A Remarkable Story
Mike Schrage, Executive Director
Have you listened to any of the Venture in Faith podcasts yet? Hebrews 10:24 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”
As a missionary to Africa for 20 years and a person who travels the world as part of my ministry, I am often encouraged and inspired by courageous people serving the Lord around the world.
Here’s one of my favorites with Steve Saint:
Steve was only five years old when the Auca Indians in Ecuador killed his father, Nate Saint and four fellow missionaries as well. Steve recounts the events following his father’s death and how the Lord used Jim Elliot’s widow, Elisabeth Elliot, and Rachel Saint, Steve’s aunt, to fulfill the dream of the martyred men and take the Gospel to this village. Steve shares how the people who killed his father are not his enemies, as some would expect. One of the men in the village even baptized Steve. As an adult, Steve also spent time living and serving the people in this same village in Ecuador.
