He is No Fool

Jim Elliot was a young man compelled to take the gospel to those who had never heard. His last opportunity in the jungles was with the Auca Indians. His ministry came to an end on January 8, 1956; his mutilated body was later found floating in the Ewenguno River. A verse from his journals expresses the essence of his conviction:

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
