Jungle Hunt by Luci Brockway Tumas


Friday, February 9, 2024 -

After a frustrating and boring start to his day, twelve-year-old Brock Billings has no idea of the dangerous adventures that await him in a Papua New Guinea jungle…

A brush with a hungry crocodile, a kerosene fire, and getting lost alone in the jungle—at night—are the least of Brock’s worries when he’s captured by rival hunters.

With the help of his friends, Brock and his missionary family work hard not only to bring peace to the opposing groups, but to spread the love of Jesus and translate God’s Word. Will they succeed, or are pride and fear too strong to overcome?

Luci Brockway Tumas has authored three books: Mission Possible (Tyndale House, 1998), The Power of the Word (Wycliffe Bible Translators, 2000), and Jungle Hunt (Anaiah Press, 2023.)

For most of her years with Wycliffe Bible Translators and SIL International, Luci served as a writer in Communications, documenting real-life stories of the impact of Bible translation and literacy. Jungle Hunt is her first novel. Their family called the south Pacific nation of Papua New Guinea their home for 15 years. Luci and her husband, John, now live and work remotely in Longmont, Colorado.

Luci and her husband have served as missionaries with Wycliffe Bible Translators for over 40 years. Most of those years she's been involved in writing real-life stories about the need for Bible translation and literacy - relating the amazing impact on the language groups who finally receive their written alphabet, literacy materials and Scriptures in their language.

Her blog focuses on the unique country of Papua New Guinea: its 800+ languages, unique birds, plants, tropical climate, and other useful homeschooling info.
