Indigenous Missions at Work in South America

March 14, 2012

South American missionaries and believers pour their hearts out from the Andes Mountains to the Amazon jungles and from the Amazon tributaries of to the shanty towns across the continent. Poverty does not stop these grateful Christians from reaching out to those around them. In some countries the gospel has made great progress, while in other places there are hindrances such as socialism, superstition, and local deities bearing the names of Roman Catholic saints. Still, the gospel, seasoned by persecution, has forged a strong, indigenous evangelical movement that is spreading, especially among tribal groups.

Gifts sent to Christian Aid provide support for South American missionaries who go to unreached villages where they plant new churches. Then after churches have been planted other workers go to teach and disciple new believers, young and old.

With the help of Christian Aid the gospel is growing. The hard work and energy of native missionaries have enabled them to bring the Word of God to tribes and villages where the truth of the gospel has not been heard. Most are poor and do not have the resources to carry on their work without some assistance.
