QUOTE (David Brainerd) – Oct 5

October 5, 2014

English: David Brainerd (1718-1747)

“My desires seem especially to be after weanedness from the world, perfect deadness to it, and that I may be crucified to all its allurements. My soul desires to feel itself more of a pilgrim and a stranger here below, that nothing may divert me from pressing through the lonely desert, till I arrive at my Father’s house.” ~ David Brainerd

In honor of David Brainerd, an American missionary to the Delaware Indians of New Jersey, who began ministering to the Indians on this day in 1744.

“And people who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives… and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted.”
~ Nate Saint

In honor of Plymouth Brethren missionaries, Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully and Pete Fleming, who were killed by the Auca Indians, on this day in 1956.
