The bible shielded his chest from the arrow.
"I'm scared", Chau wrote. "His high-pitched voice still lingers in my head". The Sentinelese are known to violently resist any contact with outsiders, and even fire arrows at aircrafts flying at lower altitude. His notes, which were reported Thursday in Indian newspapers and confirmed by police, make clear he knew he might be killed.
Please do not be angry at them or at god if I get killed-rather please live you lives in obedience to whether He has called you too and I'll see you again when you pass through the veil. "Would it be wiser to leave and let someone else to continue. I don't think so", he penned.
Indian authorities have been trying to figure out a way to recover Chau's body after he was killed last week by islanders who apparently shot him with arrows and then buried his body on the beach.
In the diary, reportedly written hours before his death, Chau depicted his boat trip to North Sentinel Island as a night scene of bioluminescent plankton under a canopy of stars, with fish jumping in and out of the water like "darting mermaids".
Visits to the island are heavily restricted, which Chau knew, authorities said.
"While some reports suggest that John Chau was merely an adventurer, his goal in visiting North Sentinel was not for sightseeing". The only contacts, occasional "gift-giving" visits in which bananas and coconuts were passed by small teams of officials and scholars who remained in the surf, were years ago.
Chau, however, was adamant in reaching the island to "declare Jesus" to the Sentinelese tribe.
The island is a protected area, and people are not allowed to go within 5 nautical miles of it, after previous incidents of aggressive behavior toward outsiders were observed.
Numerous island chain's other tribes have been decimated over the past century, lost to disease, intermarriage and migration. In its first census on the island, taken in 1991, it estimated 117 people were living there.

"The fishermen saw the tribals tying a rope around his neck and dragging his body, said the source, adding that they were scared and fled but returned next morning to find his body on the seashore."
Mr Pathak said the police will also take a new look at Mr Chau's personal journal, in which he expressed fears that he might be killed.
On his Instagram account, his family said he was "a beloved son, brother, uncle, and best friend to us".
A few days after he was killed, Chau's family put out a message, forgiving the Sentinelese people for killing him.
Hampered by restrictions on going to North Sentinel and the hostility of the Sentinelese people, authorities are counting on the expertise of anthropologists and tribal welfare specialists to access the remains of 26-year-old John Allen Chau.
In the wake of Chau's death, police arrested a friend believed to have helped him in his journey along with several fishermen suspected of bringing him near the island.
Authorities arrested seven fishermen who allegedly smuggled Chau into the island because of the government's strict rules, but Chau's family urged police to release the fishermen because they say their son made a decision to go to the island "on his own free will".
Chau, a graduate of Oral Roberts University, a Christian college in Oklahoma, has been described as a Christian missionary.
