In-ká-hai: How Sweet It Is! is the true-life story of Pete and Leah Humphreys who spent 17 years working in the arid Chaco region of Paraguay. They were Bible teachers to the Manjúi. These tribal people had no knowledge of the Bible and were steeped in their traditional beliefs.
Despite being very careful to teach the Bible clearly, the Humphreys encountered problems. The Manjúi put on a veneer of Christianity but underneath, they clung to their animistic beliefs. They were mixing two belief systems together. What could Pete and Leah do? The Manjúis’ eventual trust in Jesus is an exciting story of front line ministry in action.
Learn what the Humphreys did to overcome the challenges and, more importantly, see how it is applicable to ordinary believers anywhere in the world today.
Includes a six-session study guide based on lessons drawn from the story:

I bought this book because I'm always interested in ways to make the gospel clearer and what better resource than missionaries who are starting from scratch! I do have to say that I appreciate the Humphreys honesty and humility in knowing that a large chunk of their lives had to be given to the language and cultural understanding before they could give the gospel and have it understood clearly by the people. Most, I fear, get impatient and rush it so the tribes merely add it to the other beliefs they have. Thank you for recording your struggles and willingness to hang in there and not press for results. I am eternally grateful for the Goodseed ministry and the efforts that are made to break down barriers and present the gospel without all the clouded language and buzz words so many insert without giving a thought to whether an unbeliever understands them (or even needs to hear them to be saved). The world needs this ministry and their resources. I have personally given many of their books out and used them as references for teaching children all of the time. I thank God for you and pray for Goodseed. Teri

I took a few days to slowly read through each chapter of In-Ka-Hai. I love to read the accounts of missionaries with their struggles and joys. With this small booklet, I found myself being placed in the middle of the scenes, weeping in scenes of death and demonic deception, laughing at others and rejoicing with Pete and the others as the scales of blindness fell from the eyes of some precious souls. A short but convincing booklet on the necessity and urgency of clearly, even slowly presenting Christ with a firm foundation from His word. I look at the American culture today and see how contemporary evangelism is missing the mark. I am thankful for ministries such as GoodSeed, New Tribes and others.
