An excellent and very interesting documentary of how these aid workers survived by relying on their Christian faith. It challenges your faith and really makes you think how you would survive in such circumstances. Definitely worth watching. Excellent value for money, too.
I purchased this DVD, as this is the type of items I enjoy, however as someone mentioned earlier, it was more of a newsreel and not the best of quality. I actually got bored. I've watched about 30 minutes of it and 2 weeks later have not yet finished it and not sure I will.
My knowledge of this geographic area is intense due to my own work with orphans and my husband's deployments to the region, so I always go into documentaries and books with a skeptical eye. I have not one criticism of this documentary. It was well put together, provided exceeding examples of the situation in Afghanistan, which years later is very much in the same state of turmoil, and challenges the viewer to care. I cannot say enough about the work put into this piece. I would also like to add that, although dealing with a very violent and graphic region, I was able to use this DVD with my class on contemporary issues because it is able to convey the seriousness of the subject without using overly graphic imagery. I recommend this highly for tweens through adults.
As I watched the DVD, I found it to be repetitive and very sad. The story was more like a newsreel. I expected to see times when they sat and ate, prayed and displayed hope. The fact that they were not killed is astonishing and can only be described as a miracle.
