Item description for Rachel Saint: A Star in the Jungle (Christian Heroes: Then & Now) by Janet Benge & Geoff Benge...
Overview Written for readers age 10 and up -- enjoyed by adults! Aboard the Aquitania, Rachel became aware of something strange happening to her. It was as if she were not on the deck of the ship anymore but was instead in a jungle clearing, looking at a group of brown-skinned, half-naked people. The people beckoned for her to come. Suddenly the scene vanished, and Rachel fell to her knees and prayed. When young Rachel Saint surrendered her life to God, she began an unimaginable journey that would span decades and radically transform a dying culture steeped in revenge. Against all odds, God would lead her to Ecuador's Waorani Indians -- known as Aucas, or savages, and infamous for murder. Despite the martyrdom of five missionaries by Waorani spears, Rachel boldly persisted in following God. In one of the greatest testimonies to God's grace and power in our time, this pioneering Bible translator would live for two decades with her own brother's killers, for the joy of seeing them become brothers and sisters in Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rachel Saint: A Star in the Jungle (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)?
Sister of a Martyr Mar 8, 2006
This is the first book I have read about Rachel Saint, and I enjoyed learning about the part she played in bringing the Auca Indians of Ecuador to Christ. Most of what I have previously read was about her brother, Nate, and Jim Elliott and the other men who were killed by the Aucas. Her work in translation and her day to day life with the Aucas was very worthwhile.
