In the very remote jungle of central Papua New Guinea live the Hewa tribal people. The life of the Hewa includes murderous raids, payback killings and fearful superstitions rising from terror of jungle spirits. Helpless to defend themselves from continual violence, sickness, and death, they hear about pale faced foreigners who may be able to help them. They send frequent requests asking for help, only to be told there is no one available to live with them. Finally help arrived, but it was not what they had expected. The story is full of twists and turns that will leave you breathless and hungry for more.
Jonathan and Susan Kopf have lived in the rugged mountains of Papua New Guinea since 2000. They spent several years learning the language and culture of the remote Hewa and have now devoted their lives to translating the New Testament into their language, teaching them the message of the Bible, and assisting them in their struggle for survival in a changing world. Though the names of some of the people have been altered, the book is based on actual events that have been witnessed by the author or told to him by the native people.
