Gus was from old Iliamna Village. He speaks of how life was back in the old days. They lived off the land without the conveniences of modern day Alaska. It was tough, and some didn’t make it. Gus recalls a missionary by the name of Don Stump who had a significant influence on him and Gus had a high regard for this man. Don encouraged Gus to accept the Lord Jesus because it was the only way one could get to heaven. But, Gus didn’t believe him.
