sharing the gospelAll Nations, an international organization that trains and sends out missionaries, is grieving the death of one of its own.

Dr. Mary Ho, international executive leader of the group All Nations, says they are still in shock over the death of 26-year-old John Allen Chau. He was killed earlier this month by local tribesmen when he attempted to share Jesus with them on the remote North Sentinel Island in the Indian Ocean.

Ho tells OneNewsNow it is their hope that the tribesmen will know the love and the goodness of Christ because that is what Chau gave his life for.

"Since he was 18 years old, he knew he was called to share the love of God with the North Sentinelese," says Ho, "and every decision and every step he's taken was to thoroughly prepare himself for this task."

Ho gives examples of his dedication. "He majored in health, in sports medicine, in exercise science; he was trained as a wilderness EMT; he was trained in linguistics and cultural anthropology. So that it not only prepared him but it prepared him to really love and care well for the North Sentinelese people."

Ho hopes Chau's story will inspire other believers to follow their God-given purpose and to live a selfless life.

According to All Nations, Chau joined their organization in 2017 and had previously taken part in missions projects in Iraq, Kurdistan, and South Africa.
