Scripture Testimony Index stories in this book
Bruce is comforted by the untimely singing of a bird during his captivity. Even his captors marveled at the event.
God leads Bruchko to administer medicine to a group of sick children. There was not enough medicine for everyone, so he gave half doses and prayed, trusting God to heal them. This led the tribal chief to see that Bruce had good intentions towards his people.
God leads Bruchko to use some of the spiritual legends of the Motilone people to explain the significance of the coming, dying and resurrection of Christ, and how to walk with him in faith. Not long after, the first Motilone put his faith in Christ.
Bobby, the first Motilone to trust in Jesus, led his entire tribe to saving faith in one day.
The Holy Spirit enabled the Motilone evangelists to speak and understand the language of the Yuko tribe, their former enemies. As a result, the Yuko tribe embraced new life in Jesus.
Bruce Olson tried to tell a Yuko woman about Jesus. Later Jesus appeared to her in a vision with the result that she and nearly her whole village accepted Jesus.
