Jeremy Camp, Nick Vujicic in new film on suffering
From the producers of Lost Boy: The Next Chapter, winner of eight international film festival awards, comes Hope for Hurting Hearts, the new film from Harvest Ministries. Featuring narration by Dr James Dobson, Hope for Hurting Hearts tells the true stories of how Greg Laurie, Cathe Laurie, Jeremy Camp, Nick Vujicic, and their families dealt with times of extreme suffering, how they each stood at a "spiritual crossroads" marked by challenging and painful circumstances, and how they each chose the road of trusting, following, and glorifying God.
Everyone has to deal with crises in life, including Christians. And sometimes, the reality of life can seem unbearable. Greg and Cathe Laurie experienced incredible heartbreak at the unexpected death of their eldest son in 2008.
Since then, the Lauries have been sharing their story of hope in God and eternal life in heaven. After Dove Award-winning Christian musician Jeremy Camp tragically lost his first wife to cancer, he wrote the hit song, "I Still Believe". And Nick Vujicic, born without arms or legs, is the President and CEO of Life Without Limbs, a non-profit organisation dedicated to sharing Nick's life-changing message of hope found in Jesus Christ.
An innovative web-based world premiere screening with Lifeway Films is planned for July 10-14. Churches, small groups, and individuals are all invited to participate. Audience members will be encouraged by these intensely personal and intimate accounts, which give a glimpse into God's perspective on suffering, and declare that there truly is hope for hurting hearts.
