“Peru Christian Outreach Mission Trip Fundraiser” is an original digital painted photo art collection by Brian Cimins taken during his SpiritQuest trips between 2011-2013 to Iquitos, Peru. There are Limited Edition 2 of 2s and one-of-a-kind pieces of art donated to “Quechuan Bible Outreach Mission 2023” available for preview and support at: https://opensea.io/collection/perumission
Story behind the Photo: Photo taken on December 5, 2011 at Bora Village on Rio Momon in Iquitos, Peru of one of the future tribal leaders whom I befriended while visiting their welcoming celebration. We were served Amazon River fish on huge banana leaves and danced with them for hours plus enjoyed blow darts and other fun games with the kids and young adults within the camp.
The Digital painting renditions are from original photos as well as hand drawing processing by Brian Cimins donated to “NFTs for a Cause” to fundraise for Peruvian Mission Trips with Quechuan Bibles at http://GalleryHope.com
Warning: SpiritQuest practices sorcery (witchcraft) which is an abomination to God, these photos are only being used to fundraise a Christian Outreach Mission trip to bring Bibles to the long long tribes of the Momon River in Iquitos, Peru in their native language of Quechuan. Our goal is to lead them out of the darkness of sorcery and witchcraft into the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ who can renew minds, restore souls and give us a new heart. “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do” Jesus proclaimed on the cross before saying “it is finished” meaning the wages of sin is death has been paid once for ALL.
All of these pictures have been painted digitally for color correction and beauty to help raise money for a future Amazon River outreach ministry to bring the local tribes copies of the Holy Bible in Quechuan, the native language of less than 2 million people in the world. The urgency to visit in 2023 is because the full Bible translation is near completion and we only have 1-2 more generations to reach them with the gospel in their native language.
BONUS: Unlockable Free Audiobook copy of “Meditate With Me: The Quest to Christ” about the journey from Buddhism to the truth in Christ, which is the prequel to “The True Vine” exposing shamanism and sharing the gospel of Jesus
The Book of Matthew was posted in Quechuan 4 years ago on one of our YouTube channels and has already received 10,000+ views and dozens of heartfelt comments from Peruvian citizens:
Limited Editions: Only 2 of 2 of each print will ever be produced as NFTs to support http://GalleryHope.com #NFTsForACause specifically for Quechuan Bible project and outreach ministry to all of the tribes on the Momon River including the Bora.
The pictures and original art is from both “Ayahuasca” and “Huachuma” retreats and pilgrimages with Howard Lawler, the founder of a plant based medicine retreat on Amazon River (Rio Momon), to the Andes Mountains of Peru.
My friendship with Howard Lawler over the years transitioned from “student healer” to outreach ministry about the truth in Jesus Christ where I encouraged Howard to turn away from sorcery and witchcraft once it became evident what they were practicing. Sadly, Howard passed away in October 2019 and I’m not sure if he knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book” – Revelation 22:12-18

Our 2nd book #MeditateWithMe series about the peril of shamanism should be released in Spring or Summer of 2023.
Meditate with me: The True Vine is a book project by Brian Cimins to share his testimony for Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is the second book under the “Meditate with Me” series created to encourage those who’ve been on the wrong path in life to come to know Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but through Him.
The following testimony and true life experiences were my specific path to Jesus Christ. There are many individual ways to be drawn to Jesus as Lord and Savior who died for the sins of the world and rose again proving He is God. We remember that we’ve all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and that Jesus Christ alone is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE and no one goes to the Father but through Him.
Please do not think I believe I am better than anyone else, I was on the path to destruction too before coming to Jesus. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, the wages of sin is death, meaning the payment of sinning against a perfect and Holy God is eternity in a lake of fire. Even one lie, one lustful look at a woman, one blasphemy (using God’s name as a curse word), one time dishonoring your parents, even a small theft of downloading music off the internet, and everything else we might ever tell anyone, God knows everything and even those hidden sins would result in an eternal punishment in a lake of fire without a Savior. That’s the bad news
The Good News is that Jesus Christ came to earth to pay an eternal payment for the penalty of sin, He became the sinless lamb of God to take away the sins of the world, He rose again and ascended to heaven to prepare an eternal place for His in Our Father’s House.
Be reminded that Lucifer’s sin against God was pride too, please know I deeply care about your immortal soul, please repent of your sin and trust in Christ alone for salvation for life is a vapor, our souls are immortal and eternity is truly, truly forever and we will ALL face God when we die, He is either eternal Lord and Savior or eternal Judge.
Jesus is the only One who can forgive our sins and reconcile us for the penalty (or wages) of sin is death. He can restore our souls, renew our minds and give us a new heart, but most importantly He offers us a gift of grace, something we cannot earn, for we are saved by His grace through faith alone, not by works for God knew we would boast.
We are given eternal life with Him in heaven, based alone on our faith in Him and His work (death and resurrection) on the cross. When Jesus proclaimed, “it is finished”, He was proclaiming the penalty of sin was paid, we just need to Repent of sin (pride) and Trust in Him alone for salvation for we have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.” – John 14:6-11 (King James Version).
For far too long, I was so very embarrassed and afraid to share these stories because of the alluring nature of shamanism which is secretly, in fact, was sorcery and witchcraft, strictly forbidden by God and all throughout the Bible. But I realized God brought me there to testify to the world that Jesus Christ is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings and truly can restore our soul, renew our minds and give us a new heart.
These modern day “wizards of Oz” prey on those suffering with mental illness, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, life trauma and even traumatic brain injuries or addictions.
All of the glory goes to God, for He restores my soul, certainly not any “ancient plants” or sorcery or witchcraft or secret society with hidden knowledge in the middle of the jungle, Mountains, Pyramids of the world or even Masonic temples around the world.
Sadly, appealing to the flesh, the devil can promise physical healing but “what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul”, for the true healer is Jesus prophesied in the Book of Isaiah 900 years before Jesus walked on earth, The Word, the lamb of God to take away the sins of the world dwelt among us said, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5
This testimony is to shine light of Jesus Christ on the darkness of what the enemy falsely offers to some of the sickest and most indefensible humans on earth, the mentally ill, addicted, trauma and brain damaged become the shaman’s prey, ultimately for some sort of sacrifice to their father, the devil.
If you are suffering or feel all alone, depressed, please watch this:
Do not seek counsel or “healing” from shamans, sorcerers, witches or any occult memberships or secret societies. Anything done in darkness will be brought to the light, if you know anyone still practicing sorcery and witchcraft, share with them some of the scriptures mentioned throughout this book, write them down, read the full chapter and book around each verse you see to know the truth as well.
These “shamanic journeys” aren’t easy stories or memories to share, please know I share them as a stark warning against seeking council with shamanism, necromancers (speaking to the dead) or with any jungle medicine witch doctors if you are truly sick, mentally or physically. I plead with all of you reading to desperately repent of sin (pride first) and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation for we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory, we all need a savior in Jesus.
