       Jim Elliot
       Philip James Elliot was an evangelical Christian missionary to Ecuador who, along with four others, was killed while attempting to evangelize the Waodani people through efforts known as Operation Auca.
       Elliot and his friends became instantly known worldwide as martyrs, and Life Magazine published a ten-page article on their mission and death. They are credited with sparking an interest in Christian missions among the youth of their time and are still considered an encouragement to Christian missionaries working throughout the world.
       After her husband's death, Elisabeth Elliot and other missionaries began working among the Auca Indians, where they had a profound impact and helped bring many people to Christ. She later published two books, Shadow of the Almighty: The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot and Through Gates of Splendor, which describe the life and death of her husband.
