Patricio went into a prison in Ecuador for aggravated assault and came out wanting to plant a church among the unreached in a remote northern jungle. Evangelists with a native prison ministry led Patricio to Christ, breaking through the spikey shell shielding his tender core and seeing him change from hardened hot-head to determined missionary. He spent months in Bible study, and he knew sweet fellowship in an otherwise hostile environment. But that was just his first transformation.
Founded in 1953, Christian Aid Mission seeks to establish a witness for Christ in every nation by assisting indigenous ministries based in areas of poverty and persecution, giving priority to ministries sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with unreached people groups. Today, we work with hundreds of indigenous ministries in eight regions of the world that share the gospel with more than 1,700 unreached people groups.
