    Going Back to the Amazon: From The Shawai's To the Wampis. For the past few years, Dave has joined Wallace Shelton and his Team from KY bringing the gospel to the Amazon tribal people groups. The purpose: These tribes the gospel was hidden from them, until the team brought the gospel of Christ to them. As they traveled from The USA to Peru, flying from Peru to another airplane and a 10 hour trip through the infested muddy waters of the amazon w/cocodrilos and piranas, huge anacondas snakes under water as they travel in a small tin roof boats. Taking the gospel to the tribes has been wonderful and surprising news to us to know that this people are so eager to know the God of the missionaries.

    We had just scratched the surface of 300 tribes. From the Shawais, where the team not only got preached and they got converted but also the team has taught them the word and a church was built. As Dave also is bringing the gospel for 60 minutes every day through radio reading the word to them, only to those that can gather in small place to hear it.
    As the word of God runs swiftly through the Amazon, the Wampis has never heard such good news when they encounter the News God of the Shawais , they heard that Jesus not only is healing them but has blessed their crops , as they sent word to the Shawais telling them, send us the missionaries that came to you we want to hear about this God of yours. We want to know Him.
    So, this week Wallace, Dave and others, are going to bring for the first time the gospel to the Wampis, they will be teaching 4 hours a day the word of God w/Bible studies. We covet your prayers for this new tribe to not only be converted, but to for them to be taught and establish God's kingdom in their lives so they can continue to spread the gospel through out the other tribes through out the Amazon. Revelation 14: 6 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—
