雅各书 1:6-8 只要凭着信心求、一点不疑惑.因为那疑惑的人、就像海中的波浪、被风吹动翻腾。这样的人、不要想从主那里得甚么。心怀二意的人、在他一切所行的路上、都没有定见。

你品尝过吗?这时赞比亚的电话来了,挂了;又响了一次;又挂了;我坚持到尾片字幕出现;呀,居然把真人真事一家的照片,死去孩子的照片,妹妹夫妇,黑人主角原型的照片都登了上去.....

土豆需要大量的水,牧师也劝他,说信心和愚昧在一线之间。但安格斯不是失去理性,他只是不依赖理性的判断。他的理性选择了放弃判断而信靠上帝的应许,他将150亩地都种上了土豆。南非全国的农场主,都在观望这一场见证。电影中挖出土豆的那一幕,实在像安徒生童话。不过安格斯的确在那一年,收获了南非仅有的一批土豆。

她说:一个人独处时,是最放松的,因此,最容易受到罪的诱惑;夏娃是在独处时才受蛇的引诱的......

这批土豆让他彻底翻转。他买了一辆20吨重的奔驰超长型四驱货车,可以放下一面做讲台,装有音响以及灯光。他开着这车,全国巡回见证、布道。他在农场设立孤儿学校,收养了几百个祖鲁人的孩子。每年,他还在农场举行一个叫“Mighty Men”的特会,意思是有信仰的男人,才是有力量的男人。这电影获的奖也很特别,叫做“亚当奖”。多少因为这部电影,特会一年比一年人多。2009年4月,20万男人来到平安农场参加安格斯主持的弟兄会,学习做一个真男人。

回到家里,一个人,有些斗争在心里;因为,前天又到东门买了二十多张碟,二百多块钱,居然当时没有犹豫,过后又开始自责起来;告诫过自己不要再买碟了,外面还有那么多人没有饭吃;我有了犯罪的感觉!

James 1:6-8 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

在本期活动中,有一批慕名而来的特殊来宾——来自桂林某大学服装设计专业的师生们。因着黑玛亚文化的美好传播与影响,他们是借着来深圳参观学习的机会,专程赶到“黑玛亚花园”……此时此刻,一位带队的老师表达了真挚的感动与心声:“这部电影带给我们很大的启发。我们的人生就像土豆一样,一定会经历一个埋在土里的过程。只有经历黑暗才能迎接阳光,才会开花结果、实现蜕变……在maia's我们感受到的是,每一位工作人员的脸上都洋溢着发自内心的笑容,这里的每一个角落都散发着爱的气息”

收割的季节终于到了,安格斯与他的黑人领班一起,开始挖掘土豆……他们看到的是——此生他们所能见到的最大、最好的土豆!

If you want to know why the movie name is Faith like potatoes, and what the 3rd miracle is, you’d better watch it by yourself. I am sure you will be satisfied by it, and I believe that God will also speak to you through it to build your faith. So,

However, when God wants to build someone’s faith, He tests the man through some seemingly disasters. In this movie, God allowed one trunk accident take place, and in the accident the farmer killed his beloved nephew. The accident drove him crazy and lost his faith, he was in depression and kept on blaming himself. Thankfully, God rebuild his faith. And finally, God did the 3rd miracle for him.

That brought the 2nd miracle, through prayer, he demanded the dead woman stand up in the name of Jesus, and it happened. Based on these experience, the farmer found his life purpose, and he decided to sacrifice himself to God and serve God.

5:16-18 所以你们要彼此认罪、互相代求、使你们可以得医治。义人祈祷所发的力量、是大有功效的。以利亚与我们是一样性情的人、他恳切祷告、求不要下雨、雨就三年零六个月不下在地上。他又祷告、天就降下雨来、地也生出土产。

In the last 7 years, I watched several times of this movie. Every time it touches me a lot, and it brings many questions about myself: how should I deal with my emotion in a right way, how to get well along with my families, the people around me, and especially those people seems like a little lower than me. The most important point is about Faith. How can I hold on my faith and trust God only? How can I pray with faith without any doubt?... … Miracles only happen when you believe that God will do the impossible things for you.

1997年,南非遭遇罕见的干旱,“圣婴”现象肆虐,农夫纷纷破产。安格斯已是兼职的传道人。他翻到一句经文,“这称为我名下的子民,若是自卑、祷告,寻求我的面,转离他们的恶行,我必从天上垂听,赦免他们的罪,医治他们的地”(历代志下 7:14),决心租下当地最大的体育场,呼吁农场主们,一起来为这个国家的种族矛盾认罪、祷告,祈求上帝的赦免与祝福。
