India

 Hello everyone!  It has been a while since I last wrote on here, but we’ve got another shoot coming up and once again I am coming to you, begging for your prayer covering!  We felt it so strongly during our last shoot in Thailand–I can’t even describe to you what it felt like to walk around the red light districts so completely covered in a bubble of grace and protection.  We all felt it (my crew) and we couldn’t stop talking about it.  So thank you so much for your faithful and fervent prayers for us!  

On Saturday I will be heading out to India (Feb. 7-18) for almost two weeks of shooting.  Obviously, I can’t go into great detail as for what we’ll be shooting or even where we will be (security and safety issues both for us and the ministries we are going to visit), but needless to say this will be one of the most intense filming experiences we have ever undertaken.  We are going to a section of India where radical Hindu fundamentalists are hacking Christians to pieces.  It’s going to be heavy and intense, and we need your  prayers covering us now more than ever.  Thank you in advance for thinking of us!  

Part of my delay in writing has been the many big things that have developed lately.  The biggest thing is that Wanderlust Productions now has an official home!  Many of you know that Finger of God was made on a shoestring budget, and put together in my living room.  I am now happy to report that my wife has gotten her living room back, and we now have a beautiful studio on the campus where I teach (Judson University).  God has blessed us so much, and we’re so excited to be able to ramp up the production values for Furious Love, but to also keep it grounded in the very real, raw, emotional stories that everyone loves so much about Finger.  Right now, it looks like we’ll be shooting through the end of August, with completion of the film set for the end of 2009.  I don’t know yet when it will be released, as we’ll be exploring various modes of distribution (pray for theatrical release!) which may or may not affect that decision.

I have also begun teaching again at Judson, which as always is rewarding in itself.  So life is busy, busy, but very good.

Also, keep an eye out for the March edition of Christianity Today, as we will have our first major review in their magazine!  You can also check out an interview they did with me regarding Finger on their website when the review comes out.  Again, that’s in March, so be looking for it!  We should also have more showings of the film on TBN coming up in February and March, so check back soon as I get the programming schedule from them in place.  That’s a good place to introduce your friends to the film, because it’s an hour long version of Finger instead of the full 1 hour, 40 minute version.  Of course many of my hard core 
"Finger heads" as I call them will probably cry foul that many of their favorite parts were taken out!

So that’s the news from our neck of the woods.  I’ll try to provide you all with an update of what we were able to capture upon my return from India, so be praying for protection for me and my crew, as well as for God to show up in an incredible and powerful way.  We will be one of the first people to be reporting on the atrocities that are happening over there, as we’ll be in the heart of darkness.  But ours will be a voice for the voiceless.  Pray that their voices will be heard near and far!

Thanks again in advance.  Until I write again…

    I have watched the "Finger of God" film. Absolutely amazing!! What I got from it was this: God is just looking for child-like faith. He wants us to have simple trust, and with THAT, He can use us in such powerful ways if we just begin get ahold of what He is doing...begin to get a global perspective that reaches far beyond our personal, finite capacities! I am deeply encouraged. God bless you all mightily. Keep plowing the fields and fighting the fight! ☺

    Blessings to you and I pray for Gods' Angelic Covering of Fire as you proceed in this marvelous work! Watched the Movie "Finger of God" and Directors commentary well over 20 times each. Just amazing, absolutely amazing...

    Do you record the master tape on Beta SP or Digital Beta?
