Discipleship Among Indigenous Peoples in the Choco

Project Goal: $4,300
$4,300 Needed

Would you help equip the indigenous Embera and Wounaan believers of Colombia and Panama?

Through the Yaviza camp, the Panamanian Mennonite Brethren Conference has been providing leadership development, discipleship, and Bible training for indigenous leaders committed to outreach both within and beyond their communities. In December, a team will be travelling to Jaqué, a township within the Choco jungle region of Panama, near the border of Colombia. Panamanian Wounaan leaders trained at the Yaviza camp will be leading a discipleship event among the Wounaan and Embera believers there, as well as facilitating an artisanal and cultural exchange for the community to expand relations between the Panamanian and Colombian indigenous people groups. As Christianity is not well received in this region, workshops which explores potential for sustainable small business in fair trade artisanal crafts open the door for future Gospel conversations. 

Funds donated to this project will facilitate the sending of a small team of trained, Panamanian Wounaan believers to reach the Colombian Wounaan and Embera people groups with the Good News, discipleship training, and strategic counsel in artisanal small business ventures that will help struggling indigenous families to become self-sustaining.
