PER09 - Personal support of Oscar Tello
Oscar carries out his ministry in the city of Lima and in the jungle of Peru where he visits five different native communities periodically. Oscar is the President of Segadores, a Peruvian church planting group dedicated to reaching the tribes of the Amazon basin.
History Of Partnership
Oscar is part of the Segadores mission team and came to know the Saviour while living in the jungle. Bright Hope has partnered with him since 2000.
Various unreached tribal groups living in the Peruvian Amazon. Amongst these groups there are tribes that are new to civilization speaking a language that was previously unknown.
What We Like About The Partnership
There are a number of points we like about this partnership one of which is the fact that Oscar is involved with people groups who a number of years ago had no contact with civilization. We are also excited about the passion that Oscar and the other Segadores missionaries have for the unreached, this translates into tireless and selfless commitment to bringing the Gospel to these people. We also like the sensitivity and carefulness with which Oscar approaches the delicate task of bringing God’s life-changing message to these tribes. This is indicative of all the Segadores missionaries.
Oscar was born in Apurimac on 17 October 1965. He became a Christian on 16 January 1986 in a very critical situation of his life. He studied at Upper Room Pentecostal Bible Institute and was called to missions through the calling of Paul in the book of Acts. He has been the president of Segadores, just recently stepping down. He is a passionate evangelist and discipler and is also involved in training tribal missionaries to become missionaries to their own people.
Other People Involved
The rest of the Segadores team who work along with Oscar.
Oscar was recently married to a Christian Romanian woman, Aura, who shares his passion to reach the tribes of the Peruvian Amazon.
Vision And Annual Strategy
The vision is to reach unreached people groups living in Peru and the annual strategy is to systematically break down the barriers that exist with the tribes that Oscar currently works with. This is accomplished via community projects like providing water, safety training in regards to health and to awareness of dangers from terrorist and drug groups. Only when this kind of strategy is performed will the opportunities arise to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This has already borne fruit through the work of Oscar and the rest of the Segadores team.
