Sixty Years Ago Today!

What a significant event happened sixty years ago today! After we watched this video, my grandpa began sharing stories about Jim Elliot. He and Jim led a youth group together at Lombard Gospel Chapel, and Jim was in my grandparents’ wedding. I have appreciated hearing stories from them, both serious and funny, about how Jim was the “real deal” – with a huge heart for God and people…even walking in between stopped cars at traffic lights to pass out gospel tracts 🙂

  1. Wow Jim Elliot story is one of my favorites I heard his wife tell it at a Chicago conference- i went with Natalie Naas

  2. Such powerful message… Especially poignant for me was the picture of Mr Fleming with his arm around his brother’s killer, and what Mr Fleming said right after that: “We now are brothers in Christ”.
    Thank you so much for sharing!
