Author-Missionary Steve Saint to Speak at LeTourneau University

Wed, Jan 28 2009

LeTourneau University will host well-known author Steve Saint from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan 28, 2009, in the S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave.
Steve was born and raised in Ecuador where his parents were missionaries. His father, Nate
Saint, was the “Jungle Pilot” who was one of five young men killed in 1956 by the Waodani Indians.
            Steve Saint first wrote The Great Omission: Fulfilling Christ's Commission Completely which shows how current missions’ strategies have unwittingly harmed the indigenous church and kept millions of believers from fulfilling their roles in God's Kingdom and millions of others from hearing the Good News.
His second book was End of the Spear which focuses on the Huaorani tribe of Eastern Ecuador.  The tribe was became known as turning from violent savages to “God Followers.” End of the Spear was made into a movie in 2006 and won the grand prize for dramatic feature at the Heartland Film Festival. 
Saint’s most recent book was Walking His Trail: Signs of God Along the Way which is a series of adventurous, inspiring stories of how God makes himself known through both the dramatic and the seemingly mundane events of life.
Saint spoke in LETU chapel about for the need of North American Christians to change their attitudes about changing the world’s cultures.  He said missionaries should take Jesus into the world, but not necessarily the American way of life.
