Celebrating Exit 316

Monday last week marked the end of the season for Exit316 - 41 episodes shown over a ten month period, with two more that will be aired in the Fall to round it out to 43 episodes. This represents a WHOLE LOT OF WORK by a whole lot of people.

But the impact has been great! With viewership at around 150,000-200,000 each week,
many people here in Czech saw God's Truth displayed in a contemporary and compelling fashion. There were over 230 small groups across the country that met each week to discuss the episodes, and we know of many decisions for Christ as a result of this.

So this called for a party! On Saturday the main team who wrote, directed and produced Exit316 came to our house for an afternoon and evening of celebration. We played, ate, talked, laughed and enjoyed time with each other. But also took time to talk about the impa
ct of Exit, as well as to honor and thank each person who worked so hard on it this year. talk about what's next. Czech Television has asked us for another season of episodes in 2008-09 so the team is praying, thinking and brainstorming about what it could/should be. Pray with us please! This is a strategic opportunity to impact this country for Christ. But we know that it will only have impact if the Lord is behind it. So we're waiting on Him to know the plan.

P.S. I don't know why that last paragraph ended up being bold...I keep trying to change it in the editing feature on Blogger and it won't change! So maybe it needs to be bold because it's the most important part of this post!


  1. Connie -

    I am so sorry about the lack of contact with dave and you since august, how slack of me.
    Things are going well being married and living in England, there have been lots of ups and downs but God has been so good.
    Marriage is a funny thing but so worth it.
    I would love to talk to you some more.
    Hope things are well in Czech maybe we'll pop over someday.

  2. Connie,

    How cool to have the "star" of exit 316 at your house. Of course, you are all of the stars for making that show a reality. So cool to have been in Czech for the first episode and now it's almost over. Please keep us up to date on what is next as I know it will be a wonderful synergy to what Exit was.

    And I must say, the summer haircuts on the boys (and Claire too) look great!
