60th Anniversary of Missionary Deaths Trying to Reach a Cannibalistic Tribe Bent on Self-Destruction. Their Courage and Deaths Led to a Missionary Surge
“God’s refuge for his people is not from suffering and death, but final and ultimate defeat.
God did not exercise his omnipotence to deliver Jesus from the cross. Nor will he exercise it to deliver you and me from tribulation.
“In the darkest moments of our pain, God is hiding his weapons behind enemy lines.”
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:36–39)."
