Jim Elliot

jimelliotWASTED LIFE?

Five Missionaries Speared To Death In Jungle

Many people thought it was a tragic waste of a life when Jim Elliot and the other four missionaries died trying to contact the unreached Aucas.

Yet, how many Christians would risk their life for an opportunity to share the gospel? Jim Elliot, a young modern martyr, gave what he could not keep and gained what he could not lose.

A ‘missions’ statistic that profoundly challenged Jim was, “There is one Christian worker for every 50,000 people in foreign lands, while there is one to every 500 in the United States.” Early in 1952, Jim Elliot sailed for Ecuador. The plan was to locate in an old oil station that was abandoned because it was considered too dangerous for oil personnel. It was close to the Auca tribe and had a small airstrip. In February 1953, Jim and Elisabeth met in Quito and then on October 8, 1953 they were married. Their daughter, Valerie, was born two years later. Jim and Elisabeth worked together in translating the New Testament into the Quechua Indian language at the new mission station. The Aucas were a violent and murderous tribe and had never had any contact with the outside world. Jim wanted to bring the gospel there so he started a plan which was called Operation Auca. Besides him and his wife, his team consisted of five more missionary couples.

‘NOT A LONG LIFE, BUT A FULL ONE’

The men discovered the first Auca huts with the help of a missionary jungle pilot, Nate Saint. The first attempt to contact them was by airplane. They would fly around the camp shouting friendship words in the Auca language through a loud speaker and dropping down gifts in a basket. Encouraged by this progress, after three to four months of gift dropping, they decided to make a base on the Curray River, ‘Palm Beach’. After they had set up shelter they eventually made contact with the Aucas. After a little persuasion, they were able to convince some to come into their camp. Encouraged by this visit, the men felt that it was time to go in and try to minister to them.

One morning, after numerous songs of praise and considerable prayer, the men radioed their wives saying that they were going to go into the village and would radio them again later. ‘Operation Auca’ was under way. The next day, a group of twenty or thirty Aucas went to Palm Beach. “Guys, the Aucas are coming!” As soon as the others heard that, they flew into action straightening up their camp. Little did these five men know that this would be their last few hours of life. The last radio contact they made was Jim calling his wife saying, “We’ll call you back in three hours.” Jim Elliot’s body was found down stream with three others. Their bodies had been brutally pierced with spears and hacked by machetes.

After Jim’s death, Elisabeth, her daughter and another of the missionaries sister, Rachel, moved to work with the Auca Indians. The love of Christ shown through their forgiveness allowed them to have amazing success with the once murderous Indians. Jim’s life was not a waste, in fact, God used his death to bring life through salvation to many Aucas and encouragement and inspiration to thousands of believers worldwide.

I have read 2 books on the auca Indians account and have been so challenged not only by the love and faith of these men but by the gracious acceptance of their wives regarding their husbabds' martyrdom.

To top it all The movie The end of the spear shows an amazing story of forgiveness and sacrifice which is veru challenging.

I was challenged by the story of Jim Elliot and these men and the testimony of the families. My wife and I went from Ireland to Senegal and we worked with New Tribes Mission for 15 years. I have seen first hand many lives devoted to reaching the unreached. "Our liberty in Christ has come to us through the lives of many we ought to spend it wisely." Gordon Liston.

I think that that is quite amazing what Jim Eliot did for Jesus Christ ! It makes us think are we giving it all to Christ or are we just watching someone else give all they have to Jesus ? Choose today if your really going to live for him or not !
this is truly insperational to me ive been thinking about becoming a missonary for quite sometime now . God has truly put that on my hear. Btw lets not glorify Jim but God who did the work in him .smilies/smiley.gif

How nice. A group of people establish a nice relationship with an allegedly violent tribe and then proceed to tell them they are worthless scum that need to be saved and spread a message of hate and wind up dead. How predictable.

Did you think that maybe it might of been smarted to just establish a relationship with them rather than spreading a message of hate and labelling them as worthless scum?

When you read a story like this, the words all things work together for good springs to mind. But whose good? Jim for he is now with the Father in heaven. For the Indian tribe who now have the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached to them for the Salvation of their souls. Good also for Elizabeth who took up the mantle her husband laid down to continue the journey. Jim was a hero, but may I add that Elizabeth is hero too. I write because Elizabeth did not allow the flesh to over come the spirit to take these people as her enemy for killing her husband, but as her neighbors who were in need of Christ. I pray that when we are faced with situations that we do not understand that God enables us to see from His point of view just as Elizabeth did. God bless.

He is a modern day Stephen to us ,I still can't comprehend how a man of such caliber and talent would be willing to forsake everything for the sake of the gospel,what's even more challenging is the love the wives of these men showed towards these people even after they brutally murdered their husbands.

Then I googled and discovered this site.
What a legacy and an amazing testimony!
God be praised for his wife, life and ministry.
I echo my fellow blogger's prayer:
My our Heavenly Father raise up women and men of God in this generation of the same calibre!

What kind of a God would give me free will knowing that I would choose to be my own god and put myself above Him and His desires? And what kind of a God would wait for my return after I had taken what He gave me, misused it for my own satisfaction and helped others do the same? What kind of a God would still want me?...This kind of God I desire to know.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Elliot

this website shows that he was only 28... what a great way to die! He has done everything God wanted... Least we know now that he is walking around in the Heavenly places waiting for his obviously loving wife and his daughter, so they can party it up next door to the throne of God.

So amazed on how God worked in the lives of those who were left. Can't imagine the pain but no revenge yet GOD placed in their hearts the love so hard to understand, the grace so deep that I can't explain. Thank you LORD for showing us your amazing ways.

What was the name of the movie they made about this. We watched at church several yrs ago but I can't remember the name. Was telling a friend about this story but since my stroke can't remember a lot anymore. Thank you.

I am much influenced by missionary zeal of Jim Elliot. Jesus lives through the lives of such selfless people.

Bible verse

all nations will serve him - Psalm 72

Missions Quote

"We all have to wait until the astonishing discoveries will one day be made, and find out whose faithful prayer in hospitals, prisons, jungles, wheelchairs, crowded city apartments, cabins in the woods, farms, factories, or concentration camps has been a part of a specific victory in snatching someone from a circle of death, or in breaking chains so that there seems to be an ease for that one in stepping into new life. I feel sure that we'll be surprised beyond measure to discover who or how many will receive the rewards for their part in taking literally and with simple faith and trust the responsibility to intercede, to pray, to make requests day in and day out." - Edith Schaeffer
