  • 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

  1. YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS

    Many, who profess to be Christians, claim the Jesus is just one of many ways to heaven. If men would simply believe that the Bible is the only inerrant source for truth they could not reach that conclusion.

    John 8:24 "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins;for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins."(NKJV)

    If you do not believe that Jesus is the Christ you will die in your sins. No man-made creed book can change that fact. To reject Jesus as the Messiah is the clear path to dying without forgiveness from sins.

    John 4:25-26 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). When He comes, He will tell us all things." 26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."(NKJV)

    It does not matter how many Bible commentators or self-proclaimed Bible scholars believe Jesus is one of many ways to heaven, Jesus is the only Messiah.

    John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (NKJV)

    One way Jesus.

    Acts 4:10-12.....name of Jesus Christ....12 "Nor is salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)

    Pope Francis says atheists who do good works can go to heaven. Billy Graham proclaims that you do not even have to know the name of Jesus to be part of the body of Christ. Joel Osteen say he does not know if unbelievers will be lost or saved because he cannot judge. These professing Christians are not alone in their views. How sad is that?

    PEW FORUM OF RELIGION AND PUBLIC LIFE: 57% of the evangelical church believes there are many religions that lead to eternal life.

    IF YOU TRUST THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE FOR THE TRUTH, YOU WILL BELIEVE THE WORDS OF JESUS. "IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM HE YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS."
