The below is from Ray Comfort today about something interesting that happened while we were in Israel filming for The Way of the Master Season 5. This was one of many incredible things that took place on our trip. I thought you all would enjoy reading this portion from his newsletter. Our God is huge and there are no coincidences with Him (left: Cana, Israel).
We were able to film every one of the 13 episodes of Season Five of our TV program at amazing locations in Israel (Galilee, Jericho, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, etc.) without any problems, for which we're grateful to God. I will give you more details another time, because I want to tell you about one highlight I will never forget.
We have been working on a documentary for about four months that evolved into the most powerful production we have ever made. It’s called “Hitler, Religion, and the Holocaust,” and it contains interviews of five women and two men who are pro-abortion who change their minds on-camera to pro-life within a matter of seconds because of something they heard. We had already decided to give away 200,000 copies of this DVD later this year at 100 of the country’s top universities, and I wanted to get a promo into the hands of key people.
When we arrived in Jerusalem last week, I learned that Kay Arthur (from Precept Ministries International) was in Jerusalem. A friend of the ministry had met her in the hotel lobby and found that her room was next to his. The amazing thing was that he didn’t know who she was, but mentioned to me that he had met her. That night, we discovered that Kay Arthur’s personal assistant had been through “The Way of the Master Basic Training Course” and loved the ministry.
Kay and I were introduced, and the next day she asked how Kirk became involved with the ministry. When I said that someone had given him a CD called “Hell’s Best Kept Secret,” she pushed my shoulder, jumped back and said, “You are the one! You are the one!” It turned out that she had just listened to “Hell’s Best Kept Secret” in her car (twice), and loved it. That night I screened the new video to her and her staff, and she gave it a wonderful written commendation on the spot.
I already suspected that God’s hand was in this video, but when I thought of the odds of her being in Jerusalem when we were there, at our particular hotel, in a room next to our friend (in a hotel with 284 rooms), her assistant already loving the ministry, and Kay having just listened to “Hell’s Best Kept Secret,“ I am certain God is directing us. We hope to have it available in few weeks. Watch for details.
