Sound of Freedom
Sep-Oct '23

Based on the true story of anti-human trafficking activist Tim Ballard, this movie features The Passion of the Christ fame Jim Caviezel in the lead role. While a young boy is rescued from child traffickers, his sister is still held captive. As official measures to rescue her bring no respite, this federal agent quits his job and journeys into the Colombian jungle, endangering his life to free a group of children from a fate worse than death.

Produced by Eduardo Verástegui and directed by Alejandro Monteverde, the movie was released in the United States on July 4 and is already making waves at the box office. An Angel Studios original production, Sound of Freedom will soon be released in theaters worldwide and be available in the Angel app.

The Search for Freedom
Sep-Oct '23

In the aftermath of the Communists’ takeover of Vietnam in the 1970s, Brother Peter was forced out of the seminary and drafted into the Communist army. He managed to escape but had to spend months hiding in the jungles of Vietnam before managing to migrate. Both the fugitive life and the escape were scary and life-threatening.
THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM is an account of his journey from hopelessness through divine grace. He looks back at his periods of darkness and marvels at God’s providence that accompanied and strengthened him. As he writes in this book, “The journey to find God that I have experienced in my life has not been an easy one.” The book also offers glimpses of his life as a priest, sharing his journey to Jesus through the love of Mother Mary.

The Paperback is available in Amazon Bookstore:
