The Torchlighters: The Jim Elliot Story

This DVD focuses on the life of Jim Elliot. The Torchlighters is an animated series telling the stories of great heroes of the faith.

The year was 1956. From the steamy jungles of Ecuador, news spread around the world that five young American men were ruthlessly killed by members of the Auca tribe (now known as the Waorani)—a people the five young men had gone to serve and tell about Jesus. That seemingly senseless tragedy that occurred a half century ago became an inspirational marvel as family members of those killed, compelled by the grace of Christ, went back to the tribe and shared the message of forgiveness and salvation with the very men who had speared their family members! This is the story of one of those Torchlighters.

Follow Jim Elliot’s adventures from his college years to his work in the jungles of Ecuador, showing young people faith in action as he answers God’s call to do the seemingly impossible.

Chinese Picture Scroll

Scroll

The people of China have enjoyed the beauty of artistic scrolls for hundreds of years. To make a scroll, overlap the ends of two pieces of colored 8½- by 11-inch printer paper. Glue them together to make one long sheet that measures 8½ by 21 inches.

Cut a white piece of paper so that it measures 6 inches wide and 11 to 12 inches long. Write Chinese characters or draw a picture on the white paper that reminds you of China. Glue the drawing to the center of the colored sheet. Glue one 9-inch chopstick along the top edge of the scroll and one along the bottom edge. Hang up the scroll with ribbon tied to the top chopstick.
