Alaida belonged to one of Chile’s indigenous tribes … but not an Indian tribe in the mountains —She belonged to an “urban tribe” in the city: she was caught up in the punk lifestyle.
But the environment was rife with alcohol and drug use. Alaida was in major trouble.
“I was always looking for ways to escape the loneliness that consumed me. I started cutting my arms, which brought me some relief.”
But then a Christian friend of theirs began inviting them to church. He was involved with a OneHope outreach to Urban Tribes.
At church, she and her boyfriend received the Gospel message in a way they could understand: they were given the special edition Book of Hope to help them learn more about Jesus.
“Now my vision of life has changed. I know I am not alone, and I know my God. I know He is my Father, and He will never forsake me.”
