The Congo (DRC) and Sudan: Mission Impossible

Congo (DRC) and Sudan, The: Mission Impossible

"Recommended. This program demonstrates the terrible problems missionaries face in two African nations and how they deal with them, and does so in a compelling way. It shows the determination and dedication of the individuals involved, facing conditions that are at best difficult, and at worst dangerous." -EMRO Review
What motivates missionaries to travel to some of the most inhospitable parts of the globe, to treat terrible diseases like leprosy, to help those most in need? In this poignant documentary we meet three missionaries: Father Alfredo, who lives in Dondo, a village in the north of the Democratic Republic of Congo; Father Claudino, who also lives in the DRC, in the eastern village of Bambilo; Sister Dorinda, who lives in Marial Lou, a village in Southern Sudan. We learn of their lives in these villages, and come to understand why they have chosen to dedicate their lives to their work. Produced by Journeyman Pictures. 04/08DE JSCA 45 min.
