Jim Elliot

Sunday 2017.6.26 I had the opportunity to share the story of Jim Elliot to the JWS children at church. The commitment and conviction of Jim Elliot’s life and his 4 missionary friend to God and towards the native of the savage Aucas in the Ecuador jungle changed the life the tribe forever. No doubt they, all 5 missionaries, were savagely speared and machete to death, their non retaliation for self defense left a bitter note towards the fearsome warriors of aucas. God used their selfless defenseless act to open the way for the latter folks who were the killed missionaries spouses and sisters to live among them, and minister to the aucas.

Jim Elliot, a missionary who made contact with the savage Aucas in Ecuador. He is an evangelical Christian who was one of five missionaries killed while participating in Operation Auca, an attempt to evangelize the Huaorani people of Ecuador. In return, God honoured them through their wives who gave the gospel of Jesus to the tribes.
