BP This Week: The Death of Missions?

Plus: Joni Eareckson Tada; the GC2 Summit Responding to Sexual Violence

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer discuss the reaction of the media to the death of  missionary John Allen Chau, who was killed by a remote Indian tribe–and compare it to the Life Magazine story of the death of Jim Elliott some 60 years ago.  They also thank God for those men and women who put their lives on the line bringing the Gospel to every tribe, tongue, and nation.

They also talk about the latest cancer diagnosis for Joni Eareckson Tada and ask for our prayers on her bahalf.

Finally be sure to check out the Billy Graham Center’s GC2 Summit on Responding to Sexual Violence.
