Ends of the Earth

A documentary exploring faith, calling, and adventure by weaving together true stories of MAF pilots—past and present—who strive with missionaries and local believers to take the gospel to the most remote places on earth.

Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years

Great character is sometimes forged amid great turmoil. Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years is the story of how God’s love transformed an ambitious, atheistic hedonist into one of the greatest Christian women of the 20th century. The film opens with Sabina Wurmbrand risking her life to show Christ’s love to a trio of Nazi soldiers. Why? Why would a Jewish Christian risk her life to help her enemies – members of the army that killed her entire family? Experience the amazing true story that has redefined the concepts of love and forgiveness for millions around the world.
