Zach Francis and Nicolas Elizondo were interviewed yesterday morning for the program "Religion In the News" on WISH-TV8.  It aired this morning at 5 am and we hope to have a recording of it posted on the site very soon. Zach and Nicolas did a fabulous job and the host, other guest and crew of the show were very interested in the performance and took a promo packet and several invites to share with others.

Do You Have a Testimony That Needs to Be Heard?

posted Aug 26, 2010, 10:59 PM by Susannah Francis

We have need for video testimonies for our upcoming Christmas drama. Do you have a powerful story of how you came to Christ? We are looking for three separate testimonies that will follow the pattern found in the Parable of the Sower (Mark 4:1-20). 

1. Heard about Jesus and turned a deaf ear
2. Became a Christian enthusiastically at first, but then fell away
3. Lost sight of Christ through the distractions of this world

Clips of the testimonies will be recorded on video as part of our production of A Christmas Testimony and, if approved by you, a written form of the entire testimony will be available to all that attend the performance as an insert to the playbill/program.  This can be listed anonymously or by your name; the choice is yours!

Please contact Susannah@kingdomdesignministry.com for more information.
