The story is about Richard E. Elkins PhD cultural experiences, who designed an alphabet system for the Western Bukidnon Manobo people in the Philippines. Working in Wycliff, he translated and taught people to read, resulting in Mamobos changing from worshiping spirits to embracing Christian faith. Two translator couples kept in touch since 1957. When their spouses died, they married each other, which is also told in the book. Profound story.

Format: Paperback
The short and interesting chapters kept us turning the pages. Enjoyable by people of all ages. My 9 year old son loved it and finished it in a day. The stories are fun to read and a wonderful testimony to God's sovereignty. It was also interesting to learn about the process of language translation. A great book for the family to read aloud and develop a heart for the world.

A dynamic account of our friends' lives, which is far more than autobiographical. It will inspire and increase the faith of anyone, but especially those of us who knew Dick and Betty. Everyone will profit from this exceptional book.
