“The Jesus Film” Backpack Mission
“All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20
This passage of Scripture is the commission given to every Christian, as well as every Christian ministry and church. For over 85 years, the purpose of this ministry has been to carry out the Great Commission. We have distributed thousands of Bibles and Christian materials to many countries around the world. Millions of your dollars have gone to support missions and missionaries with one purpose in mind: to win lost souls to Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Bible teaches that Jesus is coming back soon and that we must redouble our efforts in order to carry out our mission. Thousands have been brought to Christ through viewing “The Jesus Film.” The film has been translated into 1,700 languages and is available to be sent all over the world so that those who are unacquainted with the Gospel will be able hear it in their own tongue.
It can be carried and shown in places that no one has traveled to before. Each backpack contains the entire system with all of the accessories necessary to show the film. Most of the areas the film is shown have no electricity; very few have seen a film of any sort. Electricity is provided by a solar panel contained in the backpack, along with screen and projector with sound. The film is in color and portrays the ministry, death, burial, and resurrection of Christ in their language.
Imagine “The Jesus Film” being the first film ever seen. Motorcycles are already available to transport these backpacks into the hardest-to-reach areas. Each backpack will be the responsibility of an American missionary who will show the film. There are scores of American missionaries waiting for a backpack to take into the “utter parts of the world.”
Over 2.9 million people have never heard the Gospel of Christ, and hundreds of missionaries are waiting for one of these backpacks. The cost of one unit is $2,000 and will be used many times. You may be able to purchase one or more of these units yourself.
However, do not underestimate that any amount will make a difference. Your part will be the reason that many will hear the Gospel and accept Jesus as their personal Saviour. All donations of $10 or more will include a bonus DVD of “The Jesus Film” you can use in your own ministry work.
