Freetown DVD Review & #Giveaway

Caught in the middle of a brutal civil war, six Liberian missionaries in Monrovia flee the widespread violence in their native country. Their destination: Freetown, Sierra Leone. With the help of local church member Phillip Abubakar (Henry Adofo), the missionaries make the difficult journey, only to have their troubles compounded by a rebel fighter bent on killing one of their own. Based on incredible true events, FREETOWN is a thrilling and inspiring story of faith, hope and survival.

REVIEW:
Incredible.
This story is about African missionaries overcoming the odds and spreading the word of God. The odds in this case, are the Rebels. Unpredictable, feeding off fear and being trigger happy, the Rebels generally shoot first and ask no questions. Lucky for some of the missionaries, specifically one man in particular, has the respect of some Rebels and even has a bit of a reputation. At times, this man has saved other missionaries lives, just for being somewhat known.
After watching this film, I really valued my life and where I come from. These amazing people, though terrified as they wee, still stepped into harm's way to do what they thought was right. Really, what's not to admire about that? Also, hence my slight embarrassment over how easy we have it here and that we generally take it all for granted.
A truly inspiring film, though not one for children.

  1. I haven't heard of this movie. It says it's a true story, and it seems to be fairly contemporary? Looks like a good one to check out!
