Don and Carol Richardson respond to the call of Christ. Careful preparation for their mission and a journey by dug-out canoe bring them to a remote rain forest inhabited by some of the world's most primitive people. Painstakingly, they learn the language only to be shocked when the story of Juda's betrayal of Jesus makes him a hero to a people whose highest attribute is to be masters of treachery. When inter-tribal warfare breaks out, the battles continue until a warring chief offers his son as a means of bringing lasting peace. This primitive tribal custom makes the Gospel understandable; Lives are changed and a church appears. Filmed in the unspoiled jungles of the Southwest Pacific, Peace Child dramatically portrays the startling reaction of stone-age people to the Gospel. Approx. 30 minutes.
If you're not up to reading the book (shame on you if you aren't) then watch the dvd. The Prairie Bible Institute of Don and Carol Richardson was a very different place when they went than it is today and, at the time, was one of the best missions-prep schools in North America. Don and Carol's story is compelling and inspirational, particularly for those who have an interest in missions.
