Plus, a great hero of the Faith:
Elisabeth Elliot was a young missionary in Ecuador when members of a violent Amazonian tribe savagely speared her husband Jim and his four colleagues. Incredibly, prayerfully, Elisabeth took her toddler daughter, snakebite kit, Bible, and journal . . . and lived in the jungle with the Stone-Age people who killed her husband. Compelled by her friendship and forgiveness, many came to faith in Jesus. This courageous, no-nonsense Christian went on to write dozens of books, host a long-running radio show, and speak at conferences all over the world. Author Ellen Vaughn has written a brand new book about Elizabeth: Becoming Elisabeth Elliot. Ellen joins us in the 8 am ET hour to share a bit of her journey. You'll be inspired and challenged.
