 We had a special visitor John Wason and his wife Shelly at Mt Albert Baptist Church, in Auckland New Zealand. He told the Book of Ruth in a special way with different characters.

John and Shelly live in Canada, and having lived there before, I have a special liaison with them.

Word To Life Theatre Arts is storytelling with purpose, passion, and presence.
Word To Life Theatre Arts was launched in Tauranga, New Zealand, in 2004 by John Wason.
Word To Life is a development of John’s previous work, Out Of Silence Mime Theatre, which began at Youth With A Mission’s Academy of Performing Arts in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, in 1994. Word To Life also reflects the wide experience John gained while working offstage with Theater & Company, Kitchener, Ontario and onstage with Devon Williamson & Tonic Theatre, Tauranga, New Zealand.
With a background in expressive mime, dance, and theatre, John brings the influences of these disciplines into his work. John endeavors to tell God’s story, and the stories of His people, in fresh ways.
John and his wife Shelly continue as full time staff with the international organization Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and live in Victoria, BC, Canada with their sons Timothy, Daniel, and Jeffrey.
