“End of the Spear”: Movie about murdered missionaries is more relevant than ever
End of the Spear is a American drama film that recounts the story of Operation Auca , in which five American Christian missionaries attempted to evangelize the Huaorani Waodani people of the tropical rain forest of Eastern Ecuador. Based on actual events from in which five male missionaries were speared by a group of the Waodani tribe, the movie tells the story from the perspective of Steve Saint the son of Nate Saint , one of the missionaries killed in the encounter , and Mincayani , one of the tribesmen who took part in the attack. Some secular critics believed the story may be seen as presenting an uncritical view of a situation where native peoples were eventually exploited regardless of "good intentions"  such as concerns about SIL International. There was some concern among various Christian groups that lead actor Chad Allen , who portrays aviator missionary Nate Saint in the movie and his son Steve Saint as an adult , is openly gay. Some Christian groups that had initially planned to promote the film began to question whether they should. The real Steve Saint , who was heavily involved in the production of the film, has stated in interviews that he himself had reservations, but that God indicated to him that Allen was the proper choice. In the end, he couldn't see a better actor filling the role of his father.
The story has been told in Christian circles for 50 years. In , five missionaries were brutally murdered in the Ecuadorian jungle by members of the Waodani tribe they went to serve. And then something amazing happened; the killers became Christians. The martyr's names—Nate Saint, Jim Elliot, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, and Roger Youderian—and their sacrifice galvanized a whole generation of missionaries who headed to foreign fields with the slain Elliot's words on their lips, "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. End of the Spear features the events of from the perspectives of the Waodani tribe leader, Mincayani, a quasi-fictional figure played by Louie Lenardo, and Nate Saint's son, Steve, played as a boy by Chase Ellison and as an adult by Chad Allen.
