Tim Robnett shares this update about how the Jesus File was used to reach hundreds of souls for Jesus during Transform Uganda II this past August…
Jesus Film Comes Alive!
Elder Alan Ntwiga, a member of the CTM team, called excitedly from the bush about half way into Transform Uganda. Alan had multiple roles for this mission – he coordinated transportation for 130 people, arranged translators for the Nigerians, and coordinated sound equipment each day in three locations. In addition, at night he was responsible to show the Jesus Film in several villages. To do this, he amazingly had to move each day sound equipment, set it up, and move all to a new location, over difficult remote bush roads and even trails, and then do it all over again the next day. And he slept in the back bed of a truck each night while doing this.
With the various sound equipment set up, the idea was to have gifted Nigerian evangelist share the gospel each evening at a typical “crusade” platform event at night. This was done in three villages.
The fourth village was for the Jesus Film showing. Then a rotation of equipment again the next morning and a change to other villages.
About mid-week, Alan called very excited. He said on the phone =+==_&%. We could not understand him due to his excitement. Alan was asked what was wrong or what did he need help with. He then shared, “God is transforming lives!”
He then proceeded to say that the combination of various touches of the Gospel in both word and deed was creating a breakthrough for the villagers. They were understanding! Alan then said that when he
would show the Jesus Film after several of the teams: medical team, women’s and children’s ministry team, the men’s ministry, or the Nigerian evening meetings that people were coming to Christ in amazing ways. The multiple touches, through a variety of ministries, was creating a clear understanding of the Gospel and God was transforming lives. Amazing!
Results of the Jesus Film team during Transform Uganda II:
- Six villages saw the Jesus Film.
- Three of these villages had not previously seen the film.
- Over 900 watched the film and about 120 prayed at the end to recieve Jesus into their hearts when the Gospel was presented.
Praise the Lord for servants like Alan, and praise Him His goodness!
