I was blessed to have a brother of another faith come up to me and hug me, thanking me for the privilege to see the film and gratitude for WSM. He would have normally been at traditional Friday (Islamic) prayers. He shared with me how he understood the Aramaic because it is close to his native tongue (Arabic). He hugged me four times in deep humility and gratitude.

  13. A patient in Health Services began to talk about certain conversations he had with his cousin whom is a believer, and how all of the sudden he is having conversations in his mind about truly believing that there is something higher than him out there. “It became very evident that God had been pursuing him for months before our meeting,” said Gail Heath, a staff nurse, as she and a coworker shared the gospel with him. “His eyes brightened up and he was full of questions about Bible stories and the reason why Christians celebrate Easter the way we do. At the end of our conversation the patient gave his life to the Lord! “
