Avoiding the Irrelevant Question

Dannah Gresh: Ellen Vaughn has pored over the private journals of the late Elisabeth Elliot. She describes a poignant moment after Elisabeth and Valerie Elliot had gone to live among the Waodani [also referred to as Auca] people in Ecuador.

Ellen Vaughn: She sees this strong, young man by the firelight. Valerie, who’s just a little girl, says, “Mommy, is that my daddy?”

And Elisabeth: “The truth is, no, that’s not your daddy. In fact, that man is one of the ones who killed your daddy.”

Dannah: Today we’ll see that, even though it sounds impressive for Elisabeth to live among the very ones who violently murdered her husband, it wasn’t all daisies and butterflies. There was emotional pain mixed in with the joy.

This is Revive Our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, co-author of You Can Trust God to Write Your Story, for September 18, 2020. I’m Dannah Gresh. …
