Unsung Heroes – Bert & Colleen Elliot posted by John Sorensen on Jun 19, 2018
Have you ever heard of Bert Elliot? He and his wife Colleen are Unsung Heroes of the Faith.”
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, president of Evangelism Explosion International. Jim Elliot is a known hero of the faith as one of the five missionaries martyred in 1956 in Ecuador. Bert is Jim’s “unsung” brother. In 1949, Bert and his wife Colleen began missionary work in Peru. For the next 60 years, they lead thousands to the Lord and started nearly 200 churches. They were in their 80’s and still on the mission field when the Lord called them home to Heaven. Bert once said that Jim was like a “great meteor, streaking through the sky.” Bert and Colleen, however, have been compared to faithful stars shining day in and day out, committed to sharing the Gospel. These two unsung heroes of the faith can inspire and encourage all of us to share our faith daily. Are you? If not, why not? If you need help, we hold training events across the country.
