House of Jesus
Based on actual events, House of Jesus is a story of rescue and redemption.
After a powerful earthquake devastates Haiti, Philip Scott, an orthopedic surgeon, arrives to treat the wounded. He volunteers reluctantly: coerced by his boss, and driven by a promise of professional acclaim. Then one little girl, Rose-Marie, his first patient, breaks his heart.
Philip’s world is shaken. His family, reputation, and career unravel as he sinks into despair, crushed under the weight of compounding failures. Then, in a series of encounters, Philip finds himself pulled to safety by the most unlikely people, Samaritans who despite
their own suffering, provide what Philip needs most -- a neighbor. House of Jesus allows us to follow one man’s struggle against death and witness how God is making the world right, one broken person at a time.
