Gateway to Joy

Weekly Air Time:
Monday - Friday: 11:15 AM

Elisabeth Elliot was one of the most influential Christian women of our time. Her best selling books, timeless teachings and courageous faith have influenced believers and seekers of Jesus Christ throughout the world. She used her experiences as a daughter, wife, mother, widow, and missionary to bring the message of Christ to countless people around the world.

Elisabeth's first husband, Jim Elliot, was killed in 1956 while attempting to make missionary contact with the Auca (now known as Huaorani) of eastern Ecuador. Elisabeth later spent two years as a missionary to the tribe members who killed her husband. Returning to the United States after many years in South America, she became widely known as the author of over twenty books and as a speaker in constant demand. She went home to Heaven in 2015, but her program continues to bless many.
