BOLIVIA 2014 MISSION TRIP UPDATE
Thank you all so much for your prayers and generous support! Our two week mission trip to Bolivia was wonderfully successful!
We spent our first couple of days with the children of Casa de Esparanza in Caranavi.
After leaing the childrens camp we began the long journey to Mojos. After a short (compartivly) walk, we traveled half a day by bus to reach our boats and then another six hours by boat to a remote village, Mapiri. We camped in a church and provided medical, dental and vision services to the village that night.
The next morning our taxi's drove onto canoes that took us across the river. After a couple of days of travel we reached the wonderful village of Apolo where we were well taken care of by the Landivar family in their hotel.
Leaving Apollo at 4am we took a taxi to the Tuichi River where we rafted our team across three at a time, then luggage. The men from Mojos brought several donkeys to help carry supplies. We began our 2 1/2 day hike in the Amazon Jungle, up and down the Andes Mountians (31 miles). We had church service with the people of Mojos that night, Eddie lead the service. We spent the next full day playing with kids, providing medical services and cooking with the women. That evening before service we presented Bibles in Spanish and Quechuan. No one in the villiage had access to a Bible before, although some had been told about the Lord. The leader of the villiage told the people to "Treat thier Bibles better than they would thier own family." They asked us "Why?" - Why were we there, why were we helping them, why do we care? God sent us, The Lord cares so much he laid down his life, we wanted to be his hands of love and encouragement. After a tearful goodbye we left for the long trek back to Apolo.
As much as our visit blessed the Bolivians, it blessed us too. Lets be good stewards with what The Lord gives us and treasure His Word above all things.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
