Machine Gun Preacher
Mark, Gabe (my 7 year old) and I were EXTRAS this past Tuesday in a movie being filmed called "Machine Gun Preacher".

How fun is that??

This movie is based on a true story (and a book). The real Machine Gun Preacher is Sam Childers. His story/website is here: http://www.machinegunpreacher.org/

It's an amazing story.

Anyhoo...while we were there, for 12 hours I might add, there was a scene filmed that was a sweet little girl singing "Amazing Grace". I have NEVER heard a child sing the way Rhema did! The hardest part was to sit there in complete silence (with 200ish other extras, cast and crew) until the director said 'cut'! God surely did give her a beautiful voice.

Check out her music video here:

Yes, it was an exciting day..... We had to be on the set at 6:30 a.m. (did I mention I'm not a morning person?). By 1 p.m. or so, Gabe had decided to take a nap, right before Rhema sang. My worst fear was that she'd be in the middle of her song and Gabe would wake up...crying or whining about where he was! Oh my. That would have been embarassing. He didn't wake up though...through two 'takes'. And the assistant director (or 'AD' as they are called) came and sat with us for awhile...asking Gabe how he broke his arm and such. Everyone on the set was respectful, kind...nothing at all as I imagined a movie set would be. Not to mention getting my hair and makeup done several times throughout the day!

Very cool Smile

So, when MGP comes out next year, look for us! We'll be in the church congregation where Sam Childers (played by Gerard Butler) gets saved!

Blessings!

She sounds happy about her experience which is lovely in itself.
