Part of The Torchlighters: Heroes of the Faith children’s DVD series, The Samuel Morris Story is an animated cartoon chronicling the true story of an African prince destined to become a Christian missionary. When young Prince Kaboo was captured, the tribe who seized him demanded ever-increasing ransom; eventually the prince’s tribe could no longer pay, dooming him to death by torture. But then a miracle happened – the ropes binding Kaboo fell away, strength flooded his body, and a voice form the heavens urged him to run for his life! His steps would guide him down God’s path, in this striking and inspirational adventure highly recommended especially for Christian children ages 8-12 and for Sunday School DVD libraries.
