SKU: 3855921

In 1956, news spread from the steamy jungles of Ecuador that five young American men were ruthlessly killed by members of the Auca tribe, now known as the Waodani, a group those young men had gone to serve and befriend. That tragedy from a half century ago is now an inspirational story, as the tribe is now friends with the families of the men they killed. Discover the story of one of those brave torchilighters: Jim Elliot.
Jim Elliot spend his early years preparing to share the Gospel with those who had never heard it. Nothing could have prepared him for the dangers and challenges he would face in the jungles of Ecuador. The remote Auca tribe was known for being suspicious and antagonistic to even the most friendly gestures from outsiders. Would Jim and his fellow missionaries ever break down the hostile barriers and carry a torch of faith to this savage people set on attacking all outsiders?
In this premier episode of Torchlighters, we follow Jim's journey from his college years to his work in the jungles, showing young people his faith in action as he responds to God's call to do the seemingly impossible.
