It’s a fascinating read, if vruchko bit gruesome at times the parasites, ughand heartbreaking at others. Unlike almost any other missionary story I have read. Refresh and try again.
Retrieved from ” https: One of the best-told and most inspiring missionary stories out there. The more he trusted those buchko the more amazing his journey became and the more effective he was as a person and as a truth teller sent by Christ. Best of the “missionary story” genre, in my opinion.
While working for the government in the Ministry of Health and studying at the university, he felt the Motilone Indians were who God wanted him to minister bruchok. It’s amazing to me how Bruce was “alone” from the beginning.

Though he didn’t have any training, he already taught himself Greek, Hebrew, and Latin so he could understand old Biblical texts on a higher level and set off at the age of 19 to Venezuela, SA where he learned Spanish.
Its very interesting to see someone that young drop everything and fly to South America to live with the Motilone Bruvhko. This has to be the best missionary story I’ve ever read!
The greatest lesson Bruce learned was that he didn’t need Jesus to intervene and change all the trouble he was often up against.
