“My children and I gave our lives to Jesus during the JESUS Film.”
Thousands are coming to faith in Christ and receiving Bibles of their own!
“I reluctantly followed my children to the program,” Vivian* says as she reflects on a very special November evening. She is a widow and mother to eight beautiful children. They live in Abaranje in Lagos, Nigeria, where poverty is rampant.
When the children heard about a film being shown free of charge within walking distance, they asked if they could go.
As Vivian watched the JESUS Film with her children, she remembers, “I had a feeling that the miracle Jesus Christ performed in the film was done for me.”
She continues, “My children and I gave our lives to Jesus during the JESUS Film program. Before that time, I desired to have a copy of the Bible, but I could not afford to buy one.” Vivian could not believe it when, thanks to the generosity of our faithful partners, she was given a Bible of her own that night — and so were each one of her eight children!
“This was a miracle!” she says. “I was so excited. When I read it for the first time, I felt peace in my soul. It was a big relief to me. The Bible means so much to me; it has become my source of strength.
I read it daily and encourage my children to read theirs. I have realized that following God brings about transformation. I am happy with this new life.”
The support of our generous friends is helping transform lives and change eternities for people like Vivian and her family . . . all over the world.
