I’ve been invited to go to Ethiopia and make a documentary. And it could help change the lives of thousands of people.
In the last two years, my church (partnered with the Petros Network) has planted over 614 churches in unreached villages throughout the West Shewa zone in Oromia, Ethiopia. During that period, we’ve seen over 92,000 new believers, over 36,000 baptized in water, and more than 650,000 people have heard the gospel. And we are working with 19 denominations in Ethiopia.
Not only that, but the villages are starting to see redemptive lift thanks to the gospel presence. Social systems are improving, including health and hygiene, women’s rights, treatment of children, sponsorship of widows and orphans, micro-finance projects, and more.
It’s pretty incredible. We believe that people need to hear this story.
However, we need help to tell the story. With the skills and experience Wiley and I have, be will be able to capture the story and create compelling visuals to help. All we need is help funding our travel and minimal gear rentals.
How can you help, you ask? Please take a couple minutes and check out our IndieGoGo campaign to make this project happen: http://igg.me/p/235353?a=1394612 (or see sidebar widget). Even if you can’t support us financially, we would love your help spreading the word to your friends or people you know who may be interested in this project.
I honestly believe that the impact of making this film and starting to screen it through our partnership with the Petros Network will be an influx of people wanting to partner with us and help bring more of this social change to other parts of Ethiopia and around the world.
Do me a favor and check out our project.
