He pulled back on the wheel and sent
the airplane heavenbound.
He pushed it forward and the airplane's
nose dipped toward the ground.
It felt like a roller coaster
and there was no doubt
Nate's future was in flying; it
was all he talked about.
From the moment seven-year-old Nate Saint (1923-1956) took his first flight in his big brother's airplane, flying captured his heart. When he grew up, Nate flew his own plane over the jungles of a country far away, helping missionaries reach the people of Ecuador with God's great love. As Nate flew over the villages of the feared Auca Indians, he longed for them to know God. Nate and his friends lost their lives trying to befriend them, but God made Nate's dream for the Aucas come true.
