Samaritan's Purse Facing Darkness Returns for Encore Performance, In Theaters April 10th
'Facing Darkness' - Encore Performance on April 10
the moving story of how relief teams relied on their faith and courage
to battle this deadly disease. This event comes to cinemas nationwide
for an encore performance on Monday, April 10, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. local
time, including exclusive behind-the-scenes details from Samaritan’s
Purse President Franklin Graham and Ebola survivor Dr. Kent Brantly about the dramatic life and death struggle as the epidemic raged in Liberia.
Tickets for “FacingDarkness” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com
or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will
be able to enjoy the event in more than 400 select movie theaters. For a
complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website(theaters and participants are subject to change).
Purse had already been working in West Africa for many years when the
Ebola outbreak hit the area. Relief workers, doctors and nurses quickly
shifted their focus to efforts to helping Ebola victims and launching
prevention programs to combat the disease. A few weeks later, two
medical missionaries involved in the organization’s effort in Liberia
became infected. “FacingDarkness”
follows Graham as his team attempts something that had never been done
before – the international transport of an Ebola patient back to the
United States for treatment.
“We had treated our first Ebola patient in Liberia in June,” Brantly says. “On July 23,
I woke up feeling under the weather and was diagnosed with Ebola
shortly thereafter. And I prayed God would help me be more faithful even
in my illness.”
While the world looked for a cure, Graham and his staff were hard at work to find a plane. “The clock was ticking, and Dr. Brantly was
dying,” he said. “Our team worked twenty-four-seven. People didn’t
sleep for days, calling everybody they knew, every contact in the
government. Eventually, we got through to the person in charge of the
medical plane equipped to quarantine deadly diseases. It was God behind
the scenes pulling the strings, pulling the levers that I believe saved
Dr. Brantly’s life.”
“Ebola swept into West Africa with seemingly no end in sight,” Fathom Events Vice President of Programming KymberliFrueh sai
d. “Then Samaritan’s Purse--a symbol of faith--brought relief and hope
to thousands of people. In taking care of these two courageous
missionaries, Samaritan’s Purse highlighted the devastation of the
illness to the world.”
For individuals, groups, families and churches, “FacingDarkness” puts names and faces to the fear and heartbreak that gripped the world--and the faith that stood in its path.
