Film Ministry to The Maasai - The Jesus Film
A very effective way of attracting and bringing the Maasai to Jesus Christ is through Film Ministry. The Maasai Evangelistic Association runs The JESUS Film ministry which is recorded in Maasai language. We have seen many Maasai becoming Christians as a result of coming to see the The JESUS Film.
Part of the all-important follow-up for Maasai missions is to bring more reality into the new believer's conscious experience.
Christian Film Ministry means taking good-quality Christian films such as The Jesus Film to where the people live. As some of them live in arid and semi-arid regions, this requires reliable transport, projection facilities, and a film crew!
The Jesus Film
A film crew from Maasai Evangelistic Association, Narok, brought a projector and screen, a petrol-powered generator, and The Jesus Film. The narrative is based on Matthew's gospel, and relates some of the major events in the life of Jesus Christ. Although originally filmed in Israel, The Jesus Film sound track has been skilfully dubbed over in the Ki-Maasai language.
In remoter rural areas, The Jesus Film prOutdoor Jesus Film Ministryovides a powerful follow-up to the evangelistic outreach. Many of these people have never seen a film before, so the excitement is huge. Whenever a miracle happens, there is spontaneous cheering and applause.
On the other hand, when something bad appeared to be happening to Jesus, an excited onlooker threw his spear through the screen!
