A follow-up documentary on the life of Christian surfer Bethany Hamilton has been released into American cinemas.
“Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable” details the events of her life in more recent years and how her faith increased after losing her arm to a shark at age 13.
She told Baptist Press that so much good has come out of what seemed like such a terrible thing at the time and that her story is one that many people can relate to and find hope in.
She adds that the sequel to 2011’s “Soul Surfer” is a story not so much of what was lost but what has been found, knowing that God is still in control and the tragedy was all part of his plan for her life.
Now a wife and a mother, the film also chronicles her return to the water as she takes on the greatest sporting challenge and biggest wave of her career, which is ironically called Jaws.
