The surrender of pineapples and possessions was not the end of the story for Otto Koning. Before he knew it came the second and third grade in God's school of surrender. Through the same tribal people of the southern swamplands and their need for a genuine demonstration of servant leadership, God teaches the missionary that not only the things we own, but also our time and reputation are most effectively and efficiently used of the Lord to reach into the lives of others when given to Him. Joy and love flowed from these decisions and multiplied themselves among the first native churches. Otto Koning's testimony is a testimony of the unexpected ways God works when we lay down our life rather than fighting and struggling for the methods we think are best. Brace yourself for a personal challenge and a new approach to ministry.
