Storyline

16-year-old Amy Newhouse, a girl inclined to become a full-time missionary, must fight the biggest battle of her young, promising life - cancer. Her open heart to the people of her school sparks a passionate rally from the community; however, this passion dwindles as her cancer metastasizes. Her cancer seems to miraculously disappear, but just as it seems the community has prevailed and the battle won, Amy discovers that the deadly disease has returned and is incurable. Amy's prayers for healing continue, but with the seemingly dried-up support of her community, and an apparent "no" from God, she dies from the one battle she cannot win; however, her prayer club lives on and grows, proving to all doubters that God has a "Greater Yes" after all.

The power of one!
16 February 2013 | by williamchairoSee all my reviews

Yes perhaps,one may quote statistics in regards to the effect that this movie had on the community in Pampa,from my experience even if one life is altered by this record of Amy's life, who knows how far and how much can be accomplished by "the one". We are reminded that some 2 thousand years ago a lone person brought a message of faith and hope, which has spread across the globe. The fact that I am writing this from Australia, watching this movie with several other people carries with it the potential of a life changing experience that may touch many other lives. I could write at length about transforming life experiences, brought about by "the one",however on this forum,we have written enough.
