Candle in the Dark shows dramatically how a life dedicated to God and obedient to His calling can make a profound difference in the world. William Carey set sail for India in 1793, with a reluctant wife and four children in tow. His motto? "Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God." He braved unimaginable obstacles, preaching the gospel for over 40 years. He oversaw more translations of the Bible than had been done is all previous Christian history combined! Learn how Carey earned the title "Friend of India" and why we call him the "Father of Modern Missions"! Starring Richard Attlee, Lynette Edwards and Julie Kate Olivier. Approx. 97 minutes.
