When Davey Jank started a new life as a missionary among a remote tribe in the Amazon jungle, he entered a world most of us will never encounter: a world where witchcraft and shamanism are the trade of the powerful; where fear drives a timid and isolated society to acts of desperation and the brink of despair; where God's Word has not been heard. Davey and his wife, Marie-and the others who later join in the mission-struggle to decipher and learn the unwritten language of the tribe. It takes years of comical and tragic misunderstandings, correction, and painstaking effort. Years in which the Wilo people, sometimes patiently and sometimes not so patiently, wait to learn what "God's Talk" says. Our Witchdoctors Are Too Weak is Davey and Marie's honest and inspiring account of their more than ten years among the Wilos. Their modern-day miracle is sure to revitalize the reader's desire to spread God's word to every corner of the world.

"An eye-opener! And funny, too. Davey and Marie's account of the Wilo tribe and their thirst for God's Talk makes tribal missions tangible and fascinating to the average reader. The power of God's Word is the star of the story."
"Loved this book! Felt like I was in the jungle along side the Janks experiencing their life with the Wilos. I was impacted by the work involved to learn an unknown, unwritten language. Laughed out loud a lot. In the end was touched to the core by God's power working in the lives not only of the tribal people but the missionaries as well. Great read for the whole family. Excellent tool for Homeschooling about language, writing, culture, geography. My kids love the short engaging chapters."
