Ganti Karir Setelah Menonton Film “Tell the World”

October 30, 2016 - Adventist Review

Seorang dokter, anggota jemaat Advent dari Brasil, mengubah karir setelah menonton film ‘tell the world’, dan memilih pelayanan dibandingkan gaji. Film memang bisa meninggalkan kesan yang kuat, namun jarang bisa mengubah jalan kehidupan. Paulo Victor Benicio de Moraes, 27, Advent sejak lahir, berasal dari Rio de Jeneiro, Brazil, mengatakan bahwa hatinya tersentuh oleh kejujuran dan keterbukaan hati dari para pionir, seperti yang ditunjukkan dalam film. Dia meneruskan, film ini adalah jawaban dari doanya. Ada cuplikan yang benar benar telah merubah arah kehidupannya, yaitu pada saat James White dan Ellen sedang berbicara dan Ellen mengatakan, ‘saya mengerti adalah tugas yang suci untuk tidak saja menjaga kesehatan kita tapi adalah penting juga untuk mengajarkan orang lain bagaimana mereka menjaga kesehatan mereka’.

The conversation between two cofounders of the Adventist Church prompted Benício to rethink the direction that he was taking in his professional life. He had planned to specialize in otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat), a decision that he linked to salary. But now he will pursue clinical issues, which he said would be more useful in sharing biblical concepts of comprehensive health with patients.

“I only have a month left before my first residency examinations, when I am supposed to choose the specialty where I will work for the rest of my life,” Benício said. “The movie came as God’s answer to my prayers.”

Benício said he also hoped that his new career path would make him better suited for volunteer mission trips.

“I have decided to become a promoter of the biblical lifestyle taught by the Seventh-day Adventist Church since its origins, using to this end my talents and knowledge wherever I work,” he said.

“Tell the World,” which was released in Australia in August and has been featured in chapters on Brazil’s Novo Tempo television and elsewhere, premieres worldwide in its entirety on Sabbath, Oct. 22, the 172th anniversary of the Great Disappointment of 1844, the event that triggered the film’s plot. The chapters and the 2-hour, 34-minute film are also available on ARtv.
