What vivid writing! You show the landscape, and the heart, with equal deftness. Your descriptions are wonderful. I was hoping the shaman would have become saved, but I'm glad you didn't succumb to the "happily ever after" ending. This piece was much stronger as a result.
This story was told so vividly that I was surprised it was fiction. Yet, it truly is the essence of the missionary's heart.
I identify. Wonderful story — it might be fiction, but it is very true at the same time.
I'd like to step back in time and read about the beginnings of this woman's missionary work and what she and her husband accomplished together. Good reading!
I could feel the jungle heat and hear the jungle noises--and the last few paragraphs really gripped at my heart. Excellent writing, as always.
Very sensory. I like stories that involve all my senses. Superb, overall. God bless.
Your writing was so real I would have believed every word was true. Excellent. You are gifted.
Very moving. Yes, I thought it was based on a real account too, until your honest explanatory note at the end. I agree that not every sown field has a "through gates of splendour" harvest, but a harvest nonetheless, if the seed was good seed. Creative use of names - sounded very authentic.
