The Carabayo, Macusa in Colombia are a remote and isolated indigenous people group in the Rio Pure National Park region near Brazil. They are also called the Aroje; their language is called Carabayo and is also referred to as Amazonas Macusa or Yuri. There are no translations in their language and no language resources. They practice a mixture of ethnic religions which includes the worship of nature and ancient spirits.
Engagement // What’s Happening Now
Currently, there aren’t any Carabayo, Macusa who are known to be followers of Jesus; there are surrounding tribes who have been engaged with the Gospel. Surrounding tribes have seen miracles which have drawn them to Jesus. Through prayer and perseverance whole tribes have come to know Jesus in Colombia. Pray for followers of these tribes that they may reach out to the Carabayo.
Sustainability // The Bigger Story
Colombia has recently seen a revival and move of God in its cities. Many are uniting with cross-cultural workers to reach out to the remote tribes. The following video gives us a glimpse as to the work that is being done through LAC to reach remote and isolated tribes like the Carabayo, Macusa.
Please spend a few minutes in prayer for:
- Pray for the gospel message to be made available for the Carabayo, Macusa people in their native language.
- Pray for Carabayo who travels into populated areas. Pray that they may meet Christians who will share the story of Jesus with them.
- Pray for the Colombian national church, that they may be united as they reach those in their country.
- The majority of the Carabayo, Macusa are isolated from other people groups, pray that missionaries may be able to physically reach them.
