Fred was of Scottish heritage; his grandparents were the first of his family to settle in North America. Clara's parents moved near the turn of the 20th century from Switzerland to eastern Washington, where they operated a large ranch. They met in Portland, where Clara was studying to be a chiropractor and Fred, having devoted himself to Christian ministry, was working as a traveling preacher with the Plymouth Brethren church.
Elliot professed faith in Jesus at the age of six and grew up in a home where obedience and honesty were enforced. The Elliot parents encouraged their children to be adventurous, and encouraged them to "live for Christ". There he participated in numerous activities, including the school newspaper, the wrestling team, school plays, and the public-speaking club.
His acting ability led some of the teachers in the school to suggest that he pursue acting as a career, and his oratorical skills were similarly lauded—after preparing and delivering a speech in honor of President Franklin D. Roosevelt hours after his death, a faculty member praised it.
A classmate recounts how Elliot quoted the Bible to the president of the student body as an explanation for his refusal to Jim elliot a school party. Another time, Elliot risked expulsion from the public-speaking club by refusing to Jim elliot a political speech, believing that Christians were not to involve themselves in politics.
A pacifisthe rejected the idea of using force to eliminate slavery in Africaand he was prepared to stand as a conscientious objector had he been drafted to serve in World War II. The missionary told him of the Huaorani — also called the "Auca", the Quichua word for "savage" — a group of Ecuadorian indigenous people considered violent and dangerous to outsiders.
Elliot remained unsure about whether to go to Ecuador or India until July.
His parents and friends wondered if he might instead be more effective in youth ministry in the United States, but considering the home church "well-fed", he felt that international missions should take precedence. However, two months later Cathers informed him that he planned to marry, making it impossible for him to accompany Elliot as they had planned.
That man turned out to be Pete Fleminga graduate of the University of Washington with a degree in philosophy. He corresponded frequently with Elliot, and by September he was convinced of his calling to Ecuador. In his journal he expressed hope that they would be able to be married, but at the same time felt that he was called to go to Ecuador without her.
Elliot returned to Portland in November and began to prepare to leave the country. They first stayed in Quitoand then moved to the jungle. They took up residence at the Shandia mission station. On October 8,he married fellow Wheaton alumna and missionary Elisabeth Howard.
The wedding was a simple civil ceremony held in Quito. Ed and Marilou McCully were the witnesses. The couple then took a brief honeymoon to Panama and Costa Rica, then returned to Ecuador. Their only child, Valerie, was born February 27, While working with Quechua Indians, Elliot began preparing to reach the Huaorani.
After several months, the men decided to build a base a short distance from the Indian village, along the Curaray River. There they were approached one time by a small group of Huaorani and even gave an airplane ride to one curious Huaorani whom they called "George" his real name was Naenkiwi.
Encouraged by these friendly encounters, they began plans to visit the Huaorani, without knowing that Naenkiwi had lied to the others about the missionaries' intentions.
Jim Elliot was the first of the five missionaries killed when he and Peter Fleming were greeting two of those attackers that showed themselves pretending they were interested in taking plane rides with them. Elliot's body was found downstream, along with those of the other men, except that of Ed McCully which was found even farther downstream.
It is close to a saying of the English nonconformist preacher Philip Henry — who said "He is no fool who parts with that which he cannot keep, when he is sure to be recompensed with that which he cannot lose".
After his death, his wife Elisabeth Elliot and other missionaries began working among the Huaorani, where they continued evangelistic work.
She later published two books, Shadow of the Almighty: Ina theatrical movie was released, entitled End of the Spearbased on the story of the pilot, Nate Saint, and the return trip of Saint's son attempting to reach the natives of Ecuador.Even More Vintage Vinyl!
