First Line Friday: Mission to the Headhunters

Happy Friday, friends!

Wow, this week went by quickly! It’s already time for another First Line Friday. 🙂
The book I’m featuring today is:

Mission to the Headhunters: How God’s Forgiveness Transformed Tribal Enemies by Frank and Marie Drown

And the first line is:

As the plane droned over the jungle of the Oriente in eastern Ecuador, taking me back to join Marie in the coastal city of Guayaquil, my mind was a tumbling kaleidoscope of vivid new impressions.

This book comes highly recommended from friends and also from Elisabeth Elliot, so I am really looking forward to burrowing into it. 🙂

Now, it’s your turn, friends! What’s the first line of your current book – or the one nearest to you? Or let me know a missionary-themed book that you’ve read and enjoyed.  🙂
Then head on over to find out what first-lines these other First-Line-Friday folks are sharing today:

    Next on my to-read pile is Unblemished by Sara Ella, which is a bit different to what I usually read. But it’s got a great first line:

    This is all my fault.
    She’ll lose her soul because of me.

    Wow. I bet that will be a powerful read!

    I’m featuring Nicole Deese’s new book, “A New Shade of Summer” on my blog this week, but I’ve FINALLY managed to get around to reading Susan May Warren’s “A Matter of Trust”, and I almost didn’t even want to put it down to do the First Line Friday rounds! But I’ve forced myself to share the first line:

    “Gage Watson blamed the trouble on the bright, sunny day.”

    This sounds like a really great true-life story! Thank you for sharing it.
    On my blog this week I’m sharing the first line from a book I just finished. The Case of the Clobbered Cad. It was a fun story to read.
    I’ll share here the first line from a book my son is currently reading.
    Tree Tall and the Whiteskins by Shirlee Evans
    “Tree Tall crept through the high dew-damp grass along the creek bank. It was early. The sun was not yet over the hill.”

    Sounds like an incredible story!

    Come to a turable mountain that tried us almost to death to git over it.

    My first line on my blog is from Colleen Coble. But I grabbed a book beside me for here.
    “He’d found her.” by The Texan’s Courtship Lessons by Noelle Marchand. My mom gave this book to me and I haven’t read it yet.

    Happy Friday!!

    My first line is from For Such a Moment by Marie Wells Coutu:

    “Ellen Nielson scanned the large office, seeking a secret corner where she could escape.”
