Faith Like Potatoes

Faith Like Potatoes (DVD)

“The South African crowd stared in stunned silence as Angus Buchan proclaimed to them, ‘This year we are going to plant potatoes!’ Is he crazy? Despite the crowd's reluctance, Angus Buchan knew about something stronger than the impending El Nino drought — he believed the promises of God. Angus had a faith like potatoes — a ‘real, tangible faith that will sustain us every day.’ Through unlikely friendships and much needed divine intervention, he discovers his life's true purpose and it sustains his unwavering belief in the power of faith. A moving life journey of a man who, like his potatoes, grows his faith, unseen until the harvest.”

Inspiring true story. Angus Buchan did not have an easy life, but he learned to meet his challenges with faith in God, and that made all the difference — he experienced some pretty powerful miracles, including raising a woman back to life who had been struck by lightning. A farmer in Zululand in South Africa, he sowed potatoes in a drought season, which was a pretty insane thing to do. But believing he was led by God, he did it anyway — and received a remarkable harvest of big potatoes. He’s still doing some amazing things today, reaching his region in Africa with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The movie, along with a bonus feature about Frank Buchan and his continuing ministry, shows some remarkable miracles.

You can also read the book, Faith Like Potatoes ("Film Edition") by Angus Buchan.

God's Supernatural Power in You

God's Supernatural Power in You
compiled by Frank DeCenso and featuring James W. Goll, Dr. Che Ahn, Kris Vallotton, Graham Cooke, Frank DeCenso, Heidi Baker, Jaeson Ma, Marc A. DuPont, Steve Sjogren, Craig von Buseck, Wolfgang Simson, Scott McDermott and Marguerite Evans.

The need for power ministry is as strong today as it was when Jesus and the apostles walked the earth. The need for demonstrations of Gods powerful love, exhibited through His church, will demolish strongholds of unbelief and relativism, as well as tear down cultural barriers that may bring confusion when only the words of the good news are shared, but its power is neglected. When Jesus and the apostles proclaimed the good news of salvation to people, works of power accompanied them. Today, the entire church needs mentored in how to bring Gods word to the world in power. This book is a prophetic call to engage te mission of bringing God's radical love to this hurting world through power ministry.
Frank DeCenso calls this "Volume 2" to his Amazed by the Power of God, Vol. 1 (preview with Amazon's "Look Inside" feature).
