Beyond the Next Mountain
At the close of the 19th century, the British branded the Hmar people of northeast India as "the worst headhunters." It was a label well deserved at the time. But in 1910, a single copy of the New Testament Gospel of John came into this village and changed the course of history for the Hmar people. Through that single copy of John's Gospel, Chawnga, the father of Rochunga Pudaite, was introduced to a revolutionary "new life in Christ." He and a few tribesmen "forsook all and followed Christ." Chawnga believed that Rochunga was God's chosen instrument to bring the Scriptures to the entire Hmar tribe in their own language.
This is the story of Rochunga's personal pilgrimage. It is an unforgettable saga of his dedication to a vision and of the Lord's direction in his life. Filmed in India, Hawaii, Scotland and America, this beautiful film will be enjoyed by the entire family.

The Cross and the Switchblade
The Reverend David Wilkerson, a Pennsylvania country preacher, comes to New York to aid a group of teenaged gang members on trial for the murder of a young boy. After failing to help the accused youngsters, Wilkerson, refusing to be discouraged, remains in New York in the hope of reaching other slum victims. In time, he meets both Nicky Cruz, the leader of a Puerto Rican gang called the Mau Maus, and Nicky's hated enemy Abdullah, the leader of a black gang known as the Bishops. Through his friendship with a homeless black girl, Little Bo, Wilkerson visits the Mau Maus' headquarters and learns of a forthcoming rumble with the Bishops to determine control of the neighborhood. When the rumble results in the death of one of the Mau Maus, Wilkerson becomes more determined than ever to win over the gang members.
Now in over 25 languages, The Cross and the Switchblade, starring Pat Boone and Eric Estrada, is one of those rare films that has shown its unique power to connect with the deepest hopes and fears of youth around the world. It remains today one of the most compelling stories of love, grace and the truth that no one is ever so far gone that they cannot find the way out.

Her story is wrapped up within one of the most incredible marvels in all world history: how the Christian church survived under repressive atheistic communism in China.
Adopted by a prominent family in Shanghai in 1941, little Sung Neng Yee (Nora Lam) is treated like a princess - until the bombs drop, and the Japanese seize her house. After the defeat of the Japanese, she joins the Communists, believing they are the liberators of China. All goes well until she falls in love with Iam Cheng Shen from Hong Kong and Communist officials decide to break her of any bourgeois tendencies.
During the next few years, in which she marries and has three children, she is subjected to excruciating persecution. She calls out to God for salvation. Miracles follow. She bargains for her husband and daughter’s release to Hong Kong and is sent to hard labor, where she starts agitating for her own release. This is an intimate love story, a saga of courage and an acclaimed inspirational gem.
