Thank the Lord, for answering our prayer request regarding having a helper here in the city for our study of culture and language, by providing us with Judy, a Koreguaje lady studying nursing in the city. Thanks to her help we can already learn about those multiple prefixes, suffixes, verbs, etc.
The Koreguaje region has remained relatively problem-free in recent years, but now it is getting a little worse. The government is seeking to negotiate to reach a “total peace”, but there are many groups with different interests.
Being in a small indigenous village a month ago, we decided to go with one of the Koreguaje leaders to visit another even smaller town. A town where 6 families live and have a small church. The idea was to go to share a message from the Bible and return. We went at 8 at night, transporting ourselves in a large canoe. The experience of navigating the Orteguaza River at night, contemplating the riverside jungle in the dark, the width of the river, the completely clear sky and all the stars with the Milky Way crossing half of the sky was unforgettable.
When we arrived at the tiny village, the people received us happily and so did the mosquitoes. Hans shared the message in Spanish, although we would prefer to do it in the Koreguaje language, they have a church and they want us to do it. So we asked our friend who brought us to translate. Hans shared from John 21, about the risen Christ at the Lake of Galilee. He asked them what the risen Christ looked like and someone said: “Rekocho”, Hans had already learned that this word means spirit, and without waiting for the help of our translator, he was able to clarify that Christ also rose with a body. In the end people were happy, commenting that they learned something new, and Hans was encouraged because at least he already understood some of the language while he was teaching them.
