Traveling to South America, Steve Saint leads a group out of their comfort zone and into the jungles of the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. The group includes many who are related to one of the most famous missionary stories of our time—the five men who were killed in Ecuador in 1956 by the tribe then known as the Aucas. The Saint, McCully, and Fleming Liefeld families visit the tribe that once was considered the most violent on earth.
Now known as the Waodani, the tribe’s spiritual leaders are the very men who killed the missionaries. Living with the Waodani Indians, the group shares the Wao way of life, their faith and explores with them what missions is all about. Along with the journey and daily jungle living, the travelers and the Waodani share their memories, their experiences and how they live out their Christian faith.
