Introduce children to the action-packed story behind "The Salvation Army" and its founder, William Booth. The pub owners and their hired thugs are ready for William and his ragtag followers when they come marching into London's East End. With clubs and rocks, the thugs are set to chase this preacher out of town once and for all. But William and his "Salvation Army" are not so easily dissuaded! Armed only with Bibles, musical instruments and their unflinching faith in God, they march in to face their most dangerous opponents so far. Who will win the spiritual battle for the hurting souls of this forgotten corner of London?
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.
