Elinor Young Missisonary

Irian Jaya, Papua, Indonesia, at Korupun among the Kimyal tribe -- my years there as a profoundly affected polio survivor -- are much of what is on this website. But not exclusively, and I have much to say that branches beyond that. 

A bigger story will be in my up-coming book, a work in progress. I'll let you know when it is published. My proposed title is Running On Broken Legs. This book will have some of what is in.....

                                                 --  My "Stories and Stuff" which combine the two themes of polio and missionary experiences in Papua, Indonesia. 

 --  A 23-minute video called Bad Legs. See it on YouTube here, or in HD free here  At that site you may also order a DVD which includes "Bad Legs" and "Kimyals Receive the New Testament" videos in various languages. It's just $1.99, free shipping.

There are other short videos involving me or the Kimyal people on the YouTube channel of my mission agency, World Team. 

- See "Elinor's Story," "The (Kimyal) Gospel History," and  "Dedication of the Kimyal New Testament."


The GC Kids (Great Commission Kids) mini-magazine is part of what I do these days. GC Kids aims to encourage children to be involved in missions throughout their lives.

I'm retired, but I'm as active as my post-polio syndrome limited energy will allow. I love 

        mentoring future missionaries, 

              editing Great Commission Kids, 

                   speaking about missions, trying to help God's people catch the passion of God's heart for the world, 

                        and working on Running Without Legs

My latest newsletter about those and other activities is here.
