The Dark Side of the Jungle #2

Almost everyone here in the jungle believes that something called "El Tunchi” exists and is very real. The people that live in the small villages and out in the countryside have all had their run-ins with the “Tunchi” and he is greatly feared by all.

The “Tunchi” is the wandering spirit of a person who has died and goes about the countryside haunting whoever it can. This “Tunchi” makes a distinct whistling sound and if you try to imitate it's whistle it comes closer and closer in order to terrorize and even kill you. “El Maligno” is the Devil himself who is always flying around behind the “Tunchi” trying to catch him and take him to hell. According to the belief, you really shouldn't mess with the “Maligno” because he will treat you even worse than the “Tunchi” would.

We who know the True and Living God have nothing to fear because we are to: “ be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.”  (Eph 6:10-13)

Sounds like a Don Richardson opportunity. Use the culture to explain The Gospel. Good work Tuttles on how you pay attention!
