Steve Saint leads a group out of their comfort zone and into the jungles of Ecuador. The group includes many who are related to one of the most famous missionary stories of our time—the five men who were killed in Ecuador in 1956 by the tribe then known as the Aucas.
Steve Saint recalls life in the jungles of Ecuador and the events surrounding the death of his father, Nate Saint, and four other missionaries in 1956.
One of the most gripping missionary sagas of our time. Five missionaries went into the land of the savage Aucas. Their offer of friendship was rejected, and the Aucas killed the missionaries. Elisabeth Elliot, wife of one of the martyrs, her daughter and Rachel Saint would not give up and eventually lived among and brought the Gospel to the Aucas. Through Gates of Splendor is an effective demonstration of God’s grace at work during an unforgettable moment in modern missions history.
Jim Elliot spent his youth preparing to share the Gospel with those who had never heard it. But nothing could have prepared him for the dangers and challenges he and his colleagues would face in the jungles of Ecuador.
