The young tribal church in the Philippines faces stiff challenges. Mormon missionaries are making inroads. So are strong local cults. Fear of spirits is a daily reality; exploitation by the luktanon, the lowland Filipinos, is common; backsliding a constant problem. Alarm grows as the church elders feel unequal to the task of scriptural correction. They pray for a couple who can teach and guide. Simultaneously, God is preparing Martin Haworth and his wife Alexandra to meet this challenge. Martin's account describes how he and Alexandra, with their two young children, settle among the tribespeople and share the spiritual challenges they face. Can the rot be arrested?
