Where’s Andy been the past 6 months anyway?

Working hard... on what?

It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on a film that I can talk about publicly. Here we are, the last quarter of 2011, and the only thing I can show for the past 10 months is “Build Something Beautiful“, which I shot at the beginning of 2011 in Uganda.

I’ve been busy, though. Crazy busy, producing the largest documentary OFM has done to date, which took me to countries where you have to have armed escorts, where the penalty for becoming a Christian is the most severe in the world, and where we told the story of someone who became a Christian from that community.

Talk about an armed escort!

To tell you any more about this story would endanger the person whose testimony we documented, and possibly ourselves. You’ve probably seen Kenya in the news quite a bit lately and can understand how expatriates, like ourselves and our team, have to take some reasonable precautions because Kenya is not immune or safe from these kinds of things.

I hope you’ll get a chance to see what I’ve been working on for the past 6 months, and if you email me directly I’ll send you a link, so long as you don’t repost anywhere that I was involved in this production.

Please be praying for this unnamed film, which has great potential to effect an entire generation, only through God’s help and sovereign plan of course. It’s a story that has never been told in film format, about a people group that no-one can talk publicly about, and we took seriously our responsibility to tell this story, recognizing we were uniquely positioned and placed here to do so! No-one else in the world would have the opportunity we had to produce a film like this. May God’s kingdom be established among this people forever!
