It is our prayer that this movie will continue to impact the African Church and challenge them to become a major force in the future by sending people to the mission field; for the harvest is plenty and the laborers are few.

The film is fantastic.  The whole OFM team & supporting crew/cast produced a film which is not only produced/filmed well but is challenging to the church in Africa & across the world.

People were challenged by the message and the quality of the movie. Our thanks to you for making this screening possible which enhanced the message and challenge of our church missions week.

About the only movies we pay to watch in the theater are those made by Christians, or that promote morals. Hands down, this was the best one we have seen. We believe God will use this to not only ignite missions in Africa, but wherever it is shown.

This movie stirred up so many emotions, a gush of memories, it allowed me to see the grace God had on my life to make the same decision Max had to make. This movie gave me a renewed hope for the African Church.
