Yora, Manu Park Panoan in Peru

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

The Yora live in the jungles of Peru and have had very limited contact with the outside world. They prefer to live in isolation, and sometimes go deep into the jungle to avoid outsiders such as loggers. They are quite vulnerable to diseases which may be brought by outsiders.

Ministry Obstacles
Access to this tribe is obviously quite limited and difficult.

Outreach Ideas
Trust must be established with these people. Scripture portions are available in their language, and workers who have won the trust of the people and can read the language may be able to minister the scriptures to them.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may be a few in the tribe who know of Christ. Pray for an accurate understanding of who he is and what he has done. Pray against mixing traditional religions with the purity of the Gospel.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for protection against diseases, and against outsiders brutalizing the people. Pray that outsiders will treat the Yora people kindly.

Scripture Focus
The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.
