The making of "Jesu, Meine Freude" for OPEN DOORS
I had the privilege of singing on an album that is being used to make people aware of persecuted Christians around the world. OPEN DOORS is a ministry that gives these people a voice. www.opendoors-de.org
The album is called "Grenzenlos" and is not for sale but is being distributed by OPEN DOORS in the hope that more people will support this organization financially and in prayer.
I was asked to sing the old German Bach chorale "Jesu, meine Freude" for this production and Florian Sitzmann and I were glad to take part. The arrangement, by Dirk Benner is quite tender and emotional.
The video you see here is a part of the CD /DVD package that is being distributed. There are also several interviews with Christians around the world telling their stories of perserverence in the face of persecution that you and I can hardly imagine. And all because they have chosen to follow Christ.
