If you’ve ever been inspired by a story on the Adventist Mission DVD, you’ve witnessed the creative talents of our former video producer Dan Weber and our current video producers, Ricky Oliveras and Earley Simon.
We asked Ricky and Earley to pick 10 video stories that were popular with our viewers.
1| The Little Church Planter—Brazil (3:49)
Ten-year-old Vitoria stole people’s hearts as they watched her brave the Amazon River in a small canoe to share her faith with her young friends.
