The Ucayali-Yurua Asheninka live a subsistence lifestyle, connected to the land with only enough food for one or two days. They must work hard to produce enough to eat, and their hunters do not find enough meat. To make matters worse, the lands of indigenous peoples are often exploited by loggers and other outsiders.
Animism still has a strong grip on the lives of the Ucayali-Yurua Asheninka. Christianity is often viewed as the religion of those who wish to use them, so they want nothing to do with it. Only a few Ucayali-Yurua Asheninka identify as Christians.
Missionaries who can offer medical treatment and perhaps a medical facility would greatly improve their lives. Also, teachers committed to students' welfare would help in improving their lives for the future.
"And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28
Pray for believers in today’s people group to be courageous in their witness for Christ and fear God, not men.
May the few believers grow strong in the Word, resulting in a people movement to Christ. Pray for the Lord to improve their lives physically, economically and spiritually. Pray for the Lord to prepare and raise up Christ followers who will lay down their lives for the Ucayali-Yurua Asheninka people. Pray for the Holy Spirit to prepare their hearts to hear of the savior of all mankind.
