The Story of Amy Carmichael

Almost a year ago Tim Challies posted a dvd review of this film about Amy Carmichael and her work in India. I watched it yesterday and then posted the following to Challies' website. All of his dvd reviews can be found here.
This past Christmas I asked for and received this dvd based upon your mention and review of it. I had been unaware that such a film existed about Amy Carmichael. I grew up reading and learning about her life in India and even passed along her story to an Indian friend who was able to travel to the Dohnavur Fellowship several years ago.
I took the time this afternoon to watch the dvd and I really enjoyed the simple and straightforward presentation of the film.
The men and women, including Elisabeth Elliot, interviewed spoke so highly of Amy and her work, but yet it is her humility and love for Jesus Christ that is most evident.
This place, the Dohnavur Fellowship, is clearly a Christ-centered ministry that exists soley to provide care in Jesus' name for those who come to it with various needs.
My heart rejoiced over the sincere service that these men and women are providing as they spread the Gospel in India through their work amongst the children.
What a blessing it is to see God's word in sign and song throughout that place.
Thanks for writing about this dvd, it is one that I will treasure and further recommend.
