“Patience of Job” صبر أيوب 
SHORT FILM in Arabic

August  25, 2020

Dear Partners,

As you know, we have been continuing to pray for and pursue the goal of producing “The Patience of Job” صبر أيوب a SHORT FILM in Arabic.  We launched a fundraising campaign in early 2020 and then the pandemic hit and we have been on PAUSE for a time.  We did have some generous donors give to the project and we are happy to say that we have $2,000 to go towards this project.

The screenwriter we were working with has stepped aside for personal reasons.  We have found a new Arabic translator that has recently drafted the opening chapters 1 to 3 and we are excited about this project again as we get feedback on the beginning of the script.  

Pray for us that we can smoothly move the Arabic translation over into a visual screen-writing format!  That is not an easy creative process and we want to do it excellently.

The images you see in this newsletter were created some years ago when we drafted a teaser during our Summer Animation Project, they will likely NOT be the final visuals in the film but we do feel more and more convinced that animation is the right way to go with this important project!

Why NOW?

  • The suffering in the Arab world is intense and real!
  • Job is a story of many probing questions, current questions about good and evil and why is there suffering?
  • This story exposes the tactics of the enemy, Satan, and now more than ever we need to speak these truths openly!  Our battle is not against flesh and blood.
  • Muslims and Christians alike are simply not aware of this narrative, they have general ideas about it but don't know the details of this struggle, now is the time to educate audiences about this crucial story from the Bible!
  • And finally, in the words of Job 19:25
“I know that my redeemer lives,” 
This is a powerful story of redemption, now more than ever we need redemption!

Would you prayerfully consider helping us reach our $25,000 goal. Initial donations will go towards completing the translation and screenplay! We have adjusted our funding goal from $50,000 down to $25,000 based on changes in our strategy, the hard times of Covid19 and an animation focus.

Thank you so much for your prayers and persistent investment in SABEEL MEDIA.  This is truly a test of our PATIENCE in seeing this project come to life, we will continue day by day!!
