God Grew Tired of Us: The Story of Lost Boys of Sudan
Well, then in WAITING ON THE LORD post I sum it up to say how the movie has effected my son:
I was so encouraged by my son; he said "You need to buy that movie, no for real, buy two and I want to send one to our President." So, that is what I am going to let my, homeschooled, 15 year old, do. I figure "hey, if you think the president needs to know, how about all your friends too" I think we will host a movie night in honor of the Lost Boys of Sudan.Well, Sunday night we had a MOVIE NIGHT. Yep! Hunter invited his friends from church over and we had 27 people over to watch the movie. We borrowed a popcorn machine from some good friends of our and had a grand old time! We crammed into every free space in my living room and WATCHED, yes teenagers and children (some adults too) WATCHED the film! No cartoons, no fun stuff... a documentary!
We couldn't even fit everyone in the frame:
My favorite quote of the night came from, my favorite 7 year old on the planet, Levi. When his dad asked him about the movie he had been watching he said:
"well actually I loved it it! It was happy, a little sad and funny, and it just changed my life!"
Priceless! He borrowed the movie and by the next afternoon had watched it again. Yep, that sums it up!
Well, I feel like I am beating a dead horse (not that I ever would eww...) BUT I highly recommend taking the time to see God Grew Tired of Us.
