The DROP BOX in Theatres!

Two Years Ago when our documentary, BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here?, was chosen as the Best Sanctity of Life Runner-Up film at the 2013 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, the winning documentary was The Drop Box, and its finally in theaters for 3 nights only! We encourage all of you to make the effort to support Christian documentaries - plus, a portion of the film's proceeds will go to support the global orphan care fund.  This film is beautifully pro-life.  Prepare yourself to understand more about how God views children.

The Drop Box Film:

The Drop Box tells the story of South Korean pastor Lee Jong-rak and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect the most vulnerable members of society. It is a heart-wrenching exploration of the physical, emotional and financial toll associated with providing refuge to orphans that would otherwise be abandoned on the streets. But The Drop Box movie is also a story of hope—a reminder that every human life is sacred and worthy of love.

South Korea is not the only country grappling with the issue of orphan care. Around the world, there are more than 150 million orphans waiting for forever families to call their own.

Focus on the Family and Kindred Image are committed to equipping viewers with the tools they need to advocate for these precious children, whether through adoption, supporting an adoptive family, or raising awareness of the plight of orphans.

Because in the end, building more “baby boxes” is not the answer. Rather, we must work toward a day when they are no longer necessary, when all human life is embraced for its inherent value and purpose.

Pastor Lee would be the first to agree: “I always pray that there will be no more abandoned babies in this country and no more in our baby box. That’s all I want.”
