Have you ever experienced huge losses trials and setbacks to hinder or keep you from doing the will of God? Then this video will inspire you! I have showed this video to many youth ages 12-18 and they loved it. The trials and setbacks endured by the those who sought to advance the gospel will encourage you to stay the course God has for you! Everyone should purchase a copy for your church and personal copy to view and loan to others. It is also highly educational and will introduce you to an entire era gone by.
I do not like giving negative reviews but the dvd had poor quality and poor acting. The story in itself was great but everything else in it brought it way down. We had our daughter and their husband over and they watched it. They are in their twenties. It did not hold their interest and found it boring. I would only give it a 5 out of 10.
I have used this DVD several times in India where I go every year as a short-term missionary. The story is compelling because it is true and continuing in real time as the main characters expand their journey for Jesus in India. This is a good movie for discussion about faith, hope, keeping eyes on the goal, trust in God, perseverance, and commitment. The arrogance of the "establishment," confidence of the chemist about following God's will, faithfulness of the father, clear focus by the boy, and the commitment of the couple to each other over time and distance are all worthy discussion points. Excellent choice.
This was really a good movie. This young man showed lots of courage to be able to leave his home and go far away in order to go to school to learn the language that he needed to have in order to transpose the Bible into his native language.
This is truly a great inspirational story. The quality of the DVD is not the best as the movie is over 20 years old but the message makes up for that. I enjoyed it and it would be a great witness for those who do not yet know the Lord.
