One of the most effective tools to reach river communities is what we call Medical Boat Evangelism. There are literally hundreds of communities along the Amazon river tributaries that have no access to medical care. By docking up near the community, and opening a one or two day clinic, we are given the opportunity to share the love of Jesus and pray for their needs. We will be able to provide free medical and dental treatment, medications, vitamins, eye glasses and hygiene products as well as distribute shoes and clothing donated by our city churches. In the evening, evangelistic services will be held by pastors and missionaries accompanying the medical team. The power of God’s Word along with this practical demonstration of love will open the door to plant river churches in areas along the river where there are no established Christian Churches.
