Flying High R120
By Betty Greene and Dietrich Buss
This book chronicles Betty Greene's work as cofounder of Mission Aviation Fellowship and the ministry's first pilot in the early years of MAF. Max Meyers (a past president of MAF) writes that Betty was both legendary and a sweet, warm loving person. Another past MAF president, Chuck Bennett, lists her accomplishments as amazing: “first to fly across the Andes ... the first female pilot, and first of either gender to fly in Mexico, Peru, and Nigeria.” Inspirational!
Jungle Pilot R120
By Russell T. Hitt
A missions classic. The history of MAF pilot, Nate Saint, martyred in Ecuador in 1956.
A probing account of Nate Saint's life, and whether his death at the hands of the Waodani (Aucas) had a purpose in God's plan. Nate's son, Stephen, helps to answer some of these questions in an epilog he wrote in 1997 for this updated edition of the book. Steve verifies Russell Hitt's thesis that God was indeed glorified by the five martyred missionaries.
Jim Elliot Story R120
Geared for children ages 8-12, this stunning, half-hour, action-packed program uses top quality animation to bring to life the story of missionary martyr Jim Elliot.
The year was 1956. From the steamy jungles of Ecuador, news spread around the world that five young American men were mercilessly killed by members of the Auca tribe (now known as the Waodani)--a people those young men had gone to serve and befriend. That seemingly senseless tragedy a half century ago has become an inspirational marvel as that same tribe is now friends with the families of those they killed! This is the story of one of those brave torchlighters--Jim Elliot.
Jim Elliot spent his youth preparing to share the Gospel with those who'd never heard it. But nothing could have prepared him for the dangers and challenges he'd face in the jungles of Ecuador. The remote Auca tribe was suspicious and antagonistic toward even the most friendly of gestures from outsiders. Would Jim and his fellow missionaries ever be able to break down the hostile barriers and carry a torch of faith to this savage people determined to attack all outsiders?
