Bruce Olson started his mission work when he was 19. He began in South America, teaching the Motile Indians. Nothing really drove young Bruce to begin mission work except that he thought that was his plan written by God. He left behind many Indians speaking English and the native language, so that they could teach the Gospel too.
Bruce Olson is not married and has no kids. He currently lives in the jungle. He hasn't won any awards.
Bruce had many quotes one being, "Then he smiled, and his face looked for a moment." Acts 1:8 is a great Bible verse about him.
