A Modern-Day Gospel Pioneer’s Exploits Among the Most Difficult to Reach Peoples
David Sitton was barely a man when he was converted to faith in Christ and left a life of surfing and partying, exchanging it for his missionary burden for the tribal peoples of Papua New Guinea. Leaving Texas with only a Bible, a suitcase, and a surfboard, he took the gospel to this faraway, perilous land, venturing into cannibalistic areas to people who had never heard the name of Jesus.
For 34 years God has used David to help train missionaries, spread the gospel and establish dozens of churches in remote regions. Through this book, experience the amazing things God did as David recklessly abandoned his will to the will of God.
“All I have read and heard and watched inclines me to rejoice over the vision and theology and mission of David Sitton. I thank God for his Christ-exalting, God-centered, Bible-based courage to focus his life and ministry on the unreached tribal peoples. Like no one else I know, David Sitton puts his body where his mouth is. The risks are high; the reward is overwhelming. I commend To Every Tribe Ministries for your support and involvement. May the Lord of glory spread his fame through all who partner with this ministry to make a name for Jesus among the nations.”
-— Dr. John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN

“In Reckless Abandon, David Sitton recounts a lifetime of experiences among the most difficult to reach peoples.” — Tim Challies, author, blogger, and Canadian pastor
