The Czech “Embassy of the Kingdom of Heaven”

About The Film

Filmed over 4 days, we initially landed in Prague (Eastern Europe) hoping to find a story but blindly praying for God’s leading. We started talking to churches, met a translator, and then asked the translator “who is a Christian we can learn from?” Ludmilla’s name came up pretty quickly. We were only able to spend portions of two days with her, but the impression Ludmilla left on us was incredible. Fun fact: Brent’s wife quit her job because of what she learned and saw of Ludmilla’s life, saying, “I think God wants me to take a step of faith.” So she called her work from The Czech Republic and resigned.”

Ludmilla:
In my lifetime I have experienced the rule of two totalitarian regimes. One was the German Nazis and the second was the Russian Communists. The word of God says 366 times, "Do not be afraid, do not fear." So we weren't afraid. After 40 years of Communism here and the fact that many believers left the country, the Czech Republic has been called the most atheist place in Europe. It breaks my heart. My name is Ludmilla Hararova, I'm 82 years old. I have seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. My husband went to heaven in 2002. The Lord Jesus told me now he is my husband and he wants to continue to use me. He wants me to be his representative, his ambassador. Next to the door of my house there is a bronze sign that says, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Heaven. My home is an extension of Christ's Kingdom. It's a place where people can come and look for help if they're in trouble or have a need. The Bible says the Kingdom of Heaven is joy and peace in the Holy Spirit. That is the atmosphere I want here at the Embassy. The visitors that I get, some of them have called ahead to let me know they're coming and some just come. The ones that haven't called are usually the best ones because I'm not prepared for them. Everything that happens is dependent on the Lord.

Subtitles:
Ludmilla: Want anything? Sima: Oh Thanks. I’ll just have a drink.

Ludmilla:
Today a dear friend came by. She's a widow and her family really are struggling financially.

Subtitles:
Sima: It’s been four years since my husband died. Today, he’d be 70. I miss him.

Ludmilla:
Whenever people enter this house, I just lay everything else aside and spend time with them. I have learned to recognize the inner voice of the Holy Spirit and give him room to use me. The Holy Spirit likes to take control.

Prayer:
Thank you Lord, that you are with us. Help us. We need you so much in our decisions and in our lives. Please lead Sima step by step.

Ludmilla:
Often I listen to myself and I'll say things I wouldn’t even think about. There is no problem to deal with the issues people bring when they come here because the Holy Spirit is here.

Prayer:
I witness your victory in Sima’s family in front of the visible and invisible world. Amen.

Ludmilla:
It's an honor for me to be an instrument of God's love and his wisdom every day. We often don't realize that all believers are called to be representatives of the Kingdom of Heaven. We are all ambassadors. The Lord Jesus didn't choose to do it any other way. He simply entrusted us.
