As FIREPROOF begins Week No. 7 in theaters nationwide, we wanted to take a minute to say thank you to each and every one of you that has helped get the word out about this film. Think of the movies that have come and gone since the September 26 opening of this film—and it is safe to assume they all have had much larger advertising budgets than FIREPROOF!
A little encouragement about seeing this movie can go a long way. Here is a note we received from Pastor J. Mark Fox of Antioch Community Church in North Carolina sharing a remarkable story that began with a word about this movie:
“I write a weekly religion column for the Times-News of Burlington, N.C. This past Saturday I wrote a column entitled ‘Fireproof Your Marriage.’ I got a call on Monday from a woman who read my column and then went to see the movie with her husband. They were separated, neither are believers, and after they saw the movie she called me (I have never met her) and said, ‘We want to know Jesus. And we plan to work on our marriage. I want to know if I should move back in with my husband.’ She and her husband plan to come to the church I pastor, Antioch Community Church, this Sunday! Thank you so much for this wonderful movie. I know God is using it to restore broken marriages and to call His sheep to Himself. May God richly bless you!”
