53 years ago today

53 years ago today five American missionaries were murdered on the bank of a South American river by people they loved, prayed for, sacrificed for in the name of Jesus. We honor their memory today.

If we do not die martyrs' deaths, may we live with martyrs' hearts. As one of them was famous for saying, "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."
