Through Gates of Splendor


In January 1956, driven by a passion to share the good news of Jesus Christ, five men – Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, Pete Fleming, and Jim Elliot – ventured deep into the jungles of Ecuador. Their mission was to make contact with the Auca. Prior to this, the isolated tribe’s only response to the outside world was to attack all strangers. Nobody knew what would happen. So at an agreed upon time, their wives would sit by the radio, waiting for a response. It never came. The tragic headlines of what happened would flood the world.  But what happened in the lives of the families and the tribe the five men gave their lives for is nothing short of miraculous. Even today, this story of unconditional love, obedience and ultimate sacrifice inspires readers.
