(Rock Rapids, IA) –The true story behind the most beloved devotional of all time continues in Streams in the Desert: Words of Life, a sequel film now available on DVD from Bridgestone Multimedia Group.
After Lettie arrives in Chicago from a cross-country train ride portrayed in the first film Streams in the Desert: Discovering God’s Call, a local newspaper reporter asks to interview her to talk about her beloved devotional, Streams in the Desert, and her lifelong devotion to missions. As Lettie shares about her missionary work in the Orient with her husband Charles, Lettie reflects on how their big goals to reach every person in Japan are interrupted when Charles becomes ill and the two are forced to return home.
During the decline of her husband’s health, Lettie begins writing a journal as the Lord gives her and Charles encouragement from the Bible and the library of books they had collected through their work. Little did they know that the journal would become the most beloved Christian devotional of all time, and their missionary work would continue to this day in over fifty countries on six continents.
In addition to Streams in the Desert, Lettie Cowman authored 10 other books, including Springs in the Valley. All her books were published under the author name of Mrs. Charles E. Cowman. She and her husband are cofounders of the Oriental Missionary Society. Today known as One Mission Society, OMS includes ministries in more than 45 languages and plants more than 6,000 churches every year according to their official website.
Starring Sue Hooser, Heather Bash, and Rich Henrich, Streams in the Desert: Words of Life is currently on sale for $7.99 from Bridgestone Multimedia Group through the Christianbook Group.
