Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This is the remarkable, historic story of one missionary family deep in the jungles of Borneo and their adventures living among the Dayaks, the indigenous people of Borneo, from 1933 to 1950. From beginning to end, the narrative of this first-hand account sweeps us along as we learn of Arthur and Edna's deep faith, their emotional and respectful connection with the Dayak people, and the family's harrowing escape from Borneo in the midst of World War II. Embracing their new-found faith with great joy, the Dayaks learn to pray, sing, build churches and support their own pastors by tithing a portion of their own meager resources - rice, eggs, vegetables and chickens. This book shows us two people whose humanity and love for others is a joy to behold. You don't have to believe in Christianity or missionary programs to be absorbed in and come to love the character of Arthur and Edna Mouw, as well as the Dayaks, how and why the people change, and the interaction of American, Dutch and Dayak cultures. This historic account is brought up to date when the author recounts her trip back, almost a half century later, to the land and people where she grew up. Everywhere she traveled among the Dayaks, they remembered her family, and she was joyfully received and surrounded by their love. Bookseller Inventory #
