Bernard and Jeremiah
Marvin Washington is very frustrated with evangelism. It seem like no one ever listens to him... all they ever do is laugh! Bernard thinks that Marvin needs to hear the story of Jeremiah, another person who had trouble getting people to pay attention. Through the experience, Marvin starts to understand what it means to be faithful.
