“ ... when it comes to the poems I have written, they are like handfuls of grain which were left in the field on purpose, for me to find. I did not work for them. I found them, or perhaps they found me.”
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”-Jim Elliot
LIFE Magazine (January 30, 1956) – The cover reads, MISSIONARIES’ JUNGLE MARTYRDOM: DIARIES AND EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS. Inside, the lead story begins with a photo of five missionary wives, holding threes mall children, taken at the moment they learn that their husbands are not coming home, speared to death by the stone-age Auca Indians they were trying to reach for Christ.
