BENEFITING: New Covenant Missions, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 12, 2015
Dawit works in an area of Ethiopia that is dominated by a culture of Islam mixed with Witchdoctors!
Yet in the midst of persecution and rejection he continues to share the good news with his community, and people are getting SAVED! In fact from his last report he shared the Gospel with 480 people and the main witchdoctor who was giving him a hard time accepted Jesus!
Can you imagine if Dawit had a tool in his hand that could present the story of Jesus to a group of 50-100 people in a way they had never seen before in their own language?
We want to equip Dawit with a simple to use, portable, battery powered, solar rechargeable projection system so that he can share the story of Jesus in a way that his community has never experienced!
We have been blessed to purchase these kits for nearly half the retail price!
Will you help us? We will be visiting him on September 16th!
This system will fit in a back pack, has nearly 5 hours of battery time, can be recharged with a solar panel and will be preloaded with the Jesus Film in a variety of languages spoken in Dawit's area!
Here is the best news!
A wonderful friend of NCF donated money for Church Planter Projects so every dollar you donate will be matched by this donation!
That means we only need $584.00 for this project to happen!
Any amount will help us reach our goal! Just think - if 50 people donated $12 each we would exceed our goal!!
Just read these tesimonies:
A JESUS Film™ partnership team visited an African village during an important religious festival in order to share Christ during the period of celebration. It was a wonderful time to watch people of another faith forcing their way to see and hear Jesus speaking in their heart language.
During the five nights of screenings, a total of 857 former followers of the dominant religion indicated decisions to receive Christ." In Ethiopia, the Lord is working powerfully through local pastors who show the "JESUS" film. For years the endless cycle of bloodshed and revenge between the Sidama and Oromo tribes destroyed all hopes of reconciliation. In the village of Adoda, located on the border between these two warring tribes, a local pastor decided to step out in faith and show the film to both people groups soon after a violent, armed conflict raged and while a meeting with government officials transpired.
As he announced in both languages that he was going to show the "JESUS" film, the crowd quieted down, and approximately 3,500 people remained to watch it. First he showed the Sidama translation version, and 105 people responded by giving their lives to Jesus!
The Oromo people then said: "We don't need to wait until tomorrow! Show us now in our language, even if it is late at night!" The pastor complied, and at the conclusion of the Oromo "JESUS" film, 95 people dedicated their lives to Christ. The following morning, both the Sidama and Oromo believers met together for follow-up, and the Lord unified their hearts in His Spirit.
Praise God for using a partnering pastor who boldly showed the "JESUS" film to help build peace between these two warring tribes!
The 'JESUS' film is the most effective evangelistic tool ever invented." Pastor Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life"
More than 200 million men, women and children have indicated decisions to know Christ after viewing the "JESUS" film, and new churches are being planted daily.
