It’s been an epic journey, and as one chapter ends with the final public release of the film, the next chapter begins as the African church takes this tool and uses it to mobilize the next generation of African missionaries.

Our family on the red carpet, at the cast & crew premiere of The Distant Boat!

The past month has been filled with 3 premieres for different audiences, TV interviews, and a big missions conference where we officially handed off the movie to about 300 African pastors and church leaders.

The response has been incredible. Pastors weeping. Theatres packed. And a strong sense of God’s sovereign hand who used a bunch of nobodies and did something amazing for His glory.

You’re probably wondering where and when you’ll be able to see this.

Well, it’s today. Right here. Here’s what you need to do…
