2008: WESTWARD! building a new life…by God’s design.

Key Verses
For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire” 1 Corinthians 3:11-15.

Drama
The drama follows the story of a group of settlers as they begin a new life for themselves in the west. The settlers experience numerous setbacks from both natural disasters and human interference…if only they could figure out who the bad guy really is! The “voice of God” narrates each day, allowing the audience to catch a glimpse of the events and people from God’s perspective.
