Rapid Truth – Recording Has Begun

I’ve lost count of the number of times people have asked me for the Rapid Truth evangelism stories we developed several years ago.  I was always sorry to disappoint them because we still hadn’t managed to get them recorded.  Now the recording has begun!

Over the 3-day Water Festival holiday in November, I was able to assemble my new team of Cambodian storytellers and begin the recording process.  Three of the storytellers are from Preah Vihear province, 6-hours away and only recently trained in storytelling.  The other 3 guys are from Phnom Penh and surrounding areas.  We did storying workshop activities for the first day to enhance their skills, learned and practiced 3 stories over the next day and a half, and spent half a day in the recording studio.

It seemed like a lot of effort to get just 3 stories recorded considering that there are a total of 13 Bible stories and 13 Cambodian style stories, but we’ve finally rebuilt a team and made a start.  The next recording session won’t be until February but we will be able to get through more stories more quickly as they will pre-learn the stories before we get together.

A highlight for me was to see Piset from Baset village suddenly go from an average storyteller to a great storyteller, as well as receive incredible encouragement from spending the 3 days with other young guys who are passionate for God.

Please pray for the wisdom, strength and the arranging of schedules to be able to complete the recording of all the stories before the middle of next year.  Pray also for the 6 guys who have formed the storytelling team for this project: Pitou, Dang, Tinak, Sotheary, Piset and Laksmi.

Watch a clip describing the Rapid Truth concept back in 2009 when I thought we’d have it completed by last year.  🙁  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WnPDa0jqw8
