America is getting older. In 1950, near the beginning of the Baby Boom era, the average life expectancy of Americans was 68. Today, it is 79. By the year 2040, one in five Americans will be over the traditional retirement age of 65.
Today, January 8, marks the sixtieth anniversary of the deaths of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Ed McCully, Pete Flemming, and Roger Youderian who were killed by tribal peoples they were trying to reach with the Gospel.
