North Africa: Chief with Cellphone

North Africa Map

The President of Cru, Steve Douglass, told this story at our recent all-staff conference:

Near the border of North Africa, there had been some interest in the JESUS Film and the tribal chief asked for the needed equipment to show the film. For some reason, it was impossible to send it. Years later, the chief got a cell phone and downloaded the JESUS Film App with his language on it. He mobilized 10 more people with cell phones and they began going door to door! In a relatively short period of time, 1000 more people came to know Jesus. Next, all of them set out to reach a neighboring tribe!

To God be the glory!

Note: Our “JESUS DVD – Arabic Dialects (ARL)” plays both the “JESUS Film” and the “Magdalena” version in various Arabic dialects.
