About the Author
Steve Saint grew up on Ecuador in close community with the Waodani. His father, Nate Saint, was one of five missionaries martyred in their attempt to be friend the Waokani. After graduating from Wheaton College, Steve launched several successful businesses. He had also been a missionary in West Africa, Central America and South America. At the request of the Waodani elders, he returned to the Amazon in 1995 along with his family. Steve’s experiences living in the jungles led him to establish I-TEC, a nonprofit organization that assists the “hidden church” in its journey toward independence, self-sustenance and maturity.
Steve Saint was only five years old when his father was brutally killed by Waodani warriors, men from the most savage culture ever known. But in a story almost too amazing to be true, Steve eventually comes to know and even love the very ones who drove the spears into his father’s body.
Decades after the spearing, Steve and his family make the difficult choice to leave behind a comfortable life in the United States and return to the jungle to live among the Waodani people.
