Missionaries Risk Exposure to Bow and Arrows – and Poisonous Venoms

April 20, 2008

Missionaries with Segadores (Reapers) in Peru recently learned of a hidden tribe of people who have never been reached by anyone from the outside world, much less Christians bringing the gospel. But in order to reach them, they must travel in areas where they put themselves at risk to venomous snake and spider bites – or where they might be shot at with bow and arrows.

After they are able to make contact, they will employ special strategies for winning their trust. Christian Aid is praying with the native missionaries that all these details for the trip, the equipment, as well as the extra training needs will be provided for by enthusiastic Christians hearing about this venture. Pray that the full armor of God will prevail against the spiritual assaults of the enemy during this mission trip.
