Tomorrow is release day! April 16, 2013
This DVD is about an actual place through Embrace a Village, a ministry to those with leprosy disease and their families in India. Embrace a Village, a Christian non-profit organization based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, exists to help transform the lives of leprosy victims and their families: Our mission is to bring Jesus Christ’s message of hope and healing. To achieve our vision within each leprosy colony, we raise the standard of living for leprosy victims across India and help them to help themselves integrate back into mainstream Indian society through relief projects, education and spiritual ministries. Embrace a Village is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible. You can learn more at embraceavillage.org. The story is fictional, but with a strong message of courage, love, and compassion. Ethan, Luke, Alé, Ryder and Catherine are five friends connected by their strong faith. After graduation, they each set out to make a difference in the world for God. Their ambitions are high, their passions are strong but will they have the courage to fulfill their calling regardless of what comes their way? The sacrifice they are asked to pay may just be too high. Through godly wisdom from an outside source, the group realizes that this is not their time after all, it’s all His! Come along with these new graduates as they discover who they are to be, rather than what they are to do. This is God's time as we yield our lives to Him, and allow Him to do through us.
What I liked about this movie is the interaction between the characters facing hard things:
* separation after being together as they each begin their paths after graduation
* standing up for Truth in decision-making values
* the uncertainty of being accepted to grad school
* grieving loss
* being fired from a job to find the ultimate job by giving for the good of others
* being able to reveal and talk about true feelings
* building trust
The movie flows very fluidly without gaps, and is viewable by all ages. Color, 104 minutes.
