What is Frontier Tribal Missions?
My name is Scotty Hayes, and my wife Jadison and I are so excited to obey and follow the Lord’s call on our lives to the international mission field. We have spent the last 15 years investing into the lives of teenagers through student ministries in the local church. We have spent the last eight of those years at our home church, Emmanuel Baptist Church in Blackshear Georgia. During that time we have been blessed with three boys; Judah (6), Silas (4), Titus (2) and are expecting one more boy in February.
Now we believe God is calling our family to move to Pucallpa, Peru to live in a more strategic location to reach and plant a church among the Amahuaca people. The Amahuaca are a small unreached unengaged people group isolated in the Amazon Jungle. This means that there is little to no Gospel presence and no other missionary effort going to them with a strategy to see a healthy Bible believing church established. To follow this call, we are starting a nonprofit organization called Frontier Tribal Missions. Frontier Tribal Missions will have a board of trustees and bylaws to help oversee the overall mission work and financial resources that we believe God will use to reach some of the most unreached people and places of the world.
Be Involved in Frontier Tribal Missions
GO – Frontier Tribal Missions will provide an avenue for individuals and groups to be an active part of the missionary work. Short term trips can be a huge blessing to the tribes, career missionaries, and to the short term missionaries themselves. Be on the lookout in the near future for opportunities to GO!
PRAY – Most importantly we ask that you pray. Specifically, right now, we need you to pray for us as we:
- Learn the language
- Raise ministry funds
- Find a future home in Pucallpa
- Transition our boys to a new culture and way of life
- Leave family and friends at home (Please pray for them as well!)
GIVE - You can be a vital part of mission work in Peru by giving. Although we are Southern Baptist, we are not going through the International Mission Board and will not receive any money from the Cooperative Program. Maybe God is leading you to help financially support the work we will be doing with tribal groups in the Amazon. At the bottom of this page, you will find two different ways to give. You can give a one-time gift now and an ongoing monthly gift for later. Because of the nature of our budget, a monthly gift is preferred, but we also have some needs that one-time gifts will be applied to immediately.
Finally, pray for the Amahuaca people that God would be preparing their hearts.
