Description

Torchlighters: The Samuel Morris Story: Young Prince Kaboo knows his fate is sealed. Since his father can no longer meet his captors' ransom demands, Kaboo is to be tortured until death. But a bigger plan is about to unfold! A blinding light appears and the ropes that bind him fall away. Renewed strength floods his bruised body, and a heavenly voice urges him, "Run, Kaboo, Run!" The dramatic events that follow lead the boy prince to take the new name, "Samuel Morris." Nothing will stop Samuel Morris from sharing his growing faith with all who will listen.

Torchlighters: The Jim Elliot Story:
Geared for children ages 8-12, this stunning, half-hour, action-packed program uses top quality animation to bring to life the story of missionary martyr Jim Elliot. The year was 1956. From the steamy jungles of Ecuador, news spread around the world that five young American men were mercilessly killed by members of the Auca tribe (now known as the Waodani)--a people those young men had gone to serve and befriend. That seemingly senseless tragedy a half century ago has become an inspirational marvel as that same tribe is now friends with the families of those they killed! This is the story of one of those brave torchlighters--Jim Elliot.

DVD Features:
- Languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Hindi, Gujarati
- Subtitles: English

Bonus Material:
- Interview with Steve Saint, son Nate Saint, a fellow martyr with Jim Elliot
- Autobiography of Marj Saint Van Der Puy, Nate's wife
- Comprehensive leader’s guide with reproducible student worksheets in pdf format


Torchlighters: Gladys Aylward
With war raging about her and soldiers closing in, the wounded missionary Gladys Aylward (as portrayed in the movie, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness) sets out on the most difficult journey of her life -- a 100-mile trek over the mountains to a safe haven.

But it's not her own safety that concerns this little woman with big faith. It's the safety and well being of the 100 orphaned children in her care. Watch as Gladys' strength and faith are stretched to the limit, all for the sake of the children.

Torchlighters: Amy Carmichael:
As little Preena is snatched away from the most gentle woman she has seen in months, she wonders how she will ever again find a way out of the temple, where she is held against her will. How will she find the missionary known as Amy Carmichael, the one who wears a cross and serves a different sort of God? Meanwhile, Amy is also consumed by the awful truth she has learned about the plight of the “temple girls.” Will Amy’s faithful determination be enough to free Preena from the powerful customs and superstitions that keep her hostage?

- Children are intrigued by this series!

Your Heroes of Faith DVD series is making a great impact on our children. Each time I show one in our missions’ emphasis time, they are totally intrigued and touched by how God used ordinary people to do extraordinary things for His glory. They are beginning to realize God can use them too. Keep them coming!

- Praise God for these DVDs

Thank you so much to Torchlighters. Your Heroes of the faith DVDs always have a wonderful spiritual impact on us and our children. Our children are really fascinated and I get the feeling that deep in their hearts the would some day wish to be such ordinary yet useful vessels for the Lord and His glory. They are also encouraged that the gospel and the truth are worth fighting for. We are now planning to buy some more of these DVDs to bless others. Well done!

- About Using Torchlighters

Torchlighters DVDs and study guides are top notch. I can't wait to start showing and teaching them. When we are finished, I am considering putting together a special program in front of the church with the kids about the Torchlighter series. I am not sure what that will be yet, but one thing I know is that because of the wonderful teaching guides you have provided, I have time to do things like this. Torchlighters is going to be the springboard for many exciting things our children will get to experience and share and I want to thank you again for creating such an amazing program of such quality. Everything is so well thought out and the artwork is beautiful. I know the parents will immediately see that we have chosen an exceptional program and the kids will be thrilled to see the posters start going up around the church.

- Amazing

All your movies are so moving. God has used so many. My favorite part of your movies is the Documentary found in the special features. These are tastefully done and I even let my 4 and 6 year old watch them. I think it is important and these are just as great for adults as children. Blessings....

- Torchlighter Series

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!

- Torchlighter Series

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!
