50th Anniversary – Dale & Masters

Fifty years ago, on the 25th of September in 1968, Phil Masters and Stanley Dale were trekking through the Seng Valley in Irian Jaya, now Papua, Indonesia, attempting to spread the gospel to the Yali. “As their families waited for a scheduled report about their progress, they learned that a band of Yali warriors had misunderstood their attempt to greet them as an act of aggression. In a narrow gorge, a hail of arrows propelled the two men into the presence of the Lord.” Wife, Phyliss Masters, and daughter, Crissie Masters Rask, explained the events that followed in this recent interview.
