Read this book!

My wife and I just got through reading, "Through Gates of Splendor," by Elisabeth Elliot. She tells the story of her young husband Jim and his four fellow-missionaries (Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, Nate Saint, and Roger Youderian) and their attempt to reach the Aucas with the gospel of Christ. On January 8th, 1956, they were speared to death by the people they hoped to reach. As a result, their story has become known worldwide. It's embarassing for me to admit that I'd never read the book (or any other about it), which is a shame.

You need to read this book! It's inspiring, encouraging and motivating. You can order it here or here. Elliot paints a tremendous picture of God's providence and provision. Tolle Lege!
