“At first I was hesitant to show the 'JESUS' film to my fellow tribesman...because of their pagan beliefs,” stated Pastor Timcha, an indigenous leader in a Southeast Asian nation. He continued, "But I was amazed to see the people stay until the end of the showing. There were 157 viewers, and 50 [people from his tribe] responded to the gospel message and prayed to accept Jesus into their lives.
Pastor Timcha mobilized “JESUS” film showings in two other locations and witnessed his people responding to the message about Jesus Christ through the film. The local churches that sponsored the showings were very much encouraged as local pastors followed up with the respondents. Although hindered by heavy rain and at one point a strong typhoon, the ministry of sharing the gospel continued to grow as 346 tribal people were added to the kingdom of God.
