Akalu, a changed life story
Here is a story from Sami (the Africa National Digital Strategy Leader) about how one of those visitors to our Jesus Film YouTube Channel watching the Amharic Jesus Film.
Akalu (35 years old) lives with his younger sisters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He is married and has two children, but he was living with his sister while separated from his wife. He felt hopeless and miserable. On one ordinary day, as he was surfing on YouTube, he ended up watching the Jesus Film in Amharic. Akalu remembered watching the Jesus Film years back, but he barely recalled the story. It had been a long time since he went to church. As he kept watching, he saw a YouTube ad asking him if he wanted to start a relationship with Jesus in his own language. He skipped it, but continued watching. Afterwards another invitation popped up. It was an invitation to pray. This time he responded and clicked the link wondering what to expect. Hear the rest of the story from Sami...
