Dear Friends and Partners of Media Focus,

Those of us who have been involved in the media over the last three decades don't have to be told that tremendous changes have occurred in the Industry. Some of those have been wonderful, and others, to say the least, disturbing. I was asked in a radio interview almost 30 years ago if I thought Christians would completely change Hollywood. My reply then was, "Not really. What I see is parallel productions. The secular for the most part will trend toward darkness, and the Christians will get better and better and more competitive in their product." Have we not seen this evolve in Film, Television, and even in print, for especially the last two decades? The exciting part is that Faith based work is not only impacting millions of lives, but---smile--making money. Now that part has been a game changer in the Industry making Major Studios take notice and changing their productions geared to more Family Films.

Now here is some other news that you may or may not be aware of:

Recently there is a lot of prophetic talk going around concerning the 7 Mountains. I cannot count the number of times I have heard this term. In fact, Patty brought it up yesterday and again today.

Actually the concept is not new. (No you won't find it in the Bible) In the 70's (I believe) Bill Bright of Campus Crusade and L Cunningham of YWAM both had dreams to relay to each other. It was about 7 mountains of influence and if the church was to reach the world for Christ it much operate in these spheres. One was the Media and another was The Arts and Entertainment. Into both of these the Lord Called Patty and I to witness to unbelievers and to encourage Christians in both of these arenas. We have faithfully answered that call since 1985. Glory to God. This ministry was born in His Heart, and it truly has been a miracle ministry with the most loyal, faithful, praying, giving friends and partners we could ever have wished for. A few of you have walked with us since the 80's. Space won't allow me to recount all that God has done with us all and through us in different ways, but we have touched and impacted many lives in these two spheres of incredible influence.

However, other sources have also been at work to make their voices heard in the Arts, Entertainment and the Media. For instance, China has been quietly buying up Media Assets in our country over recent years. There are also many others ,along with Christians wanting to influence media.

So, this is a call to us to pray and shine where we are. Be a testimony for Christ. Our lives are open productions to many people who are watching.

One last interesting News piece. I am hearing more and more of a Faith Based Production Co. developing a new concept. It is called Wolverine Entertainment, and it has some heavy Christian hitters which I won't name taking active part in the Co. and its work.

In closing, We wish to thank you for your uplifting prayers, and to those who support our ministry work in the Media. We are truly grateful for each of you.

God bless you. We love you all and pray for you.
