MOVIE NEWS: Living Hope


Have you ever met someone who changed the course of his or her life completely to follow Jesus? In the movie, Living Hope, be prepared to be inspired by several individuals and families who gave it all and got so very much in return – not in money or fame but in the joy and peace of knowing they were serving the living God with their lives, serving the poor and needy, through the ministries of Living Hope in South Africa, where “poor” takes on a whole new meaning.

I had the great pleasure to go to South Africa recently on my way to Kenya for a Christian conference with the non-profit for whom I work. This movie truly shows the heart and soul of the people of Africa and I enjoyed the inspiring stories I saw here.


LIVING HOPE is the story of three extraordinary individuals who have devoted their lives to serving the poor in South Africa. It is a feature length documentary created by the filmmakers behind Journey to Everest, Apostles of Comedy, and Honoring a Father’s Dream: Sons of Lwala.  John Thomas, a pastor who is leading his church to serve the sick, hungry, and dying in the communities that surround them. Journey beside John through the neighborhoods where they work, meet the people their ministry has impacted, and hear from his heart why they chose to make a stand for the poor.  Joey Lankford, a businessman and father of four who moved his young family from the United States to Cape Town. Journey beside Joey as he equips men and women with job skills, and leads them out of the bondage of poverty.  Leonie Rustin, a single mom and nursing assistant, who turned from a life of crippling drug addiction to follow Christ. Journey beside Leonie as she attempts to help other in her community unshackle the chains of addiction and prostitution.
