  According to the internet, the World Tribes Missions' headquarters was inHouston,Texas. Their goal was to spread Christianity around the world, and they had 4,000 missionaries working with native people. Twenty-eight Indian tribes inBrazilwere being ministered to by World Tribes missionaries. These missionaries received training in living in the jungle, languages, and medical skills.

  So, Rachel lived in a hut and slept on a bed she'd built herself and cooked over a fire. She ate food she'd grown or trapped and killed, and taught Bible stories to the children and the adults. She knew nothing, and certainly cared nothing, for the worries and pressures of the world.

 "We may never find her,"Durbansaid. "No phones, no electricity. You have to climb through the mountains to get to these people."

 "We have no choice," Josh said. "We called the World Tribes Missions and they won't tell us anything. They wouldn't even confirm that this woman exists. But I have an idea. We have to send someone to find Rachel Lane, right? And we can't just send anyone. It has to be a lawyer, someone who can explain what's happening. And it has to be someone from our company. But it's not going to be a quick trip.Brazil's a big country. We're talking jungles and mountains. These people have never seen a car. It might take at least a week."

  "So who do we send?"Durbanasked.

  "What about Nate?"

根据网上的资料,世界部落传教士的总部设在德克萨斯州的休斯顿。他们的宗旨是向全世界传播基督教,他们有四千名传教士在各地传教。在巴西有二十八个印第安部落被世界部落传教士传过教。这些传教士都接受过野外生存、语言以及医疗技术的训练。

所以,瑞秋是住在一个临时营房里,睡在自己搭的床上,生篝火做饭。她吃的食物都是靠自己种植或打猎来获得,她在教人们圣经故事。对于这世上的烦恼和压力一无所知,当然她也完全不在乎。

“我们找不到她的。”德班说,“那里没有电话,连电也没有。你必须翻山越岭去接触这些人。”

“我们别无选择。”祝什说,“我们给世界部落传教士打过电话了,他们什么都不肯说。他们甚至不能确定这个女人究竟存不存在。但是我有一个想法。我们必须派人去寻找瑞秋·兰茵,对吧?但我们又不能随便派一个人去。这个人必须是个律师,他得有能力解释发生了什么事情。这个人还必须是隶属我们事务所的。况且这不是一个短期旅程,巴西是一个很大的国家,我们得跋山涉水。那些人从没见过汽车,这趟行程至少得花上一个星期。”

“那我们派谁去呢?”

“尼特怎么样?”
