Winter Shine – Orlando, FL

Many of you know that the girls have been working with an organization called Actors, Models, Talent for Christ (AMTC) for the past few months.  We’ve spent a lot of time in Chicago for coaching and preparation for the event that we are now attending in Orlando.  There are “hubs” all over the country that have prepared a class of performers to display their gifts in front of as many as 200 talent scouts and agents from all over the country and from various fields within the industry.  The event is called “Shine”, and it’s the potential launch pad for talented Christians to enter the mission field of the entertainment industry.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

The girls have prepared songs with the help of their respective music teachers, monologues, stand-up bits, and are prepared for cold reads and improvisational events.  Today and tomorrow, we’ll be going through final dress rehearsals.  Then on Tuesday the Showcases begin and the girls will no longer be performing for their coaches and friends, but for these industry professionals.

It’s a little stressful, but we feel blessed that we’re able to  give the girls this opportunity.  If nothing comes from it, then they are both completely happy to continue to perform with their school choirs and drama clubs.  I’m certain there will be other opportunities in the future.

I’ll post additional updates as the week unfolds. Please keep the girls in your prayers that they may have the courage to let their light “Shine”!
