Through Gates of Splendor: The Elisabeth Elliot Story

In a new “Personal Stories” exhibit opening March 30, Museum of the Bible will explore the life of Christian missionary Elisabeth Elliot. In 1958, Elisabeth Elliot returned to the Ecuadorian rainforest to live with the tribe who had killed her husband only two years earlier. Her choice to forgive, rather than retaliate, sparked a change in the Waodäni, who left behind a cycle of violence to embrace a life of love. Elliot’s remarkable story rippled across the globe, inspiring millions to serve God through missions. Come explore the life and legacy of Elisabeth Elliot.
