The General Conference’s Geoscience Research Institute has released Spanish, French and Portuguese versions of its popular Living Waters film, in the hopes it will be a witnessing tool for Christians worldwide.
Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth premiered at the 2015 General Conference session in San Antonio, Texas, and is part of a series that has already been viewed by millions around the world. Filmed in Canada, Bermuda, Polynesia, Mexico, and the United States, the documentary celebrates the beauty and brilliance of the biological systems that make life in the oceans possible.
“We are delighted to have versions of Living Waters available and without charge in the most widely spoken languages in the Adventist Church after English,” said Dr Timothy Standish, senior scientist at the Geoscience Research Institute. “It has been an honour to be part of the team that produced the film and these translations.”
Funding to make translations freely available in all three languages came from the General Conference Faith and Science Council, with Dr Standish saying the objective was to make the film as widely available as possible to anyone else who is interested in the beauty and design evident in God’s creation.
“Living Waters has a proven track record in the hands of believers as a tool for bringing people to Christ,” he said. “The potential of the Spanish, French and Portuguese translations is only limited by the willingness of those who choose to share it with native speakers of these languages.”
The film’s release is in anticipation of Creation Sabbath, which falls on October 27 this year. Plans are also underway to release more faith-affirming films on the 27th of each month for streaming through the Geoscience Research Institute.
The Spanish, French and Portuguese versions of the film can be streamed directly from the Geoscience Research Institute website at grisda.org, while an English version is available as video on demand from http://go2rpi.com/living-waters-intelligent-design-in-the-oceans-of-the-earth-video-on-demand/.
