Adoption of Rinah // Andrew and Carissa
I saw this last winter and haven't been able to get it out of my mind. There is not much I care to do with my life, but adoption is always at the top of that short list. I love that this young couple (married only a year or so) just did it.

Surprise Adoption // Meredith Dennis
I can't even tell you how many times I've watched this video. I'm probably responsible for half of its views. Again, a young couple following the example of the Father heart and adopting into their home.

Uganda23 // Unparallel Media
Unparallel Media (a film-making team headed up by my brother from another mother, Ben Hull), in partnership with The Ugandan Water Project, spent the past eight months working on this short film. I'm biased, I know, but I also see my fair share of water-need related material in my line of work. This is great work.

Jacob's Story // Unearthed Pictures
This is, hands down, the best piece of communication I have seen regarding the sex-trafficking industry. It is a story of brokenness, redemption, and the root problem of the industry and mankind.

God With Us // The Village Church
Again, I'm biased, but I can't watch this without choking up. God. With. Us. Unbelievable.
