"I am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing." (John 15:5) It is our desire to always abide in JESUS CHRIST, our Lord and Savior, and to bear much fruit...hence "Fruitbearers."
"The fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, and SELF-CONTROL. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23

DVD Review and Giveaway: Captive
Captive is based on a powerful true story that changed the life of Ashley Smith (played by Kate Mara) forever. On March 12, 2005, Brian Nichols (played by David Oyelowo), an escaped convict who already killed 4 people, held Ashley hostage in her own apartment for 7 hours. Ashley, a widowed mother who's a meth addict, lost custody of her daughter, Paige. When faced with the life & death situation as a captive, Ashley, by the grace of God, ironically broke free from her drug addiction that kept her captive for years. Unexpected miracles unfolded as hours ticked away. When she read The Purpose Driven Life out loud, God softened Brian's heart and made him think about his life's purpose. Brian thought of his newborn son. Difficult decisions had to be made.
I really enjoyed this gripping film from beginning to end. Excellent performances! Two broken people encountered one amazing God! This is a remarkable story of redemption, faith, hope, transformation, choices, and purpose. Nobody is beyond God's saving grace! I highly recommend this DVD!
