After a year’s hiatus, Mark Drama Australia are pleased to announce that we’re open again for business!
Over the last few months, MDA has been monitoring social distancing restrictions hoping for more opportunities for gospel proclamation through the Mark Drama. We continue to long for the world to cry out humbly like blind Bartimaeus and seek mercy from Jesus to follow him. But while social distancing has been strict and limiting, it’s not been possible to perform the Mark Drama without diluting the authenticity of its gospel story.
However, now that vaccines are rolling out across the country and social distancing is lifting, we are cautiously optimistic to go forth under the sovereign hand of God’s grace and relaunch Mark Drama productions where possible.
In God’s kindness, NSW has already seen to productions with full-house audiences. Dubbo Presbyterian and Moore College rejoiced to see the gospel hope re-enacted during the Easter season, and new requests have come through in VIC and WA for the next 6 months.
Of course, we’ve all become accustomed to last minute changes, border closures and snap lock-downs. So while we are inviting you to make enquiries and begin organising Mark Drama productions again, we cannot boast in our plans for tomorrow and depend upon the Lord’s will to succeed (James 4:13-17).
Please continue to pray with us for God to be glorified during this plague. May many bow their knees in humble adoration of our God who came to serve and give up his life for many.
