As I was passing by one of our digital product team areas, I ran into Matt and Howard, whom I have known for the last five years. Howard said, "Miheret, we are releasing dozens of languages of the film Falling Plates this Easter." And he asked me, "would be willing to read the Amharic translation to help complete the project?"
FallingPlates is a 4 minutes gospel presentation in a film which has 4.8 million views on YouTube, and I helped on the closed captioning and translation about two years ago.
Well, I have never done that before, and I am not sure it will be great with my voice for Jesus. :) (That was my response). But I said, "When do you want this to be done?". Howard said, "Now."
So I went to the audio studio and read the narration in Amharic. Finally, we finished recording and editing the four minutes of audio, and posted it on www.FallingPlates.com/AM here is the result on Facebook.
I was not aiming for perfection from what I did, but I know that people who speak my language will find the message fascinating and that God will use it to bring them to His kingdom.
I am sharing this with you to ask you to join me in prayer this weekend as people watch this 4 minutes video, that God will use it to open their hearts to invite Jesus into their lives.
May you have a victorious and blessed Easter. Thank you, Miheret
