ATTACK!

Just last week, while a group of government officials were in Monte Salvado for meetings, the unreached nomadic peoples came out on the other side of the river asking for bananas. This is the furthest village on the Piedras (rocks) river. We were there a few months ago with a medical campaign, and plan to go back in February, Lord-willing (The beach you can see behind Abigail is almost the exact spot where they appeared).
These unreached peoples speak a dialect very similar to the Yine language. Segundo’s brother in law, Pepe, sent a canoe across the river to the handful of natives on the other side, but instead of pushing it back, they just let it go. It started drifting downstream, gradually gathering speed. When he swam out to get it, around 150 men and youth appeared out of the dense jungle, ambushed him, and began shooting arrows at him. He was able to avoid several arrows, but one finally hit him directly in the head. Another family member was able to help pull the canoe back across the river.
In the mean-time while we were holding clinics with ORH in another part of the jungle, I received a phone call telling us that Pepe had been shot. A few minutes later, we were informed that he had died. I told our medical group, and we began praying. Later that afternoon we got news that he had been resuscitated and was air-flighted back to Puerto Maldonado. God answers prayers!
He is recovering in the hospital, and should be released soon.
This young man has a couple of kids and a lot of potential. He has worked for me,  been to our church services and heard the gospel there, as well as in home Bible studies, but as far as I know he is not yet a believer. His wife, mother-in-law, and a couple of other Yine friends were in services on Sunday. Please pray for his recovery, the salvation of his tribe, and the the salvation of those who have never had a chance to hear the Gospel.
        Malachi 1:11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same
my name shall be great among the Gentiles;
and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering:
for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts.
