What an amazing and packed full year we have had, it has been such a blessing!

From over 3,000 kids in VBS throughout the summer to 150 Pastors and leaders Christmas retreat with their families last week, it only begins to scratch the surface of what God has done in our neck of the woods this year. From every church planted, to every child reached with the gospel, to every water well installed and each girl rescued, it just wouldn't be possible to end this year without giving glory to the one who makes it all possible, Jesus Christ!

We are so thankful for the opportunity to serve and be part of something amazing! We also thank YOU! Without your prayers and support, we just couldn't do it.

Because of faithful supporters like you, we were able to host a Christmas Retreat for Pastors and leaders from over 60 villages along with their families, totaling over 150 people and distribute 4,000 christmas gifts for kids throughout the jungle.

What a great time of fellowship, prayer and celebration! We want to wish you a most blessed Christmas season.

Did you know that there are over 500 Shuar villages yet to be reached? Each week we have church planting teams made up of pastors and leaders who visit different parts of the jungle to evangelize and teach. Pray with us that in 2019 we are able to send more workers, visit more villages, plant more churches and that many will come to know Christ!
