Kurt Bruner, Al Janssen, and Bob Smithouser in the studio

Kurt Bruner and Al Janssen both worked with Adventures in Odyssey in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Now, they work with Open Doors, this month’s featured ministry in the Odyssey Adventure Club. Kurt and Al told us about working at Whit’s End, whether “Sunset Bowlawater” fits in Adventures in Odyssey, and a soon-to-be-fan-favorite bailiff character. Plus, they tell us what Open Doors is doing around the world and how the Club episode “When One Door Closes” fits into that mission.

Imagination Station 17: In Fear of the Spear

In January 1956, five American missionaries travelled to a remote part of South America to contact an isolated tribe then known as the Aucas. The story of their deaths and what happened between the families of the fallen men and the tribe who killed them is told in a new Imagination Station book: “In Fear of the Spear.” Steve Saint (son of one of the missionaries) and Marianne Hering (author of the new book) tell how they told this incredible story through Adventures in Odyssey.
