The Bible smuggler who gave his all for Korea



Bringing light into a dark land

In the mid-nineteenth​ century, the hermit kingdom of Korea is determined to keep foreigners and Christianity out. However, one brave missionary will do anything to bring the light of God into this dark land. With the help of some Korean fishermen hungry for truth, Robert Jermain Thomas risks everything to smuggle in a treasure beyond all imagination. But what will his bravery cost him? And will the Word of God bring light to this dark kingdom?

What People are Saying

“A Moving Story”

This is one of the most moving stories I have ever heard, and this episode [of Torchlighters] shares it in such a beautiful way for children without losing any of its power and ability to inspire. Well done!

“My Children’s Favorite”

The Torchlighter videos are my childrens’ favorites! THANK YOU for making these ministry tools! We are missionaries in South America, and we really appreciate you putting the videos in Spanish.

“Enriching Movies”

We wanted something in our home that would enrich our children’s lives and give them missionary hearts, and these movies do that perfectly. We have recommended them to all the families we know who have children.


“A Blessing”

The Torchlighter series has been such a blessing to our family, and have encouraged us to make many changes in our family in how we pray for and support missionaries around the world.
