One of My Heroes Was in An Accident

Steve Saint is one of my heroes, and he was in a serious accident several weeks ago. More on that later…

Although it will take a few minutes, I want to urge you to watch both of the videos included. You won't regret it. (And watch them in order.)

Steve's book "The Great Omission" is one of my three favorite books on missions, and had a huge impact on me. Steve Saint is the son of Nate Saint, who was killed in Ecuador, along with Jim Elliott.

It is a long story (and I would urge you to read "The Great Omission") but Steve Saint felt that the way we do missions was very broken and he has set out to change it, and he is doing it!

He invented a flying car to use on mission fields for natives to travel to hard-to-reach villiages (you can see that video here):


A few weeks ago Steve was in a serious accident while experimenting with another invention. Here is part one:


His focus on the Gospel and getting others to be committed to missions in the first week of his recovery blows me away.

More on this tomorrow…

As always, if you receive this by email – click HERE or click on the title above to see the video.


  1. Wow! Steve’s commitment to Christ is amazing. Even in his tough circumstance he’s focused on building up the body of Christ and telling others about Jesus.

  2. It didn’t happen to me and the first thing I asked was why. Obviously I’m not even close to where I should be in my walk. Will the story that began in Ecuador ever cease to shape my convictions? I don’t think so. I hope not. If my walk and understanding are so far removed from Steve Saint’s, how far removed am I from Jesus’? The answer is not pretty. Thank you for sharing.
