Free Movies and Lessons

This last Sunday, The Beautiful Mess gave out free movie tickets for it's service project.  We wanted to offer a way for families to enjoy some time together and hang out.  So we rented out the theater showing the Lorax at the Gateway Mall.  It was a packed crowd and awesome time as we got to love on people who we had sometimes never met.

Here is a couple of cool stories.
1.  I got a call the next day from a lady who is living with her kids and boyfriend by the river here in our city of Eugene.  She wanted to know what else we were doing and where we were doing it at.  The conversation ended with her planning on coming and hanging out with us this next Sunday.  Praise God.  I can't wait to get to know her.

2.  A guy who had been staying at the mission was given the opportunity to invite his family to come to the movie with him.  Even though he has no where for his kids to stay with him, his ex and kids and aunt came and watched the movie together.  One of my friends had a conversation with him and the man told my friend that "this is the best Fathers Day ever".  
I'm so excited that this guy got to spend time with his kids.  He was able to feel like a father and love on his kids.  It was beautiful to watch.

Funny thing is the movie was about planting a seed and that's what God has called us to do.  We are to plant the seed of the Gospel.

I leave you with a couple of great lines from the movie.

  “It's not about what it is, it's about what it can become.”
Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

And finally a picture of Betty White because she is awesome.
