Graham Staines: Modeled The Heart of a Missionary

Just 25 years ago, Australian missionary Graham Staines, his wife, and 3 young children served in India . Staines and his wife had a daughter and two sons. One night, Graham and his two sons were sleeping along the side of a road in India in the family car as they took a long pause in their trip from a distant village. Tragically, Hindu extremists came upon their car, set it on fire, and Staines and his two boys, ages 8 and 10, burned alive as a result. We think the above quote well describes the heart of Graham Staines who gave his all to serve the cause of Christ. Because of this sacrifice, the gospel advanced greatly throughout India and untold numbers of people came to Christ.
