The movie shows what is going on in South Africa and how people are being used by God to help others. It talks about how Mother Teresa once said that you are not doing the right thing by saying that you want to serve people because they are poor or hungry…you need to serve them to know the love of Christ. That is so true!! If you’re only serving to make yourself feel better, you really need to check that and make sure that you are doing it to help others!
I love the stories that are included in this documentary. Things about different types of people, but all with one goal…sharing the love of Jesus! I wish we could all help in doing that all over the world. Thanks to Edify Media Inc. for letting us watch it, and post about it. And thank you to Living Hope for doing what you are to help these people…and show God’s love!

It looks as though they are involved in plenty of community outreach programs as well as Healthcare initiatives. Sounds like an excellent Christ based organization.
It is great to see people making a difference. Some don’t realize what simple things can do for others.
I admire people who go to other countries to serve the poor. Blessed are they.
