About the Author
EXCEL ENTERTAINMENT is the preeminent independent film distribution company in Utah, and though largely known for its Mormon-themed films (God’s Army, The Work & the Glory series, 17 Miracles, Pride & Prejudice, etc.), Excel has also had success releasing films with non-Mormon themes and stories (Forever Strong, Saints & Soldiers, etc.).
Although the technology and means by which audiences consume films is changing rapidly, the demand for highly creative storytelling that motivates us to live up to the light that each of us has been given is as high as ever. We feel a deep obligation to not only bring stories of hope to the world, but to promote films with high standards of craftsmanship reflective of a belief in a divine and benevolent creator.
Every Youth/Teen Should Watch This Film
by Roger - reviewed on December 03, 2014
If you know anyone who is considering serving a mission but either feels like they are giving up too much or they are inadequate in some way, this film may very well help them make that key decision to serve a mission. It was filmed over several days towards the very end of David's mission and documents his decision and the result after having served his mission faithfully. He is a great example for youth to follow in so many ways. When it seems like the only news about missionaries in the media is when there is a tragedy. It actually scares my daughter when she hears those stories. This was a great way for us to experience the positives of serving a mission and help her see the wonderful opportunity it is to serve the Lord full time. Well worth watching with kids and young adults of any age in my opinion.
