YOU CAN HELP!
YOU CAN HELP!
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.
Jeff and Sandra Price were married July 16, 1983, and have served the Lord throughout their lives together. For the last several years, they have served at Victory Baptist Church in Maryville, Tennessee. However, God moved their hearts and led them back to the country of Bolivia where they previously served. Seeing God move in their lives, Victory Baptist is sending them back to the field and is an active part of their work. They will depart in January of 2017 and invite you to be part of what God is doing in their lives and work.
Would you like to be a part of helping Jeff and Sandra’s work in Bolivia?
Here are some suggestions: The most important thing is to join them in prayer. Beyond that, you can partner with them financially as well. As you might imagine, there are many financial challenges when living and working in a country where it is illegal for a foreigner to hold a job that should be reserved for a Bolivian worker. Therefore, the Prices need help with finances. You can support them monthly, periodically, or with one time gifts.
Help on the field is always a need. Jeff & Sandra KNOW that God has a plan and is using them in Bolivia. But, more people are needed in the work. In fact, they would love to introduce you to the work in Bolivia first hand. Perhaps God would have you come to Bolivia on a Ministry Trip or even permanently to work among the Bolivian People.
