Church leaders in a city in South America thought people in the barrios did not want to hear the gospel, so they felt quite surprised at the number of people who attended one film showing. Unfortunately it started to rain, so residents began to leave for home. The leaders began to pray for the rain to stop and people to return. To their great delight God answered their prayer as people came back with umbrellas and plastic to shield themselves from the rain. The film resumed playing. "We praised the Lord for the way He was glorified and many lives were touched," remarked a church leader.
