The closer a village is to the highway, the closer it is to wealth. You have access to markets. You have access to the bus heading to the cities. Often, you will find access to water. The farther away from the highway you are, the further you are from civilization.
Right now our church planters are praying about heading into a jungle reason to do some gospel work. These areas are far from the highways. No power. No internet. No running water. Often, the religion of the people is an ancient form of Hinduism, removed from the popular form Americans are accustomed to.
We are prepping a team of 20 to go into this jungle region and begin pregospel work. Please pray for health, for safety, and for God to open eyes. More details to follow.
