Unbroken… the rest of the story

Louis Zamperini

The movie, Unbroken, tells the real life story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner and World War II hero who survived 2 plane crashes; 47 days floating on a life raft in the Pacific Ocean; then two years in a Japanese POW camp, but just where the movie ends and the credits start to roll, his greatest battle was yet to come… If you would like to share highlights of this real life story with your sponsored child, the boys will love it.

Louis’ story was told in the book by Laura Hillenbrand. Franklin Graham reports, “Unfortunately, the film stops at chapter 33. There’s 39 chapters in the book. I think probably the most important part of the book is of course when he does come home and his life does become broken; it falls apart.” Zamperini had nightmares every night and would wake up choking his wife, thinking she was “The Bird,” his Japanese tormentor.

Hear Louis Zamperini tell the rest of his amazing story in his own words, and how his broken life was transformed after a radical encounter with Jesus Christ and a servant called Billy Graham.

Maybe you’ve seen the movie, so you can tell them about that too – here are some links with text so you can ‘copy and paste’.




Older Boys … hmmm. Yes, they’re a challenge, aren’t they?! I want to inspire my Compassion boys to live Godly lives. To call them to a courageous manhood following in the footsteps of Jesus. No easy task. I do not want to waste this wonderful all-too-soon-it-will-be-over opportunity to build into them for all of eternity. How about you? Here are some ideas to inspire them.
