Jungle Jewels & Jaguars Jungle Jewels & Jaguars chronicles the unique experiences of living with a remote group of indigenous people called Amueshas, in the headwaters of the Amazon River--learning their language, reducing it to writing, establishing bilingual schools, and translating God's Word into the language--and the joy of seeing the Word change their lives resulting in the development of 45 churches established by the Amueshas themselves.

This book is used as a practical text in missions classes and includes references to Perspectives on the World Christian Movement by Dr. Ralph D. Winter.
