Last Sunday was the 56th anniversary of the deaths of the missionary martyrs to Ecuador: Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Peter Fleming, Ed McCully, and Roger Youderian.
Take the time to listen to a remarkable talk “Sovereignty, Suffering and the Work of Missions” by Steve Saint, son of Nate Saint, delivered at a Desiring God conference as he reflects upon both the deaths of the five men and subsequent events. You won’t regret listening to it!
