Scandalous Saint is the harrowing true story of missionary
pilot John Eils, whose exploits in Mexico in the late 1950s
read more like the script of a Hollywood movie.
In answering the call to spread the gospel throughout
Mexico, John and his wife, Josie, faced trials, danger, and
resistance from the moment they crossed the border. They
were jailed and even falsely accused of both smuggling and
using the church as a house of prostitution.
With faith and courage, they managed to escape one
hair-raising scrape after another. Their story is a powerful
reminder of how God's grace and provision follow those
who serve Him with all their hearts.
