Suspicion, hatred and killing was what marked the Shuar and Atshuar Indians. The first missionaries in the Ecuadorian Rainforest Frank & Marie were committed to bringing about life changes in these tribes by seeking to communicate forgiveness of sin and new life which could be found in Christ. Frank and Marie Drown prepared the way for Jim Elliott, Nate Saint and their colleagues. Frank was the person who discovered their bodies.
... A remarkable, heart-warming and challenging book.
"Few people know missions from the inside out the way Frank and Marie Drown do. Mission to the Headhunters captures their commitment and passion for reaching a lost world with the Gospel. The message of this book is greatly needed by today's generation."
"What an incredible story of the Lord building His church... Don't miss reading about this challenge of the century!"
"Frank and Marie's story is one of God-given vision and undaunted perseverance. It is an incredible story of how God used this mid-west American couple who had simply responded to his call. As a result, an unreached people has been transformed for His glory."
'This book is straightforward and beautifully written. It's a page-turner. I was staggered and rebuked, helped and cheered by the steadfast faithfulness of this humble (I'm sure they would say merely ordinary) couple. Read it!'
'We don't often discover a book which is at the same time interesting, instructive and inspiring. They tell a very true and glorious story of God working through them and their co-workers to bless and lift a needy people. All of us may profit from reading this missionary epic.'
Marcia Washburn5 Stars Out Of 5Great story of God's work in EcuadorDecember 23, 2011Marcia WashburnQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I first read Mission to the Headhunters in 2006 while anticipating a trip to the same area Frank Drown describes in this book. What a delight to find that it is a well-written page-turner, covering decades of God's work among the Shuar, Achuar, and Waodoni (formerly known as as Auca) peoples. People who once pursued vengeance, spearing their enemies, now walk in God's ways. Drown's detailed, and often humorous, descriptions of their work make this a great read. I have purchased and given away several copies through the years and am delighted that it is still in print for a new generation. For those familiar with the 1956 martyrdom of five young American missionaries in the area, this book adds another layer of detail. Drown led the search party for the men. The cover photo was taken at that time. Highly recommended!
