For months in 1963, Richardson shares the gospels with the Sawi villages, but all the Sawi resist complete surrender to the new religion. Richardson wonders what piece he is missing to fully communicate his message of peace. Richardson tells a man in the village that, should the Tuans leave, the Sawi would resume their headhunting. The man agrees.

However, in June of 1963, the Richardsons return to the highlands of Karubaga for the end of Carol Richardson's second pregnancy. They travel back with another Canadian, Winifred Frost. During their trip by dugout canoe, the group capsizes in crocodile-infested waters with only their Sawi houseboy, Mavo, for help. Frantically, Richardson searches the muddy waters of the Kronkel for his two young sons. After recovering them, Richardson prays for help. Sawi dugouts come upon them quickly and help them get ashore.
