Meet Deborah Drapper

Deborah Drapper a thirteen year old girl from Dorset England, has a sincere and inspiring passion for God and for evangelism.

BBC filmmakers spent over 100 hours with her last summer for a one-hour documentary which they aired earlier this month. They didn’t find what they expected!!!

TV critic Benji Wilson writes in The Daily Telegraph:

Whatever version of the fish-out-of-water conceit the producers were hoping for, what they got was far more compelling. They got Deborah. Steely-eyed and still, she was sensational. When we first met her, the producer, Linda Brusasco, asked, “Do you have a TV, do you have a mobile, do you watch The X Factor, do you go to Topshop?” and she replied, “No, no, no… and no.”

Deborah then bit right back, asking the producer, “Would you consider yourself to be a good person? Have you ever told a lie, stolen anything, used God’s name in vain, coveted anything?” It was a “yep” to all. “So you’re a lying, thieving, coveting, blasphemer… Do you still think you’re a good person?”

Something to chew on there, and credit to Brusasco for including Deborah’s comeback. This film’s strength was that while it could have sneered at Deborah, instead it just observed her.

    Out of the mouth of babes. Here questions do seem similar, verbatim for The Way of the Master with Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort. Maybe she attended a meeting? Anyway, nothing against her. Rock on!
