CARTOONS – A LANGUAGE EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND
Your Destiny Your Choice is a unique cartoon website with over fifty free cartoons which has received endorsement by Pop Artist, Guy Sebastian – ‘This website will help you find your destiny and become the person you were meant to be.’
On the home page (http://www.ydyc.org) seekers are invited to either go to a life changing movie called, “Living Free” or a cartoon presentation called, “Your Destiny Your Choice”. Click then on one of the four eye-catching cartoons. Each cartoon poses a question: Searching for answers to life? Are you sure of your destiny? Does anyone really care? Wish you could start again? A 15-page cartoon presentation then seeks to answer these questions and takes the viewer through the necessary steps to learn how they can have a personal relationship with God and be sure of their destiny.
Wilma Watson, a producer of the website, left nursing to pursue avenues to help people to be sure of their destiny for it greatly sadden her to see people die without being sure they were going to Heaven. It was when the kernel of an idea began to form – a website designed to be seeker-friendly, easy to understand, inviting, fun to use, both unthreatening and non-compromising in its message. She chose fifty cartoons for the website as cartoons are a language everyone can understand and enjoy.
A cartoon image also encapsulates a thought that can stay in your mind longer. Phil Spratt, the cartoonist on ydyc.org comments, ‘As the images can linger in our minds it is said that cartoons cause people to laugh for 5 seconds and think for 5 minutes. Cartoons allow you to approach a sensitive subject in a non-threatening way as cartoons are open to interpretation”.
Cartoons are universal, breaking down language and cultural barriers. The website has been translated into Japanese, Chinese, Indonesians, Thai, French, German, and Spanish. People all around the world can now learn how they can be sure of their destiny.
