July Monthly News

Welcome to the July edition of the monthly news! COVID. Fear will be with some of us for a while, I think. At least, I hope enough to keep it in people's minds before we start heading back to what life was like before COVID. I've gone for a few drives with the hubby, and am always shocked at how many people don't keep with the social distancing rules, or wear a mask. Seen many in big groups. It baffles me how easily we forget. Until it's one of our own that gets sick... On a better note, hubby and I celebrated our anniversary very low key.

Heart Of Africa (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE NOW!
NOT RATED.
AMAZON
A Congolese man runs from a terrible accident and finds himself at a revolutionary camp, where he is told that he has a great destiny. He tries to escape and start a new life by going to another town, joining a new religion, and becoming a missionary. Ultimately, though, he finds himself back in the very place he had tried to leave. He must face his fears and his shame—but also his magnificent possibilities.

Heart of Africa is the first full-length, faith-based film to come out of the nascent Democratic Republic of Congo film movement. After decades of colonial oppression and civil war, the country's scars run deep. Cinema is emerging as a cathartic new medium, and director Tshoper Kabambi is a leader of a new kind of revolution: one driven by stories that he hopes will heal the hearts of his people and the DR Congo.





REVIEW: What a film deep in African culture. It was so beautiful to watch and learn about some of it. Having never been to Africa, the scen…
