21 Days – Trip B
In 1952 five young men set out on an adventure to change Ecuador. Little did these men know that in 1956 their lives would end at the end of a spear. They gave everything for the gospel to reach a tribe no one cared about. Their challenge to you is to pick up where they left off. Jim Eliot, Nate Saint, Ed McCully, Roger Youderian, and Pete Fleming gave their lives to reach a tribe. Pick up their banner and head back into the jungles of Ecuador to continue what they started!
