My Life As Crocodile Junk Food

Sunday, November 8, 2015
I was faced with a major decision… what to worry about the most:
A. Being lost in the rain forest.
B. Being chased by angry poachers.
C. Being with these people who are sick and dying.
D. Worrying about Dad worrying and calling up Mom so she’ll worry even more.
E. All of the above.

Genre: Adventure, Comedy
Target Audience: Boys 11-15
Subjects: Missions, Salvation
Summary: Missions. That’s Wally’s father’s latest attempt to help Wally “become a real man”. So offer to the rain forest he goes. His picture of what missions is all about is quite different than what Wally expected. Wally isn’t comfortable sharing his faith with anyone else. So instead of pursuing missions, Wally and the missionary’s son, Jamie, go exploring. It seems that’s not such a good idea either though as the cave is where poachers are hiding. When Wally and Jamie try to escape the poachers they encounter an unknown tribe of jungle natives, a waterfall (which they go over) and a few other dangers before they can make it back home.
Notes: The Wally McDoogle series focuses on a twelve year old boy that is impressively clumsy. He calls himself a “dork-oid”, someone he describes like this: “While everyone else is wearing hot new fashions, we’re sporting frozen-oldie hand-me-downs. While everyone else has these terrific put downs, we usually say something stupid or, worse yet, polite.” Whenever an opportunity for adventure comes up, Wally finds a way to accidentally get himself into trouble. In the process he learns some lesson from the Bible.
In My Life As Crocodile Junk Food, Wally finds what it means to have a passion for the lost and hurting and a desire to share the Gospel with them.

Luke 10:2 – He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
