The Watchmen—Digital Media Project
Vision: Through our prayer, commitment, and collaboration–advancing the kingdom of God
The Watchmen have funded three African languages. That is reason to celebrate! The current project is to raise $50,000 toward "JESUS" Film Digital Media. Check out the site: jesusfilmmedia.org
Nago language in Benin: $43,400 COMPLETED
Ninzo language in Nigeria: $45,800 COMPLETED
Verre language in Nigeria: $38,000 COMPLETED
(The TARGET of the thermometer above reflects funding for three completed languages plus gifts that are now applied toour new digital media project).
First the Nago language for the people of Benin then Ninzo and Verre for Nigeria! We've completed three language translations and men, women and children from these people groups will spend eternity with the Lord as a result of our investment.
Imagine a people group having little to no exposure to the Word of God, being shown a movie in their own language about the life of Jesus Christ taken straight from the Book of Luke. This can be achieved through funding a new language translation of "JESUS," the most translated film in history.
Today, more than half the world has still not heard the gospel, and half of those cannot read or write and remain lost without Christ. To date, there are 865 "people groups" (people who share a common heart language) of 50,000 speakers or more without a "JESUS" film translation in their own dialect. National church leaders and ministry partners are eagerly awaiting the gospel on film—the "tool of choice"—to reach their people for Christ. By sponsoring a new translation of “JESUS,” or other editions of “JESUS” like “Magdalena: Released From Shame,” “The Story of Jesus for Children,” and others, we can help give them the good news in their heart language—the one they best understand.
Our goal, through partnership, is to provide opportunities for those who have yet to encounter Christ and the love He offers. Through shared resources and budgeting, we hope to complete the financing of the translation in two years. The excitement of partnering with similar like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ truly is awe-inspiring.
