In this deeply personal account of her fist year as a missionary, Elisabeth Elliot shares the challenges she faced as she worked in the jungles of Ecuador to bring the Word of God to a people virtually untouched by the outside world. With fascinating detail, she captures the stark realities of life in the jungle, the diffculties she encountered while developing a written language for the tribe, and her confusion when God didn't 'cooperate' with her efforts to accomplish what she believed was his will.
More than just a memoir, Made for the Journey is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal reflection on the important questions of life and a remarkable testimony to authentic Christian obedience to an unfathomable God.
Elisabeth Elliot is the author of These Strange Ashes, Through Gates of Splendor, Passion and Purity, and A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael. She lives in Massachusetts.
