In this deeply personal account of her first year as a missionary, Elisabeth Elliot shares what it was like to work in the jungles of Ecuador with a small group of women, bringing the Word of God to the Colorado Indians. With fascinating detail, she captures the stark realities of life among this primitive people and reflects upon the "strange ashes" that can result when an act of obedience is passed through the fires of God's perfect--yet mysterious-- will. These Strange Ashes is more than a remarkable sharing of a year in the life of a Christian missionary; it is a reflection on the great questions of life and a memorable testimony to the realities of authentic Christian commitment. First published over twenty years ago, this updated edition includes the author's candid observations about that first year of ministry and how that experience continues to affect her life today.
