Ethiopians Coming to Christ through ‘Jesus Film’

hcsp.jpgExtreme hunger due to famine in Ethiopia has not distracted from people’s spiritual hunger.

An urgent desire for God’s Word in the East African nation is not only keeping one ministry leaps ahead of their goals, it’s also causing the gospel to spread like wildfire.
Ethiopia has a long history of undervaluing its women, says Ethiopia ministry director for Jesus Film Project, Damtew. Yet, the Jesus Film movie Magdalena: Released from Shame is an adaptation of the Jesus film that speaks directly to this overlooked group. As the Jesus Film project has started to show the film, they’ve been unable to stop its progress.
“Women are being healed at showings as they watch. Demons scream out and are then cast out,” says Damtew. “It’s just so amazing.”
The progress is staggering. The Jesus Film Project team in Ethiopia had planned to train 100 women to set up and show Jesus and Magdalena: Released from Shame in a three-year period. But the demand for the films grew so high so fast, that in only six months, the team has trained 564 women.
The team has trained and equipped 900 leaders to disciple new believers using the Reflection of Hope Bible Study series that accompanies the Magdalena: Released from Shame film.
