About the Book

"We Manobos are blind. But if you show us, we will be able to see. We Manobos are deaf, but if you tell us, we will be able to hear." The chief's words were another Macedonian call if there ever was one. As missionaries to the Philippines, the Barkers lived amidst hostility, violence, hunger, and earthquakes. But as they learned to serve in little ways, God slowly began to heal the land. Poignant, touching, even humorous, those little, almost insignificant touches of the hand of God formed the miracle that is occurring today. The Manobos are beginning to see and hear -- and believe. - Back cover.
