An Interview With Mully

Charles Mully being interviewed by Bob Waliszewski

The new documentary Mully tells the inspiring story of a remarkable African man who went from poverty to riches, then used his riches to combat poverty. Focus on the Family is proud to be a partner in bringing Charles Mully’s story to the big screen (in conjuction with Fathom Events) next week, Oct. 3-5. (You can find information about purchasing tickets—as well as learning about our initiative that donates $15 to orphan care for every ticket purchased in advance online—here.)

After I first saw Mully, I had two thoughts: I sure want the rest of my family to see this this story. And I sure hope I get to meet Charles Mully someday.

I’m happy to report that both of those things have now happened. Most of my family has seen the film (and loved it as much as I did). And I recently had a chance to sit down with Charles Mully to talk about the profound ways God has used one man’s radical obedience to Him to bless thousands of orphaned children across Kenya.

I hope this brief interview whets your appetite for next week’s release of Mully in select theaters across the country.

 I am trying to find out what age group this movie is appropriate for?? Can you advise? I didn't see your rating on the Plugged In review.

Anon, it's always so dependent on the maturity level of your children. What's fine for one 10-year-old wouldn't be for another. But in general, Mully would probably be fine for most tweens on up, though there are some scenes involving violence to be aware of.
