The Other Elliot Son

Most of us have heard the story of Jim Elliot and the five missionaries who died in Ecuador at the hands of the Auca Indians. That story is Chronicled in the book “Through Gates of Splendor.” A great story that has inspired thousands. Until I saw this talk by Randy Alcorn, which comes from the Desiring God Conference “Stand” I never knew the story of his brother. Bert Elliott has been in Peru since before Jim Elliot went to the mission field. He and his wife stayed there until past their eighties. What kind of work did he do? watch this video to find out and be inspired!

this second video is contains the interview with some of the people involved in the killing of the missionary, including a man who has become a christian.
