Tell The World (The inspiring story of the Seventh-day Adventist Church)
Based on true events, Tell The World shares the compelling story of a small group of farmers from the northeast region of the United States. They set the foundation of an organization that has been at the forefront of issues such as health, education, communication and Biblical interpretation.
The film begins with a startling discovery made by farmer and former militia member William Miller, played by Bill Lake. After years of study, Miller concludes that Jesus will return in 1843. His sermons along with the Biblical and historical evidence were so convincing that thousands of people sold everything, confessed their sins and waited for the event with high expectations. Eventually they settled for a specific date: October 22nd, 1844.
Faithful church goers often faced the hard decision to stay in the church or be asked to leave due to Miller's controversial beliefs
But the day came, and Jesus did not return. In addition to Miller and his wife Lucy, played by Kate Hurman, few people remained faithful to God, among them Ellen Harmon (Tommie Amber-Pirie), James White (Stephen MacDonald) and Joseph Bates (Timothy Paul Coderre).
