Hey guys! There's a documentary premiering here in Austin next Saturday, April 18th at the Galaxy Theatre called Malatya. This documentary tells the story of the first ever martyrs of the Turkish church, Necati Aydin, Ugur Yuksel and Tillman Geske, who died April 18th, 2007 for proclaiming Christianity in a Muslim nation.

The film is premiering on the two year anniversary of the martyrs' death and will be screened around the world thanks to the non-profit organization Voice of the Martyrs. It will be screening in Austin next Saturday, April 18th at the Galaxy Theatre at 1, 2 and 3 pm and runs about 70 mins.

This film was made by one of UT's very own rtf undergrads so the fact that this is premiering around the world should prove and inspire us that we can do the same thing!

Tickets will not be sold at the door! You can purchase them here through the Austin Stone Community Church.

For more info on Malatya you can check out their website:
Or you can check out Voice of the Martyrs and the Austin Stone.

Even if you have no other reason than to support a fellow rtf student you should still GO! It's going to be awesome!
