Missionary John H. Groberg returns to Tonga in the 1960s with his wife and their five young daughters. When their sixth child is born with a serious illness, the Grobergs face their ultimate test of faith, only to find themselves surrounded by the love andprayers of thousands of Tongans. Barriers of inter-religious strife are soon broken down as all unite in hopes of a miracle that will save the baby’s life, as well as the life of a Tongan minister’s son.
Yesterday, we watched The Other Side of Heaven 2 as a family. It is a high action film with moderate violence, so you may want to pre-screen or have the remote ready to fast forward. Elder Groberg is in Idaho Falls, Idaho with his young family when he is called to be a mission president to Tonga and surrounding islands. Back to the place where he served as a young man, now with hundreds in his care. We cried many times and marveled at the hardships they endured, as well as the faith they showed with prayer. Highly recommend for youth and adults.
Content: domestic violence, gang violence. High tension.
