We were crying 'no rain, no rain, no rain', and really there was no rain. Now we are talking flood. Everything is being contradicted.
- Kisilu Musya, farmer and activist, Kenya.
Thank You for the Rain tells the story of Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya who has used his camera to capture the life of his family, and the human costs of climate change.
When I first watched this film, I couldn't speak for a good 10 minutes afterwards. I felt rage and I felt sadness. But I also had a profound sense of hope, I wanted to stand in solidarity with Kisilu, I needed to act.
The film is a rare and personal insight into the realities of the climate crisis and it is a call to action to all who care about God's creation.
In 2021, a year when every moment matters, and every action counts, I want to invite you to watch and share Kisilu's story with your church, your friends and your family. By bearing witness to his life, his struggle and his hope we can stand with him in calling for climate justice.
During 2020, churches, home groups, friends and families watched Thank You for the Rain. Just like me they raged, reacted and were compelled to act. They wrote to their MPs, they signed petitions and they prayed. This film is a great way to share the bigger justice story of the climate crisis with your community.
