Through the Gates of Splendor: A Memorial to Elisabeth Elliot


In the Spring of 2004, I went on a mission trip to Ecuador through Taylor World Outreach, a program run at the college I attended.  We spent a few days in Quito at the beginning and end of our trip, but the bulk of our work was centered around Shell, where we stayed in the hospital built by Jim Elliot and Nate Saint, whose story is chronicled by Elisabeth Elliot in Through the Gates of Splendor.  The above picture is of the bridge we crossed daily to reach the hospital and village.
