This is a rare, and only look at an actual time of ministry en plein air, as I don’t want a person distracted by a camera while I minister to them. I was already filming when this dear Jewish lady came to my easel. She agreed to be filmed, not knowing what we would be talking about. Even after I began telling her about Jesus, she did’t seem uncomfortable as the camera moved about. This video clip is 3 minutes of a 30+ minute conversation.

I often begin ministering from Matthew 25:14-30 (Parable of the Talents). I use these scriptures because the act of painting is a clear display of talent and it gives me an opportunity to talk to others about their talents. As this occurs, the Holy Spirit helps me turn the conversation toward God and how He wants to use their talents.

The ultimate objective, of course, is to pray with the person to receive Christ if they’ve not already done so.


Once again, we’re looking at the parable of the talents. This parable is very effective because many people are unsure of what talent God has given them or their purpose in life. Even for those who recognize their talents, most are unclear on how God intends for them to use them. Either way, ministry happens.

I wrote this poem, then modeled and animated in Lightwave 3D software.
