Jacob's Well

Baroudeur - The Movie

When it seems like you've have lost everything, use what you've got and let God multiply it.

Francois is a hard working husband and dad that gets retrenched. None of his efforts to get another job succeed and he is forced to use what he has, including an old bicycle, in order to provide for his family. With the help of his “black sheep” brother, a bicycle shop owner and pro-cyclist, Francois makes some life-changing discoveries about his life, career and faith in God.

Comment on the movie :
“Totally inspiring. Deeply moving. Gut wrenching. Gifted story-telling. Hope with handles. These are some of the words that come to mind as I reflect on an evening well spent watching my “movie of the year” - Baroudeur. It brings a message of hope at exactly the right time. Just like Seabiscuit and Cinderella Man captured the spirit of fighters who refused to give up after the Great Depression, so Baroudeur tells the story of an underdog that everyone can relate to in these tough modern times of global recession. When life knocks the stuffing out of you it seems impossible to go on let alone make a comeback. Baroudeur provides the ray of hope that is so desperately needed in times like this. I believe God will take this humble yet powerful movie and multiply it in the hands of the faithful hearer to work miracles. It might not win an Oscar, but it will certainly change lives. Just like Jesus does.” – Gareth Stead, His People Christian Church


Frans and Gawie decided to include Jacob's Well into the movie to show how God uses ministries and networks to help people through their trials and challenges. 


Gawie explains how it happened that Jacob's Well became connected to the Baroudeur movie:


 Frans en Gawie het besluit om Jakob se Put in die film in te werk as voorbeeld van hoe God bedienings en netwerke gebruik om mense deur hulle beproewinge en uitdagings te help.


Gawie verduidelik hoe dit gekom het dat Jakob se Put deel geword het van die Baroudeur film:
