The Latest News
Today, many of the cities in Bolivia are shut-down due to blockades and protests against the manipulation of the legal system that will allow the President to run for election beyond the term limits set forth in the Bolivian Constitution. The blockades seem to be peaceful, we hope it stays that way and that things do not intensify as the election draws near in 2019.
Please keep the Bolivian people in your prayers as well as the Missionaries and Christians who live and work here. It would be a good idea to pray for the Bolivian President as well as the appointed and elected officials.
11 Million People in Bolivia
Need the Gospel.
Bolivia is a wonderful country with rich traditions and a strong cultural heritage. However, underneath the beauty there is an environment of sin that reaches into all areas of life. With Bolivia being steeped in poverty, people go to extreme measures in an effort to simply survive. This manifests itself in many criminal and abusive activities that often enslave the Bolivian people.
Religiously, on the surface Bolivians seem religious. However, their faith practices are divided between the formal religion of the Catholic Church and the pagan religions of the Andean people. One national leader said: “I’m Catholic, but I have my own religion”. There is a lot of confusion about Spiritual things among the Bolivian people. The picture is even darker with the element of open Satanism and Occult Superstition.
Poverty, crime, abuse, superstition, and outright paganism are only symptoms of greater problem that can only be solved by Jesus Christ. The message of the Gospel is the only way that these types of problems can truly be changed. The Gospel is the only message that offers true hope and change and Bolivians need this message.
Jeff & Sandra Price have served as Missionaries for 10 years. They have spent 7 of those years working among the Bolivian people in the cities of Tarija and Cochabamba. They have many years of ministry, professional, clinical, and practical experience. As they work in Bolivia they are able to utilize their experience to help them serve people more effectively. However, their ministry has three main areas of focus: Church Planting, Discipleship, and Leadership Training. Their ministry helps establish new churches with Bolivian leadership and they help these churches win, train, and prepare Bolivians to reach their own people with the Gospel.
