Supposed to be keeping our precious praying friends up to date on the film project but can’t seem to get past the insulation flapping on the back porch, tons of apples dying to be made into apple-something and Crosby Virginia….still wearing her green butterfly sandals with snow in the forecast?
Our favorite blacksmith summed it up this way: “Curtis, it’s like making the winning shot from half court when the crowd starts hollering, “Do it again! Do it again!” Yep. That about says it all. Can we actually pull this off a second time….and do we really want to?
Curtis is about 30% through interviews and will be on the road again in early December, back to D.C. and Virginia. Lord willing, Charlie will be his assistant, and some of our favorites folks to visit on this trip are Joel Salatin and General Boykin. Recently did some great interviews for Ginni Thomas (wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas) and Dr. Carol Swain at Vanderbilt, which have been great for AGENDA circulation.
At the end of a brief release on Vimeo and have had 84,000 views in the last 2 weeks. Praise the Lord! We pray AGENDA will continue to motivate and educate people nationwide. We are also praying about how to keep marketing (and filming and editing and packing dvds and traveling and schooling and cooking apples and blogging?) But the Lord is faithful; we are humbled and grateful to be in on His plans no matter how crazy the days get.
So you can pray: that we’ll all be sweet to each other; that the Lord will order the script and provide fantastic content; that Curtis and Charlie will have great fellowship as they travel, and that we’ll have continuity in this season here at home (though that almost sounds impossible?)Your wonderful, dear prayers make all the difference and we thank you, as always, for your part in our projects.
