RECALL: WHEN 'JESUS' CAME TO PENDEFORD
Hello again folks! Back in 2005 during the days of our little home fellowship in Wolverhampton; Living Waters Christian Fellowship [LWCF] was engaged in one or two evangelistic ventures. One of those events was to host an outreach event in a Wolverhampton city centre hotel. Through friends and contacts [especially Mysia!]; we were able to host our meeting with the lead speech being made by none other than Hollywood actor Bruce Marchiano.
Bruce is the actor who played Jesus in the Visual Bible's film entitled "Matthew" ... he also made an appearance in the follow-up release entitled "Acts". We had met Bruce a couple of times on his UK speaking tours thru' Mysia and she was instrumental in organizing the meeting. I remember introducing the meeting and playing percussion with John Elson [Guitar/Vocals] during the worship time. I remember the moving monologue and gospel message during which Bruce described some amazing events that took place during the filming of the movie. I remember meeting our good friends Dave and Chris Hall [now at Living Waters Ministries Cyprus] for the first time and other old and new faces.
Rebekah was just six  years old back then and you can see her with Bruce in out half-decorated front room in the photograph above. After the meeting; we all travelled back by mini-bus to our humble abode and a lovely buffet/spread was put on to those who would partake. Bruce was a charming guest and I enjoyed meeting him as did LWCF and our extended families. Real fruit emerged from that occasion ... people had divine appointments; they met the Lord and were encouraged greatly. I is good to sit here remembering that night almost five  years on. I recommend you get a hold of that 'Matthew' DVD and be edified as the events of the apostle Mattias are portrayed very succinctly on film.
Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 23-Sep-2010
