As a very young boy, Steve Saint lost his father, Nate, to savage Amazon warriors. The same day, Bram’s predecessor, Norm Nelson, lost his friend, mentor, and hero. The irony of it was that It came to be known as one of the greatest tragedies and spiritual victories of the 20th Century. Over the next few years, the murderer of Steve’s father came to saving faith and adopted the son of the man he had slain. The extraordinary man’s name was ‘Mincaye.’
With the news of Mincaye’s passing to Glory last week, the whole epic story of the five missionaries who met their Maker on a sandbar in the Amazon is back in the news. Today and tomorrow, Bram and Cher explore the legacy of that momentous event and the people it transformed.
