Build a Bridge for Jesus this Summer!

-

This could be their one chance to hear the gospel, and your chance to be the one to give it to them!

Yes!  I’ll do my part and will send DVDs of the “JESUS” film to Arabs visiting London this summer. 

I know my DVD might be their only chance to see and hear the gospel in their own language, and that these DVDs will play in the homes of unreached families.

One DVD costs $4.50.  And each DVD is seen by an average of 11 people!

“He delivers and rescues and performs signs and wonders in heaven and on earth…” (Daniel 6:27, New American Standard Bible).

We know that the Middle East has a special place in Jesus’ heart. This is where our Savior was born, and where He grew up. It is a place where He would have built and created furniture with His dad, and fished and played with His brothers.

Sadly, the Enemy has now pitched a tent in Jesus’ back yard. And built walls around it.

Many countries in the Middle East have become vehemently opposed to the teaching of the gospel. In some places, the mere mention of Jesus Christ can mean harsh punishment and even death. It is for this reason that Jesus Film Project® and our partners needed to be strategic about how we evangelize.

As a  result of prayer and our work, there is now an opportunity to reach unreached Arabs in even the most dark and dangerous places.

And because God works in mysterious ways, the opportunity in front of us today is in London, England.  And it’s this summer.

The Strategy

As you read this, families from across the Arabian Peninsula are busy planning their summer vacations. And for the wealthier and more influential families, that means traveling to London.

Attracted by the cooler weather, and diverse community, more than 300,000 Arab families will visit London this summer.

This presents you and me with a special opportunity to fulfill the Great Commission—even in places hostile to the Gospel!!

The project is called “London Bridges” and every DVD you send is a chance to build a bridge that leads to Jesus. And this is your sneak-peak into how your gift can work to spread the message of eternal life in Jesus Christ to the Arab world.


This is a faith-sized goal, so let me tell you a story that shows just how God can use just one DVD to change a whole family.

The Story

After spending her holiday in an open country, a Muslim woman stood at a border checkpoint patiently waiting to return to her Middle Eastern country.  To keep the woman’s identity safe, I’ll call her “Farida.”

At customs, Farida could hear armed border control officers shouting loudly, and issuing travelers with a stern, and ominous warning:

“IF YOU WERE GIVEN A DVD OR NEW TESTAMENT YOU MUST TURN THEM OVER, OR FACE SEVERE PUNISHMENT.”

Farida had not received either one, so she confidently walked through the inspection point. But when she arrived home, upon unpacking her handbags, Farida was shocked at what she found.

In one of her bags was a copy of the “JESUS” film DVD!

You and I both know that nothing can hold back the gospel of Jesus Christ. But sensing that God wanted her to have the “JESUS” film DVD, Farida invited her family to watch the movie.

What Farida told us about that night was nothing short of miraculous.

“All of us were very impressed. We were in tears. The Lord touched our hearts and everyone in my family gave our hearts to Christ.”

Today, Farida is leading her own underground house church of 11 people—all because of a single “JESUS” film DVD that had been ‘placed’ into her handbag!

The Opportunity

This summer our faith-sized goal is to give the “JESUS” film DVD and SD cards to as many Arab tourists as we can.

Would you join us in praying for God to prepare those who will receive the DVDs and SD cards – and then join us to send them?  Let us pray and work so that your gift will ignite a spark for Jesus that will spread like a wildfire!


Before the English summer begins—early in June—we need to plough the ground by duplicating, and labeling thousands of DVDs and SD cards1.

We know that each DVD reaches an average of 11 people with the gospel message2 but that won’t happen unless the DVDs are made and ready to hand out!

The Need

10,​350 DVDs and SD cards for London are needed.  And an additional 12,830 digital tools are needed for other cities in Europe where we’re using the same strategy.

Every $4.50 you send will provide a DVD so that a person from the Middle East can see and hear the gospel in his or her own language.

All so that a tourist—who might never hear the gospel otherwise—has everything needed to meet Jesus

But your gift is needed by April 21 if the DVDs are going to be ready by June.


We are SO excited about the opportunity that God has given.

And I’m sure you’ll agree that this is truly a unique, once-a-year opportunity for you to help reach the unreached throughout the Middle East.

Remember, families will start to arrive in London soon, and your gift is needed by April 21 so that we can greet them in Jesus’ name and hand them your DVD and SD cards.

The angels will be singing and God will be ultimately honored for all that you are doing—for your faithful prayers and generous heart. Together, let us fulfil the Great Commission and bring the love of Jesus to families in the Middle East!
