Part of The Torchlighters: Heroes of the Faith children's DVD series, The Samuel Morris Story is an animated cartoon chronicling the true story of an African prince destined to become a Christian missionary. When young Prince Kaboo was captured, the tribe who seized him demanded ever-increasing ransom; eventually the prince's tribe could no longer pay, dooming him to death by torture. But then a miracle happened - the ropes binding Kaboo fell away, strength flooded his body, and a voice form the heavens urged him to run for his life! His steps would guide him down God's path, in this striking and inspirational adventure highly recommended especially for Christian children ages 8-12 and for Sunday School DVD libraries.
you are doing very good work animations are very good for children
This has been a tremendous work in animation of the story of Samuel Morris with facts true to form so carefully portrayed of a beautiful soul completely sold out for Christ. The additional studies for follow up are a superb and ideal for a family study. Thank you for this work and effort in perfection to bring a powerful story to a level that a younger person could understand. Was richly blessed to watch.
Finally got around to watching "The Samuel Morris Story". It was arguably the best Torchlighter. It really spoke to me and my family. It has the best looking animation too. Very inspiring, thank the Lord! Can't wait for Augustine to come out. Keep up the great work.
This is my favorite children's series, bar none. I think that my wife and I enjoyed the DVD's as much as the children. Please produce more of these!
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for producing these DVD's!! Our 3 children (aged 6, 4 and 2) watch them constantly and it cheers our hearts to hear them play Amy Carmichael rescuing Preena instead of Cinderella and Snow White! (in fact our 2 year old son goes around the house yelling, "let me go, let me go!" which he learned from that movie!). We wanted something in our home that would enrich our children's lives and give them missionary hearts, and these movies do that perfectly. We have recommended them to all the families we know who have children. We are already looking forward to John Wesley!
Recently, I stumbled across The Samuel Morris Story on Smile of a Child (TBN network). I tuned into the story late but what I saw was inspiring…. I didn't think I could ever be so affected by an animation. Bringing these stories to life is an incredible service to the church. I find myself wondering why I don't recall ever hearing of these heroes of the faith that Torchlighters brings honor to. Thank you.
Our family has watched your DVD's for years and we have been SO blessed by your materials!! We are so grateful that you've provided a Christian look at history, showed us stories of brave Christians, and built our faith — one episode at a time. And we thank you for stepping up to do this and providing <b>excellent</b> children's DVD's — a very rare thing indeed!
