I am partnered with Gospel of the Kingdom Church Ministries in Lahore. During my third trip to Pakistan we filmed these interviews in the new Sewing Centre to share news about this work for people interested in the plight of women and girls, especially Christian girls, in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
This is a project that I can whole-heartedly support as I know the character and integrity of the Church leaders behind this project.
I can also vouch for the spiritual impact of this ministry having seen the progress in Anika's life over the two years I have known her. You can see more of her in the main film, Hope Trip Pakistan, here on Vimeo.
When we first entered the cellar where the Sewing lessons take place, there was a power cut and the humidity steamed up all the camera equipment. When power returned, for the love of our sisters we let the fans run which really messes with the sound.
I know it is not ideal, the way we handled the translation. I would prefer to transcribe the interview and then cast a suitable voice over artist to speak the translation. Next time.
