“Last week after watching the David episode, a new believer confessed how God has blessed him through the story. – how God chose David, an imperfect man, and used him.  He said, ” Before now I get discouraged and think that God will give up on me due to many ups and downs in my life. But since God used David despite his weakness as king & prophet, then I am encouraged and now have reason to go on and not give up! Another young man said he repeatedly heard Christians asking the Lord to forgive their many sins and was always confused and thought he was deceived to believe that God has forgiven him all his sins. He said this kept him seriously worried and doubtful until he watched the David episode, and saw how God restored his relationship through David’s prayer of true repentance. He is now much more confident and believes in the true forgiveness from God.”

“We were studying the Mary episode and we asked the question, “What is the significance of the name Emmanuel?” One lady said: “If it means that because of Jesus God is with us then it’s all coming together for me.” She said ” all our sin is on Him, He is the Lamb of God, He did this for us – that is why God is with us!”

“We had a very special time on Saturday, learning about the Messiah and God the Father. There were only four of us, allowing each person to share from their heart, and to ask any questions which were on their minds. At the end of the evening, we had a little birthday celebration for one of the girls.  She wrote this to me afterwards:

“When I was blowing the candles I asked God to saturate our lives with his presence. This is the only treasure that will never end – and such a light never goes out which will bring an endless hope in our hearts. To make it short, he is enough and with his presence all is well.” 

I’ve never heard a more beautiful birthday wish. This is the heart of these friends.”

“One person is using the films in the private school (Lebanese Christian school) where he teaches RE – during the RE lessons.”

“The girl (from an Indian background) welcomed Jesus in her heart during AM course. We did a little ceremony at the end and gave everyone a certificate – it was a joyous time. They are now with us for over a year and slowly growing in their knowledge of Christ.”

East Asia

“After the training, they held the first small group gathering – over 16 attended the first episode viewing event and loved it. They are migrant workers and the small group members said that they will return with more friends. The AM training was very helpful in preparing the church to host this group. Now the churches in the area are excited over this.”

“A friend started leading an AM group with 7 leaders each Monday using the video & materials. Then on Fridays each of the 7 do a bible discussion with a small group of people – of the 40 people about half are not yet believers yet are interested to learn about Jesus. One commented, “So the Jesus who we will see in Heaven, is the same Jesus who walked with Adam & Eve in the Garden, the same Jesus who met with Abraham, and who wrestled with Jacob… it’s all the same Jesus that we will see! He’s the same yesterday, today, forever. Incredible!”

Germany

“On the 17th we will have the first church service in Arabic here – everything will be translated into German. Being together with our refugee friends always feels like heaven (Revelation 7:9). We love that. This all was only possible because of Al Massira.”

“I started to share with a friend the AM ‘Intro’ video and he demanded some privacy, so we used a laptop. Later, he asked to take the videos home so he can watch them alone a second time. On Episode 4, he left the video at home while he went to work.  His daughters found the video and watched it alone.  His wife also saw the video and watched it alone.  It took two months before the wife picked up courage to ask him about the video and what he was doing with it. In total panic, the man realised his entire family had watched the video. Today, almost all members of his family have started to follow Jesus. They have already completed Al Massira and they are now part of a bible study group in their own house.” 

France

“I have recently completed AM with a French girl of Jewish background – she absolutely loved every episode.  At the end of the course she asked if it were possible to be a ’secret believer’. Later on she attended a baptism service where she was challenged with the step of being a witness for what she believed.”
