What Would You Do if Opportunity Came Your Way?

Brian Ivie has made films since he was little.  He dreamed of being a director like George Lucas, Stephen Spielberg or Ron Howard.  He and his friends would get together over the summer to remake their favorite films.  These were great memories growing up! 

So in college Brian got to study his passion at the University of Southern California in their prestigious film school.  Life could not get any better right?  Enter his roommate Ted a bigger than life Christian.  He had an enormous influence on Brian, his roommate’s life.  They would attend Campus Crusade for Christ but this did not really have an impact on him.

So what could impact Brian in his walk towards Christ?  A film project that Brian needs to do for school.  What would he focus this film on?  An article in the Los Angeles times caught his attention on a drop box in South Korea.  Soon an idea for the film took shape.  This drop box is used by a Pastor Lee to help unwanted babies.  How could this possibly change Brian’s life?

My Thoughts: 

My mother gave me the copy of the audiobook to listen to of Brian Ivie’s story.  This story was narrated by Brandon Batchelar.  He did a great job narrating this story.  He illustrated the passion of Brian Ivie well and his journey to following Christ. 

Sometimes you never know where the journey might take you.  What is your destiny?  How could God use your experiences to help others?  In the Drop Box a film was used to teach Brian Ivie what a big God can do.  I don’t think that we have seen the end of Brian and his journey.   

What could God do for you?
