A while back, we decided to enter the Lost Boy: The Next Chapter documentary in some film competitions around the world. Much to our surprise and delight, it has won awards both stateside and internationally as well.
This last weekend, it was just awarded Best American Documentary (Under 75 Minutes) at the International Film Festival of South Africa. In addition, the film was recently selected as one of just ten films that were screened during the Outreach Film Festival in San Diego.
Lost Boy: The Next Chapter has already received the Audience Favorite Best Documentary Award at the Riverside International Film Festival and the Best Documentary Award at the International Christian Film Festival. In addition, it has been screened at the Long Island International Film Festival and the International Film Festival of Ireland.
Originally created as the companion piece to my autobiographical book, Lost Boy, the documentary film version offers viewers a chance to learn about my rather unusual life story and how God intervened in the life of a mixed-up teenager and brought hope and purpose.
So we thank God for this additional exposure and, hopefully, further spreading the message of hope that people need to hear so desperately today!
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
That is my topic tonight in Orange County for our Bible study, as part of our last days series. I will also give the same message this coming Sunday at Harvest.
