Really quiet

June 16, 2008 at 3:19 am (Uncategorized)

It is late and Emily and I are writing this entry from our first stop in New Orleans! We had an incredible day today, driving was smooth, and time with team was great. It’s amazing how with everything so busy leading up to the film, getting on the road today was strangely relaxing. A friend of mine named Dave was telling me before we began production that his prayer for me was that everything would get really quiet, I felt that today. Holding a camera out the window as we drove I just found myself asking God what is it You want these next weeks to be about. We are all asking Him to calm all the commotion and be the author of this story, keep our team flexible and lead us exactly to what you have. 

Tomorrow morning we shoot our first story, with an amazing woman named Jeannie. More coming soon on Jeanie’s story but it would take more then a blog entry to tell. Ask God to calm nerves, bring out honesty, and use this story to shine a spot light on who God is, and how He works through ordinary people. Thank you for your prayers, I wish I could tell you how much we felt them today. Dreams of awakening are not things satan takes lightly and neither do we, thank you for covering us today. Thank you Father for allowing us a role in your story. Check out the video below for more from today, good night from New Orleans!

    Hey guys,

    Loved the video… The song was amazing, Andrew’s hair was amazing, the baby actors were phenomenal. I was, however, a little disappointed that you didn’t have time to put in some CGI crawfish… Oh well.

    Love you guys… can’t wait to hear what God is up to!

    Hey Darrylneka (and the rest of Jeannie’s crew) we were absolutely blessed by our time with you today. We will be thinking about and praying for each of you often! Blessings, Matt & the BV Team

    From your last blog entry we can see how faithful the Lord is! Jeannie keep trusting and serving. I know Caleb and little man enjoyed their time in New Orleans. Grandmas and grandpas are missing their boys (both big and small) along with our sweet girls. Grant and Greg we enjoyed your sharing on the video and I am very thankful there was nothing serious that came from the crawdad invasion. Our prayer is for rest for the whole team and blessings on the host family. Praying for you, sleep tight, love Mom
