Jesus Film Movement of Grace
From April till June, Grace is participating in a MOVEMENT OF GRACE to help reach 60,000 people for the Gospel among the Takia language in Papua New Guinea (40k) and the Piapoko speakers among the mountainous border region of Colombia and Venezuela (20k).
Grace is helping fund the Jesus Film to be translated into each language. Each language is a single voice narration of the film and costs $17 thousand. Grace has set aside 10k towards the first language, and so a total of 24k needs to be raised to reach 60,000 people with the Gospel.
What is the Jesus Film? The Jesus Film is a movie based on the Gospel of Luke that has been translated into over 1,750 languages and in 2018 alone was streamed 149,905,189 times. It is a powerful ministry tool that is being used all over the world in the most remote places with people that have never heard about Jesus.
Will you join us as we look to help fulfill these need of sharing the Gospel among all nations? May we be blessed as we become footnotes in their salvation stories.
Takia and Piapoko
Come around a table with your friends and/or family to have a guided conversation about The Gospel, The Great Commission, and the Takia and Piapoko people. Handouts will be given out at the Sunday service and emailed as well.
May 19th - Stories and Giving
Hear from Lara and Joe Mellema about their time in the Yucatan Peninsula where they showed the film to Mayans three nights in a row in three different villages. Here the progress we’ve made on reaching out financial goals and more about the project. There will be a direct ask that morning to give along with a special token of appreciation for those that participate.
May (TBD) - Saturate
Lara is working on partnering with another church in our area to help with Saturate (www.saturateusa.org). Grace is looking to help pack bags and pass them out door to door to spread the Good News. If you are interested, please contact Lara Mellema. Packing will take place on a Friday night and distribution will take a couple of hours on Saturday morning.
