Justin Nye Summers, director of a documentary in production "The Baseball Bond: Our Real-Life Field of Dreams," said God is nudging him forward to finish his film that follows a team of fathers and their sons as they compete in the Father & Son World Series. To date, he received four calls from film producers offering to help, but Justin is worried they will take the religion out of the film, and so he's seriously considering finishing the project himself, reports Christian Newswire.
Texan resident Summers recently launched a gofundme page and released the documentary's new movie trailer.
Inspired after watching "Field of Dreams," Summers decided he has to search for his grandfather and unite him with his father, Miles, to save their own relationship. Going with the name, "George Summers," he got from Miles' adoption certificate, Justin goes on an impossible search, which starts a chain of events no one expected, including learning about an unknown NASA connection.
"There were never any voices like in the Hollywood movie featuring Kevin Costner, but the further I dug into the past, the more the signs started pointing into the real reason for the search and my true purpose," noted Summers, who has a writing degree from the University of Houston.
"You can't make this up. I was practicing on an empty baseball field when this stranger walked up and I noticed his shirt. The shirt is important because just the day before, I was about to give up finishing the movie, but I decided to let God work it out for me and I gave a quick prayer that if he wanted me to continue, to show me a sign," Summers states on his funding page.
"This guy walked up wearing the exact shirt as Shoeless Joe in the movie Field of Dreams!"
Summers said his prayer was answered in less than 24 hours, and that he made a quick video about the experience to share regarding the mystery man.
Summers, who has tried and failed to give up finishing 'The Baseball Bond: Our Real-Life Field of Dreams,' said that in every attempt, he "sees another sign from God that pushes" him a little further forward.
