Making an impact among remote tribal groups in the Amazon

January 30, 2012

Deep in the brush of the Amazon, a dynamic Bible institute trains and sends native missionaries to preach the gospel among a half dozen previously unengaged tribes. A church planting ministry booms; a school ministry reaches more than 2,000 tribal children; the Bible is translated into the Kaiwa language; and a mission hospital provides medical care, lab work and dental care while helping children and pregnant moms overcome malnutrition.

Serving tribal groups in South-Western Brazil, Caiua Evangelical Mission works to transform the lives of those struggling to survive in the most remote areas of the Amazon. Helped by Christian Aid, CEM has stood the test of time and for 80 years has taken the gospel to places only locals are permitted. Yet in those hidden regions about 70 percent of the people have never heard the gospel.

“We are happy that Christian Aid is part of the missionary project that we believe is in the heart of God,” one missionary wrote in a report. “In obedience to our Lord Jesus, we are sharing the gospel in the Mato Grosso do sul region, and we opened a mission field at Taqwapery village. Looking back, we can see that the trials and spiritual battles were big. But the accomplishments and conquests were greater. It is joyful to see people accepting Jesus as personal Savior, others coming back to the Lord, and young people deciding to become missionaries among their tribes.”

These economically responsible, Biblically sound indigenous missionaries focus on reaching the unreached groups of Brazil. They count all lost compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Jesus and making Him known.

Help this ministry by sending a gift of $25 per month so a student may attend the Bible institute. Sponsor a missionary for $50 per month and send one gospel worker to the field to evangelize new regions or plant a church. Consider supporting the medical outreach; gifts of any amount are continually needed.
