How many of us have made videos from our mission trips? (Hands raise all over the room.) How many of us, while on a mission trip, have been bumped from a flight? (Almost as many hands go up.) How many of us have witnessed those flights (that bumped us) going down and killing every passenger on board, sobering us with the realization that we were scheduled to have been on that flight? (The room is motionless… except for the makers of this video.)

Journey to Everest is the video of that group’s experience in the Himilayas. They are a group from Nashville that recently completed an expedition to Everest Base Camp. They became participants in a story that made world-wide news when the plane that was scheduled to fly them into the Himalayas crashed on its way into the mountains, killing the 18 passengers on board. Their team was bumped from Yeti Airlines flight 103 just before it took off, sparing our lives.

Eventually, they made it into the Himalayan mountains and experienced an adventure that changed their lives and challenged their faith. Ultimately, they were exposed to mission work in Nepal that compelled them into action once they returned home. They documented their story in this film. It tells their story as it unfolded, from the plane crash, the expedition to Everest, and the mission work of which they were a part. Since completing the film, they have used it as a tool to spread the Gospel. To date, they have raised over $60,000 for mission work. They have also used the film to raise support for over 300 Nepali refugees that were brought to our city by the United Nations.

The trailer is spectacular. This is the way mission films should be. This is the way I want to shoot movies when I grow up. :-)
