Back in 1996 a group of Kuna believers and missionaries traveled to two Kuna villages, asking the chiefs for permission to place Kuna missionaries in their village. They rejected the proposal and remained closed to the Gospel. So we all began praying.
Now, ten years later, because of the faithfulness of the Kuna believers, they have an open invitation to place Kuna missionaries in these same villages.
In the words of Edelfonso, “God has done a big work and those villages have changed, so that now they want to hear God’s true trail. We are asking God to work the same way in other nearby villages that still stand against the Truth.”
Literacy programs were the way that God opened doors. The Kuna believers began building relationships by teaching the people in the two villages to read and write in the Kuna language.
Pray as church leaders meet with the village chiefs to work out the official permission to place Kuna missionaries in the villages.
