Mapuche family

Bringing God´s Good News to the Mapuche

The largest of Chile´s nine indigenous Indian tribes, the Mapuche have endured discrimination and great poverty as they try to cling to their traditional way of life. This family lives in a rural village in the southern part of the country, where a native missionary with Chile Evangelical Mission conducts home Bible studies. Church planting and children´s outreach are important facets of CEM´s work. It is summertime now in Chile, and several Mapuche village churches started by CEM are holding Vacation Bible School programs. After learning Bible stories and songs, the children go door-to-door with their teachers, sharing the gospel with other boys and girls in the community.
