Oral Roberts University introduced its "Wall of Sacrifice" Wednesday. It's a monument honoring those who lost their lives while sharing the gospel of Christ.

It's behind the Praying Hands on the ORU campus in south Tulsa, and holds the names of alumni, students, trustees, faculty, and staff from 1965 to the present, who died while working as missionaries around the world.

The first names inscribed on the wall honor the five men and one woman who passed away this year.

Those inscribed include: Austin Grey Anderson, Alexis Nicole Brownlee, Garrett Vincent Coble, Jaman Alan Iseminger, Stephen John Luth, and Luke Freid Sheets.

The sacrifice of those six people was also celebrated Wednesday morning during a special memorial service.
