The official language of the Wayuu people in Venezuela and Colombia is Wayuunaiki.  Traditionally, the church has tried to reach the Wayuu by sharing the gospel with them in Spanish which has caused confusion and misinterpretation of God’s Word.  It’s always better to share the gospel in a nation’s heart language.  Transformation occurs when there is true understanding of the message.
Our desire at Bread of Hope is to equip and empower native churches with resources to reach their Wayuu communities. We want them to be able to do this effectively making sure that they are adapted to their language and culture.  The Proclaimer is our best outreach tool.

Hearing God’s Word in their own language is such a powerful experience for the Wayuu.  Last October, our local staff in Venezuela went on a mission trip to the Wayuu regions in Colombia.  They were amazed to see the effectiveness of the Proclaimer among the Wayuu they had just met.  For many of them, it was their first time to hear God’s Word spoken in their own language.  They were mesmerized and walked miles to sit and hear the Word spoken through the Proclaimer.

Currently, we have 11 listening groups reaching 600 people.  One of our goals this year is to reach 5,000 people through our Proclaimer groups.  God is doing amazing things for the Wayuu and thanks to Him and your support we will be able to meet and exceed our goals for 2015.
