It was the great mission drama and tragedy of the 20th Century: Five young, visionary missionary adventurers doing the impossible – bringing the Gospel to the most feared headhunters of the western Amazon Rain Forest. They developed new technologies and methods. They made friendly contact with the tribe. They were unified in prayer and purpose. They worshiped powerfully. They had families absolutely committed to the goal.
Yet they were struck down… and millions of Life Magazine readers were horrified at the images and the seemingly senseless tragedy of it all.
Today and tomorrow, Norm visits with a dear friend who lived through it, Marj Saint Van Der Puys.
