Join the conversation with Steve Saint on the 65th anniversary of “Operation Auca.” In 1956, Steve’s dad, Nate, along with Jim Elliot, Ed McCully, Peter Fleming, and Roger Youderian were speared to death by the Waodani tribe whom they were trying to reach. Steve shares intimate details from this story, and ultimately shares how the story that God began to reveal in 1956 is still being written to this day.

    Thank you so much Steve. We have learned so much of your story, or as you may put it, God’s story, from your books and movies and from visiting ITEC. But we really enjoyed hearing some of the back story through this interview. You have been a very busy man and still are and it makes us want to get busy in our own lives with sharing in any way we can.
    We both wish you and Ginny a happy anniversery and you a happy birthday.
    Prayers for you and your whole family for your continued story,
    Ken and Sharyn Thurber
