a wonderful book about missionary life in the jungle. I work in makuma now and the ease with which I can communicate the gospel and work with the Shuar people is thanks to the hard work of Frank and Marie Drown. Their achievements include bringing electricity to a remote part of the Ecuadorian jungle, a feat for which I am extremely grateful! An easy read that inspires and clearly shows God's hand at work.

Captivating, Real, and Challenging

As a student at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago in the mid 80's, Frank Drown stayed in my dorm room for several nights during the annual Missions Conference. I was a missionary in training, had just read an earlier out-of-print copy of this book, and even did a book review and report on the book for a missions course I was taking that semester. Next thing I knew, he was coming to campus and a request went out for students to house visiting missionaries. When I saw his name on the list, I jumped on it right away. Stories from Frank's life, that I had already read about, were now being told to me in person by Frank himself in the late night hours of dorm life. It was a deeply and permanently impacting week in my life. Frank and Marie were serving among the Jivaro/Shuar people in the jungles of Ecuador, not far from where the Aucas famously killed Nate Saint, a missionary pilot, and 4 other missionaries (including Jim Elliot) that became well known to the world after the incident. Frank Drown was among the first responders, leading a search team of missionaries, journalists, and military through the jungle. You do not have to have Frank stay in your dorm room to be impacted by the journey of his life. The book is written in a way that allows you to feel the jungle, get a sense of life in a challenging environment, experience the thrill of seeing remote tribal peoples come to know the Savior, and envision the passion that Frank and Marie had for ministry. I am thrilled to see that this book, which I had only read years ago using the Moody Bible Institute library copy, is now back in print. I plan to purchase and read it again.

A new favorite

This book is one of the best I've read. Frank and his wife have done an excellent job of telling the story of how God used them in the jungles of Ecuador. I was challenged and encouraged in my faith. I couldn't put the book down.
