Chapman Donates Proceeds to Waodoni Tribe

For the last performance of his
nationwide 58-city “Live Out Loud” tour, Steven Curtis Chapman
donated all the proceeds of the Oklahoma City date, totaling over
$70,000, to the Waodoni Tribe of Ecuador. Chapman and Mart
Green, President of Mardel Stores and Bearing Fruit
Communications, a non-profit organization, made this generous gift
possible. Green covered all the expenses for the concert in
Oklahoma City.
Bearing Fruit is currently producing the feature-length documentary
“Beyond the Gates,” a film telling the story of how God touched the
lives of those in the Waodoni tribe. For more information about the
documentary, please visit their website,
According to Bearing Fruit, the proceeds from this concert will be
used to purchase two boats and a new airplane to help transport
medical supplies and sick people through the Amazon jungle.
Steve Saint, son of missionary Nate Saint killed by the Waodoni tribe,
was overwhelmed and so thankful for the generosity of Oklahoma
City. “Thanks to their love, we will be able to build a customized bush
plane to move medical supplies and the seriously ill throughout the
jungle,” declares Saint. “Their [Waodoni] ability to fend for
themselves without dependence on outsiders will assure the very
existence of this people.”
The “Live Out Loud” tour, sponsored by Wycliffe Bible Translators
(, drew more than 200,000 people during its 58-city
