Uncontacted Tribes (Missions Monday)

CNN just came out with a report of a tribe that has never had contact with the outside world. When the tribe spotted an aircraft flying over their village they came out with warpaint and arrows to defend their land. According to research there are only around 100 uncontacted tribes in the world today and most of them are still in the amazon. Anthropologists and historical records say that being the first one to contact a new tribe rarely ends well and is not advised. However being the first one to share Christ with someone is unmatchable. Matthew 24 states that every people group must hear of Christ before his return and that includes the one pictured. I can only hope that this report from CNN gave some follower of Christ the burden to go.
