I want to recommend a book entitled Bruchko. It is the story of a 19 year-old man who left this country determined to bring the story of Jesus to isolated Indian tribes in South America.
He left Minnesota with absolutely no support from his family and with little money in his pocket. All he had was incredible faith. He determined that he wanted to penetrate the jungle and somehow offer the gospel to a tribe that was greatly feared by entire country of Colombia. The word most often used to describe this group was "murderous".
He does it. I won't give away details, but with God's help, he did it. The incredible hardships he overcame would have stopped any ordinary person. The story proves that we should never rule out anyone as a potential brother or sister in Christ. There are no circumstances that God can't conquer.
