A Question of Yams


Gloria Repp has long held a special regard for missionaries who translate the Bible into tribal languages. She was prompted to write Kuri's story after reading the accounts of men and women whose lives were changed as they read God's Word in their own tongue. After his father plants the family yam garden without praying to the ancestor spirits, Kuri, a young boy on Papua New Guinea, wonders if he should follow the advice of the Christian missionaries and trust in their God.
