Dennis Rainey hears a remarkable story of reconciliation as told by Steve Saint, son of martyred missionary Nate Saint, one of five men killed in January 1956 when trying to reach the Auca Indians for Christ. Joining Steve on the broadcast is Mart Green, founder of Bearing Fruit Communications, which has turned Nate’s life into a film called End of the Spear, and Mincaye, the Auca Indian who killed Steve’s father years ago and who is now Steve’s beloved brother in Christ.
Mart Green is CEO and Producer of Bearing Fruit Communications. In this role, he combines his passion for telling true stories with his experience of building well-run, customer-oriented companies.
Bearing Fruit Communications produced the 2006 movie End of the Spear and Beyond The Gates of Splendor. Before starting Bearing Fruit Communications, he built Mardel Christian and Educational Supply, a growing chain of 21 stores in six states. Mart's family founded Hobby Lobby, which now has 370 stores throughout 28 states. Mart serves on the board of Hobby Lobby.
Steve Saint grew up in Ecuador in close community with the Waodani. His father, Nate Saint, was one of five missionaries martyred in their attempt to befriend the Waodani. After graduating from Wheaton College, Steve launched several successful businesses. He has also been a missionary in West Africa, Central America, and South America. At the request of the Waodani elders, he returned to the Amazon in 1995 along with his family. Steve's experiences living in the jungle led him to establish I-TEC, a nonprofit organization that assists the "hidden church" in its journey toward independence, self-sustenance, and maturity.
