Loosely based off Brother Andrew’s autobiography, God’s Smuggler (and I MEAN loosely!), young Bible smugglers have to move the Word of God from their base and across the country of Russia while avoiding the secret police force.
It’s been several years since we got to make a video with our cousins, so this year we decided to make a new one. The night before, we introduced them to the classic game of Underground Church, but tweaked the rules to support a smaller number of players. The game ended up changing so much that it needed a new name: Bible Smugglers.
The game is similar to Underground Church in that you have to avoid detection while accomplishing a task. Only instead of trying to get every Christian and a sympathetic cop into a designated church location, the Christians must smuggle fifteen Bibles (note cards) from the start to a location of their choosing (only four Bibles can be held at a time). If they’re caught, they’re sent to jail and their Bibles are confiscated and return to the beginning. The goal is to deliver all the Bibles safely to their destination.
We took this concept and decided to document it in movie-form.
