Release of Film on China Honours the Life and Death of Hudson Taylor

A documentary film about China is to be released on the anniversary of the death of missions pioneer Hudson Taylor.

Beijing, China, June 06, 2008 --( It was exactly 103 years ago on 3 June that J. Hudson Taylor died in his beloved and adopted country of China. It was in this vast land that the pioneer missionary had established 205 missions. The organisation that he started, China Inland Mission, commissioned hundreds of workers in his lifetime. Hudson Taylor’s life and message even influenced the famous cricketer C. T. Studd who, himself, became a missionary to China.

Harvest Fields Commissioning International and its film production arm, OLI Productions, have chosen this auspicious day of 3 June to release their 55 minute documentary film on China “China: Reflections from Heaven.” The film documents the history of the Chinese people and the testimonies, joys and struggles of everyday Christians in China today. The documentary also features input from “God’s Smuggler” best-selling author “Brother Andrew,” international Argentinean evangelist Dr. Luis Palau, Jackie Pullinger OBE, author of the best selling book “Chasing the Dragon,” China expert Ross Paterson and renowned veteran minister in China Dennis Balcombe.

The film “China: Reflections from Heaven” was filmed in Spring 2008 entirely in Beijing and Badaling, China and is part of HFCI’s “Into All the World” film series currently being broadcast on 10 TV networks across the Middle East, Russia, the C. I. S. countries, in Arabic across North America & Mexico, Australia, Romania, the U.K., New Zealand, Indonesia, Holland and Israel and worldwide on cable and satellite.
