Dynamic Women in Missions: Bible Studies

For the last week and a half I have been on location at Rocklane Church in Greenwood, Indiana filming a series of bible studies for Dynamic Women in Missions. Dynamic Women (DWIM) is a ministry of One Mission Society that strives to inspire women to become more involved in international ministry by connecting women with a passion for Christ with other women on mission fields all around the world of OMS.

Practically speaking, this is lived out through the organization of women’s based short-term mission trips to Haiti, Ecuador, Colombia, Spain, South Asia, and Hong Kong (to name a few places they have travelled recently). While on the mission fields, the DWIM teams minister to the lives of OMS missionary women in their fields of service as well as female international partners through a series of bible studies, and other hands on acts of love, that they have developed over their years of travel. “Beautifully Broken” and “The Main Ingredient” are two such bible studies that have had a great impact on the lives of women all around the world.

I have had the privilege of filming the “Beautifully Broken” and “The Main Ingredient” bible studies with Annie in the chapel of the Rocklane Church as well as a series of historic portrayals of biblical women by Gemma. It is a beautiful old chapel that has been recently renovated, which allowed for a great venue.

Bible Study Setup

Our time hasn’t been without it’s challenges. There is major road that runs right next to the church and an elementary school a couple of miles down the road, so we have had buses and heavy trucks periodically interrupt our filming. We had interference with our wireless microphone, which created for an interesting experience trying to come up with a solution. And then last night and this morning it decided to snow (not as much as my friends in Kentucky got yesterday) but enough to make the country roads around the church a bit treacherous till the snow plows came through in the late afternoon, which then posed an annoying audio problem.

But through it all we have persevered and I believe have gotten some great footage of some powerful teaching. I look forward to seeing how the Lord will use what we have done here today. The next step, editing through the hours of footage. I may not make it out of my office for awhile.
