John Smith & Pastor Jason Noble join us to chat about the new movie Breakthrough, inspired by John's incredible survival from being trapped under ice and without a pulse for over 45 minutes. John shares about the experience, falling through the ice, waking up in the hospital (which NO ONE imagined possible) and the days after with Pastor Jason Noble at his side throughout. The story of Breakthrough is amazing - and actually speaks into all of our lives as Jason shares in our chat. We hope you are inspired and encouraged by their story. Chrissy Metz (This is Us) plays the role of John's tenacious mom Joyce Smith in the movie (it's raw and real and powerful) and is joined by an all-star cast. Great family film - especially for this Easter week. Audio only: https://soundcloud.com/…/breakthough-movie-chat-with-john-s… BREAKTHROUGH the movie: The incredible true story about a mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN) and adapted for the screen by Grant Nieporte (SEVEN POUNDS) from Joyce Smith’s own book, BREAKTHROUGH is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope, and sometimes even a miracle.
