In this season of joyful praise and thanksgiving, we want to share how God is working through you in Bolivia.
Enjoy this new update from our team—
Feliz Navidad from Bolivia!
As you may already know, Bolivia is a country with great needs. It’s home to more than 13,000 orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children. Of these children, an estimated 5,000 live within the city of Cochabamba.
Nobody is more vulnerable than a child without a safe and stable family.
So since 2013, we have served orphaned and vulnerable children in Cochabamba—caring for children in Christian family-style homes, helping children successfully transition into adulthood, and supporting indigenous adoption.
By God’s grace and with your support, 2021 has been another wonderful year of ministry!
Would you join us in praising God for these three milestones, specifically?—
This year, one of the young ladies from our transition program graduated from nursing school.
Even in the middle of political conflicts and a global pandemic, she finished strong, all while maintaining a full-time job. We’re so proud of her hard work and determination.
After graduating, she was able to use her skills in the girls home, helping care for one our children who recently had surgery. She now hopes to get into medical school next year.
During this past year, three of our boys were adopted.
Knowing how rare and difficult the adoption process can be in Bolivia, we are even more in awe of God’s goodness and faithfulness in providing these boys with a permanent family.
Even with online learning, our students’ education has continued.
It has been almost two years since our children have been physically present in school, but there is hope that school will be in-person next year.
The kids are currently on summer break until February and are looking forward to special activities in the home, like karaoke competitions, picnics, in-home “spa” days, and (of course) LOTS of soccer!
All of this and more is made possible through the generosity of people like you.
Thank you for being an important part of these kids’ story.
On behalf of the students and staff in Bolivia, Feliz Navidad!
