The Life of a Saint

I finally got a chance to rent and view the movie, "End of the Spear" this past weekend -- the film based on the true story of 5 missionaries who were killed by the Waodani tribe in Ecuador as they tried to bring them the Good News of Jesus Christ.

The film focuses mainly on Nate Saint, the missionary pilot who flies into the jungle with the other men to reach the people there. I've become more interested in this story because I teach with Phil Saint, Nate's youngest son. My son, Gregory, is in his 4th grade class.

Phil's older brother, Steve, has gone back to Ecuador several times to reconnect with the tribe and continue to minister the Gospel.

What an amazing story and film!
