What happens when a nineteen-year-old heads into a South American jungle to evangelize a murderous tribe? For Bruce Olson it meant capture, disease, terror, loneliness, and torture. But what he discovered by trial and error has revolutionized missions. Living with the Motilone Indians since 1961, Olson has won the friendship of four Colombian presidents and has appeared before the United Nations. His story will amaze you and remind you that simple faith in Christ can make anything possible.
