My name is Erich Aseltine. My grandmother on my mom's side is the little girl in the middle on pg. 11 of Fruit From the Jungle on pg. 11, her name was Della. Her brother's name above was Uncle Guild. My great-grandfather on my mother's side was M.D. Wood the author of Fruit From the Jungle.
What is really neat about this book are the black & white photographs taken the early 1900's. The portrayal of the cultural life of India at that time period is well done.

Snakes in India 8. Casting Out Devils 9. The Plague 10. Rama the Scavenger 11. Bloody Offerings 12. Obeying the Holy Spirit 13. Was It Worth While? 14. "One Sows, Another Reaps" 15. Beaten for Christ's Sake 16. A Free Camel Ride 17. Work at Kopergaon 18. The Famine 19. Susie and the Sugar Plum 20. Answered Prayer 21. What It Means to Give India the Gospel 22. Healing in the Jungle
The book was published in 1919 when my great-grandfather was 50 years old, and had that had been 25 years after he first went to India.
As a Pentecostal Christian one of my favorite paragraphs is my great-grandfather talking about D.L. Moody and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, it would have been around 1880 while my great-grandfather attended Mr. Moody's school:
My heart was stirred to its depths as I listened to appeals for consecrated men. At six o'clock in the morning, Mr. Moody personally led large meetings for boys and young men who felt their need of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Although I attended these meetings, I did not gain that for which I sought; but later, at the Methodist camp meeting, faith was rewarded, and my heart was filled and satisfied with His sacred presence.
My great-grandfather had an experience in his life after this, and listen to how Christ became glorified in his personal life:
I had promised to keep God's law; and that very fact seemed to put me into such relationship to truth that the Holy Spirit took the things of God, and revealed them to me. Jesus Himself was not merely the Son of God, but God Himself, and the author and creator of all things. In reality, I had a new Bible.
Buy the hardcover for the pictures.
Thank you,
Erich
