We CAN: Change the world with this movie!
In May and June this year, Compassion toured 58: The Film across Australia. Did you get the chance to see it? If you did, you will know it has the power to change lives!
In short, the film tells the inspiring true story of the global Church in action, from the slums of Kenya and the quarries of India to the streets of New York. It’s a journey that confronts the brutality of extreme poverty and introduces those who are already living out the true fast of Isaiah 58.
Your response to the film premiere blew me away! Thousands of you came out to see it, and countless more decided to hold your own screenings of 58: The Film in your churches, small groups and communities.
If you haven’t seen the film already, now’s your chance! Watch the trailer below and then find a screening near you, or register to host a screening at your church or youth group. Everything you need can be found at www.live58.org.au
Trust me, it’s a message worth spreading!
Matt Darvas, CAN National Coordinator
“58: The Film touched our church’s soul. The captivating way the stories of real people unfold highlights the stark realities of poverty. The despair and desperation is painted accurately and sensitively, drawing you into the harshness of everyday life for so many hurting people.
“But beyond this, the way the local Church is highlighted, and then proven, as the hope of the world for these people is inspiring to say the least. We were not left hamstrung by the inequalities of this world, but engaged and equipped to make a difference. I was inspired to give more, read my Bible more, speak up more and, most importantly, pray more and get desperate for God's love to reach every heart across this planet of ours.”
—Jack O’Brien, Child Advocate and member of Goodlife Church, Newcastle
