The stories are actually fictionalized but based on true stories from actual missionaries. The names have been changed and some details embellished, but the missionaries play themselves in the part and it's neat to hear all of their voices. The series is completely action packed and Bible based. The family very much has a heart for winning people to Jesus. It wasn't a preaching CD, but their mission was weaved into each story. The family truly cares about people.
A particular set of episodes that stirred up emotions in us were the ones titled "Sapphire Slaves". Without ruining any surprises, these episodes show how slavery still exists in the world today and sadly, children are not immune from it. This one bothered P actually and I am glad I listened with them so we could discuss it together.
They say that they are family adventures and for all ages, but Mr. Brinkman cautions at the beginning of several episodes that if you are under 10, you should get a parent to listen along with you. I'd agree with this for sure. Some things in there are a little intense and it was good for us to be able to talk about them together after each episode. I'm not sure I would go much younger than 10 actually. We all enjoyed these and no one spoke when they were on, for fear of missing something important. I might have even said to "shhhhh!!!" a few times while listening so I could pay attention. I enjoyed that they sprinkled in facts about the area or animals or land in the stories. Educational and entertaining.
