Story of The Missionaries of Ecuador

The End of The Spear by Steve Saint and Through Gates of Splendor by Elisabeth Elliot are stories about missionaries to the First Nations people of Ecuador. 

Steve Saint was born in Quito, Ecuador and is son of Nate Saint, one of the five missionaries that was martyred by a First Nations people called the Waodani. 

Elisabeth Elliot is the wife of Jim Elliot, who was one of the martyred missionaries.

On January 8th, 1956, five American missionaries to Ecuador were martyred by Waodani warriors at the banks of the Curaray river. Once the missionaries learned that the Waodani were coming, they thought that the Waodani came in peace, but that was not the case. The warriors threw their spears at the missionaries, and none of the missionary men survived. Once Elisabeth Elliot and Rachel Saint (the aunt of Steve Saint) learned that the missionaries were killed, they did not allow that to stop them from reaching the Waodani with the Gospel. Later, they went back to the tribe and made peace. 

To this day, Steve Saint and many others are working with the Waodani, and many of them are Christians making an impact in their country.

The Leader's Edge

I just want to share a tool for people who want to be leaders, leaders that want to obey God by reaching others through leadership. This tool is called The Leader's Edge by Rick Green, Republican, former representative of Texas. I highly recommend this tool to leadership, and here are some things that it taught me:

1. How to effectively communicate.
2. How to speak in front of crowds without having problems.
3. Prevent stuff like: padding, getting stuck, and freezing.

It's Been A While.

It's been four months since I created and wrote on my blog. I'm back because I found a comment on The Rebelution by me that said this:
My name is Michael and I'm 14 and one of my goals is starting a blog to inspire other teens to follow God and reach the world. I want to see teens and young people change the world. I want to see teens and young people to be Warriors on their knees. I want to see teens and young people know that their God is always with them and is One Step Away. Praise be to God the Highest!
1 Timothy 4:12 "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." 
Obey God, Reach Others
This was also four months ago. And I literally forgot that I was going to write a blog. I first called it "Obey God, Reach Others" but then my first article didn't sound like it was about "obeying God and reaching others" so I decided to changed it to "Michael Goddard II" so that would fit what I write. But now I would want to change it back to "Obey God, Reach Others" because I think the Michael four months ago wanted to call it "Obey God, Reach Others" hope I can continue to write on this blog.

I'm going to try to write at least once a week.

Obey God, Reach Others
