For nearly two decades, newspapers and TV newscasts around the world were filled with disturbing images from the Vietnam War. During those turbulent years from 1958 to 1974, John and Jo Newman served as missionaries in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Despite wartime dangers, natural disasters, and political turmoil, they persevered in their work of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ which the mountain people said was "delicious on their ears." This is the extraordinary story of how the Newmans' love for the mountain people would propel them into a lifetime of dedication to the people of Vietnam-a story of adventure, sacrifice, heartbreak, and courage. Author Marty Robinette currently serves as assistant principal at North Central High School in Spokane, Washington. Previously he was a history teacher and dean of students at Spokane's Lewis and Clark High School. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Jody, since 1975, and they have three grown children. Marty met John Newman in 1973 while attending Beacon Chapel in Spokane, where he later served as youth pastor for three years. He and John became fast friends, and when John "retired," Marty felt compelled to pen his story.
