Jim Elliot

The missionary who risked it all for Ecuador

His ultimate sacrifice lit a torch of faith

Jim Elliot has spent his youth preparing to share the Gospel with those who’d never heard it, but nothing could have prepared him for the dangers he faces in the jungles of Ecuador. The remote Waodoni tribe is suspicious and antagonistic when the missionaries begin to fly over their territory with peace offerings. How can Jim and his fellow missionaries break down the hostile barriers and carry a torch of faith to this unreached people group? Find out in this inaugural episode of the Torchlighters.

“Glad to Recommend”

The Jim Elliot Story is well-made and will surely appeal to the target audience. It will share with children the deep and inspiring faith of some of God’s most dedicated servants. I am glad to recommend it.

“A New Level”

My 8-year-old grandson was taken to a new level in His walk with the Lord. In fact, my whole family was deeply touched by this video.

“Fantastic Resource”

This is a fantastic resource!! It tells the story of Elliot and friends well, and I personally LOVED the bonus features—the two interviews and the downloadable lesson plans. I’d recommend this series of videos to anyone.
