Meeting Steve Saint

Eric recently had the opportunity to attend the Osh Kosh Fly In, a yearly air show and gathering of thousands of planes in Wisconsin. His purpose in going was to meet Steve Saint, son of martyred missionary Nate Saint. Many years after his father was killed by the Huadoni Indians Steve took his family to live with the same tribe (who became Christians after the killings took place - see the movie "End of the Spear" or "Behond the Gates of Splendor.") The Indians asked Steve to help them become more "modern" as society was fast approaching the jungle. Part of that process led to Steve creating a "flying car". The flying car would allow Indians in the Ecuadorian jungle the ability to transport people to medical centers as well as carry cargo that normally would have to be walked in for 3-4 days.

On another note, thought you might like to see the "finished" product. This is Eric's brother's boat that Eric helped to "restore" over the past several months.

  1. Now that's just cool, meeting Steve Saint. You guys found me on twitter - check out my blog at wordsfromwarr.blogspot.com and the camp ministry I'm with at www.campvictoryal.org - who knows, maybe you'll be our missionary speakers sometime!

  2. Glad that you got a chance to meet Steve. He is one of my father's childhood friends from Ecuador (my grandparents served with HCJB and now I'm following in their footsteps). I went to visit him last year and took this video of the hangar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SShT02fI5VI

  3. I haven't seen End of the Spear, but loved watching Gates of Splendor with our kids. What a great and memorable blessing to meet Steve Saint and how cool that he is still being used by God to minister the tribe that killed his dad. Hope that you will be able to get to Ecuador full-time soon. The whole support-raising thing is where we are currently bogged down in ministry. I wish you well in this and will pray that 100% comes in quickly and abundantly!

  8. I'm personal friends with Elisabeth Elliot's daughter. Her husband used to be our pastor. What a wonderful family!
