Torchlighters: The William Booth Story
Introduce children to the action-packed story behind The Salvation Army. William Booth is determined to bring life-changing Gospel to London's most troubled neighborhood, the East End. But when the local pub owners realize some of their best customers are becoming Christian, they hire big, strong thugs to get rid of the preacher once and for all. Watch as William's ragtag band of followers marches into the East End with Bibles and Prayer as their weapons of choice. Inspiring story for children and parents alike!
Torchlighters is a series of animated programs for youth ages 8-12, presenting the lives of true-life heroes from Christian history.
