Transformations: A Documentary
Imagine a community where 92 percent of the population is born-again, where city jails have been closed for lack of crime, and where agricultural productivity has reached biblical proportions.
Journey to four communities undergoing dramatic societal changes as the invading, transforming presence of God alters everything. From a hillside metropolis formerly run by Colombian drug lords to a rural village in Kenya, these thoroughly documented case studies illustrate what happens when God's people petition God to return - and He does!
"This heartening and challenging documentary profiles cities in California, Colombia, Guatemala, and Kenya that God has transformed. The film shows how God is active throughout the world, [showing], as one pastor in the film says, "What can happen when God comes to town." ~ CBA
Transformations II: Glory Spreads
Not long ago, alcoholism, sexual abuse, drug addiction, suicide, violence, and civil war were the prevailing descriptors in the nation of Uganda and eastern Canada's northern Arctic. Things changed when God's people humbled themselves, burned stashes and invited His return.
The devastation wrought by decades of violence, witchcraft, rebellion, civil war, and drug abuse had left a terrible mark. Today, as you travel to the far north of eastern Canada, scores of indigenous communities in this frigid region are experiencing transformation in their families, schools, society and government.
In Uganda people are rising from the ashes to return to the Lord. They hold all night prayer sessions.
Finally, travel across the ocean to Scotland's Outer Hebrides. Hear first-hand accounts of how houses shook with prayer, pubs emptied and sailors traveling past the islands on warships fell to their knees under the convicting power of God's presence.

Let the Sea Resound
In an earlier but not so distant age, the nation of Fiji groaned under the weight of superstition, sorcery and cannibalism. Ancestral spirits roamed freely, promising abundance and demanding their due. Tribal fighting was gruesome. Fueled by revenge and greed, violent warriors devastated entire villages - even whole islands.
Today's Fiji bears no resemblance to its former self. God has supernaturally healed poisoned streams and banished destructive wild pigs that devastated crops. Hear repeated testimonies of how depopulated fishing grounds suddenly swarmed with vast quantities of fish and crabs - too many to harvest - as villagers dedicated themselves to the Lord. Visit a village that suffered for generations under a curse brought on when their ancestors killed and cannibalized one of the first missionaries to Fiji. Watch as the Prime Minister participates in a formal ceremony of apology to the missionary's descendants, resulting in confessions of forgiveness and joy among all those in attendance and cleansing of the water. Today, the village is thriving.
