Mighty Warriors: Storyteller & Self-starter

When Jesus came to us (not the Jewish one, the Chayahuita one) he struggled in his early understanding of spanish, but once he started getting the hang of it and began learning Bible stories in his language he became a superstar with storying. He would tell the stories with such enthusiasm and zeal. You couldn’t help but be interested even though you didn’t understand his language. He and some of his other Chayahuita brothers even began teaching stories in traditional song rythms so they would appeal more to his tribesman. Also, after his training was over he went out to begin working with a new people group. he recruited a team and went right to work planting churches, telling stories and training others. When he would call in to tell us what God had been doing we would always rejoice with him for what God was doing through his faithful servant. Lord, Please send us young men like Jesus. Men who devote themselves to learning your word, and are not afraid to get out there and put into practice what they have learned.

update: Jesus continues to work as a missionary in some of the most remote areas in Peru. He travels to these remote villages with his wife and child. Please continue to pray for his ministry.
