Faith Like Potatoes

Based on the novel Faith Like Potatoes, this inspiring film tells the story of Angus Buchan, a South African farmer who suffers a series of seemingly insurmountable losses, but through an unlikely friendship with his Zulu farmhand and divine interventions, discovers the key to healing himself and learning to accept others lies in his unwavering belief in the power of faith.
This is not a Catholic movie... And if it were, there would be significantly more depth, but the movie does have a strong Christian message and is worth viewing....

Be aware that the movie starts off a little slow, a little dry, and the acting is questionable at first, but hang tight, it becomes well worth the wait.

Hey Deacon Pat,

There are a number of things that strike me about the movie. One, you are correct, it is not the most interesting movie in the beginning and the overall quality and acting is, well, not sure if I was not aware of the content, I would get popcorn and sit at a theater. Knowing that it was "real", that the events took place recently, (2006) that...made it exciting for me! "Ordinary" people doing "extraordinary" things! The more interesting thing on the DVD is really the documentary. I would encourage any readers to not only watch the movie but to take the time to view that as well.

Angus Buchan is alive, well. teaching. preaching and changing the world! He is on Facebook and I will include a link here, that has another great witness, and people can then navigate to the main page and become a fan, if they so choose.

Just like Angus Buchan, you, I, and many other people, "ordinary" people, are called to do "extraordinary" things for Christ! We are in a time where we need more people, simple folk, who are willing to listen to the Lord and step out in faith! We indeed need...Faith Like Potatoes!

In Christ,

Bro Jer
