The challenge we have for the year 2020 is to bring the knowledge of the true God to the descendants of one of the first peoples who inhabited South America. The Krahô Indians still have faith in the things created by our God like the sun and moon. Today the Krahô Indians are a civilized people, but lacking humanitarian aid. They want to study, they want to acquire professions, they need medicine, transportation, communication with the city and especially, they need to know GOD'S LOVE.
Of the 38 tribes in the far north of Tocantins (Palmas), one is already completely accessible to the gospel, but our challenge lies in the other 37 extremely needy communities in everything!Mission Dates: September 7 – 17, 2020
