Episode 48: Through Gates of Splendor
On 8 January, 1956, five Christian missionaries were martyred by members of the Huaorani people as they sought to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the Ecuadorian rain forest. Elisabeth Elliot, wife of Jim, one of the martyred missionaries, tells the story in her book Through Gates of Splendor.
In this episode of Table Talk, Tyrell is joined by Josh Mack, pastor-teacher of Living Hope Church in Pretoria, to talk about the story of the martyred missionary and their legacy.
