Mincaye Enquedi 1930 – 2020

Very few people will know the name, and fewer still will mourn his passing, but Mincaye Enquedi passed away peacefully at his home in the tiny village of Tzapino, in April. The way he came to Christ is, however, well known.

Mincaye, meaning ‘wasp’, was born into the violent Huaorani tribe, called the Aucas or ‘savages’, in the Amazon Rain Forest of eastern Ecuador, South America. Historically, every encounter with this remote tribe had ended in death. On 8 January 1956, five American missionaries found this out, to their fatal cost, when they were tragically killed in the jungles of Ecuador.
