Back from Bolivia

“A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the
widows, is God in his holy habitation”
Psalm 68:5
Seeing God’s hand at work in the country of Bolivia through
the service of Nacer Ministries was truly inspiring! This trip has truly opened
my eyes to, not only life in different country, but it helped me see how easily
I take the “little things” that we enjoy everyday for granted! Things such as
hot water, A/C (it’s the middle of summer down there =), variety and access of
food, and a host of other blessings become much more appreciated when they
aren’t as available! I definitely came away from this time more grateful than
before I went! LOL
I wouldn’t trade this experience or the lasting
memories that I have made because of this time for anything. I saw life through
a different perspective!
The majority of our trip was focusing on
different construction needs that the ministry had. The Lord blessed the work
of our hands, and we were able to complete a large roofing project while we
were there! Even though temperatures were in the 100’s with 100% humidity, God
gave us strength to endure! It was truly a blessing to be apart of a great
group of guys who had sacrificed time and resources to serve these orphan homes
in this way! I was challenged by the love and the commitment of my fellow team
Even in the midst of our busy work schedule, we
were able to spend time with the kids! Even though my Spanish is really
limited, I really enjoyed getting to carry on simple conversations with the
boys! They loved any attention…they are really hungry for love and approval of
anyone! My heart was deeply touched by the openness that they expressed even
through our broken communication. =’)
The time spent there was definitely worth it! And
I am really grateful that God allowed it and provided in more than one way for
me to be able to make this trip!
Please pray for the Nacer Ministries! That God
will continue to raise it up to minister light and truth to boys and girls in
need in Santa Cruz, Bolivia! God kept us safe and
blessed our time! It was truly fruitful! Thank you for your part in it!
