You know those times when you’d like to find something great to watch on TV but it seems there are very few good options? I really just stumbled onto the movie I want to tell you about here on Netflix.
Sometimes those turn out to be the very best!
A Small Act is an Emmy award-winning documentary. It’s the story of how one woman’s $15/month changed the life of one boy in Kenya and, eventually, a growing group of school children who are getting the opportunity for an education that would have otherwise been an impossibility.
What I loved about this story was the humble little woman who thought she ought to do something – even if she was only able to do a small something – to help children across the world.
I loved the young man’s gratitude that led him to pay it forward to other children in his same shoes.
I loved the way we got to share in the lives of these desperate families. The weight of responsibility that the children carry is unimaginable.
I loved the friendship that has developed between two unlikely people – a Jewish holocaust survivor living in Sweden and a Harvard-educated Kenyan man working at the United Nations.
See this movie. I think you’ll love it too.
As I watched it, I couldn’t help but think of our Adoption Ministry 1:27 sponsorship program, where families are being preserved and lives are being changed through the “small act” of a monthly donor in Jesus’ name.

Could this be your small act?
