These boys are currently living at Christians' Haven.
Notice how evident the happiness is on these boys' faces - a very sharp contrast to the faces of street children.
The cast and crew learned Christians' Haven's song "One Way Jesus" by Hillsong.
"Magandang umaga." ("Good Morning" in the local language)
A very special time each morning was a devotion shared by a member of the cast or crew.
At 7:00 a.m., the group would leave for the shooting location. En route, they would play Twenty Questions, learning little details about each other.
Sometimes getting "makeup" for the part meant getting dirty.

All of the children living at Christians' Haven at the time the movie was shot were a part of the movie in some way.
Loneliness, fear, mistrust, love, acceptance, hope...
. . . the characters of this story run the gamut of emotions
Many hours of shooting, re-filming, and editing went into the making of All Things New.
After an exhausting day, the cast and crew would return to their home away from home for supper, a little fun, and finally sleep.
