"People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives ... and when the bubble has burst, they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted."

--Nate Saint, missionary pilot, who along with Jim Elliot, Ed McCully, Roger Youderian, Pete Fleming were killed in 1956 at the hand of Waorani tribesmen they sought to reach with the Gospel. In 1958 Jim’s widow Elisabeth, along with Rachel Saint (sister of Nate Saint), went to live with the same Waorani tribe.
