A few years back Pokémon GO became the most popular game app of all time. It still is, actually, although it doesn’t get as much publicity now. The premise of the first game to popularize augmented reality (AR), was simple and addictive: Go! Capture! and Train!
When my daughters explained the rules, I said, “Wait! Jesus came up with that first!” In Matthew 28:19, 20, he tells his followers to “Go into all the world, tell people the good news (capture their hearts), and make disciples of them (train them to pass it on).” Why? Because apart from knowing Him (you gotta know before you can go), it’s the most important thing you’ll ever do!
I liked the idea so much, I wrote a short script* about a teenage girl, her Pokémon-obsessed kid brother, and a man who tells them just what I told my daughters. I also got some friends together and shot a 4 minute movie.** Here it is:
