Missionary Documentary

Agape Press has a story today about a missionary documentary.

Beyond the Gates of Splendor details the deaths of missionaries Nate Saint, Jim Elliot, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully and Roger Youderian, who were violently killed in the remote Ecuadorian jungle by the notoriously savage Waodani tribe known then as Aucas. With first-hand accounts from the missionaries’ widows and interviews with their children and the actual tribesmen involved in the missionaries’ killings, the documentary provides a compelling look into the spearing deaths that providentially changed the violent nature of the tribe. It also details the remarkable story of how two American women reached out and brought peace to the Waodani people as a result of the spearings by living among the very people who killed their loved ones.

[Update 2012-12-26 16:12:07] Agape Press has changed names and I can’t find old articles.  I’ve updated the link to the wikipedia page on the theatrical version.
