Linda Wertheimer talks with Michael Loftis, president of the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism, about the work that his organization's missionaries were doing in Peru. Loftis discusses how the shooting down of a plane over Peru might affect the Association's approach to its work. The Association has 1,300 people in 65 countries. James and Veronica Bowers went to Peru in 1994, lived on a houseboat, and traveled among villages on the Amazon to preach and teach the Bible.
