In Croatia and Bosnia, 4 workers show the JESUS film. They each have been trained how to:
Their wives often help as well.
Dalibor, one of the JESUS film workers, has started 3 Bible studies, disciples the leaders of the studies, and involves them in his JESUS film outreaches.
"Working with the JESUS film actively trains Christian workers in practical ministry skills for planning, mobilizing, planting and strengthening churches," says Goran Šimac, the director of Croatia and Bosnia's JESUS film ministry. "It enlarges their perspectives as to what God can do and produces a realistic view about reaching Croatia and Bosnia with the gospel."
In the Bosnian city of Bihać, a young believer was on the verge of giving up on her new Christian faith. She had come to Christ through a visitor, but knew no Christians in her city.
So she prayed God that would somehow make Himself real to her. That very day she received an invitation to JESUS and saw the film. "Now I know God is real-He answered my prayer!" Today she is a growing member of a Bible study in Bihać.
"We are not just reaching people through evangelistic projects," Goran says. "We are developing Christian leaders who understand what it takes to reach these countries for Christ and who can carry on. That's the long term. That's our passion."
