Abstract:

"Orinoco! God at Work in Venezuela follows the growth of the evangelical church in Eastern Venezuela. It tells the story from a macro perspective that points to a dovetailing of world events-a God-sized picture-that led to individual and particular encounters. The book alternates between examining details of pioneer missionary life and using key lookout points to provide a perspective from which to interpret the details of history and God's guiding hand. Orinoco! pulls together multiple examples of North American missionaries and Venezuelans who sought to focus on what was most important, sometimes getting caught up by their own limitations, lack of knowledge, and understanding. Despite internal and external pressures, they persevered and believed in what God was doing in their midst."-- from back cover.
