Taking Jesus to the unreached peoples of the Amazon

Joshua Project has identified 62 unreached people groups in seven countries of the Amazon region in South America. Forty-five of those groups are still unengaged with no Gospel witness among them. I have been invited to meet with Christian leaders from Brazil and Peru who are targeting these groups to discuss using Community Health Evangelism as a strategy for reaching these peoples. I will be accompanied by CHE Coordinators from Peru, Brazil, and Central America who will present case studies and provide follow up training to nationals from the region who will engage these peoples.

You are going where?

I have to admit that I had never heard of Guayaquil, Ecuador, until the Transform World Global Leadership Summit was scheduled to assemble in that city. I serve as Co-Catalyst for Transform World’s Poverty Alleviation Challenge. We are bringing together evangelical leaders from around the world to collaborate and plan for the establishment of¬†Gospel movements in a million unreached villages using the CHE Strategy.

My mom is jealous!

My mother loves to go back East in the fall when the leaves are changing colors. I’m headed to Virginia next week to do a “TED talk” on CHE for the Coalition on the Support of Indigenous Ministries (COSIM). This will be an opportunity to offer CHE as a strategy to Western organizations partnering with indigenous ministries around the world to advance the work of the Kingdom.

With gratitude in my heart

I love Jeannie! Please pray for Jeannie as she holds down the fort here at home while I travel abroad. She definitely has the tougher job, and this time of year I am away more than I am home.

I am thankful for each of you, and pray God’s blessing in every area of your lives. Without you, none of would be possible.
