Remembering our friend’s journey a year ago today. Keep on keeping on, Steve Saint!!

“This is the day.

This is the day that the LORD has made.

What do Y O U say?

What People Are Saying About The Walk His Trail Movie Message Series:

I enthusiastically recommend the Walk His Trail Movie Message Series to any pastor or group looking for a fresh way to communicate the eternal messages of forgiveness and sacrifice. Your audience will be riveted by this timeless story of God’s extraordinary power to forgive and transform the hardest of hearts.

Dr. Rober Jeffress, Sr. Pastor First Baptist Church, Dallas

Though the slaying of five missionaries along the Amazon occurred decades ago, the truths and examples continue to roll down through time. God has much to teach us through what our human side sees primarily as tragedy. The Walk His Trail Movie Message Series combines the best contemporary skills to instruct our visually-minded generation with ancient truth through an event more than a half century ago. The format provides flexibility for use before small groups as well as whole congregations. [Walk His Trail is] done well with high creativity.

Wallace Henley, assistant pastor Second Baptist Church, Houston

Walk His Trail: Behind the Scenes Part 2

Bill Oechsler shares “the gift of story” behind a program conceived, designed, and produced specifically for pastors.

Q. Why is it important for pastors to present the Walk His Trail Movie Message Series at this time?

A. While the story may be more than half a century old, it continues to positively impact individuals, families and communities. The Walk His Trail Movie Message Series can align with ministerial programs, cut across cultures and generations and reach out beyond the church to those in the surrounding communities. It’s a way of helping congregations experience this true and incredibly inspirational story in a new way and, perhaps, for the first time. Of course, the real impact of this program will be realized in the teaching and preaching experiences at the local church level.

Q. Does the Walk His Trail Movie Message Series stand alone, or are other resources required?

A. Designed specifically for pastors as a teaching/preaching resource, the Walk His Trail program contains three-parts that can stand alone or work as a complete “movie message” series. Creative and archival assets from the making of the feature film and two documentaries help illustrate and dramatize essential biblically based themes and messages. Of course, we expect some will be drawn to learn more about and dig deeper into the story. For them, there are our three films, assorted videos, books, journals and much more.

Q. What would you personally like people to take away after experiencing the Walk His Trail Movie Message Series?

A. While on a mission trip in the mid-1980s, I met a woman who recounted an amazing story of her life in the Amazon jungle living with the tribe who had killed her brother. Her name was Rachel Saint. Some 20 years later, the ad agency where I worked helped to launch Beyond the Gates of Splendor and End of the Spear. Now, a year ago, I was part of launching The Grandfathers here at EGM. And just recently I accompanied Steve Saint and his son, Jaime, on the Walk His Trail UK Tour. After almost 30 years, the story continues to challenge, inspire and encourage me. I simply desire the same for others.

Walk His Trail: Behind the Scenes Part 1

 Bill Oechsler shares “the gift of story” behind a program conceived, designed, and produced specifically for pastors.

Q. What led to the creation of the Walk His Trail Movie Message Series?

A. The Walk His Trail Movie Message Series was inspired by the true story of five American missionaries speared to death in the Amazon jungle in 1956. We captured the fullness of this transformative story in three films, Beyond the Gates of SplendorEnd of the Spear and The Grandfathers. Our desire is to freely share this incredible story with as many people as possible. We also want to serve pastors by gifting them with a unique teaching and preaching resource based on the story. Finally, we hope that the themes and messages will have a meaningful, lasting impact on those experiencing it.

Q. You are sending pastors a teaching and preaching resource that includes elements from three of your films. Why not just make the films available for event screenings and DVD sales?  

A. The Walk His Trail Movie Message Series explores the themes of sacrifice, reconciliation and heritage. These are especially relevant to biblical teaching and inspirational preaching. It’s really an excellent resource for pastors to share this remarkable story with their congregations and communities. Using Steve Saint as the first person narrator throughout the series only strengthens its meaning and significance.

Q. How exactly is the Walk His Trail Movie Message Series being distributed?

A. We plan to mail a free copy of the DVD-based program to 50,000 pastors in the United States. Again, there is absolutely no cost to these 50,000 U.S. pastors.

Q. How can you give 50,000 copies of the program away at no cost?

A. As an educational nonprofit, EthnoGraphic Media relies on the contributions, underwriting and sponsorships of others. A generous donation made the Walk His Trail Movie Message Series possible. The donor—who wishes to remain anonymous—was inspired by the story and wanted to ensure others could to experience it for themselves.This may be used with permission, credit given to EthnoGraphic Media 2012 www.egm.org
