Description

YembiYembi: Unto the Nations — This moving 30-minute documentary tells the story of an American family’s journey from a comfortable life in San Diego into groundbreaking missionary work with an isolated tribal group in Papua New Guinea. Follow them as they prepare for this epic adventure and witness how they adjusted to a culture so different from their own. Through the work of evangelism, church planting, literacy education, and Bible translation, God used these ordinary people to bring transformation to a culture. Experience the joyous celebration as the YembiYembis receive the completed scriptures in their own language.

David Livingstone: Missionary Explorer to Africa — In the early part of the nineteenth century, Africa was called the dark continent. One man’s passion for Christ would change that view. Dr. David Livingstone took the Gospel to Africa in word and deed. As a medical doctor he treated the sick, earning him the necessary trust and respect to teach the love of Christ which many Africans freely embraced. Then Livingstone turned his attention to exploration, seeing this work as much a spiritual calling as traditional missionary work. Facing danger and sickness he forged routes deep into the African interior, sparking the imagination of many who would follow. Hailed as one of the greatest European explorers of all time, Livingstone’s commitment and eventual martyrdom helped bring an end to the slave trade and opened a continent to the Gospel. Discover the story of David Livingstone and see how faith and sacrifice can change the world.

Candle in the Dark — He sailed to India in 1793 with a reluctant wife and four children to bring the message of Jesus. There he encountered so much hardship it is amazing he didn't abandon his mission and go home. But he stayed for over 40 years. One issue that tormented him was sati—the burning alive of widows when their husbands died. He would not rest until this practice was stopped. Facing insurmountable odds, he "plodded" on to influence the abolition of sati and to become the revered "Friend of India" and "Father of Modern Missions." He oversaw more translations of the Bible than had been done in all previous Christian history combined. Life was never easy for Carey. But he simply refused to quit, even when a devastating fire destroyed years of his literary work. His legacy has inspired countless others from his own day to the present. William Carey shows dramatically how a life dedicated to God and obedient to His calling can make a profound difference in the world. Starring Richard Attlee, Lynette Edwards and Julie-Kate Olivier. A Christian History Institute Production.

Through Gates of Splendor — One of the most gripping missionary sagas of our time. Five missionaries went into the land of the savage Aucas. Their offer of friendship was rejected, and the Aucas killed the missionaries. Elisabeth Elliot, wife of one of the martyrs, her daughter and Rachel Saint would not give up and eventually lived among and brought the Gospel to the Aucas. Through Gates of Splendor is an effective demonstration of God’s grace at work during an unforgettable moment in modern missions history. [Caution: This DVD contains original film footage of Auca natives shot by Nate Saint which includes some brief nudity.]

Journey into the Unknown — Hanneke is working as a child psychologist at the courthouse in Amsterdam. One day she is convinced that she has heard God's voice to give up her job, leave everything behind and move to Mongolia. Mongolia? She did not even know where to find it on the map! This is the start of a long journey with seemingly no end. Mongolia is one of the coldest countries in the world. The majority of men are alcoholics, causing violent behavior and disrupting family life. Hanneke now lives in Mongolia, giving of herself to those who need it most. She has left everything behind to pursue her calling and journey into the unknown. That unknown brought her into direct contact with struggling and broken lives. We live with her through moments of great triumph as well as heartbreaking failure. One viewer describes it as "an experience of humanity at its most basic level."
