On September 10, 2016, JESUS Film Project reported:
“Why do you like refugee children like me?” a 10-year-old boy asked the principal of his school.
The woman smiled at the young refugee, torn from his home in the face of a war that is tearing apart his country. “I love you because the Lord Jesus, whom I serve, taught me this love, and gave me the strength to love everyone and help them. I lived my childhood during the Lebanese war. I did not find anyone to help me with my fear, sadness and insecurity. That’s why I’m interested in you, so that I can help you with the pain.”
“My teacher,” he said, “I want to be like you and learn from Jesus how to love others and care for them.”
This boy now attends Sunday school every week with his brothers. He has come face-to-face with Jesus because believers halfway around the world have equipped Middle Eastern believers with Jesus Film® tools. In refugee camps all over the Middle East, God is drawing war-torn people to the story of Jesus. By seeing JESUS, they discover hope and forgiveness and new life.
