Note: Jim Elliot, a modern martyr, gained international recognition when he died with four others at the hands of the Auca Indians.  His story and memoirs have been a source of missionary inspiration through the writing and speaking of his wife, Elizabeth.

    Wow!! What a beautiful picture and text.
    I recently discovered a new book of transcribed spoken messages given by Jim Elliot before he left for the mission field. It is not only a very inspiring book but is also full of quotable statements – you would probably find it very interesting and resourceful. (JIM ELLIOT: A Christian Martyr Speaks to You – ISBN 9781615797646)
    Thanks again for the great post!
