Death at 26
A life well-lived is how I would call John Allen Chau’s story—a 26-year old American missionary who was killed off the coast of India. He “attempted to share the gospel with the most isolated tribe in the world.”
News like this gives me hope. To the rest of the world’s eyes, this is a waste. From a spiritual perspective, this is just the opposite. John Allen Chau’s death has adorned the gospel. He loved the Lord Jesus Christ so much that he chose to preach the gospel of salvation to the unreached, choosing this path in life over the comforts of a first-world home.
May the Lord use his example to remind us that there are many people groups in the world that have not yet heard of Jesus.

Not just a waste, he's castigated as an idiot and a threat to the islanders by bringing communicable disease that could wipe them out, and someone trying to do something illegal in approaching the island coastline which was apparently declared an independent state by the Indian government and not to be visited. Oh, and he's judged as a braggart/arrogant based on his IG account. This is from the Straight Dope message board.ReplyDelete
