The Drop Box film played last night  - and CHVN has just learned the showings have been EXTENDED for more showings!

Pastor Lee Jong-Rak built a “baby box”—a safe harbor to welcome and care for these babies at the front of his church. So far, more than 500 babies—many of whom have disabilities—have been helped. A portion of the film’s proceeds will go to support Pastor Lee’s ministry.

"The Drop Box" is the story of Pastor Lee's work and tells his story and the stories of the children he has helped to save.

The film played in Winnipeg on March 4 & 5th , and due to popularity, another showing and encore showing have been added - this time for March 7th (Winnipeg only) and 9th (Winnipeg and Winkler). Updated information on the showings can be found here.

If this is the first time you're hearing about this film, take a peek at the trailer and get a feel for this powerful story.

A graduate of the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, director Brian Ivie and his film crew friends began shooting in 2011. For him the experience was personally transformative as well .“I became a Christian while making this movie," he explains. "When I started to make it, and just saw all these kids come through the drop box—it was like a flash from heaven. Just like these kids with disabilities had crooked bodies, I had a crooked soul. And God loves me still.” You can learn more about him here.
