“If not for what you have already done, there would be no Motilones anymore—only a few tattered peasants with neither land nor pride. You are pursuing the wisest possible course in educating people to fight their own battles with Colombian national society, while trying to maintain land and preserve a sense of cultural identity. With the strength and energy you have already shown you have performed miracles.”
— Dr. Stephen Beckerman Department of Anthropology, University of New Mexico
In this book, Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle, the powerful sequel to Bruce Olson’s best-selling missionary classic, Bruchko, we have a remarkable tale of adventure, tragedy, faith, and love. It shows how, despite incredible dangers and obstacles, one humble man and a tribe of primitive, violent Indians — by joining together in simple obedience — have been transformed forever by the sovereign will of god.
Olson’s story details his missionary work and events from the 1970s to the present, both stirring and encouraging the hearts of readers to serve and follow God passionately.
