…as dusk descended on the village something shocking happened. Chief Haribo (who had died) sat up and…

In 1927, 13 government officials from the UK were massacred by the Kwaio as they attempted to survey the area for taxation purposes. The British government responded by sending a warship to shell that part of the island, which resulted in the deaths of 200 Kwaio.

Later, several Roman Catholic priests were killed by the group. In 1965 a Protestant missionary from New Zealand was martyred as he attempted to evangelize the Kwaio. Ten years later, a medical missionary and his son were also killed.

But God had a plan to reach the Kwaio using missionaries from Fiji in 1990, as told in the compelling book, Look What God is Doing, by Dick Eastman, president of Every Home for Christ (EHC).

It seems several Fijian evangelists affiliated with EHC who had been part of a campaign to reach Fiji&;s 106 islands turned their attention to the 100 islands of the Solomon chain, 1000 miles away.

They reached the island of Malaita and spent time evangelizing the coastal areas. One night as their team sat around a campfire, a team member pointed to the rugged interior of the island and asked, "Are there people there who have yet to hear about Jesus?"

"Yes," one replied. "It&39;s one of the most difficult areas in all of the islands to evangelize because of the rugged terrain and the hostile people."

An argument ensued within the team as they heard more about the history of the people group. Some were intimidated and urged caution. Cannibalism had been practiced until the end of the last century; who could be sure it had not ceased?

The team finally agreed they would pray and fast for seven days before attempting to send a team to reach the Kwaios.

With the help of two witch doctors who had become Believers, a list of 87 different evil spirits were identified that were said to hold sway in the region. They pointedly confronted each demonic entity with focused warfare prayer over the seven-day period, according to Eastman&39;s book.

On the eighth day, Jack and Japta joined 10 other Christian workers on a day-long journey into the rugged interior of the island.

About five o&39;clock in the afternoon Jack and Japta reached one village where there was a large assembly of people, indicating something unusual might be going on. The two men were quickly surrounded by several large warriors, wanting to know where they were from and why they had come.

"Jack explained as quickly as he could in the Kwaio language that they were bringing the Kwaio people Good News," Eastman noted. "But the burly guardians led them away to be questioned by five village priests or elders. These were elders who had gathered in anticipation of the impending death of their chief.

"The strangers had arrived at a sacred moment and might be infringing on the customs of the Kwaio—a taboo of taboos that could meet with dire consequences."

As the Christians were questioned, they could not help but notice some of the large warriors standing near them had 24-inch machetes and some carried bows with poison-tipped arrows.

"Why are you here?" one of the elders demanded.

"We have come to share Good News," they repeated once more, as they went on to describe the one true God who created everything in the heavens and on earth—including the Kwaio. "Our eternal God sent His only Son to be like us, a man, and to sacrifice His own life willingly on our behalf."

The elders said they had never heard a message like this. They understood the concept of a blood sacrifice, however. After a few moments of heated discussion one said, "We cannot believe anything you say unless our chief believes."

Jack and Japta requested permission to see the chief, knowing it was customary in many villages to seek approval from the chief. Once granted, that would open up opportunities for their message to be heard.

The elders refused because their chief, Haribo, was dying. Seeing him was out of the question.

"When Jesus Christ came as the Son of God, He came not only to deliver men from their sins, but to heal sick people, too. God is quite capable of healing your chief." In response, the elders began to argue among themselves. (Image: Malaita Island, 1906/via God Reports)

Jack and Japta spent the night locked in a hut, but at seven the next morning the elders returned with surprising news. They were granted permission to pray for Chief Haribo!

When they entered the chief&39;s hut, they could see he was very old and weak, struggling for breath, near death.

"Jack shared with him quickly God&39;s plan of salvation, explaining that Jesus was the only way to eternal life," Eastman recounted.

The chief had a most amazing response. "I have waited my entire lifetime to hear this story," he told them. "I have always felt there was some sacred message like this. But no one ever came to bring us such words. How can I receive this Jesus into my life?"

Jack and Japta led Chief Haribo in the sinner&39;s prayer. A few moments later a profound peace transformed the countenance of the chief.

But two hours later the chief died. For the rest of the day, his body was prepared for a traditional Kwaio burial. Meanwhile, Jack and Japta left the village and headed back to the coast.

But as dusk descended on the village something shocking happened. Chief Haribo sat up and began to…
