Drive-Thru History: Ends of the EarthPosted: April 13, 2020
I wish everyone a joyful Monday. I wish everyone in Hong Kong a peaceful Easter Monday holiday. It is great to watch some good videos while staying at home, isn’t it?
What is Drive-Thru History: Ends of the Earth?
TBN.org: Hosted by historian and filmmaker Dave Stotts, Drive Thru History: Ends of the Earth takes viewers on a twenty-episode, global trek to every corner of the earth, to show how God has used ordinary people throughout history to take His saving grace to every nation and people.
Dave Stotts: the final chapter of our trilogy investigating the impacts Jesus life throughout the 2,000 years since and his salvations reach as the prophet Isaiah wrote the better part of 3,000 years ago to the ends of the earth.
Metropolitan Cathedral, Mexico City
I traveled to Mexico last May to join our partners to meet customers. I visited Mexico City and spend some time at Metropolitan Cathedral, the oldest and largest cathedral in Latin America. It is Amazing!
In Episode 5 Latin America, Dave explained how Christianity was introduced to the Aztec empire in the 16th Century, how Spanish turned Tenochtitlan into Mexico City, and how they destroyed Templo Mayor to make room for the new Metropolitan Cathedral.
Churches in Tokyo
It was an unprecedented quarter one. I spend some time in Tokyo and met some potential partners. I was fortunate at this difficult time.
I visited some churches in Tokyo on weekends. Most of them were closed to mitigate coronavirus spread. Nevertheless, it was a great experience to see them just from outside. They were peaceful and beautiful.
