Ember Bridge

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

-2 Timothy 1:6-7


An ember in the darkness...

Fighting for basic human needs and human rights for a forgotten and neglected people group.


11 deaths in 2023 crossing the river:

  • Impassable 3 months/year due to high flow rate.

  • Unpredictable 8 months/year due to flash floods.

     ***Another death as we are developing this website on June 12th...too many...let's go!

Seven villages use this trail as only means of: 

  • Life Essentials: part of 18-mile hike to closest road.

  • Medicine: No medical assistance in over two years due to how isolated they are. 

  • School: Teachers hike in 18-miles from off reservation and children hike across the river to get to the school. 

  • Church: Locals are led thru witchcraft, basic necessities listed above are portrayed as evil. Local pastor hikes across this river to minister.

Local teenage girls are trafficked/abused and abandoned pregnant.

  • Access to education, medicine, and ministry are the leading action to reduce human trafficking.
