Christafari - Part IV

  • 1999 1 Nov
Christafari - Part IV
From Aruba we flew to Curacao and then Trinidad where we had important meetings with promoters and fellow ministers of the gospel. Then it was off to Guyana and later to Suriname for two weeks of concerts, press conferences and countless radio and television interviews. Our good friend Jim Kleinman joined us for this leg of the tour. He played bass on the "WordSound&Power" album. In South America many more souls were saved for the Glory of God. It would take far too long to express in words the events and mighty works that the Lord accomplished during the rest of this tour.

After our last show in Suriname we decided to stay an extra week in order to film our music video for the song "Warriors". We received full camouflage outfits complete with helmets and boots courtesy of the Suriname Ministry of Defense and headed up into the jungle. We stayed with the Maroons (Or the Bush Negroes as they are called in Suriname) in Abadu Kondre. The video has a story line that I am not going to tell you about (you'll have to see it for yourself). However, I can tell you that in the video we encounter 2 separate African tribes, played by members of the Aulkans tribe. This tribe has an interesting history. Their ancestors escaped from slavery upon arrival in Suriname and fled to the hills. They have kept their traditional African culture, dress and language for over a hundred years. You would swear that you are in Africa, yet the jungle looks more like the Amazon. On the first day of shooting we were filming a scene in the Cotticca River, only to find out later that the water was filled with Piranha. Yikes! Later that day one of our cast members got his knee sliced open with a machete while filming. But besides that, the rest of the shoot went without incident. After we left the jungle and took a ferry back into Paramaribo, we filmed for one day in Capitol City of Suriname and then headed home.

I then spent a week in Los Angeles editing our Music video at Amagin Productions and then headed off to Athens, Georgia. {{Christafari}} headlined the Sozo Festival in Athens and more people got saved. As I am writing this letter we are back in Nashville for 1 more day before we head off to Sao Paulo, Brazil. And the mission continues.... Please remember to pray for us, our safety, the Lord's continued provision and many more souls to be brought into God's Kingdom as we continue to fulfill the Great Commission through preaching the Gospel to every nation. Thank you for your support.
