Building Bridges through Media

Tiffany was pretty sure the director of the local girls' school, which adheres to the dominant religion in the area, didn't like her. But serving with Jesus Film Project in her region, Tiffany worked hard to build bridges between the ministry and leaders in the community. One day, to her surprise, she had a nice visit with the school's director. This resulted in an invitation for Tiffany and some of her Jesus Film® associates to teach an English class at the school.

The director personally welcomed the team to the campus, serving snacks and talking with them for an hour before the seminar for the students began. The team then showed the short film, "Nightwatch," to a group of 72 girls before breaking out into small discussion groups.

According to Tiffany and the other members of the team, the time spent with the girls was precious. The director seemed appreciative of their visit as well.

Pray that God will continue to strengthen relationships between the local ministry workers and the school's director and teachers. And pray this leads to more opportunities for believers to interact and have spiritual conversations with both the educators and the students.

Jesus Film Project offers more than 30 short films, in more than 190 languages, specially produced to stimulate spiritual conversations with viewers after the films have concluded. Comment below about how you have used a short film to share the gospel.
