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.
As I See It:
The song “We Are the World” and its theme compassion made people aware of the poor and the sick as does this documentary. Change comes with charity, education, and most important human intervention.
My Opinion Only:
Joel Smallbone’s narration of John Thomas’s Cape Town ministry and people like Joey Lankford and Leonie Rusin whose lives he has touched, noteworthy cinematography, an original score by Bob Farnsworth rendered by the Masi Choir, broadcast a message about poverty. “Even in the darkness of despair, there is hope.”
