AN NRT MOVIE REVIEW
Living the Mission
Documentary Living Hope gives an honest take on what it's like to live out Christ's call on our lives.
 



The documentary Living Hope chronicles the work of a mission in South Africa and the effect it has had both on the people of that region and the people who have devoted their lives to it. Showing firsthand the blessings of living out Christ's call to minister to the least of these, the film is an effective reminder both of the blessings of being submissive to Christ and of living our lives in service of others.

Joel Smallbone (of for KING & COUNTRY) effectively narrates the film. He's got a natural "voiceover" voice that adds personality to the events. Michael W. Smith also serves as a familiar face featured in a few segments. Neither overpowers the people onscreen though, which is appropriate given the themes of the film.

While these stories mirror many others told before, they remind each of us that our stories are each our own, even if they reflect similar experiences of others. Whether it's the strengthening of the family who relocated to South Africa to be a part of this mission or the stories of the locals whose lives and eternities were saved through Christ's work in this mission, it's hard to come away from this not inspired.

The Bottom Line: Living Hope is a thorough presentation of living out Christ's calls to love our neighbors and an honest portrayal of what that really looks like.
