Never the Same


What will be the legacy of your life of faith?

The Sawi were headhunters and cannibals when a young couple named Don and Carol Richardson arrived in their village carrying their seven-month-old boy Steve—and a message that would change the tribe forever. The year was 1962, and Steve—and later, three more children—spent their youth among the Sawi, learning the language and embracing the culture in ways that would shape the rest of their lives. Their story was immortalized in the best-selling book Peace Child and a feature film of the same name, inspiring a new generation to take the gospel to the remaining isolated tribes of the earth.

Fifty years later, Steve joins his father, Don, and two brothers, Shannon and Paul, to visit the Sawi village where they grew up. What is the state of the church they planted among the Sawi? Are the friends they played with still alive? Will anyone remember the mark their family left on the tribe? Journey with Steve as he travels to the swamps of Papua, Indonesia, to introduce you to the Sawi, and explore the impact of the gospel among a previously unreached people group.




Lord God,
Would you send Australian followers of Jesus to make a lasting difference in the lives of precious peoples everywhere.
Would you unsettle us from our comfortable existences and grant us the courage to live for the sake of others in hard places of the world.
May the legacy of our faithfulness be an enduring one.

For your glory’s sake. Send us out, Lord. Send us out.
Amen
