Flannel Stories - Jen...Update

July 8, 2015

The fear of the Lord leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble. Proverbs 23.19

After watching BASIC Fear God Jen realized she could let go of her past and because she feared God, she had nothing to fear. She "found the fear that leads to life" discussed in the book of Proverbs.

Since we filmed Jen's story she and her husband felt God calling them to Uganda to care for and disciple orphans. They are leaving today. Please pray for Jen, Brain and their 3 children as they relocate. Specifically they ask you to pray:

  • That God will continue to lead them in extraordinary ways, surprising them with grace upon grace and encouragement, as they need it.
  • That they will represent the Lord well among new friends and relationships, and that He will guide them as they learn to respond to the need in their presence.
  • That their family will remain unified they learn an entire new culture, foods, sight, sounds and experiences.
  • And pray for courage for their 3 girls to remain strong in the Lord's grip when they are uncomfortable and experiencing fear.


Please watch Jen's story and pray for them often.

Flannel Story | Marge and Ardis

Marge and Ardis

One of the great things about NOOMA films is their ability to touch lives across several generations. Though originally intended to reach younger audiences, viewers of all ages are finding the films compelling, relevant, and thought-provoking.

When grandmother Marge first watched the NOOMA Rain, which her daughter-in-law had given her, she loved it and decided to give it to her church. She was hooked. Marge introduced her close friend, Ardis, to the NOOMA films, and soon Ardis had bought the whole series.

“I think it’s very applicable to just about any age group,” Marge says. “We’ve used them several times in our Life Group, which is a Bible study group that’s made up of 50 and over people. They have just added such a new element. They’re thoughtful and you look at them more than once and you pick out so many things that you had missed the first time. They’re just rich in content.”

Marge and Ardis watch the films together before sharing them with the group. The films allowed them to connect further on a personal level and grow spiritually at ages when many people are content to stop growing. Growing and learning are important to Marge, who says, “I think I’ve come to feel that I simply have to keep on learning.”

Ardis agrees. “I think that people are people and in every generation you find people that are curious and are natural learners and you find people who aren’t that interested in being active learners.”

The NOOMA films have challenged the members of Marge and Ardis’ Life Group to examine their faith more closely. As Marge puts it, “In our Bible studies we’re always trying to find a way — especially with people our age who have been Christians for many years — to look at our faith in different ways, that may open our eyes to see that it could be this way, too. It’s not changing our faith, it’s adding to our perspective on it…anything that helps you reach people with the message of Jesus is valuable.”
