Come get a taste of Amy Carmichael's life in India!

"Binding Ties," the fictional story of adventure-seeking Jenny Hunter, is set in Dohnavur, the compound where Amy Carmichael carried out most of her ministry in Southern India. This show will introduce you to Amy, her faithful friend Ponnammal, her mentor and fellow missionary Thomas Walker, and the people to whom they ministered. As Jenny gets to know them and begins to adjust to life on this missionary compound, she realizes she has reached a crossroad... she must make a choice about what is truly important to her.

What will she decide? What will you decide?

This play will be presented at the Powhatan Auditorium in the Powhatan Village Building (3910 Old Buckingham Road) on Thursday, August 21st at 7:00pm, Friday, August 22nd at 7:00 pm, and Saturday, August 23rd at 2:00pm and 7:00pm. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the beginning of each show. There is no charge for admission; donations will be accepted.

This moving story brought to life on the stage will both encourage and challenge you in your faith!


This play is a production of NarrowWay, a branch of the local drama ministry CounterACT. The goal of this group is to edify and inspire the body of Christ through the dramatic arts. Our group of home educated actors have been learning a lot about Amy Carmichael as they've worked on preparing this show and they are eager to share the story of this woman's amazing dedication to God with you! Please come and support our young people in their desire to use their gifts, talents, and time to honor the Lord and encourage the saints through this production, and help us spread the word by letting your friends and family know!


This drama based on the life of Amy Carmichael was written by Sharon Woodruff Seidel and is produced by special arrangement with Bob Jones University Press. This production is sponsored by the James River Home School Foundation - www.jamesrivereagles.org
