100 million Filipinos spend 1-3 hours a day on commuter buses. Can you transform this time? Matthew Watts

Transforming Your Commute

What do you do on your commute to work? 100 million Filipinos spend 1-3 hours a day on commuter buses. Cru staff in the country dreamed of a way to utilize that time to share the gospel with those commuters. They prayed, trusting God for a breakthrough, and He answered in a wonderful way!

Mark, a Filipino staff member, has a friend who works for MagnaVision. She is passionate about spreading the Good News through media platforms and wants to help distribute inspiring short films. MagnaVision is working with the Philippine government to upgrade the viewing experience of those 100 million who use commuter buses daily.

Last September, 10,000 buses from 38 companies had TVs and DVD players installed by MagnaVision. MagnaVision also is supplying the DVDs to be played on all of those screens, and they contacted Mark to get the content.

That means that 10,000 screens will be playing our short films for the viewing pleasure of a captive audience of millions of viewers!

They specifically asked for: Falling Plates, Venia, My Last Day, La Búsqueda, In Time, Loneliness of One and the Sermon on the Mount. You can view these films yourself by visiting www.globalshortfilmnetwork.com, or you can watch Falling Plates below.

Mark’s prayer is that the Holy Spirit will speak to the hearts of these commuters and that they’ll start taking simple steps to know more about having a relationship with Jesus.

Using online communications options like Skype, the Filipino staff team has developed a discipleship system (which they’ve dubbed “Skypleship”) in order to help interested commuters learn more about having a relationship with Jesus.

Falling Plates is a 4 minute film about life, death and the love of a savior.
