Slave or Free?

Julie Sanders (Cru) recently reported on West Africa:
africa-globeAli and Iberahim are determined to spread the good news of Jesus Christ despite the risks. So when they showed the film to approximately 500 people and two accepted Christ, they praised God for softening the hearts of two people surrounded by a religion and culture hostile to the gospel of Jesus.
These two new believers are descendants of black Moors—a people group stricken by slavery throughout history. Even though their country outlawed slavery decades ago, the laws are not enforced. In the far reaches of their country, slavery still exists. Ali and Iberahim believe these new Christians still serve a master in some way.
The village leaders in this village have made continued JESUS showings there difficult, so Ali and Iberahim have offered to take people away from the village to show them JESUS. They also continue to meet with the two new Christians who have found freedom in Christ, teaching them about following Jesus.

Ali and Iberahim are not finished with their work. In the face of obstacles, they are not disheartened. They are determined to bring their countrymen to Jesus and invite them to experience the transformational freedom of following Him.
Note: You can share JESUS with the West Africans near you using the ‘JESUS’ DVD – West African Languages!
