Movie Night

Tonight we had some of Eric's students over to watch Courageous.  Much of family life in Africa is a mess.  AIDS, drunkenness, polygamy and poverty have wreaked havoc on the family.  Many children are growing up without fathers in the home.

After the movie, the men testified that they were challenged and encouraged by this film.  Despite a language barrier (too bad they don't have Swahili subtitles! lol!) they got it...even the "Snake King" part... :)

I believe this film and Fireproof have great potential to be a strong encouragement to the husbands and fathers here.  We look forward to more movie nights! :)
