"May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering! Praise the Lord! We finally posted this video!. It took Mike Atnip and I about 4 years to put this all together. Years ago I was inspired by the testimony of the early Moravian missionaries through Paris Reidhead's sermon, "Ten Shekels and a Shirt.". After hearing of their incredible dedication and bravery I began to research them further. The more I read-- the more impressed I became. I felt this testimony had to be made known so I wrote the article “The Moravian Mission Machine. “ Soon after the article was published the Lord put it on my heart to make a video documentary. I had never done something like this but I felt the Lord telling me to do it. So, With the help of Mike Atnip, my wife and my children I took my home video camera and began to make the video. It is my prayer that their testimony will inspire others too. And most importantly it is my prayer that the testimony of these early Moravian Missionaries would inspire others to go further in devotion and service to Christ. We serve a creator God and what He does today man not look exactly like what it did in the past. Nevertheless, I believe that if we would take the Moravian zeal and radical devotion and put it into practice today, the world would be a different place and God would be glorified. ~If you would like to donate a small amount to help make future radical Christian testimonies available that would be great.

Now.... a summery of the documentary--- On Christmas Eve, 1741, the Moravians founded Bethlehem, PA. The brothers and sisters there lived communally. The main purpose of this community was to provide the funding and training to send missionaries out to the Indians. This is the exciting story of a people giving all for Christ. This color video documentary tells the story of the Moravians from their exile from Bohemia through their time at Herrnhut with Count Zinzendorf and their missionary journeys. As mentioned, it particularly focuses on the community at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The Moravian missionaries had more success in their missions to the Indians than did most other groups. I pray, “Do it again Lord, DO it again!”
