It’s dark and the mosquitoes are biting, but dozens—maybe hundreds—of people sit transfixed by the scene they see playing on a big white screen: Jesus is dying on the cross. Tears fall and hard hearts melt at the depiction of Christ’s great sacrifice. Soon, shouts of triumph ring out from the crowd as Jesus rises from the dead.
After the movie, Gospel for Asia-supported film team missionaries stand up and explain more about the new life Jesus gives. They introduce the local pastor, and they offer to pray for anyone who has sicknesses or troubles; it will be hours before the team finishes talking with curious individuals.
Today, many similar scenes will take place in communities across Asia. Within a few hours, a film and a team of two to five missionaries can tell Jesus’ story to an entire community and provide an opportunity for the local pastor to start building relationships with villagers. The life of film-ministry missionaries is intense, but these workers are being used by God in mighty ways. Please pray with us for Gospel for Asia-supported film ministry.
