The Grandfathers DVD EGMfilms

From Sacrifice to Reconciliation, a young Man 
Discovers his Heritage in The Grandfathers.
Description:  EGM Films is pleased to announce the release of The Grandfathers, a motion-graphics film about the struggle and influence of a young man’s heritage. The Grandfathers completes a trilogy that includes End of the Spear and Beyond the Gates of Splendor. These first two films, also from award-winning director Jim Hanon and producer Mart Green, tell the unforgettable and inspiring story of the killing of five missionaries by an indigenous tribe, deep in the Amazon jungle. The impact of this tragic event lives on today, in the families of these slain men and among those responsible for their deaths.

My Review:  The Grandfathers is the third dvd in the mission trilogy that chronicles the lives of the five missionaries who gave their lives to reach the Waodani tribe. 
I've had the privilege of viewing End of the Spear and Beyond the Gates of Splendor.  So was happy to review the third and final dvd in this trilogy.  All of the dvds have been inspiring and informative.  If you read the book, Through the Gates of Splendor, like me, you may have followed the lives of the five missionary families who went on to follow through in the work of reaching the Waodani tribe.  
This dvd The Grandfathers was a grand conclusion.  The word, forgiveness, stands out in this dvd.  This is not a story it is a documentary given mainly by Jesse Saint the grandson of Nate Saint, the airplane pilot whom the Waodani speared to death.  Jesse is the son of Steve Saint who encouraged his family to continue to interact with the Waodani tribe.
The word grandfather is basically "nonexistent" in the Waodani tribe . . . in this dvd the word grandfathers is explained and the usage of 'grandfathers' is used by the Waodani tribe.  I found this explanation fascinating!
This faith lifting "story"  gives new meaning to reaching out to people for Christ.  Jesse tells of the life of his aunt Rachel Saint and of her continued work with the Waodani peoples.
The journey, the struggle, the legacy. . . don't miss this inspiring conclusion!

  1. End of the Spear was powerful.

  2. Years ago when I was a young teen I read Through the Gates of Splendor and vaguely remember seeing a film on it. I'd love to update myself on the story so will look into this trilogy. Would hurt if I read the book agian either.
