A Mighty Transformation… the Result of Partnership!

I bring you an amazing story about a very unique man in Ethiopia named Binora. He is—or rather WAS—the heir apparent of his father, a powerful and feared village witch doctor. Seven evil spirits were waiting to enter Binora, a transfer of power destined to take place when his father died.

Then an evangelist came to their village. Binora went out with five friends to kill the intruder. But Binora froze before the evangelist. He couldn’t move. Shaking in his presence—overcome by the power of God—Binora heard the evangelist simply say, “Just accept Jesus.”

Binora did and then fled for his life, to escape his father. What God then brought to pass is utterly amazing. All glory to Him!

There remain about 1,100 language groups in Africa alone that don’t have “JESUS” in their mother tongue. As you just saw, by using powerful language software and an innovative workshop strategy where translators focus on related languages, a new script of “JESUS” can be created in just a couple weeks. Once the script is complete, a technical team begins recording the voice actors, using local speakers. After careful editing, lip syncing, and audio mixing, a new translation of “JESUS” is released to eager film teams.

This is how to greatly accelerate getting the film into every language that needs it … how to reacheveryone, everywhere …how you can shine the light of God into the darkness.

Millions of people live and die without knowing Who Jesus is … until someone sends them the gospel. Even if they hear the good news through a local trade language, they may barely understand. But when they hear Jesus speak in their mother tongue or “heart language,” the Word of God resonates within their hearts. Light shines brightly, bringing them hope, freedom and eternal life.

I’m glad you wanted to learn more about this remarkable film. Now you are part of this “JESUS” film family. As you feel led, I invite you to join in, by shining His light in their spiritual darkness!

As you read these words, hundreds of unreached language groups still do not have “JESUS” available. Would you join in this great movement of film translation? Every new oral script costs $16,250 (to cover travel, living expenses, study and supplies). If the average population of a waiting language group is 40,000, your gift of $75 will help produce a script of “JESUS” for 184 people! Your gift of $150 will reach approximately 369 people, overcoming the most critical and first step to giving an unengaged people group the film “JESUS” in their first and primary language. They’ve waited more than 2,000 years. You can be the one to end their wait. As one woman said after watching “JESUS” in her heart language, “I’m so happy. I’ve never seen anything like this in my entire life!”

You can help unreached people understand and experience the love of Jesus. Whatever you can do to give them the gospel—whether you pray or give—you are greatly appreciated.

Trained “JESUS” team members are typically young men sold out to Jesus. They go from village to village, plant churches, follow up new believers, and nurture faith communities. Then they train and equip partners to do the same. Some of the team members once walked in spiritual darkness (like Binora) until someone showed them “JESUS”. They may suffer opposition but are willing to do so for the joy that comes when people hear Jesus speak the Word of God to their hearts … and believe! Thanks for your gracious help and prayers!

A Worldwide Partnership, Laboring as One to Fulfill the Great Commission

“In Matthew 24, Jesus declared that prior to His second coming to earth the gospel of the kingdom would be preached to the whole world. This film, “JESUS”, is one of the means God is using to hasten the day when ‘every knee shall bow’ before our great King.”

— Dr. Billy Graham
