December News Letter
God’s moving in the Amazon Jungle of Peru and He’s using JungleMaster to forward His purpose. As I recently spent a few hours walking beside a young Pastor named Andy in the village of Roca Fuerte, this truth was cemented in my mind.
When we arrived in Roca Fuerte the greeting was similar to other villages; crowds on the bank, kids and adults rushing to greet us and carry our bags. Yet we immediately felt something different here—a heaviness that oppressed us. We had come to serve and encourage Pastor Andy, but we had no idea how much it would demand of us.
Pastor Andy’s request seemed simple—join him in praying for his parishioners. Three-year-old Rosa who was ill and out of medication. Walter, a young worship leader tormented by deep despair that confined him to his bed. Lamar, a man who had spent 10 months lying on a wooden floor suffering from a heart condition and ulcers. Magalina, Chandler, and countless more.
As I stood with Pastor Andy, lifting the needs of his people up to God, I was overwhelmed by the difficulty of bearing the burden of these people, something Andy and the pastors of this region do daily.
Our calling is to stand beside pastors like Andy and lift their arms as they fight on the front lines of the battle being waged for the souls of this region. These pastors feel a strong calling and deep burden to bring the hope of the Gospel to every person in the Amazon, and they are the right ones to do it. As they seek to meet physical and spiritual needs of their people, our role is to empower, encourage and equip them.
You have heard it said the local church is the hope of the world. I know this is true in the jungle and I’m convinced that pastors like Andy are the catalysts for change. Standing beside them is our privilege and together, with your help, it’s the best way to reach the peoples of the jungle for Christ!
Your partnership in prayer and financial support will help forward this mission of taking the Gospel to the least reached and the un-contacted people living deep in the jungles of the Amazon.
Here are a few ways your year-end gift will impact lives in the jungle. $5,000 builds a church in Bolivar. $100 will help us empower and equip two pastors at our upcoming 5th annual Amazon Missions Festival, $200 provides food and fuel for national missionaries reaching far up distant tributaries to serve the forgotten. $600 helps bring a guest teacher from South America to the jungle mission festival.
Don’t miss this opportunity to join in the work God is doing in this region of the world to bring the Hope of Jesus to those lost and desperate for His touch.
Thank you so much for your partnership in Christ
