The Adventists 2
About This Episode
In 2010, the critically acclaimed documentary The Adventists examined the history and core beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventists. Its sequel, The Adventists 2, widens the lens to explore the global story of this American-born strand of Christianity, including the church's medical mission work internationally and their more than century-old commitment to provide health and healing in some of the most remote regions in the world.
In Haiti, The Adventists 2 examines the faith-based support given to victims after the devastating earthquake. In Brazil, young missionaries bring much-needed medical support to the most remote regions. In Malawi, Africa, a hospital opened in 1902 as a leper center today treats thousands with HIV-AIDS. In China, a state-of-the-art hospital exemplifies the collaboration between a conservative religion and a facility of a communist state. And in the Dominican Republic, a team of volunteer doctors and nurses travel annually to a remote part of the world to perform operations and offer critical care to the poor.
