Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
For anyone who enjoys adventure, this is a book to make one's blood pressure rise. For those who are interested in missions it is must reading. For young people, it is an inspiration to see how God takes people and leads them into paths they did not dream existed when they follow His call to service. ~ Christian Observer
•.. A remarkable, heart-warming and challenging book. ~ The Gospel Magazine

"Few people know missions from the inside out the way Frank and Marie Drown do. Mission to the Headhunters captures their commitment and passion for reaching a lost world with the Gospel. The message of this book is greatly needed by today's generation." ~ Don Hawkins, Pastor, Author, Former Co-Host of Back to the Bible Broadcast, President of Southeastern Bible College, Birmingham, Alabama

"What an incredible story of the Lord building His church... Don't miss reading about this challenge of the century!" ~ Dr Carl McMindes, President, Gospel Missionary Union, Kansas City, Missouri

"Frank and Marie's story is one of God-given vision and undaunted perseverance. It is an incredible story of how God used this mid-west American couple who had simply responded to his call. As a result, an unreached people has been transformed for His glory." ~ Dr Jean Barsness, Missions Consultant and Educator

'This book is straightforward and beautifully written. It's a page-turner. I was staggered and rebuked, helped and cheered by the steadfast faithfulness of this humble (I'm sure they would say merely ordinary) couple. Read it!' ~ Elisabeth Elliot (Author of Through Gates of Splendor)

'We don't often discover a book which is at the same time interesting, instructive and inspiring. They tell a very true and glorious story of God working through them and their co-workers to bless and lift a needy people. All of us may profit from reading this missionary epic.' ~ Dr Abraham C VanPerPuy, Former President of HCJB / World Radio, Quito, Ecuador
