Martyrdom for the sake of religion, is it worth it?

I'm not posting this to raise a debate nor divide mylotters on the issue. An incident happened in Turkey where three Christian men were hacked and butchered to death on April 18, 2007. The suspects are from the predominant religious group and one was the son of the mayor. They had professed to be believers and joined the group but during the worship service decapitated the three men. What's the point here? Well, as a result of this martyrdom, thousands are coming to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and many are being converted to Christianity! Their lives for the sake of thousands of lives being saved from damnation of hell to eternal life, I think it's all worth it. The relatives and friends of these martyrs have forgiven the culprits and are moving on with their lives. How could it be possible? It's the love of God, purely by the love of God. God gave His own Son to die on the cross for ours sins and anyone who believes on His Son would have eternal life and will not perish!
