I'll chime in about Hearing Everett. Since your family is familiar with hearing impairment, I think you would be blessed by it. It's a documentary style, so not like a theater movie, but it tells a true story. One of the sons had lost most of his hearing, and the dad took a short mission trip to Mexico when he was pretty much a brand-new Christian, and on the trip he met a poor deaf boy and found there was nothing for deaf children there, including no Spanish sign language. The mission ranch is the result. It goes through the Everett family's journey as they head into missions, and some of their heartaches along the way as they built up the mission (I can't remember the particulars, but I believe the death of two Everett children is mentioned), so you might want to preview and only show portions to little ones depending on their sensitivity as well as their attention span. Two of the Everett sons (adults now), including Luke who lost his hearing, are sharing off-and-on throughout, and the rest is a reenactment but well done (the guide even says the actor is a very close likeness).hsm wrote:What can you tell me about Hearing Everett? Being we are a hearing impaired family and we have been immensely blessed by the missionary biographies this year, this looks very interesting to me.
I didn't use the booklet but the small group DVD is testimonies from folks who have done short and long missions at the ranch, from young to old, which I enjoyed very much.
