Well the first thing I need to do is understand how this site works. I look forward to making some connections to further my ideas and promote the word of God.

Take a look at the thread Shane created above. Weigh in if you feel inspired.

Greetings in Christ to all.

We sent the following infro./ request to a number of organisations:
The Lord enabled us to produce a video film Sargashta and a number of dramas to reach the un-reached around the world, who like watching Hindi/Urdu dramas while we were in Pakistan.
Sargashta was created to to present the Gospel to the non-Christians. Please see the promo, pray and consider using this approach to reach Muslims/Hindus/Sikhs and others around you, and if you feel the urge to reach out we'll send a copy at no cost to you to review and share the idea with others, and in the process if the Lord prompts you or your Church/Organization to share the expenses of this approach your smallest love gift will be highly appreciated and will go a long way Glorifying God as we subtitle and produce more movies to reach non-Christians. Please make cheeks payable to Crystal and Ambrose and send to 4807n. Sunflower Ave. Apt. B Covina, Ca 91724

Sargashta promo:

A good number of people requested a copy that was sent to them promptly. A couple of them were very kind to pitch in with the cost of postage etc. but the majority have been quite, so we stopped sending the request and are looking for other ways to get this video out.

Could we get some guidance as to how we should approach the body of Christ, requesting people to make use of this one of a kind resource to reach people around them who may never get a chance to hear the "Word" in any other way.
Please keep us in your prayers.
Working for the cause of Christ
Crystal and Ambrose

Hello Ambrose,
Welcome to VSN. I do know of several members of this network who are working or connected with media in India. You should be able to search on this site to find them. If not, put out a post to ask for connections.

For this film in particular, I would focus on those organizations who are specifically focused on reaching India or South Asian immigrant communities. They are your target and should have the most natural interest. The style and language of the film make it a good fit for those audiences but are probably too big a hurdle for other audiences, especially in N America.

You can reply to me directly if you'd like so this topic doesn't get too far off for this discussion group.

Blessings, Tom

Dear Tom,
It is a blessing to have friends like you who are able to guide people like me who have little or no knowledge of net working. You have rightly pointed out my target.
Here is what I have in mind. I hope and pray that atleast so Churches in the US, Canada, UK will take up the challenge of getting a copy or two of this film, then make copies and ask their members to get a copy for a small donation to their Church, the Church leaders may then send us a little portion of the donation to us if the Lord leads them to do so, for further work.
As the film is sub titled in English they can see how the whole film is built around the "Word" and the "Word" has the power to impact and change lives.
I will try to connect with the members of this net work who are connected to media in India.
Hey Tom, did you see the "Sargashta" promo? Did you see the actor who looks just like Rambo, they call him Pakistani Rambo.
Yours in Christ.

You can do a search on "India" under the Members section of this site to get an idea who is interested in this part of the world.

I have an idea for a non-profit ministry that I would like to share with you guys. The main idea is to Paint biblically based wall murals with non believing young adults. Last year I spent 6 months in Bangkok Thailand as a volunteer media missionary. During that time I worked on a side project that involved painting a 3 story wall mural of the 2nd coming in the Thai art style. It was an amazing experience and it became a huge witnessing opportunity. The biggest question you are probably asking yourself right now is "how is he going to get non- believing young adults involved in outreach?" The answer to that question is Jesus, I take no credit in things that are of the Spirit. What I can do is offer free painting workshops in English. English is in high demand in Asia and students are hungry to learn. I do not want to get caught up in teaching english though that is only part of the big picture. The painting workshops would operate much like a class in that we take a story from the bible like Noah's Ark and study it, research it, design it and paint it. From concept to completion the students are involved in the whole process. Jesus left us a good illustration of this when he took the food the boy offered and multiplied it. After multiplying it he handed it to his disciples and they handed it to the people. When everyone had their fill there was still 12 baskets of leftovers. Those leftovers were not wasted they were taken home by the people to share with their families. In the same way we can work together to feed those that are hungry around the world In meeting their basic need to learn english they are also being fed spiritually. The experience that they have from participating in this mural ministry will be shared with their friends and family just like the leftovers. A mural done by the community itself will mean far more to them than if done by a unknown foreigner. Although I dont doubt that the mural I did in Thailand will be used in a powerful way by God I think that if I were to do it again it would be more effective to do it this way. I am hoping that by doing something like this it can open doors for other artists to do something like this in other countries. I have a basic budget figured out but I am not to sure how to get something like this up and running. If anyone has any ideas/ suggestions/ connections it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
- Cory Goodwin
