Amerindians respond positively to the gospel; there are churches in all tribal groups, many of them active and thriving. The goal of NTM and Avant is to phase out their work as indigenous churches grow and mature. Pray that other ministries might follow suit and allow the flourishing of indigenous leadership and indigenous expressions of Christian faith. There is a NT in each language, except two which have works in progress; pray for their completion.
