Film Evening – Friday 19th October 2018
in Tain Church of Scotland Hall
Entry is free
When Angus Buchan, a white Zambian farmer of Scottish origin, emigrates to escape political unrest and worrying land reforms, he looks south for a better life. With nothing more than a trailer in the bush, and help from his Zulu foreman, Simeon Bhengu, the Buchan family struggles to settle in their new homeland. Faced with ever-mounting challenges, hardships and personal turmoil, Buchan quickly spirals down into a life consumed by anger, fear and destruction. Finally, his wife convinces him to attend a local church, where the religious testimony of other farmers influence his decision to give his life to Christ. He has a complete turnaround, and positive things begin to happen when Angus prays in faith.
He starts giving his testimony in different towns, and eventually gathers thousands of people in Kings Park Stadium for a time of united prayer for the nation and for the land. Traditionally a maize and cattle farmer, he decides to plant potatoes. Scientists had warned the farmers not to plant that season unless they had irrigation. Because of the unprecedented drought, planting potatoes would be a massive risk. Believing he is led by the Lord, he plants potatoes in the dry dust. When harvest time comes, there is a crop of giant potatoes.
The film will be followed by refreshments.
