“Can You Come to Our Home?”
An Unforgettable Request
The team found an entire family gathered together, with tears in their eyes. Seeing what they thought was anxiety, the team assumed they were hungry, needing food and grain.*
Instead, the family explained: “No. We are not hungry. For the last five years we have been determined to drive out any Christians. Whenever someone came to preach about Jesus or tell us about His love, we have responded by beating them, forcing them to leave. It’s been our policy.
“But now you have come back, and we want to know why. What kind of love do you have? We want to know more. We want to know about this Jesus.”
Like many teams that use “JESUS,” they were equipped with a tool, a video tablet that friends like you helped supply. The small screen is perfect to reach small groups of people in dangerous locations, privately presenting the visual portrayal of the gospel. More importantly, the tablet, with clear Bluetooth speakers, allows them to clearly hear the Word of God in their heart language.
The team responded to their request: “Yes, we will tell you. We have a film about Jesus.” So, the team set up the tablet and speakers. Young and old, the family gathered around. Behind closed doors, safe from opposition, they watched “JESUS.”
Do you know what happened? The love of Jesus broke through, the Word of the Living God, by the Holy Spirit, penetrated and won their hearts. The entire family prayed to receive Christ!
Through that family’s influence, the film team has since used their equipment to show “JESUS” in seven more locations. New believers in the community are asking the team to show “JESUS” to everyone. That’s the power of His Word proclaimed on a single video tablet. “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” (Psalm 107:1, New International Version).
