Rated 5 out of 5Â by Minister Great Movie
Knowing that this film is based upon a true story makes its message all the more compelling. One cannot help but be inspired by the godly example and gospel-centered approach to this missionary's ministry that this film portrays so well. And, one's heart cannot but be touched by its portrayal of the spiritual darkness in the country to which he ministered. The film presents a gospel message; can help to develop a burden for missions and educate the viewer on what it's like to be a missionary; and illustrates the proper role of charitable and compassionate acts (medical, etc.) in the ministry: a role that enhances the gospel and opportunities to present it, but by no means a substitute for it (as if doing acts of mercy alone - without the accompanying gospel - constitutes doing "kingdom work").

My missionary coworker worked with Dr. Dreisbach in the 1960's in Bembereke, Benin. The film was to be part of his life story. We found it to be just a simple part of his story. Not to demean the principles brought forth by this man/film. He stood for right and truth and the gospel. Just a bit short on content to us.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ECinTennessee Touches the heart for missions!
While studying missions with our church teens this film brought to life a mission field of experience and skills used to minister to those in need in a struggling country. Awesome film!
