Walking with Jesus
We are seeing life change due to showings of it. The percentages of people being baptised has risen dramatically!
“I thank God so much for this movie which is making my evangelism to [people in rural areas] very easy,” declared Atsa (a Campus Crusade staff member). “I have been using this episode … often at my first shows, especially when I enter communities where idol worship is very high.”
More than 70 percent of a small Ghanaian farming community lived in the bondage of idolatry. Looking into the eyes of many of the village young people as he shared the gospel, Atsa sensed their interest, but he also sensed something else—fear. They feared leaving their old religion and risking rejection by their families and communities.
Atsa took the opportunity to show a segment of “Walking With Jesus” to the villagers. “Walking With Jesus” is a 5-part follow-up film series contextualized for Africans that teaches new believers how to grow in their relationship with Christ. Created for members of an oral culture, this video-based discipleship series depicts common African life scenarios, modeling committed Christian discipleship, and strengthens the faith of the new believers. As Atsa’s team showed the fifth episode—an episode dealing with the dilemma between serving the true God or the gods worshipped by ancestors—the village square filled with 280 locals. Watching the film in silence, their eyes opened to the truth of the gospel. At the end of the film, when Atsa gave an invitation to come forward, 90 people responded, demonstrating their newfound faith in Christ.
