An amazing documentary premiered on byu.tv today between sessions of conference.
Sisterz in Zion chronicles two dozen young women–all converts, mostly recent immigrants, all living in New York City–who went to EFY. The faith of these young women is awe-inspiring, their culture shock in Provo is by turns wickedly funny and cringe-inducing, the quality of the film itself is commendable, and the music kicks butt.
You can watch it anytime at www.byu.tv (you’ll need to set the date to October 1st and scroll to 12 noon) and you can get more information at their website. If you are a Young Women leader in your ward, you might consider showing your girls the first few minutes of the film as well as the scene near the end when the girls meet Sister Tanner, the General Young Women President. It’s powerful stuff.
