New Tribes Missionary Has Seen It All

New Tribes Missionary Has Seen It All

The Rev. Dun Gordy, 62, has many tales from his 30 years in the mission field. It has never easy, but always the adventure of a lifetime, according to a report in The Orlando Sentinel.

One tale Gordy shared is of a visit to Paraguay, when he had an encounter with a fierce-looking warlord; the man climbed in through the window instead of using a door. Gordy also commented on how "casual" the tribe was - including their attitude about wearing clothing - "They didn't."

Of particular surprise to Gordy was Papua, New Guinea; a place that has gone from "the Stone Age to the Jet Age in half a generation." Cannibalism can be exercised, but it's also a modern city with an international airport.
