Big New Developments!

 Wow, life has gotten a tad more exciting (and stressful) over the last few weeks.  I’ll try not to bore you with the details, but will simply give you the birds eye view of what is happening.  

First off, I once again ask all of you who believe in what we’re doing to lift us up in prayer from June 3-14, as we will be in Amsterdam and Madrid filming more of Furious Love.  We’ll be in a few dangerous spots in Madrid (from June 10-14), so any and all prayer covering is mucho appreciated and needed.  Thank you so much in advance.  

The other big piece of news is that it appears we now have a FOURTH movie in the works.  First there was Finger of God, and we are currently working on Furious Love as you know.  We are also in discussion with Ken Shamrock (UFC Hall of Famer) to film a documentary about Christians in the UFC and his life story.  But now it appears that the Lord has given me my next assignment (literally, He gave it to me in much the same way He did with Finger and Furious–so I know it’s something I have to do).  The topic of this one?  I couldn’t believe it when I heard it…

Money.

At first I thought God was crazy.  I mean, how in the world can a movie about money (in regards to the kingdom of God) be interesting?  But about 24 hours after He told me to do this, He downloaded the basis of the idea, and let me just say that I am now FULLY on board and very excited about the possiblities of this film, as well as what this could mean for the kingdom.  Please join with me in prayer for the Lord to keep showing me what to do, who to film, and that I might find favor in places where I need it.  

This is the first time I have ever mentioned this on my blog, but I would also ask that you all would keep us in prayer for finances for all of these projects.  My budgets for these films are fairly small (by feature film standards), but when you start to pile 3 or 4 together, suddenly things get fairly interesting.  So prayers for a release of finances and/or investors would be amazing.  Thanks in advance once again!  God has big plans for media and film, I’m more sure of it than I have ever been.  

Oh yes, one last piece of big news.  I have been approached by a major publisher about writing a book about my crazy experiences around the world, filming in these nutty places with all of these amazing people.  We’re currently working up a proposal that both sides are happy with, so keep that in prayer as well.  For those of you who have always wanted to travel alongside me and see what "really" happens when we film and hear the inside stories (as well as the stories that are so unbelievable, I could never put them on film!), this will be your chance!  Finding time for all of this in the midst of a growing family (currently 3 children, and now adopting a 4th from Ethiopia) is quite the challenge.  But God is gracious and provides me with all I need to serve Him in every way.

I’ll try to post an update when I return from Europe.  Thank you again, everyone, for all of your support and prayers as we head out on this journey.

    It is interesting that you mentioned that God is opening up an opportunity to write a book about your experiences. Several months ago I had a dream that I walked into a book store and saw a book that you had written about all of the crazy things God has taken you through with your films! It seems that God has had the plans for this book in the making for a long time! I'll be praying for this and all of the other things God is doing through you!
