Dove Review

In 1908, a missionary went to the mountains of Northeast India without permission from authorities, where the Hmar people live. He left an impact on the tribe about Jesus. After he left, Chawga believed in the Lord and Savior.

Chawga had a son, Rochunga. He wanted the boy to get an education so he could translate the Bible into their language. Chawga believed that if the people could read the Bible in their own ancient language they would understand better and become believers as well.

This is a true story filled with struggles, belief and challenges. In a time when rulers wanted nothing to do with missionaries, one man made a difference by sharing God’s love. His courage set a young man on a path that would change the culture in India forever.

We give “Beyond the Next Mountain” the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12+.
