Faithful Fridays~Dating

Faithful Fridays is a day where Christians can share there faith, a song, a bible verse, a bible study that you are working through or anything that God has put on your heart to share. You can go to Joy's blog Doodle Bug to get the rules and picture.
Last night at youth the youth pastor said a little thing about dating and I would like to share that today.
There is nothing in the Bible about dating. But really dating is pointless. I mean you waste time and feelings with someone you probably won't even marry. Just wait until you know that it is the person God wants you to be married to the rest of your life. God has planned out your life perfectly so just let Him take control, He knows what He is doing.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Rachel Saint

  • She was born on January 2, 1914 in Wyncote, Pennsylvania to Lawrence and Katherine Saint.
  • Her brother was the pilot missionary Nate Saint.
  • Her first missionary assignment was to the Piro and Sharpa Indian tribes in Peru, but she felt like God was calling her to the Waorani.
  • In February 1955 she and Catherine Peeke went to a missionary station near Waorani territory.
  • Rachel started learning the Waorani language with the help of Dayuma, a Waorani woman who had left her people after a dispute and was sheltered by missionaries.
  • In January 1956, five missionaries in the area were killed by Waorani people, including her brother Nate Saint. As a result, she considered herself spiritually bonded to the tribe.
  •  In 1957 she went on a tour of the United States together with Dayuma, appearing with Billy Graham at Madison Square Garden and on Ralph Edwards' television show This Is Your Life.
  • In the summer of 1958 Rachel Saint returned to the Waorani in Ecuador with Elisabeth Elliot, the wife of Jim Elliot who was killed by the Waorani.
  • In February 1959 they were able to move into a Waorani settlement. Where the five American men had failed to gain entrance into the Waorani society, these two unarmed women (as well as Elliot's little daughter) were not perceived as a threat.
  • Rachel lived there for over ten years.
  • She died on November 11, 1994 in Quito, Ecuador from cancer.(1994-11-11) in       in
