The newest Torchlighter episode, The
Adoniram and Ann Judson Story, is now
available! This new adventure shares
the story of America’s first missionary,
Adoniram Judson, and his wife Ann.
Within two weeks of their marriage,
the young couple set out on the long
journey to India, only to learn upon arrival that they were not welcome there.
This setback would be one of many the
Judsons would face in their ultimate

persecution, war, and imprisonment.
Through their story, families learn that
God uses the humble and calls each of
us to be fishers of men.
