the unstoppable story
October 17, 2014
If you have followed my blog over the years, you know that I have a keen interest in the story of Nate Saint, Jim Elliot and the other missionaries that were martyred in the early 1950's in South America. They gave their lives to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to a tribe of people who were immersed in a hopeless culture of violence, fear and death.
I have enjoyed the privilege of personally meeting Steve Saint, Nate Saint's son. I have followed the stories of the martyred men's families and I have witnessed how God can take a tragedy and use it for good and His glory.
A great way to familiarize yourself with this story is to watch the movie, End of the Spear. It is an engaging movie and a true story that will forever impact your life.
The story continues, and today it was my privilege to come across a video about this unstoppable story that was created and produced by alumni of Northwest Nazarene University (NNU). I am an alum of NNU and I work at NNU as a professor in the Education Department. I am proud of our NNU graduates and pleased to see them use their talents, degrees, training and lives as God's creative and redemptive agents in the world.
Below is the video. Enjoy!
