I took some video on Saturday during our practice. Not everyone is in costume and the sanctuary is a mess but it gives you a small glimpse of what it is about. I tried to capture the heaven scene but the video was to long. Maybe Ill put it on YouTube.
This first video is from a distance, but it is of Jesus preaching in frontof the multitude of people. He multiplies the bread and the fish and feeds thousands of people. When the people are jumping up and running out it is after he has passed out the bread. You can see the Roman Solders patrolling the pretend streets.
This next video is on Palm Sunday. Generally the cast will be waving palm branches but not during practice. Jesus is of course in the white coming through the door, and yes, that is my son running through the isles after him. LOL
This scene is the Hell scene. I tried to capture a demon falling from the ceiling. I kinda missed it though. This scene is the spiritual battle between Satan and the Angels while Judas is betraying Jesus with 30 pieces of silver. I couldn't capture Satan, but he is quite freaky. During the whole play he is pretty much in it. As you can see our play has a lot of spiritual battles in it because in reality, that is what was going on behind what everyone could see. Satan was working VERY hard to win. But we know in the end he does NOT win. Thank GOD!!!!
This is Jordan (our Jesus in the play) right after John the Baptist baptized him. And the picture below that is Chelsea in her slave costume getting geard up for the Egypt scene, which I did not capture.
On the adoption topic. Yesterday I got a big ol packet in the mail from the adoption agency here in town. This will be the third time I have filled out information for an agency but this packet is different. I opened the packet and was looking through it and found some actual court documents. It was so surreal to see these papers with my courts name on the top, and to realize that these are the papers that I will sign my baby away with. It didnt make me sad or scared but it made it seem really really real now. Its actually happening and while I looked at these papers it just seemed so weird. I cant explain it. But I am glad, im glad something is finally going to be started and I can start getting a clear picture of what will happen. Its all good news.
