Going to the “outdoor” movie theater (a walk, bike or moped in ~ instead of drive in).
OK… folks, this is really really wonderful…. Many of you have heard about how the nations are being reached with a showing of the Jesus film in native languages. Another wonderful movie is
l’Espoir (The hope). It is a tour of the bible starting with creation up to the infilling of the Holy Spirit. That was the feature film that we showed. As teams would go out and evangelize or minister to children, a crew would be setting up a projection screen. It starts to get dark at approx 6:00pm and when I say dark, I mean BLACK… there is not much light return from cities out in the bush and villages, so it is black…. The evening events would start off with praise and worship music on the screen (MTV has competition), folks would come and by 7:00pm we’d start the feature film. At the point of resurrection, an invitation to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior was given. Many answered the call of the Spirit of the Lord…. In a Muslim nation…. God reaches to touch all the hearts of the people.

I stood looking up at a jet black sky illuminated with millions of stars in awe. Here I was standing in Africa, out in the middle of nowhere, sharing the greatest gift ever given…. Jesus. As I stood after the invitation to receive Jesus, I looked up and realized how the shepherds felt when the Angel’s announced the arrival of the Savior…I believe that you will travel back to Africa with me as you close your eyes and sing this song. To me it is still resounding after 2000 years……

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and Child.
Holy Infant, so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight;
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born!
