Bruchko by Bruce Olson

This is our next book – Bruchko – the astonishing true story of a 19 yr old American man who left home to follow God’s prompting to evangelize a tribe of South American Indians who had never connected to civilization.  They were known to kill any who trespassed on their land.  Through capture, disease, loneliness and many trials Bruce wins the friendship of these Indians.  What a story!  It is both amazing and harrowing to read of God’s dealings with him and this tribe.  Even though it happened in the 1960s it is still astounding to think of all the hardships Bruce endured for his Lord.
