We officially began pre-production on May 13th with the Verse Assignment Ceremony. Proverbs 21:14 is our verse, "A gift given in secret soothes anger and a bribe concealed in the cloak pacifies great wrath". What a powerful experience that was. Pictures from that evening as well as subsequent experiences from this journey are attached.
