Land of the Morning - Missions Series


Date:1957
Length: 28m
Missions Visualized, Inc. Lloyd E. Young, (producer) ; Department of World Missions, Evangelical United Brethren Church, (producer) ; General Youth Fellowship, Evangelical United Brethren Church, (sponsor)
Description taken from Audio-Visual Research Guide (published nine editions, 1949-1972) of the National Council of Churches. This film depicts scenes of Manila, sea coast villages and the fishing industry and mountain areas in the Philippines, showing the work of EUB partners in the United Church. It shows the work of the church in teacher training, education, and medicine. A major strength of this film is that it shows realistically the indigenous church at work; the photography is true to life. Although there may be more interest shown for the film in EUB churches and others whose denominations are part of the United Church in the Philippines, there is almost no denominational emphasis. It would be recommended for instruction and discussion in overseas missions with senior highs through adults.

The Cross in Japan - Missions Series


Date:1957
Length: 32m
Lloyd E. Young, (producer) ; Department of World Mission, Evangelical United Brethren, (producer) ; Douglas Cox, (Director) ; Betty Erickson, (Screenwriter) ; Dale Munier (editor), (cast) ; Art Gilmore (narrator), (cast) ; Howarrd Culver (narrator), (cast)
Description taken from Audio-Visual Research Guide (published nine editions, 1949-1972) of the National Council of Churches. Using his scrapbook of pictures, a missionary describes the work of the denomination in Japan. In churches, schools, and hospitals, the missionaries work with the Japanese to proclaim the total Christian message. Although specific EUB projects are visualized, the work illustrated is largely free from denominational labelling. There is a good overall view of the culture and religions of Japan; and the emphasis on working with, rather than for, the indigenous people is to be commended. Photography is excellent, the script is good. For instruction, promotion, and motivation of junior highs through adults, it is highly recommended for the producing denomination, recommended for other denominations.
