This is a News Edition of Iparana Studio.
Let me introduce a cartoon character I am
having fun developing - a branch from a coconut tree! I don't
really have a name for it yet, but if anyone has any ideas let
It's interesting in Revelation 22:2 it mentions
the leaves of the Tree of Life are for the healing of the nations,
and in Psalm 1:1-3 the righteous man is compared to a tree planted
by streams of water which yields its fruit in season and whose
leaf does not wither - It's a picture to us when our lives are
planted by the living water flowing from Gods throne - the living
water Jesus gives (John 4:10-13) we too can be a tree that receives
nourishment and that brings life to those around us and healing
for the wounded of many Nations, this is Gods will for the lives
of His people - to be BLESSED and to be a BLESSING - agents of
reconciliation and healing in a world of brokeness and pain.
During last summer the Lord had been speaking
to me the Scripture, "Ask of me and I will give you the
Nations as your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Psalm 2:8" Since then I began praying about this, wanting
to know what it means and what should be my response. Then last
October I had an idea - to send out free pictures by email to
those who want to subscribe, at the time I thought at least I
would give it a try and see what happens - and so began Picture
Iparana Studio was first sent out as black
and white artwork, and then progressed to colour using computer
painting program to prepare pictures. The encouraging feedback
and enthusiasm from subscribers from around the world helped
me understand I am starting to see this scripture being fulfilled
- I don't know exactly yet what the Lord has in mind, but I need
to keep seeking Him for what this scripture means for the rest
of my life.
The latest development - I am hoping to make
Iparana Studio into a full colour book containing pictures and
messages covering one year, at this stage I need to gauge the
level of interest for the project and also need your prayers
I have not finalised a price but hope to make it available at
a reasonable price.
It's an unusual project - but God willing since Iparana Studio
hopes to reach it's first birthday there would hopefully be enough
pictures to make a book. Also I am thinking about making a Picture
Weekly Calender - So if you have suggestions or like to express
an interest in ordering please get back to me.
May I also share this for prayer for what
I believe the Lord is showing me.
Working with Youth With A Mission means I am in an unpaid position,
as staff I need to raise my own support. While I am looking to
do the possible by selling cards and artwork I am also trusting
the Lord to do the impossible....let me share some of the things
that I believe the Lord would want me to develope.
Animated evangelistic cartoons - I have an
idea of developing a Christian Cartoon company - The challenge
to create cartoons which have an impact and appeal worldwide,
to produce cartoons which are unashamedly Christian in content
yet so entertaining that even non-Christians are eager to watch
Producing animated films and cartoons requires
the right equipment and it's expensive - below are just some
of the items required maybe even more - but the Lord will provide
according to His will - He knows the way He wants to bless the
project, I would be grateful for your prayers this.
