Torchlighters: The Amy Carmichael Story
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 Carmichael is also consumed by the awful truth she has learned about the plight of the “temple girls.” Will Amy Carmichael's faithful determination be enough to free Preena from the powerful customs and superstitions that keep her hostage?
Torchlighters is a series of animated programs for youth ages 8–12, presenting the lives of true-life heroes from Christian history. When kids see what God can do through a “Torchlighter” who is devoted to carrying out His will and purposes, they too may want to carry a torch of faith by serving Him.
