Pioneering and Accelerating Evangelism to Nations and Unreached Peoples

July 2016 Prayer Requests

-

"Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things,
which you do not know” Jeremiah 33:3 (New King James Version).

The summertime is a key season for various kinds of evangelism utilizing the "JESUS" film and video tools across the globe.

Pray for:

1.  Short-term mission trips provide a number of opportunities for people to do hands-on ministry by coming alongside national staff and partners to accelerate the work in open and restricted-access nations. To learn about going on one of these JF mission trips yourself, click here:  www.jfmt.org

Please lift up the following outreaches in prayer:

a. France (Marseille-Mediterranean Crossing): Community Ministry distributing "JESUS" DVDs and evangelistic literature [July].

b.  Panama: Campus Ministry evangelism utilizing "JESUS" film clips shared on mobile devices [July].

c.  New Caledonia (South Pacific): Campus Ministry evangelism taking the gospel to unreached students who have their roots in tribal traditions. The outreach includes one-to-one campus evangelism, prayer walking, and distributing student “survival kits” which contain "JESUS" DVDs [July 15 - July 28, 2016].

d.  Gabon (Central Africa): Community Ministry evangelism utilizing "JESUS" open-air showings, as well as using DVDs and other video tools in urban centers [July 17 - July 31, 2016].

e.  England (London Bridges): Community Ministry distributing "JESUS" DVDs and other video formats to Arab Gulf visitors [July and August].

2.  Community festivals also serve as venues to distribute multi-language, "JESUS" DVDs to immigrants and an array of ethnic groups. Please pray for these outreach festivals this summer.

a.  United Kingdom: Community Ministry through a partner organization distributing "JESUS" DVDs to immigrants and refugee groups from the Middle East [June to mid-July].

b.  India – As India celebrates its independence day with cultural festivals around the U.S. in August, Naya Jeevan will distribute 6,000 "JESUS" DVDs and other gospel literature potentially reaching 24,000 people. Typically about 60 percent of Indians will accept these materials when offered at a street fair or festival. Please pray for preparations for this outreach in August. Pray also for the hearts of those who will receive the DVDs and materials—that they will respond to the one true God.

3.  Ministry to Muslims is hosting a Training and Outreach Workshop [early July] in Southern California. Seven ministries are coming together to train the churches and reach over 15,000 people in four days. You are invited to partner with them; consider bringing a team from your church. For more information, please call: (714) 391-0463 or view their website: www.ministrytomuslims.com.

4.  World Youth Day 2016: Poland plays host to this year’s event, July 25-31. Pray for 200 volunteers in cities across the country who will be using the “JESUS” film and other digital tools, to share Christ and His message of love, forgiveness and salvation. Pray many will come to faith for the very first time.

In addition, please pray for the following:

Pray for a good response to the July postal appeal focusing on resourcing church-planting film and partner teams with digital tools (DVDs, SD cards, tablets, etc.) Pray that as friends read the letter, they will be touched by the powerful stories and many will be prompted by the Holy Spirit to invest in taking the gospel to unreached people.

Pray for the completion of a video report on the use of film-showing equipment in the nation of Madagascar. Pray the report would encourage friends of the ministry and prompt a number of people to help supply projection equipment for film evangelism and church planting, not only for Madagascar and southern and eastern Africa, but across the globe.

Pray for the work of beginning a new 31-day story and prayer guide. Ask God to lead in the creation of this tool to mobilize prayer and tell of God’s mighty acts in our world today.

Pray for the follow-up from our June briefing in Colorado. Thank God for the couples and families who attended and how He worked in many hearts. Pray for those who were led to respond to the various opportunities for greater involvement and pray that others who have not yet responded will consider doing so.
