In this deeply personal account of her fist year as a missionary, Elisabeth Elliot shares the challenges she faced as she worked in the jungles of Ecuador to bring the Word of God to a people virtually untouched by the outside world. With fascinating detail, she captures the stark realities of life in the jungle, the diffculties she encountered while developing a written language for the tribe, and her confusion when God didn't "cooperate" with her efforts to accomplish what she believed was his will.
More than just a memoir, Made for the Journey is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal reflection on the important questions of life and a remarkable testimony to authentic Christian obedience to an unfathomable God.

Elisabeth always takes the reader on an incredibly an in depth journey into the depths of God and the human soul. In this book, she describes her first missions trip, including her experiences and expectations, coming to the reality that all she had was God, and He never left her.

This book was formerly titled These Strange Ashes, which is a better description of what you will get in this book. No wonder they changed the title. It is narrated by a woman who seems consistently annoyed and has a snarky tone. The book is the story of one disappointment and discouragement after another, chronicling a year in the life of a new missionary. Then it ends.
