Elisabeth Elliot (1926 – 2015)

Elisabeth Elliot, wife of the martyr Jim Elliot, fell asleep today at the age of 88.

As I contemplate the beautiful lives of Jim and Elisabeth, I cannot help but cry. May God’s providence allow me to imitate either of their deaths! One life ending in youth (age 28) for the cause of Christ. Another ending in old age for the cause of Christ. Two worthy ways to live and die for the Lord.

Elisabeth Elliot, now seeing and beholding Jesus, face to face, hand in hand.


“Is the distinction between living for Christ and dying for Him so great? Is not the second the logical conclusion of the first?” — Elisabeth Elliot

“When the time comes to die, make sure that all you have to do is die!” — Jim Elliot
