It's no secret that when we think of missionaries, we think of them as people who seek to make a big impact for God. Many of us may feel that in our own lives, we're not equipped for something that great. Ed Stetzer sits down with author Gilbert Gleason to talk about Bert and Colleen Elliot, who served as missionaries in Peru for 60 years. They planted 150 churches there. And their secret? Simple daily faithfulness, listening to Jesus and loving people in His name. Something we all can do.
Gilbert Gleason grew up on the Navajo Reservation in northern Arizona, where his parents were missionaries. That experience enriched his understanding of the opportunities and challenges of missionary life. He married Sue Elliot in 1979 and has pastored Grace Bible Fellowship since 1981. Gilbert teaches mission classes for Perspectives on the World Christian Movement. For many years he served on the board of Eagle Fern Camp and is currently on the board of the Elisabeth Elliot Foundation.
