Reaching the Amazon's Isolated Tribes

Ad Feedback

Christian missionary Michael Dawson has lived anything but an ordinary life.

Working in the Amazon rain forest, he's spent his entire life, from birth until today, living with a tribe called the Yanomamo.

Recently, a move called The Enemy God was produced about the Yanomamo people and their interaction with missionaries like Dawson.

Dawson, who also wrote a book about his experiences called Growing Up Yanomamo, told Christian World News that the tribe was accepting to outsiders and to the gospel, refuting claims that ministering to indigenous tribes harms the people and their culture.
