Event description

Description

Featured Speakers: Valerie Elliot Shepard and her husband Rev. Walt Shepard.

Valerie is the only daughter of missionary parents Jim and Elisabeth Elliot. Jim was killed in 1956 with four other missionaries during an attempt to reach the Auca Indians with the Gospel. Elisabeth and Valerie later lived with those same Indians for 2 years with another missionary Rachel Saint and most of the tribe became Christians.

Walter grew up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo with his missionary parents. Valerie has spent 41 years being a pastor’s wife, raising 8 children, homeschooling, and teaching Bible studies. Valerie and Walter’s ministry has been one of hospitality, leading prayer meetings, and learning to live in God’s grace with joy. She has spoken at many retreats for women and has shared some of the radio ministry, called “Gateway to Joy,” with her mother, on Back to the Bible Broadcasting Network.
