Widows hear the news of their husband's deaths.
Elliot and his friends became instantly known worldwide as martyrs, and Life Magazine published a 10-page article on their mission and death. They are credited with sparking an interest in Christian missions among the American youths of their time, and are still considered an encouragement to Christian missionaries working throughout the world.
After their deaths, there were many conversions to Christianity among the other Indian tribes of Ecuador. Later, Elisabeth Elliot and her daughter Valerie moved to work in the Auca Indian village. They were joined by Rachel Saint (Nate's sister) who also felt a burden to take the Gospel to those who had killed her brother. Their example of forgiveness and love for the ones who murdered their family members allowed them to have amazing success with the once murderous Indians. Many Aucas now live for Christ and are busy sharing the Gospel with others. Nate's son, spent a lot of time with his Aunt Rachel with these Indians. In an unbelievable expression of reconciliation, Steve Saint, Nate’s son, was baptized by two of the men who murdered his father, in the very river where his father died. Steve Saint has worked as a missionary in West Africa, Central America and South America. At the request of the Waodani elders, he returned to the Amazon in 1995 along with his wife and children.
Elisabeth Elliott, had her own ministry as a Christian author, speaker and had a radio program (Gateway to Joy) in her later years.
