What Others Are Saying About the Book
The 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!
Frank Drown, a man of indomitable spirit and
in icon of modern day missions, writes the intriguing account of
experiences as a pioneer missionary in the jungles of Ecuador.
Frank and Marie's story is one of God-given vision and undaunted
perseverance. It is an incredible story of how God used this
midwest American couple who had simply responded to His call. As a
result, an unreached people has been transformed for His glory.

We don't often discover a book which is at
the same time interesting, instructive and inspiring. This updated
version of Mission to the Headhunters includes all these elements.
I've witnessed Frank and Marie Drown in action for more than forty
years, having served as missionary contemporary in the same country,
Ecuador. 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.
Ä Dr Abraham C
Former President of HCJB/WorldRadio, Quito ,
Fifty-five years ago Frank and Marie Drown
began their mission to the headhunters of eastern Ecuador. They
endured the hardships of jungle living. They overcame the
hostilities of a primitive people. They raised a family to serve
God. What an incredible sorty of the Lord building His
church...Their work continues today! Don't miss reading about this
challenge of the century!
Ä Dr. Carl
President, Avant Ministries, Kansas City,
Few people know missions from the inside out
the way Frank and Marie Drown do. After all, they've lived a great
deal of missionary history, and in the process, had a significant impact
for Christ. 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

As a young child, I saw jungle headhunters
changed into true disciples of Christ before my very eyes. This
wonderful book tells the story. The events recorded here were used
by the same Christ to change my own life -- forever.
