The Lord guided us to this place and here we have started the work He has given us. When we arrived on the property, we realized that is wasn't just virgin jungle land with a wide variety of wild plants and animals like we originally thought. There were also several indigenous families living in the middle of nowhere. They are very timid and normally hide from outsiders. When they are seen, they typically disappear as quickly as they appeared.
After praying and asking God for direction as to whether we should ask them to leave the property or not, we decided to visit them and try to “get to know them”. Little by little, a relationship was built and we began to share the love of Jesus with them. Sometimes they come to visit us and tell us that they were just out “taking a stroll”. Since they do not speak Spanish, communication is limited. But the Lord has provided us with a solar audio bible in their native language! Whenever we can, we play different parts of the Bible for them and they also hover over the player, attentive to every word. God is so Good! We also let them color Bible coloring pages that correlate to the story they are hearing. Both the kids and the adults enjoy this activity.
In my limited knowledge of natural remedies, I try to do what I can to help them when they need basic medical attention. Other times, we take them to the local clinic in town so that they can receive the attention they need.
God has great plans for each of them, as well as for each of us. May the Lord help us to finish His work!
