Bolivia missionary

Serving other cultures at home or abroad: Cross-Cultural Servanthood

There's more than one Bolivia missionary who is blogging.  Over 9 million people live in the South American country of Bolivia, both rich and poor, both well known and almost forgotten.  Officially known as the Republic of Bolivia, it was named after Simón Bolívar, known as a liberator in South America.  The Republic was established in 1825.

But you want to know what God is doing in Bolivia, and how he's using people to share the love of Christ!  Let's visit our missionary blogs...

Our first Bolivia missionary is actually the 5 cup family!  Living in the city of Cochabamba, Dan and Daryl write this summary of their ministry:

Currently Dan is the Director for our team in Bolivia with short term teams, business as mission conferences, a sports ministry called BLESS, and a carpentry shop. There is a lot going on! In the midst of all this he also is a great dad and husband.

Daryl has started her own small business of making purses called Darli Moda. It is going well and has created some fantastic local contacts and witnessing opportunities. She also takes care of three kids and runs the home.

Here's a blog that was started even earlier - this time coming to you from Santa Cruz.  The blog is called Out There with the Beams, and it features - the Beams family!

If you're visiting the Beams' blog, don't miss all the links on their sidebar.  They have some great photos and more information about their ministry, such as their well-drilling work.

And just one more for now - Homes of Love!  We're back in Cochabamba at the Casa de Amor, a children's home.  We've been meeting the kids and hearing the stories at this blog since 2008!
