"The Finest Hours," released nationwide Friday, is a Walt Disney Pictures film with a plot taken right from the history books. In the true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's famous rescue, the Hollywood film showcases the hope and faith of the brave men out at sea.
In 1952, a massive winter storm split an oil tanker in two, off the coast of Cape Cod, trapping more than 30 sailors on board. The Coast Guard heard about the ship in distress and set out on a daring rescue attempt in which mostly every man on board was rescued. The heroic event is now a movie based on a book by the same name.
"The Finest Hours" stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz and Eric Bana. more >>

It is the incredibly heart-wrenching stories of the children who come to Puerta Hermosa, and the call for Christians to take care of "the least of these" that motivated groups such as Strong Tower Ministries based in Orange County to build the complex, and for others, including 100 people from the U.S., to be a part of the grand opening.
A couple of days before the ceremony on Saturday, Beautiful Gate Orphanage and Genesis Diez (umbrella ministry) founder Greg Amstutz told this reporter the story of two children who were the first taken in for care, resulting in the start of the Beautiful Gate Orphanage 10 years ago. more >>
