My Review & Some Notes:
Matthew 25 was stated at the start of the documentary.
College Grove, TN was mentioned in this movie too. That is where Joey Lankford was from. This is a town close to Nashville, TN. Deuteronomy 31:8 – Let Him have my life and He will direct it. Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood, TN mentioned int his documentary. I noticed he wears a Tennessee Vols Sun visor in the documentary.
King of Kings Baptist Center formed Living Hope

I enjoyed learning the Living Hope Ministry in this documentary.
I think it would be awesome to go on a mission trip.
Watch this documentary and get moved by it and feel like you are a part of this mission field in South Africa.
