“Then he smiled, and his face looked for a moment”
Bruce Olson, Bruchko: The Astonishing True Story of a 19-Year-Old American, His Capture by the Motilone Indians and His Adventures in Christianizing the Stone Age Tribe

“How do evil, death and deception find power over the Motilone people?' I asked.
"Through the ears,' Bobby answered, because language is so important to the Motilones. It is the essence of life. If evil language comes through the ears, it means death.”
Bruce Olson, Bruchko: The Astonishing True Story of a 19-Year-Old American, His Capture by the Motilone Indians and His Adventures in Christianizing the Stone Age Tribe

“There was so much to do...so many things that Christ had called me to do. It would take more pain, more loneliness. Maybe death.
Why was it so hard? Why?
Then I saw Jesus. He was struggling up a hill with a great burden. His face was lined with grief, His back bent.”
Bruce Olson, Bruchko: The Astonishing True Story of a 19-Year-Old American, His Capture by the Motilone Indians and His Adventures in Christianizing the Stone Age Tribe
