JESUS Film Update
People's lives are being changed
because of JESUS:
"I lived a terrible life," said Adéotti in Benin. "I grew with no religious values. My father died when I was 17. My mother had no resources. As the man of the house, I needed to earn money. I began to sell myself to men. I made enough money for our living expenses and my studies. Today, I am a new man; I met the Lord through the JESUS Film! I was convicted of my sins; I confessed, and Jesus forgave me. I am a member in the new church planted in my community. I participate in all the church activities. Daily, the Lord blesses me materially and spiritually."
Praise God for convicting us of our sins and providing forgiveness.
"It was a beautiful event to hear the Word of God," said Nemecio in Bolivia. "My entire family became believers in Christ. We are thankful the Lord has touched our hearts while we are still young and able to serve Him."
Pray for Nemecio and his family as they live out their faith in service to Christ.
"I was afraid to accept Jesus," said the viewer in Guatemala. "While visiting my aunt, I watched the JESUS Film. I liked the film very much but was afraid to follow Jesus. I called Brother Manuel to ask some questions. Two days later, I accepted Jesus as my Lord. Brother Manuel continues to teach me about Christ."

Abide With Me!
Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson
ABIDE WITH ME!"
"But they constrained Him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And He went in to tarry with them"
Henry F. Lyte was a man who greatly loved the Lord with his whole being. He came up with the saying, "It is better to wear out than to rust out," and it perfectly described his life.During the last 23 years of his life he pastored a poor church in England. He always suffered from poor health but during this time his health started to decline even more. When he finally preached his last sermon on September 4, 1847, it is reported that he practically had to crawl to the pulpit. Shortly before preaching his last sermon he wrote the words and tune to the hymn, "Abide With Me." He based his hymn on today's Scripture that tells the story of Jesus walking with two disciples on the way to Emmaus and their statement, "Abide with us: for it is toward evening and the day is far spent." He went to be with the Lord shortly after writing the hymn.Later William Monk wrote a new tune for the hymn. During a time of personal sorrow, he was inspired by the beauty of a magnificent sunset.
"Abide With Me"
Abide with me—fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens—Lord, with me abide;
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me! Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me!I need Thy presence every passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.
Hold Thou Thy word before my closing eyes,
Shine thru the gloom and point me to the skies;
Heaven's morning breaks and earth's vain shadows flee
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me!
