Through Gates of Splendor


Today marks the 65th Anniversary of the passing of Jim Elliot and 4 fellow missionaries through Heaven’s Gates of Splendor. In memoriam, we share with you this documentary narrated by Elisabeth Elliot about these 5 men. Jim, Pete Fleming, Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, & Ed McCully left behind a legacy of passion, dedication, and love that changed the world. The sacrifice of their lives for the sake of carrying the Gospel to the unreached natives of Ecuador has touched millions, and it continues to inspire a new generation of missionaries to go, no matter the cost. In the words of Jim Elliot,

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.

May we live in such a way as these… for God’s glory.
