“Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven,” Jesus once replied to a very wealthy man who asked, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?" The man went away dejected, unwilling to part with his possessions. What would have happened if this encounter had ended differently?

 Charles Mulli felt God was asking him to do the same. But unlike the rich young ruler, Mulli responded, “Yes, God. Use me.” Since then, he has seen how “what is impossible with man is possible with God.”

In a documentary, which the National Woman’s Missionary Union previewed this summer during their meeting in Phoenix, Director Scott Haze recounts the inspiring rags-to-riches-to-rags story of Mulli. A former street kid who became a millionaire, Mulli chose to give it all up to help other street kids like himself. The film, “Mully,” debuts Oct. 3-5 in theaters in Louisville, Lexington, Florence, Richmond, Owensboro, Paducah, Bowling Green, Ashland and other places across the state.
