Furious Love Released!
Finally, the day has arrived when Furious Love is released on DVD! We’re so excited to begin this new journey and to share this movie with the world. The “theatrical release” through churches worldwide has been an enormous success, with well over 600 churches in over 20 countries participating. Thank you so much, all of you, for getting so excited about this movie, for being honest with us, and for supporting what we are trying to do through media.
I have dreamed of this day for a very long time. I can’t tell you how many times I stared out the window of an airplane, 30,000 feet in the air, heading back from some dark place, and wondered what this day might feel like. Would I be ecstatic? Nervous? Overwhelmed? The reality is far less stark than that. Today is another day, just like every other day. At least, that’s what it feels like. Maybe it’s the fact that we’re starting to gear up for more movies, or the fact that I’m on this crazy deadline to finish the book I’m writing (due out early 2011!) about my adventures. Then again, maybe it’s just God’s way of keeping me sheltered, of keeping my ego in check. Yeah, I like that better…
So much has happened over these last couple of months since the church release. We’ve started a non-profit (wanderlustfoundation.org), I was given a book deal with Destiny Image Publishing, we started filming the follow up to Furious Love, I’ve been on a host of TV shows and radio interviews and magazines, and this summer looks to be even busier than ever. We are working on a cartoon, a film about the UFC with Ken Shamrock, a couple of short films, and a bunch of other stuff as well.
But I just wanted to stop the train at the station for a moment today to mark a milestone in my life, and in the life of this company. When the masses get their hands on Furious Love, I have a feeling our lives here at Wanderlust Productions will never be the same. But today, everything is the same. My prayer is that while success and testimonies and controversy rage around us from here on out, that inside, in our spirits, in my heart, nothing will change. My crew and I will still be three idiots traveling the world, witnessing the mighty works of God with humble, naive hearts, and that God will still be our Director.
