Suddenly, revolutionaries appear in front of me. One shoves the barrel of a rifle into my mouth. So this is how I'll die, I think. From the bullet of a guerrilla's gun.
I am surprised at how calm I am. But then, if God has decided that my time for serving Him with the Motilones is over, who am I to question Him? And so I wait for the explosion that will end my life...
But Bruch Olson did not die! He has been shot with bullets and arrows, kidnapped and tortured by guerillas, and survived disease, floods, and tornadoes during four decades as a lone missionary in the jungles of South America.
Yet by relying on God through it all, he has achieved the "impossible"—the Motilone Indians have chosen to walk the path of Jesus Christ and have been given the tools to forge their own vibrant future—and Bruch has discovered lasting peace in his own heart.
Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle, the powerful sequel to Olson's missionary classic Bruchko, is a remarkable tale of adventure, tragedy, faith, and love. It shows how, despite incredible dangers and obstacles, one humble man and a nation of primitive, violent Indians—by joining together in simple obedience—are transformed forever by the sovereign will of God.
