What an incredible honor we had today to be in the Amazon Rain Forest with the Houaroni tribe. This tribe killed the first missionaries who visited them 50 years ago. Today, the majority of them are Christians.
We flew to the Houaroni village in a Cessna. The pilot made a perfect landing on a dirt runway. Members of the tribe met us and warmly welcomed us. The pilot gave them bags of rice and other supplies.
They took us to their church and about six tribal elders welcomed us. They didn't know we were coming today, but two of them said they had dreams the night before that people were coming today.
They sang and talked in their native langauge. One of the elder's sons translated it into Spanish, and then our pilot translated it into English.
One of the elders was a member of the tribe that killed the missionaries 50 years ago. Thanks to the family of the missionaries who kept reaching out to the tribe for Jesus, he is a born again Christian.
The elders prayed for us, then I was honored to pray for them. It was an incredible experience, and one that none of us will ever forget.
It is so cool to meet people like the Houaronis and listen to them worship God.
Every tongue, every tribe and every nation will sing God's praises and worship Him.
