On Aug. 10, 2020, my wife Jo and I celebrated a significant anniversary of a major life event in 1990. The location was a Canela village in Brazil. The occasion was the distribution of newly printed Bible portions, which Jo and I helped translate in partnership with the Canela people.
I had a firm conviction that God was in a hurry to save the Canelas and all the rest of the world and that therefore, I should be too.
After my wife Jo and I accepted the Canelas’ invitation 50 years ago to come and live with them in their jungle village in Brazil, we never heard a Canela pray. Why should they? Their Creator had abandoned them.
