A Classic True Missionary Drama
Winner of “Best Film of the Year” Award from Christian Film Distribution Association.
In 1732, 2-young Moravian Missionaries left their comfortable German community of Hernhut, convinced that they were called of God to bring the Gospel to the slaves in the West Indies. They went, were willing to become slaves if necessary to minister to an oppressed people.
The Moravians pioneered a Mission movement characterized by an extraordinary commitment. Under the dynamic leadership of thee Count Nikolaus Von-Zinzendorf, the Moravians sent out more missionaries in 20 years than all the other Protestant groups had in 200-years. They are driven by 2-very strong convictions:
World Evangelization is the number one primary obligation of the Church
That every member of the Christian community has same responsibility
First Fruits unfolds the many sufferings which these two-young men had to endure for their Missionary zeal and the agony of their small community in deciding to send them forth at a time when missions to heathen masses were unthinkable among most Protestants. You will especially marvel over the “first fruits” of their ministry and the impact of their historic vision on the course of future Christian generations.

A Classic True Missionary Drama
Filmed in the unspoiled jungles of Southwest Pacific, Peach Child dramatically portrays the startling reaction of stone-age people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Don and Carol Richardson respond to the call of Christ. Careful preparation for their mission and a journey by dug-out canoe bring them to a remote rain forest inhabited by some of the world's most primitive people. Painstakingly, they learn the language only to be shocked when the story of Judas' betrayal of Jesus makes him a hero to a people whose highest attribute is to be masters of treachery.
When inter-tribal warfare breaks out, the battles continue until a warring chief offers his son as a means of bringing peace. This primitive tribal custom makes the Gospel so understandable. Many lives are changed. A Church appears.
Peach Child is an exceptional movie that blends ferocious inter-tribal betrayal and warfare with expert cinematography where true Christian compassion triumphs. All this is portrayed in a dramatic re-creation of a real classic missions success story, based on real-life events.
*Note: This film contains some brief nudity in the native fashion.
