Recently, we settled in for the night with hibachi takeout, popped in the DVD Faith of Our Fathers, and sat back for an enjoyable family night together with our 11 year old daughter. One thing I especially love about these types of movies is that they are Christian movies. You do not have to worry about the content or if anything will be inappropriate for little eyes to see or hear.
This particular story line began with John Paul and Wayne searching for answers to questions they had for years about the fathers they never knew. Sadly, both of their fathers died 25 years before in the jungle of Vietnam.
As the plot thickens, the two young men decide to embark on a journey together to the Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC. Along the way, John Paul and Wayne learn about who their fathers really were and what they believed in. They were afforded this opportunity by reading letters their fathers had written years earlier. They became to understand that their fathers both struggled, just as they did. Thankfully, the fathers turned to God for help. A very interesting fact John Paul learned is that his dad wanted to be a preacher. In fact, John Paul actually lead Wayne’s dad to Christ before they both died while serving the Lord and their great country.
Toward the end of the trip, the story unfolds into the young men unexpectedly meeting both their father’s platoon leader who served with them in the war. The story line will keep you on the edge of your seat as you travel along with them on this journey!
