One of the most inspiring, faith building books I've read.
on 17 September 1997
I was deeply touched by the simplistic faith of these backwards people from a small island in Indonesia. Even the children, as young as six, took the entire Bible at face value and began to travel through the jungle to nearby villages to tell others about God and His saving power. The miracles that transpired, many people of today would scoff at and say that they are fantasies or the figment of someone's imagination. But as Mel puts it, "I praise God that no matter what the scholars in America might say, we in Indonesia have experienced all the things in Mark 16 by the power of His Holy Spirit." Thank God there are still those who believe the entire Bible.
God sent Mel to America as a missionary and until he landed at L.A. airport, he had no comprehension of why. He felt that Indonesia still needed missionaires from America until he realized the motto on our coins was no longer true. The motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
