ANNIVERSARY OF MARTYRDOM OF ECUADOR MISSIONARIES

Today in 1956, five missionaries to the Auca indians in Ecuador were killed. Their deaths brought a sudden end to the project they called “Operation Auca,” but the tragedy became a defining moment in the history of evangelical missions. Hundreds of young people were inspired to take up missionary work, thousands were moved to deeper commitment to Christ, and millions of dollars in resources were mobilized. And the work with the Aucas went on, too.

  1. These five brave men (Roger Youdarian, Pete Fleming, Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, and Ed McCully), set the stage for missionaries and missionary work around the globe by standing for Christ in the face of extreme adversity, despite overwhelming circumstances. They paid with their very lives! We acknowledged them then, and we acknowledge them now! God bless them for their courage and their love for Christ!
