A Church Reborn

West Africa

    The church building sat empty. Instead of housing praises, it housed bleating goats. Instead of shining with truth, its windows were dark. For many years it stood like this in the village—a vacant shell.

That is, until JESUS brought the church back to life.    On the day of the JESUS film showing, the film team shooed out the goats and swept the church clean. Expectant, they set up the projector, screen and speakers. Before they knew it, 98 people had come. The film played. The energy grew. God’s love pierced their hearts. And the church—once crowded with livestock—filled with new life as 67 people made decisions to follow Christ. Since that day the church continues to grow, teaching people about God’s love and how to live out their faith in Jesus.
