Elisabeth-Elliot-Quote-1-620x348On Sunday, Elisabeth Elliot passed away. Elliot was a living testimony to the power of God’s grace, forgiveness, and unconditional love. As a young missionary, Elisabeth traveled to Ecuador where she soon married fellow missionary Jim Elliot. Sensing the call to share the gospel with an unreached people group, Jim and four other missionaries made contact with the Aucas, a tribe living in the Ecuadorian jungles. Due to a tragic misunderstanding, all five were speared to death. Elisabeth and the other widows remained in Ecuador where they continued the work of their husbands, sharing the gospel with the very people who were involved in their husbands’ murders. The martyrdom of these men, and the remarkable story of the village’s transformation, led to a an influx of young Christians entering missionary service in the middle of the twentieth century. Elisabeth went on to write numerous influential books on her husband’s life, her own ministry, and the Christian life. She died at the age of 88.
