I (Micah) recently went to Alberta to participate in a 1-week film challenge with a bunch of other people. Sunday night at 10 pm we got a verse, an action and a prop we had to use in the film, and then went at it!
Organizing equipment before production started. The first day or two were scriptwriting, so I had plenty of time to rest, but the next 6 days we worked really long hours- the longest day we were up for about 21 hours!
Saw some amazing scenery along the way!
The script called for a thug which included assisting Justin Lewis (Polycarp, Remember,etc) to chase down Rich Swingle (Indescribable, Beyond the Mask, etc) and I got “voted” in to play the part- I even got a fake scar:)
On the weekend most of us attended the Badlands Passion Play out by Drumheller.
Down to the last few hours…I had to leave the afternoon of the last day, but everyone else was going hard at it. The film got submitted 7 minutes before the deadline.
It was a good experience to work on another set, especially on a Christian film!
Micah’s friend Tim from Manitoba shared encouraging words.
Our family sang “#606”, Praise God.
Micah gave a short thank you speech. Followed by food!!!
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalm 1: 1 & 2
Micah we love you and are thankful for your godly character and faithfulness! God bless you in the years ahead!
Here are some pictures of activities that we have done this season. We have been kept busy having an extended family gathering at our house, doing a bunch of outside activities and hosting a New years gathering with our friends from church.
Cross country skiing with some relatives.
The crokinole championship trophy!
For those of us that have never won:
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrew 13:5
