Puerto Rico

by hannah on April 14, 2014

The STINT team in Puerto Rico is a pioneering team. Because they are the first team in this country, they are even more willing to try new things to reach the campuses they work on.

This month, with a visiting Spring Break team of students from the States, they lead the digital strategy using short films in initiative evangelism. We had them use specifically the short film La Busqueda (which demonstrates the parable of the prodigal son). This means, they went on campus and using the Jesus Film Media™

app on their phone, approached people and asked if they would watch it and share their opinion.

“Blake and I had two students really connect with the film. They were so mad when the daughter didn’t get off the bus and return to the father. After thinking through why she might not get off, the student was like ‘OHHH.’ A light bulb went off and he realized that is what he has been doing to God. He realized he doesn’t feel like he can go back to Him because of all the stuff he’s done. Blake and I got to share the gospel with him and his friend. Although they made no clear decision, it was an awesome conversation that we wouldn’t have had if we didn’t have the film.” – Alyse

Please pray for the individuals on the other end of these conversations! God is always up to something…

A team in Central Asia, had a Spring Break team come join them for a week of ministry. One pair of girls went out and showed the short film, ‘Dying Roads’ – a modern version of the parable of the Good Samaritan. Here is what the STINTer reported:

“The girls [we shared with] immediately said they didn’t think that this story could happen here in their city because of the religious people. Then five minutes later, the girls left to go pray and then came back. (I’ve never had students do that before). Then we got into a conversation about what they think about Christianity and what we think about Islam. They all want to get together again to talk about it. It made away for us to talk about deep things.” – Erin
