“Pray The Devil Back To Hell” Documentary Screening Scheduled For Saturday, Nov. 7 at Barton

WILSON, N.C. – Barton College’s Campus Compassion student program will present the documentary “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m. in Howard Chapel.  This event is open to the public at no charge, and the community is invited to attend.

“This documentary chronicles the remarkable story of the courageous Christian and Muslim Liberian women who come together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their country,” shared the Reverend Hollie Woodruff, chaplain of Barton College and advisor of the Campus Compassion program.

Barton College purchased the rights to share this film with area church congregations as the College’s Campus Compassion program partners with Wilson United in Service to bring awareness and to raise funds for an upcoming April 2010 medical mission to Liberia. This medical mission will be in partnership with the West African Children’s Lifeline and Project Helping Hands.

“Bringing this film to campus was the choice of our students, who are participating in this inaugural Campus Compassion program to learn more about how they can individually reach out in service to others in need across the world,” said Rev. Woodruff.  “This documentary screening is free to the public, but we are hopeful that those attending will also choose to support this medical mission through donations made at the event.”

Among the awards and recognitions received for this film, are “Best Documentary” awards presented at the Tribeca Film Festival and the Heartland Film Festival.   It also had the honor of being the first film shown at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in January 2009.
