The Right Thing is the story of Ken and Elaine Jacobs, and their 30-year work with the Tsotsil people of the Chiapas highlands in southern Mexico. I filmed and edited this 22-minute video, including on-location footage from the dedication of the Bible in the Chamula language, as God's Word is presented to the local people in their heart language.
Here is a 3-minute excerpt from this video:
Ken Jacob's brother, Dave, thought Ken was crazy to dedicate his life to Bible translation. But Dave read the story of Mariono, who was lost without Christ. Ken's brother had brought the gospel to Mariono in southern Mexico, and Mariono's story helped Dave realize that Christ could change his life, as well.
My daughter, Elizabeth, was chosen to play the role of Annie in a nearby community theatre production of the wonderful musical. This is an excerpt from the production.
