Love... And The Power of Story

This girl, her heart full of dreams, passion for telling stories, a vision for making a difference in the world. Recently, she had the opportunity to be a part of telling a story in a series of two videos and some onstage acting. The videos were part of the running theme of Ephesians 6:10-18 at Life Center’s Arts Camp this year. All week, the students were taught through various arts and media that we don’t wrestle with flesh and blood, but that the battle is much more than what we see on the surface.
Israel’s part in the story was to play a girl who feels unloved and lonely. Her role invited viewers into another’s story on a deeper level. On stage during the week she bullied her peers, teasing them and tripping them.

Yet, one girl continued to show her kindness and patience. And that love… regardless?

Well done, Israel. May the Lord continue to bless your passion for discovering stories... and bringing about reconciliation through the telling of stories.
