No Homework Tonight...

The kids wanted to stop on the way home and get a movie to watch.

We haven't watched a movie in quite some time.


I was extremely tired today for some reason. So watching a movie sounded like a good idea to me.

It would give me an evening off from my homework assignments, because I will be working on them all week-end.


We rented the movie End of the Spear.


It ties in with a production that we had watched previously. It's called Beyond the Gates of Splendor and was made more like a documentary.

Yes...

Real people, real situations, real lives, and real tragedy.

All tied together with a real faith.


A calling from God.


The End of the Spear made me cry, just as the prior documentary had.


And I realized once again, how small my faith is...

And how weak I really am.

I hadn't heard of either of these movies until now. They both sound very powerful. I will have to watch them.
When I read your posts, TJ, I have never gotten the sense your a weak person...of faith or otherwise.

Hey Pattie...

I think you'll really enjoy them. Especially since you have missionary friends.

After you watch these two movies, you'll understand exactly what I am talking about.

I really want to see that movie.

I used to listen to Elizabeth Elliott on the radio as I waited in the car line to pick up Benjamin. (it seems like just a couple of years ago, now he's in the 8th grade, yet, I can remember her lessons and hear her voice so clearly!)

It is a story of courage and faith (through the gates of splendor part) I grew up hearing about ..as a testament to faith ..and courage. Be strong and courageous, do not tremble or be afraid, for the Lord your God is with you, wherever you go!

I can't wait to see this story. I've seen the interviews pre release of the movie ...and it was so exciting to hear the testimony of God's grace, mercy and redemptive love.

If I say (and I will) that I am not religious, do not for a moment think I do not believe in God. I just practice my belief in my own, intrapersonal way. Thank you for bringing these two movies to my attention and I shall now seek them out.

Hey Peggikaye...

It is an unbelievable story isn't it?


Hey T...

After you watch the movies, let me know what you think about them.
