I read this a long time ago. A missionary friend loaned it to me and I'll never forget it. Story of a true disciple of Christ. ( )
  shesinplainview | Nov 27, 2012 |
Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle, the powerful sequel to Bruce Olson's best-selling missionary classic, Bruchko, is a remarkable tale of adventure, tragedy, faith, and love. It shows how, despite incredible dangers and obstacles, one humble man and a tribe of primitive, violent Indians—by joining together in simple obedience—have been transformed forever by the sovereign will of God. This book, which details Olson’s missionary work and events from the 1970s to the present, will stir and encourage the hearts of readers to serve and follow God passionately.

Wow, what a book. I was lent this book by a friend, and now I want to go buy it. Bruchko came to me at a very important time in my life, and it has inspired me to do more than my limits say I can do. Read this book. ( )
