Today (1/8/11) marks the 55 year anniversary since the death of Jim Elliot and his team (Ed McCully, Roger Youderian, Pete Fleming, and Nate Saint) in their attempt to take the gospel to the Waodani people group of Ecuador. You can read about their story in this article from Christianity Today, Did They Have To Die. I’ve uploaded below a picture of the page of his journal entry where he wrote his famous quote, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
Let us not be fools. Let us give our all to Christ that we may live for eternity!!!
