Have You Read...

Bruchko by Bruce Olson? Today, I found myself in bed with flu-like symptoms. Thanks to elderberry syrup, I believe my symptoms have calmed down significantly. Since I felt pretty good, I decided to finish the above-mentioned book.

Wow. Bruce Olson is a missionary with an amazing story of bringing Christ to a violent, indigenous tribe in South America. The thing that really stood out to me was his concerted effort to become part of the tribe, rather than 'Westernize' the natives and turn them into American-type Christians. His story is just moving and beautiful and shows the obvious love of God for these people, right where they are.

My friend, Pam, gave me this book along with many others that she and her kids used in their homeschool. Come to find out, Bruchko is part of the Sonlight curriculum! How exciting that home educated kiddos around the world are reading this! I think it is a must-read on our read-aloud schedule.

I remember that read-aloud from when my mom read it to be as part of Sonlight [smile]. Good stuff.

Glad you're feeling better!
