The Outpost

Fr. Michael and his children

The Outpost is a powerful video that is capable of changing your life, inspiring you to be a better Christian. It may influence you so much that it will shake you up and make you examine your life, where you are and what you have accomplished. You’ll be moved to the point of shedding tears, when you’ll see the vastness of human love, incarnate in the hero, and human suffering. To those who suffer in life it will provide comfort, and it will soften even the hardest of hearts. This is not a fictitious story, a fantasy, but a documentary of real people and real lives. A Russian production with English subtitles. Watch the video
