  4. Film and record yourself.

  5. Edit the footage (add text animations, etc.)

Send a Video in a Facebook Message

  1. Send a friend your “Before and After” Video.

  2. Include on of the following blurbs:

    • Hey! I just made this video that shares a bit of my story. I’d love to hear what you think. Is there any part of my story that relates to you?

    • Hey! My friends and I are making videos during winter break to share our stories of what God’s done in our lives. I want to hear honest feedback from you on what you think about it. Could you watch it and let me know what you think?

    • Hey! Hope your winter break is going well. Could you watch my Before and After video and let me know what you think?

  3. Follow Up Questions:

    • If they didn’t respond…

      • Hey _______! I was wondering if you had a chance to watch my video? What did you think?

    • If someone responded…

      • That’s awesome, thanks for your thoughts. Would you say there was one part that you related to more than another?

      • Thanks friend! I’m curious what you would say if you were to rate your desire to know God on a scale of 1-10?

      • Thanks! If you could pick your own words to describe your spiritual journey, what would they be?

      • Thanks! Something I’m doing with this video is hearing where my friends are at with their spiritual journey. If you were to rate your desire to know God on a scale of 1-10, what would it be?

  4. Continue the Conversation. Keep sharing more of your story and try to get to sharing the gospel or asking if you could give them a call over the phone, Facetime or Google Hangout to share a bit more about how you came to know God personally and hear more about how their summer is going.
