Inspiring Story: What We Cannot Lose

Wow! Today is the official kickoff of Inspiring Story, a meme by a good friend of mine at the DCF blog. Miss S invited me to participate in this, and although I have done it sporadically within the past year, I hope to be a little more faithful this time around. So here is a repost of one of my favorite videos of all time. This was a tip from The Other Alice, and I am SO glad she shared it with me. In this video, Steven Curtis Chapman does a "musical tale," sharing the story of the five missionaries that ministered to the Auca tribe and were martyred for it. I'm no good at telling the story, but prepare to watch this tear-jerker, and as always, head over to As In A Mirror to read all about about Operation Auca! Oh, and be sure to check out Miss S's blog for an AMAZING inspiring story! :)

  1. Oh, I LOVE that video!!!!! It tells the story so well, better than I ever could; but I cry every time I watch it... Thanks for linking to my blog. :)

  2. what a beautiful video... thanks for sharing with us!!

  3. I've heard this story before. I was 19 years old in 1956. I think I heard about it at the time. It was so long ago and I know I've heard it in more recent years, but had never seen this marvelous video. Today was Missionary Sunday at our church and we heard a lot about missions. This is the perfect time for me to see this video. Thank you so much for sharing it. Thank you for sharing it on Spiritual Sundays.

  4. Hi Jay,

    Thanks for linking up! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this video; it's one of my all-time favs. I'm so glad you posted it! I think the songs go so well with the message: "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."

    God bless,
    Miss S.
