Traveling to South America, Steve Saint leads a group out of their comfort zone and into the jungles of the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. The group includes many who are related to one of the most famous missionary stories of our time—the five men who were killed in Ecuador in 1956 by the tribe then known as the Aucas. The Saint, McCully, and Fleming Liefeld families visit the tribe that once was considered the most violent on earth.
Now known as the Waodani, the tribe’s spiritual leaders are the very men who killed the missionaries. Living with the Waodani Indians, the group shares the Wao way of life, their faith and explores with them what missions is all about. Along with the journey and daily jungle living, the travelers and the Waodani share their memories, their experiences and how they live out their Christian faith.

Journey into the Amazon also features Steve Saint. In this video, which clocks in at one hour, shows Saint leading a group of Americans into the jungles of Ecuador to spend several days among the Waodani. Many of the people in the group are related to the five missionaries who were killed near the village some fifty years earlier. As the Americans live among the Waodani, they learn the Wao way of life, living in a stone age society so far removed from any of the conveniences of modern life. They also see the remarkable transformation among the people and hear of the faith that was brought to them through such sacrifice. This is an interesting video that aptly portrays the night-and-day difference between modern North America and stone age South America. Yet we see that even in these far-off corners of the world is a family, knit together by a common Savior. http://www.challies.com/music-movies/dvd-reviews
