I watched the trending Gospel movie of the week “The Train: The Journey of Faith” last night and trust me it’s nothing like any other movie you have seen before. I mean, I have always loved Mount Zion Films and I am a big fan of their productions since childhood but this one had me in deep thoughts, tears and laughter all at the same time.

You should have been there to see how deep it was for me, because at one hand I was laughing at the funny scenes and mysterious acts of young Abayomi and at the other hand, I was battling down my emotions as to whether or not to let the tears that had gathered in my eyes freely flow out.

At certain points, I got up from my bed, picked up my journal, paused the movie and replayed most of the scenes just to write down some of the revelations and lessons caught while watching the movie.

It’s a MUST WATCH for everyone!
