When Davey Jank starts a new life in the Amazon jungle among the remote Wilo tribe, he enters a world where witchcraft is the trade of the powerful; where fear drives a timid, isolated society to acts of desperation and to despair.
Davey, Marie and the others who join them struggle to decipher and learn the tribe's unwritten tongue. Within a few years the Wilo are reading and writing in their own language. But they want more. They want to know what "God's Talk" says. They hope there is something more to life than the vicious cycle of fearing and appeasing the spirits.

When Davey Jank started a new life as a missionary among a remote tribe in the Amazon jungle, he entered a world most of us will never encounter: a world where witchcraft and shamanism are the trade of the powerful; where fear drives a timid and isolated society to acts of desperation and the brink of despair; where God's Word has not been heard.
Davey and his wife, Marie--and the others who later join in the mission--struggle to decipher and learn the unwritten language of the tribe. It takes years of comical and tragic misunderstandings, correction, and painstaking effort. Years in which the Wilo people, sometimes patiently and sometimes not so patiently, wait to learn what God's Talk says.
Our Witchdoctors Are Too Weak is Davey and Marie's honest and inspiring account of their more than ten years among the Wilos. Their modern-day miracle is sure to revitalize the reader's desire to spread God's Word to every corner of the world.
