A real Blessing…
Many people in Bolivia are still enduring hardship because of the impact that COVID has had in the country. Our dear friends Ronald Mora and Helen Arias (along with their sons) are working in a couple of areas of Tarija that have been economically hit extremely hard.
You may remember seeing pictures where we recently helped provided winter clothing to some children who are part of the Children’s Clubs in the barrios of “4 de Marzo” and “Primavera”. Yet, the needs in these communities does not stop there and many families are just barely scraping by. Many are hungry.
To help with that we asked if we could provide some food for the families in the 2 Bible Study groups that meet where these kid’s clubs are located. Just this past weekend food was bought and distributed among these families. Helping people with physical sustenance is always good. But, knowing that they are also receiving Spiritual sustenance and growing is the real blessing.
Here are some pictures of these families… ... See MoreSee Less
As you may remember, we built a new building for Iglesia Bautista La Luz in 2017. Fortunately, we built a building that was able to be disassembled should we ever need to move. In 2019 we lost the lease on the property we were renting when the owner decided he wanted to build in the very spot where we had put our Auditorium. So, we took the building down and relocated it to a new location. It has been a blessing.
We were not able to add classrooms and our children’s Sunday School ministry has met together in one class for all ages. However, post-COVID there are new requirements that have been handed down by the municipality where we are located. They want the children’s classes to be divided and want to maintain the requirement for social distancing. Bolivia is still struggling with COVID on many fronts, and it appears that some sort of requirements will be in place for the foreseeable future. Thus, we need to build separate classrooms so that we can comply with the new regulations and continue reaching children with the Gospel.
Within the next week or so, concrete floors will be poured in an area behind our auditorium. It is not much but it is a start. The plan is to use tarps to divide the classes until funding can be secured to build a roof, walls, and install electricity. Here are a few pictures of the children of Iglesia Bautista La Luz and the area where the concrete will be poured. ... See MoreSee Less
