Testimony From Naisanga Sylivia
Eastern Africa – Missionary Seemu Isaac 2023

I am thankful for God’s intervention in a woman called Naisanga Sylivia of 26 years from Bulike Village. She was demon possessed from the age of 12 years, and she came to watch the Jesus film and her mother. After watching the film and hearing the gospel presentation, her mother accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and savior then she said that we can also pray for her daughter.  We prayed and demons disappeared from the daughter and she also agreed to receive Jesus Christ as her savior. Since that day she is delivered and remains free from demonic oppression and fellowshipping with New Hope Baptist Church in Nawaka.

Testimony From Brenda Kagunna
Eastern Uganda – Missionary Tom Mukonko 2022

This is the testimony from Kagunna Brenda, age 20yrs from Bukova Village. This lady is an orphan and since 15 years she was taking care of herself by being a prostitute, because no one was caring for her. During the film show she also came and watched then when the alter call was given, she came forward and confessed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. Then later she gave me the story of her life. During my time of follow-up with her, I encouraged her and now she has stopped being a prostitute and is now active in the church called Word of Life Baptist Church.

Testimony From David Yowasi
Eastern Uganda – Missionary Malawa Emmanuel 2021

I thank God for Mr. Yowasi David, 27 years of age, from Wanfufu Village. This man was possessed by demons from 16 years to 27years. He was tormented and afflicted by demons in his life but during the Jesus film show, he came with his mother and watched the film. Then at the end of the film show, his mother brought him to me to pray for him. I prayed for the man and he was delivered up to today. So I went back for a follow-up visit and I found him doing well. Then I continued to share with him about how to be BORN AGAIN and both he and his mother accepted Jesus Christ and confessed Him as their Savior and Lord. Now they are fellowshipping in the church called Open the Bible Church” in Wanfufu Village.

Testimony From Haufrey Sakala
Eastern Zambia – Missionary George Phiri 2020

I am Haufrey Sakala and I am 27 years old. I live in Zambia Africa. I became sick when I was 13 years old and for fourteen years was unable to function effectively. My parents both died leaving my grandmother to care for me. She took me to many hospitals to find help. I saw more than 20 doctors, none of whom could help me. My grandmother spent a great deal of money to find a cure for my illness but it was all in vain.

One day she learned that EPI was coming to our village to show the Jesus Film. She was very excited and arranged for some men in my village to come help get me and my brother to the film show that evening. It was very difficult for me to focus on the film since I was mentally disturbed. However God, in His mercy, helped me to see and understand the film. I was touched by the true gospel. Something began to take place in my body. At first I didn’t know what was happening. EPI Counselors began to gather around me and pray…17 demons came out of me that night. I was delivered from mental torment and God restored me to my right mind. I am now a child of God. Instead of isolation and shame God has set me free to live a life that honors Him. I now serve in my church as Church Secretary and worship with my family. Thank you EPI for coming to my village and telling me about Jesus!

Testimony From Charles Njobvu
Eastern Zambia – Missionary George Phiri 2020

My name is Charles Njobvu and I am now age 34.
I have been in prison for 5 years after I was caught and convicted for stealing 5 cows. The government of Zambia jailed me and for sure I did the bad things when I was age 29. I am married with 4 children and it is very hard for them to manage to survive while I am locked up and not able to provide for them. My life in prison is very hard, it is not a home but a grave. I have seen four of my friends die and I almost died but by the grace of God one of the EPI pastors visited our prison and preached the true gospel to a large group of the inmates and 20 of us accepted Jesus Christ. We are now born again” and the pastor has given us books and bibles to help us know God and to lead and share with our friends. Every day this habrought peace and true joy and my life is not the same. Please PRAY for me and my family that I may soon be released and begin serving God.

Thank you…Charles

Testimony from the September 2019 Project

Testimony From John Tembo
Mozambique – Missionary Julius Phiri 2019

My name is John Tembo and I am 74 years of age. I live in Phiya (Fiya village) in western Mozambique. I was not happy to see these religious people coming into my village. I told the headman of the village that these were evil people and that they would bring death to the village. I even thought about killing some of them to discourage them from entering our village. Everyone in the village and even surrounding villages knows that I am a bad person and they know to stay away from me. These people were different from anyone I had ever seen. They did not seem to be afraid of me, even though I cursed at them and talked very bad to them. In spite of my bad words, they continued to go door to door praying for people and inviting them to something they called the Jesus Film. As evening neared, I began to hear music such as I had never heard before. I was very attracted to it and began walking in its direction. Almost all of the people in my village were standing around a large white sheet listening to the music. Soon after I came, this white sheet was filled with pictures of people speaking words that I could understand. As I watched and listened, I was attracted to this story and before long it seemed as if this story was sent just for me. The pictures stopped with this man named Jesus being nailed to a wooden cross. A preacher began to explain why Jesus had been nailed to this cross. I began to understand that because of the many bad things that I had done, Jesus had died for me. Finally he led us in prayer and asked us to come to stand close to him. I had many questions, so I came quickly. After asking many questions, I wanted to receive Jesus. The next day, I brought all 23 of my family members to the preacher so he could tell them the story of Jesus. A church was started in my village that day and all of my family have joined Maseka Baptist Church. Please pray for our church. We do not have a building and the rains are coming soon.

Testimony From Kasim / Hadija Malipula
Missionary Charles Masanja 2019

The following testimony is from a Muslim husband and wife who surrendered their lives to Jesus as a result of watching the Jesus film. Kasim said: “Many times I heard about Jesus death and resurrection. My friends who received Jesus several years ago have completely changed their attitudes! I believe there is something unique in believing in Jesus. I want to be in a relationship with Him.” On that very day, his wife Hadija said: “I have been wishing to become a Christian and attend the church, because I was always coming to tears whenever I heard that Jesus was crucified for our sins. But I was afraid to openly proclaim my faith in Jesus believing that my husband would divorce me. I was also afraid that my parents would reject me and deny that I was their daughter. I am very happy now, as God has opened my husband’s heart to receive Jesus and now we can together serve Jesus Christ.”

Testimony from the November 2018 Project

Testimony From John Tembo
Chama District – Missionary Julius Phiri 2018

We have reached into Mozambique. It was good news to reach Mr.John Tembo and his family. This man of 74 years old, together with his family were not going to have time to hear the word of God. This was an evil man involved in much evil practices including killing people and much bloodshed. But in due time EPI reached Phiya Village. This man did not like our coming, he even told the headman that those people are not good people. They want to bring death into this village but the headman allowed us to do the program with a happy heart. Before the Jesus film show we played the gospel music over our sound system and the man was touched by the music. He came to stand 6 meters away from the area. After the Jesus film and the preaching of the gospel message, when the alter call was given, this man was the first to come and give his life to Christ. The next morning he came with 23 family members and asked me to tell his family the good news of Christ. All the family was touched with the word of God. John and his wife along with the older children all were baptized into the new church that was planted in the area of his village, Masaku Baptist Church. Thank God for your prayers that this bad man after hearing the true gospel has been saved.
