During the transition of moving, on November 17th, 2021 when we returned to the old office at noon from moving some stuff to the new office, we were shocked to find our office had been broken into. After carefully checking, we lost 4 cameras and 1 label printer, 2 nice cameras and lens were donated by a professional photographer, one of them is a 6K camera that we had just purchased for our movie. After it was stolen, it was hard for us to resume our shooting in a short time. It added more difficulties to the difficulty we already had. We at once sent out our prayer request.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:10
This accident really saddened us and made our hearts so heavy. Will God let us begin to work and then withdraw His presence? We found out that brothers and sisters prayed for us more earnestly, some even donated money for the equipment since the insurance company refused to reimburse us. God never rests, we believe that God allowed the equipment to be stolen even though we don’t fully understand at this moment. We kept praying that all the equipment would be returned one day. Charles asked God if He wants us to continue finishing this movie? God didn’t answer him directly, yet raised up more intercessors and supporters. Recalling all the wonderful provisions in the beginning of production, it marked His blessing over this movie. We decided to pause a little bit and will resume our journey as we take rest before the Lord to seek His guidance.
Every morning when we have devotion time together, the Lord revives us through His words. We really feel His wisdom that sustains and strengthens us for our next step.
