Raul Castillo

Establishing an authentically indigenous Amazon church

Raul belongs to the Hunikuin people group and grew up deep in the Amazon between the border of Peru and Brazil. Raul lost his dad at an early age. His mother remarried, but his step-father resented Raul, so he grew up lacking basic things like clothing, food, and the love of a father. One of the founders of our local partner ministry visited his community when Raul was in his late teens. Raul heard the Gospel and learned he had a Heavenly Father that loved and cared for him. Since then, Raul became a believer and was equipped to serve in ministry. He helped found a church in his own community and even baptized his step-father. Today, Raul is leader of the same ministry that shared the Gospel with him. He along with his wife Ayda, is a beacon of light for isolated and marginalized tribal peoples in Peru.

Partnership Focus

Our partnership in Peru serves the native people groups living in remote regions of the Amazon rainforest in Peru. Their holistic programs offer health services, clean water initiatives, and education. They use storytelling to share the Gospel and plant healthy churches among tribal communities.

Featured Projects

Afghanistan Relief

On August 15, the Taliban took control of the capital city of Kabul. Our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan are in turmoil and many have fled to the Pakistan border. Our local partner in Pakistan is already at the border helping families in need.

We are committed to helping those suffering in and around the borders of Afghanistan. We are working at long term solutions to make sure these families are cared for in a holistic way.

Your gift will help provide immediate help in ways of food and provision of basic needs as well as relationship building to meet spiritual and emotional needs they are dealing with.
