Writer, producer, director Howard Bell recalls God saying after an unknown actress who had no acting experience filled in and received an overwhelming ovation.  It was by far the most important scene witnessed by everyone there according to Bell.

 "It was divine intervention that helped me not only write the script, but direct the movie as well.  This experience ultimately changed my life and the cast's lives. Each actor was just the right fit for their part, including the children who were cast in the movie" states Bell.

After suffering with depression and being diagnosed with PTSD in 2012, Howard recalls an episode of drunken behavior his son witnessed that changed his life.  He was so convicted that He  promise God if he helped him write this movie (HAV Faith), he wouldn't drink anymore.  

He's done just that and his first faith based movie, HavFaith premiered in August 2016 to a sold out crowd.
