Have you ever tried to give in your life to something you believe in and then, the very gift you are giving seems small compared to the reward which keeps coming back your way? This is exactly what happened to us yesterday when we contacted an amazing lady of character. Our purpose was to give and instead, we received way much more.
The good book tells us to help others, but few actually follow through on this like Sibyl Burrows. This beautiful lady in Wimberly, Texas was a dear friend to Ellen when she needed a home. Sibyl did one of those "behind the scenes" selfless acts of love to help her and never sought any credit, but she did this out of love and integrity.
When we found out about this beautiful gesture of kindness, we desired to honor Sibyl so she is our new CO-EXECUTIVE PRODUCER of the feature documentary film. Nobody deserves to be honored more than this woman of faith.
Our staff was on the phone with her and she immediately said, "Why not use our new venue Messina Inn in Texas at Coral Springs for a launch party for the movie! Isn't it like a woman of inner grace to take something we wanted to "honor her" and figure out a way to reach out to our team and especially Ellen in helping her get the medical procedures she needs for a potential set of bionic eyes! This is our dream and is our mission and purpose to begin a domino effect helping the visually impaired. Through our non profit VERITAS MISSION FILMS because we believe so much in the future of giving back.
DECEMBER 7, 2017 we are going to have private screenings at the Messina Inn in Texas at Coral Springs both at 2 pm and 6 pm! Sibyl has graciously offered to use this amazing evening for an end of the year true opportunity to share our dream for this wonderful film franchise.
I believe you can't out give God because this is the way He continues to show off too. Remember how important it is to have a "village" of people who surround you, well our village is growing with amazing people who are desiring to impact culture with film.
Thank you Sibyl and for your granddaughter Cherri Maley for opening up your outstanding venue. If you desire to have a wedding, a gathering of corporate or find a beautiful venue only forty five minutes from Austin, Texas, consider the MESSINA INN of Texas! These are among the finest people in the world and are our gracious hosts this Christmas season.
Keep giving to visions and dreams where there is a cause. We are helping the visually impaired, so do everything you can to reach out and make a difference this season. Maybe there is a hospital that needs you, an orphanage, a children's home, handicapped causes, but get involved. Don't want to be a part of something amazing.
This week the MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE opens in Washington, DC and for seventeen years we have seen the birth and maturity of this beautiful gift to the world. We especially thank David, Barbara Green, Steve and Jackie Green along with our son, Michael and daughter in law Lauren Green McAfee as they launch this gift to the world.
Keep giving, it's Thanksgiving!
