As Thanksgiving approaches, we thought there is no better time to share some thankful news. Over the past year we have focused our time in raising needed financial support for our ministry. We are thrilled to share with you that as of this month the Lord has provided the funds to make up for our financial shortfall!
This incredible provision could not have happened without you. Many of you not only continued to give, but graciously increased your giving or gave an extra gift to us. Others introduced us to friends and family, so we could share about our ministry with them. Many of them joined our financial team for the first time. We cannot thank you enough for not only standing with us, but going above and beyond to show your love for us!
The Lord taught us many things during this season, but most of all He confirmed our calling to the ministry of reaching the world for Christ through The JESUS Film Project. Thank you for your continued partnership with us. We cannot do it without you!
We mentioned in our June newsletter about the development of the Jesus Film Media App. In October the app became available. It contains the entire library of JESUS Film Project films. You can get the app in the App Store by searching “Jesus Film Media” or at app.jesusfilmmedia.org on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. It is also available for the Android phone through Google Play Store.
Recently, Kelsey—a Cru staff member—used the app with students at the University of Texas to share the gospel with fellow students. This is what she shared about that experience.
“I had the opportunity to train Justin, Josh and Blake how to share their faith through discussions about short films. I only had one iPad with me and we wanted to split into two groups, so I had Justin quickly download the new Jesus Film Media App where he could easily access the films. We then went out to share with students.”
“An hour and half later we came back together and Justin and Josh were beaming with joy as they blurted out, He prayed to receive Christ! They then went on to share how this exciting event took place.”
“They approached Nick who agreed to watch and discuss one of the films. Justin then opened the Jesus Film Media App and showed one of the films to Nick on his phone. While discussing the questions about the film, Nick shared that he had never heard the gospel explained so clearly in a way he could understand, and said he wanted to pray to receive Jesus!”
Pray for those who are using the app that many will come to know Christ. We appreciate your partnership with us.
