I (Dave) am excited to be working on our first round of video projects with ReachGlobal for the upcoming conference in February. These videos primarily serve the third component (encouraging and sustaining cross-cultural workers) of the four-fold vision G has given us for using media.
This particular conference only occurs every other year and is a key time for M’s from all over Asia to gather together for worship, teaching, refreshment and encouragement. Our theme for 2017 is “Better Together”, and it is such a great reminder of how the Body of JC works together in partnership to fulfill that to which He has called us. We need each other!
One video I am working on is for a men’s breakout session. The M men submitted real-life questions a few months back that we had three highly respected leaders around the world answer on video. I am editing their responses together to form topical videos on Family, Spiritual Life, Ministry and Leadership that contain valuable wisdom essential to strengthening and sustaining M’s on the field long-term.
Another video I am working on is a “success story” showing how several different M’s, churches and ministries came together in response to Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in The Philippines late 2013 and how G worked through that in mighty ways to accomplish His purposes. Next week I will be traveling to New Orleans to interview RG’s director of crisis response and to gather the necessary assets to tell this story. I am excited to learn more and craft a video that will encourage believers and remind us that we are Better Together!
