Valerie Elliot Shepard was 10 months old when a primitive tribe of Ecuadorian Indians made a martyr of her 29-year-old father -- Jim Elliot -- and his four Wheaton College classmates. But that didn't stop Valerie and her mother Elisabeth from moving to live with those same savage Auca Indians to complete the Elliot family's evangelical mission: to eclipse the tribe's savagery with the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
Pilipinto's Happiness relates this amazing story of redemption through the eyes of the Elliots' only child, Valerie, who shares her memories as a young girl growing up in the Amazon jungle with the Quichua and Auca tribes. Read in colorful detail how the Indians, their language, and even the dangerous jungle elements created a delightful playground for Valerie to learn to trust God's hand and respect the simplest of His gifts.
More than just a picture-book, Pilipinto's Happiness is a powerful tool to familiarize young people, college students, and adults alike -- too often starved for Christian heroes and heroines -- with powerful models in the faith who demonstrated reckless abandon for the Kingdom of God.
Über den Autor:
Valerie Elliot Shepard is the only child of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot, missionaries to the Quichua and Auca Indians (now called "Waodani," which means "the people") of the Amazon Jungle. Her father Jim, along with four other men, was speared to death in 1956 as they sought to reach the Aucas with the Gospel. After Jim's death, Elisabeth and Valerie continued to live with the Quichuas until they were invited to live with the tribe that had killed Jim. They ministered to the Aucas for two years as Elisabeth and another missionary, Rachel Saint, learned to speak the language and shared the story of Jesus with them. Many Aucas converted to Christ as a result, abandoning their savage ways.
Valerie returned with her mother to the U.S. in 1963, and has been married to Walter Shepard for 36 years. Walt and Valerie have eight children together, whom they have homeschooled, and lead active lives of Christian ministry. They currently reside in Southport, North Carolina.
