The End of The Spear

Several years ago we read the story of Nate Saint in school. Every day we begged mama to read another chapter of his exciting and moving adventures in the Amazon jungles. When we reached the end of the book and read of his death we all cried. Yes, through reading the book we felt like we knew him!

Last night we watched The End of The Spear for the second time. After seeing these people risk their lives to reach a savage tribe, and dying by their spears because they refused to fight back it made my life seem so small and insignificant. It made me question if I was doing anything that would matter for God.

The End of The Spear is an excelent movie! There were some violent parts that made mama and I turned our heads away, but those grafic scenes make you realize what kind of place they were living in. At first I didn't quite like a few of the actors, but when you look at the actual people they were trying to act like you'll see that they did very well with this movie. It is moving, inspiring, interesting, and true. Now that is a movie worth watching!

I have heard of it, but never watched it. It sounds interesting.

I just watched End of the Spear Saturday night for the second time. I think the phrase that really struck a chord with me was when Nate Saint was talking to his son and he said that the Waodani weren't ready for Heaven yet. Powerful, powerful, movie.

Hi Jennifer!
We have listened to the Audio Book (on CD) of The End of The Spear. It is one of our favorites!
