The Wayuu are considered an unreached people group. They have a population of around 600,000 people. Bringing the gospel to the Wayuu is challenging in many ways especially with language and cultural barriers.
The Wayuu have a New Testament translation; however, the Old Testament is currently being translated. In order to overcome the language barrier, we have partnered with Faith Comes By Hearing to provide the Wayuu people with access to the gospel in their native tongue. We do this through the Proclaimer. A Wayuu church leader will bring a Proclaimer into a Wayuu village and ask the permission of their leader to host listening sessions. For thirty minutes every week, the people of the village can listen to the recording and let God’s pure word convict them.
At Bread of Hope, we believe in empowering the Wayuu people in order to reach their unreached communities. We believe they are the key in unlocking cultural barriers. We are committed to help train Wayuu leaders in the gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s Word so that they can multiply disciples for God’s Kingdom. Throughout the year we provide biblical training for Wayuu pastors and leaders. Helping them understand the biblical basis of the gospel and disciple-making.
