End of the Spear

I saw End of the Spear last night and thoroughly enjoyed the portrayal of the lay (Protestant) missionaries who risked their lives to bring Christ to the native peoples of Ecuador. The group was among the founders of Mission Aviation Fellowship which continues to evangelize today.

It is a very poignant film and brings to mind the imperative to preach the Gospel to all nations. Do we have the missionary zeal required by our Faith? Are we prepared to preach Christ to all whom we meet -- regardless of the consequences?
