pain and uncertainty often create an openness to the Gospel. The JESUS Film Project is responding by asking that you pray for opportunities to help meet physical and spiritual needs. One specific way this organization shares the Gospel is through the “JESUS” film, a two-hour docudrama on the life of Christ. It also uses a variety of other digital technology tools to reach as broad of an audience as possible. Would you consider praying for a few of this ministry’s specific needs?
- Pray for the September mail appeal focusing on seeking funds for DVDs, SD cards, video tablets, pico video projector sets, and compact video players. Thank God for how His Spirit is moving and pray that the ministry might see His blessing through the resources provided for global film evangelism.
- Pray for a good response to the mailing of a new video titled “He Is For Us” which shares how God is working in India and invites support for church-planting teams and film equipment. Pray that hundreds will respond and take advantage of the challenge grant that will multiply the impact of their giving.
