In Finding Hope Now, 16-year-old Santos Delgado leaves his home and survives on the streets. Reverend Roger Minassian knows very little about street youth, but feels God’s calling to help. He must step out of his comfort zone and takes to streets ravaged by gang violence. Roger and Santos' lives intertwine as Roger learns to become a father to the fatherless and Santos struggles to find a new life.
Have you ever watched something and found yourself moved to do more in your neighborhood? That is how I felt after viewing this film, Finding Hope Now. It is the personal testimony of the Hope Now youth program started in 1993. I found the story captivating and yet my heart was so touched by the lengths that the founder went to in his fight for the gang youth.
The story is well done and not in the way that some Christian films are. It doesn't look cheaply made or like it was done with a home video recorder. I will warn you though, this is a graphic look at how youth in America are being pulled into gangs and the crime and violence that comes with the territory. So while there is no language or anything it shows teenagers beating people up, etc. The rating is for 12 and up. This is an excellent testimonial video though and I loved how Roger Minassian went out on faith and started this program. You can find out more information on Hope Now at their website.
