‘Torchlighters: The Amy Carmichael Story’ ~
CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
As little Preena is snatched away from the most gentle woman she has seen in months, she wonders how she will ever again find a way out of the temple, where she is held against her will. How will she find the missionary known as Amy Carmichael, the one who wears a cross and serves a different sort of God? Meanwhile, Amy is also consumed by the awful truth she has learned about the plight of the “temple girls.” Will Amy’s faithful determination be enough to free Preena from the powerful customs and superstitions that keep her hostage?
The Torchlighter Series is a GREAT series! This particular one is about Amy Carmichael, a Protestant Christian missionary in India, who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Dohnavur. She served in India for 55 years without furlough and wrote many books about the missionary work there.
This story was shocking as I had no idea of the things that were taking place in India in 1901. I would highly recommend watching this film. It was also amazing to see that a major source of their pride was showed off in their clothing (Sahri) and jewelry. What are our symbols of pride today? Something to seriously pray about.
God used Amy in a wonderful way to make an end to a terrible tradition. How can God use you and I today?
