In less than a week Providence will be releasing to AMC theaters in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Charlotte, Tulsa, Destin, and Jacksonville. It doesn’t seem possible that our little silent movie love story is getting a real theatrical release. Who would have imagined? Certainly not us.

I remember when we were working on post production, it seemed like everyone else was working on intense issue driven movies. They were all making bold statements with their films, and here we were making a simple little love story without dialogue. I was feeling so discouraged thinking that what we were doing wasn’t worthwhile enough. So I went to God and asked if we were just wasting our time, if we had misunderstood Him and if we were supposed to be making a more powerful sermon driven movie. And God spoke clearly to me. He said, “The world needs a simple little love story.”

So we continued on with our work, giving it our all, doing our absolute best, but knowing that we were creating a specialized product for a niche market. We did it as an offering to God, trusting Him to do with it whatever He chose. When the movie was complete, we looked at our options. On a whim, we submitted Providence to AMC Independent. And the rest, they say, is history.

We have no idea what will be the response to the theatrical release, but, again, we’ve given it our all, done our absolute best, and we’re trusting God to take it from here. Aready we have witnessed miracle after miracle as God has taken Providence in directions we never could have foreseen and spoken to people through it in ways we never could have imagined. And the great thing about it is that so many others have been able to join us on this wild and crazy ride and have been witness to all these miracles as well. I am humbled by the many people who have prayed us through this journey. i rejoice that already God has used the movie to bless numerous individuals. And I eagerly look forward to whatever the future holds and all that God will do with our simple little love story. Thank you all for joining us. Hold on tight, the adventure is just beginning and I can tell already that God has some simply amazing things in store in the weeks and months to come!
