(Worthy News) - An American missionary was killed while trying to bring the gospel to one of the most isolated tribes in the world.

John Allen Chau, 27, took a ride with local fisherman to India's North Sentinel Island, which is home to a tribe of hunter-gatherers, who are cut off from the outside world.

Chau was reportedly faced a "flurry of arrows" as soon as he stepped on the island.

"He was attacked by arrows but he continued walking. The fishermen saw the tribals tying a rope around his neck and dragging his body," the source said. "They were scared and fled but returned next morning to find his body on the seashore."

A source, who asked not to be named, told Reuters that before he was killed, Chau wrote he was "doing this to establish the kingdom of Jesus on the island...Do not blame the natives if I am killed." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]

  1. This young man looked like a sincere person with a true mission in his mind. So sad. He was really a victim of a tribe trying only to exist in questionable times.
