About Living Hope
LIVING HOPE is the story of three extraordinary individuals who have devoted their lives to serving the poor in South Africa. It is a feature length documentary created by the filmmakers behind Journey to Everest, Apostles of Comedy, and Honoring a Father’s Dream: Sons of Lwala. John Thomas, a pastor who is leading his church to serve the sick, hungry, and dying in the communities that surround them. Journey beside John through the neighborhoods where they work, meet the people their ministry has impacted, and hear from his heart why they chose to make a stand for the poor. Joey Lankford, a businessman and father of four who moved his young family from the United States to Cape Town. Journey beside Joey as he equips men and women with job skills, and leads them out of the bondage of poverty. Leonie Rustin, a single mom and nursing assistant, who turned from a life of crippling drug addiction to follow Christ. Journey beside Leonie as she attempts to help other in her community unshackle the chains of addiction and prostitution.
Take a peak at the trailer:
Living Hope isn't just the name of this film, it's the name of an amazing organization in Cape Town, South Africa that is working to show Jesus to those who are hurting. Unfortunately, there are many, MANY, hurting in Cape Town from all sorts or things...poverty, disease, drug addiction...and the list goes on. I can't begin to relay how moving this film was to watch. It's amazing what sharing God's love with others can do...not just by telling them, but by serving them and helping them.
This is a beautiful documentary that I highly recommend watching. It'll move you to do more to help those in need as it has my own family. After viewing this film, my daughter asked if we could donate to the Living Hope ministry, which I think is an amazing idea. :-)
The Living Hope DVD can be purchased on amazon.com for $9.99.
