Elisabeth Elliot Devotional

For almost a year my wife has been enjoying the daily devotional email written specifically for women by Elisabeth Elliot. It is a great resource for women and a quick read. No matter how busy your day is it will be a blessing to you. You can go here to subscribe to the email or link to it through your web browser. If you are not familiar with Elisabeth’s testimony, it is one of the most beautiful and redemptive stories I’ve heard. Here is Elisabeth’s website and a link to the documentary that was made about her life and the lives of the missionary couples who went to South America in the 50’s to share Christ with the tribal people in the Amazon jungle. Elisabeth’s husband along with several other men lost their lives while attempting to share Christ with the Quichua Indians. Elisabeth and her children later went and lived with the tribe who murdered her husband. While working with them she had the privilege of seeing many put their faith in Christ and experienced how the grace of God transformed a brutal tribe into a peaceful community of faith. The documentary is called “Beyond the Gates of Splendor” and is well worth your time.
