Weeks 25-27 Update

Here I go again, not posting for three weeks. 😅 One of these days I’ll get back into the habit…

Week 25: Feb. 9-15

The second full week of February was full of water! I got to experience the REAL rainy season downpours. Ponds were overflowing, which resulted in the road being washed out in one place. But thanks to local men and the guys working at the children’s home, a beautiful bridge now graces that spot. It did make going home from school interesting, though; there wasn’t a way across yet. So one of my students lead me through the brush, around a pond, and back to the road again. It was quite fun. 😁

Less fun was saying goodbye to my casita mate, Tania. I miss her a lot, but I’m also so excited for everything God has next for her!

Tania and me outside our casita 🏡

We had our 100th day of school this week, so we had ice cream and brownies to celebrate. It was wild to think that a year before, the Yoders and I were just barely getting to know each other. It’s always fun to look back and remember where God has lead me!

And then came Valentine’s Day… remember the flowers my dad had sent me? They peaked at just the right time! It felt so much like my Heavenly Father decided to make it a gift from Him as well. 😊

The flowers my dad sent me as they appeared on Valentine’s Day!

Week 26: Feb. 16-22

This week, school started up again for the children at HERO! Recess is a lot more fun for my students now that they have friends around to enjoy it with, haha. 🙂 God so beautifully provided teachers. One is the pastor from the church the home attends. I love so much the thought of these kids’ pastor being able to invest so much in them!

Praying before the first day of school

The other teacher is my new casita mate! She speaks only Spanish, so I’m excited to have many more opportunities to practice as I get to know her more.

We had an unseasonal south wind (called a sur) come through! Imagine a cold front bringing 60 degrees in the middle of a midwestern summer in the United States and that was close to the equivalent. It was nice to enjoy the cooler weather for a few days!

Week 27: Feb. 22-28

This week began with Carnaval, which can be compared to Mardi Gras, though much more widespread. It’s a weekend of constant partying, throwing paint and water balloons at people, getting drunk, and over all making sure you get all of your sinning out of your system before Lent. Many churches will have camping trips that weekend to get away from all of that.

After three days of this, many of the children of those partying are suffering from lack of care. I was able to go with the children’s home to give soup and water to whoever would come for it. Things like this always remind me of Jesus’ words – “And whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple, truly I tell you, he will never lose his reward.” Matthew 10:42 (CSB) What a promise!

The children from HERO didn’t have school on Monday or Tuesday, so for recess one day my students and I made a bonfire! Moments like that always make me feel like a successful teacher. 😂

I wanted to share a picture of the bonfire but apparently iCloud is holding it captive or something. 🤷‍♀️ So here’s a really cool picture of the children’s home as seen from the barn instead! 😜

We had a really significant weekend this week, but I think I’ll save those stories for my next update. 😉 In the meantime, please be praying…

  • For staff for the children’s home.
  • I lost a lot of sleep this last month, and I’m pretty tired for it. Pray not only that I would sleep well, but that I’d be able to catch up on what I lost!
  • Soon will come the time to make decisions about what I’m going to do next year. Pray for me and others involved in that!

May your hearts find rest in the unwavering faithfulness of Christ.

Blessings!

Longing | Week 24 Update

It was another unique week here in Bolivia – though it seems more and more that unique is the normal. 🙂

Not sure what kind of flower this is, but it sure is pretty! 😅 It’s growing at the children’s home.

My grandma had heart surgery toward the start of the week. It was hard to be away from home with something like that going on. I wanted so much to be able to be at the hospital, cheering her on in person.

Yet it was a sweet thing to be able to pray for her, and to know that those prayers mattered and were heard. There was also a sweetness in having a new opportunity to entrust those I love to Jesus. I guess I have to remember that I am able to love my loved ones from a distance; it just looks different than loving them when they are close by.

Preparing for the wedding reception!

The most exciting event of last week was a wedding! A Bolivian couple that loves the Lord wanted dearly to get married and asked for help in putting the wedding together. The family I’m living with handled the reception, which means I had the joy of helping put that together!

It refreshed my soul to see the love of the body of Christ practically played out in serving that couple, and to see the passion for Christ that the groom has. But what filled my heart the most after the wedding was the reminder that Jesus is coming again. The Lamb will be married to His bride. How my soul longs for that glorious day!

The newlyweds, Raul and Milca 😊

As always, here are some ways you can be praying for me and the work down here!

  • This coming week will mark our 100th day of school, and our last week until the Bolivian students start again! Pray for continued inspiration for me, and a fantastic start for those beginning school next week!
  • Keep praying for staff for the children’s home, especially for men and houseparents.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and love. Jesus loves you so very much!

Blessings in Him,

Olivia

Weeks 21-23 Update

These last few weeks have been full! My apologies for the lack of my regular update; hopefully no one was concerned, haha.

Week 21

I started spending more time with the staff at the children’s home (*coughFINALLYcoughcough* haha…)! Admittedly, a part of it probably had to do with the fact that Susanna is here! But in any case, it’s been great to spend time with them in the evening, talking and singing to Jesus together.

This week, I got to drive into town and get groceries! Haha sounds pretty mundane BUT keep in mind I’m in Bolivia. XD It’s amazing how good and freeing it feels to drive when you haven’t done so in a while! And it was very encouraging that I understood and was understood by the people I interacted with. I’m definitely still far from fluent, but thanking Jesus for the progress that’s there.

Driving! The dim lighting and bumpy roads made a clear picture nigh-well impossible. (Note I’m driving and not using my phone like the responsible young lady I am. 😜)

My highlight this week was the precious love of my dad. The Yoders had a friend, Rachel, come visit, and my parents had sent her a couple of things to give to me. One of them was an amaryllis bulb. (Not entirely sure how that one made it through customs, other than Jesus loves me. XD)

At first I was a little confused. I thought it was really sweet that they had sent that to me, but I could quite figure out why they had. THEN… I found a Valentine’s Day card.

See, every year, my dad gives me flowers for Valentine’s Day. When I lived states away from home, I could always expect a call from a confused grocery store employee trying to figure out where to drop them off for me. (I had odd living arrangements haha.)

I figured this would be the first year I didn’t get my flowers from my daddy. But he wasn’t about to give up so easily! So now Mavis is growing and reminding me every day of my father’s love.

Mavis shortly after she was planted. 🌺

Which reminds me every day of my heavenly Father’s love. He gave me a dad who loves me, and He made sure that flower got to me safely. But just like my daddy, He delights to give good gifts, He delights to remind His children of His love, and He won’t let anything stop Him from getting those tokens of His love to you. He thinks about you more often than my dad thinks about me – which, believe me, is a lot!

Dear saints, never forget: God LOVES you!

Week 22

The before mentioned Rachel was a lot of fun to get to know! And was she a blessing to us. Joyce had just come down with dengue (which is what necessitated my getting the groceries the week before) and the timing of Rachel’s visit was perfect.

Also that week, a new volunteer came to the children’s home! Her name is Mey. She went to culinary school and is now the full-time cook for the children’s home! This was a HUGE blessing, so if you’ve been praying for staff, take a moment to praise the Lord for His provision through Mey!

Tuesday, Maria came (she visited us around Thanksgiving) with her boyfriend, and later in the week they were joined by others from a worship team they were a part of. It was so precious to have these believers (and especially Maria!) around.

They had visited to lead worship at a electricity party at the children’s home! The home has had electricity since mid-last year, but the civil unrest caused the original celebration to be cancelled. But finally it came! The party itself was edifying; getting a chance to see so many of the people God has used to do provide various things to the home, getting to hear the Gospel preached in truth and power by a Bolivian believer, getting to worship Jesus in song and in action alongside other believers. It was everything a celebration should be. 😊

The electricity party!

Yet I think my highlight this week was when the worship team prayed for us before they left. Jesus did a powerful work of encouragement in my heart through their prayers and their words of encouragement. And it challenges me to remember the power that can come from the prayers we pray and the words we speak! Brothers and sisters, let us not fail to take every opportunity to build up the beautiful bride of Christ!

Week 23

This week was a mix of very normal and very different in very good ways. 🙂 School was pretty routine (other than compensating for a water pump that isn’t working… but that accomplished feeling of cleaning bathrooms without any running water is pretty cool 😂). I got another new scorpion (fourth time’s the to charm? I promise animals in my care don’t normally die on me like this 😅). Still enjoying and taking lots of pictures of the kittens. 😸

A picture of the kittens. 😂

Last Wednesday was one of those different days in the best of ways. Jesus gave me a special gift of grace, an unusually strong sense of joy in His presence. While I don’t want to ever base my faith on feelings rather than on truth, I intend to always embrace to the full those moments when I feel to my core that Jesus is ALIVE and worthy of all my adoration.

Because… Jesus IS alive and worthy of all my adoration. Whether I feel it or not. So I’ll ride the waves of His grace when it opens heaven wide and makes the spiritual feel real, and I’ll ride those same waves when it gives me the courage to continue to live according to what I know is real, whether I feel it or not.

This weekend was also different. The Yoder family was away, so everything was so quiet! It’s been incredibly refreshing. But it also included several opportunities to communicate in Spanish, so the practice was great and again, understanding and being understood is very encouraging!

Here are some prayer requests! Please let me know if there are specific things I can be praying for you all. 🙂

  • For details to come together for the children’s home school as the time to start approaches!
  • For a smooth transition when their school starts up again.
  • For staff for the children’s home.
  • Spiritual protection and refreshment of soul for all the staff and kiddos out here.

May Jesus Christ Himself encouraging and refresh your soul today! Always, He is enough.

With love in Him,

Olivia

Week 20 Update

This last week marched by pretty normally for me, but this last weekend was delightfully different! One fun event that took place during the week was a group from YWAM in Chile coming by the orphanage to bless the kiddos. I missed it, but by the stories I’ve heard and pictures and videos I’ve seen, I can tell it was a great visit.

Another fun little thing is that I’ve been able to teach everyone a tune for Juan 3:16 that I learned from a Spanish teacher at the last school I taught with! It’s fun to think of God storing up little things like that in each of His children, ready to be pulled out and bless those around them.

Now, Friday this week was a BIG day! The first thing I got to do was help pick up a friend of mine who came to volunteer at the children’s home! Susanna loves Jesus very much, and she will be here for the next three months. Keep her in your prayers as she pours out to see the Kingdom of God advanced in these precious kids!

Susanna and me!

I almost had the chance to donate blood for a very sick little girl, Valentina, on Friday. Long story short, the donation ended up not being needed, and she passed away that afternoon. It was a heavy thing, and it felt odd to be carrying the emotions of that along with the joy of having received Susanna. One thing I kept thinking about all afternoon was that creation is groaning. Things are not as they are meant to be. The world is messed up. But one day, Jesus will return and fix it all. Come, Lord Jesus!

Our last stop on Friday was Ventura mall to pick up my carnet (ID card)!!! So I’m officially officially a Bolivian resident now!!! (Again, not a citizen, just a resident. 🙂)

Maracuyá – aka Passion Fruit flower. This stunning flower is just growing in the Yoder’s front yard!

I got to enjoy the bus ride home with Susanna. It was a joy to be able to talk to her about mutual friends and hear about how things are in familiar places. As I was thinking about the comfort and security that comes with familiarity, I wondered what it would look like for Jesus to be all the familiarity I needed. What would it look like to go into the most unfamiliar place, but still feel at home because I knew Jesus was right there with me? Because I felt the familiarity of His presence and guidance, recalled the familiarity of His Word?

Always, Jesus is enough!

Three-week-old kittens cuddling with each other. You’re welcome. 😏😸

Please be praying…

  • For a good transition for Susanna and unity among the staff at the children’s home
  • For those who loved Valentina as they grieve her loss
  • For continued wisdom and inspiration for me as I teach
  • That God would bring staff and teachers for the children’s home

God bless you all abundantly!

In Christ,

Olivia

Embracing Jesus | Week 19 Update

Happy New Year, everyone! 🎆

I got to celebrate the arrival of 2020 by camping with the Yoders! It was a ton of fun and a refreshment to the soul. And there was something so profound about waking up to the dawn of the new year on a mountain in Bolivia. I don’t know what all God has in store for 2020, but I can’t wait to watch it play out. He only does wondrous things!

Sunrise at Las Alturas

This last week, it hit me how much I was missing and at times physically craving the comforts of home. Things like soft carpet that allows you to lay comfortably on the floor whoever you want. Air conditioning to give you relief from uncomfortable temperatures. Being able to communicate with ease with anyone I met. Having access to WiFi almost everywhere – being able to use the internet as I teach and being able to watch as much YouTube as I want.

(Okay, technically I COULD watch as much YouTube as I want. I would just be paying for every megabyte of it, haha…)

I think the coming and going of the holidays made me miss such things even more. What I didn’t realize was that I had started to close myself off to what the Holy Spirit wanted to do in me because I was feeling sorry for myself. Unintentionally, I put up a self-defensive wall. Not that doing so unintentionally makes that less of a problem.

A friend spoke into my life, and God gave her the discernment to realize what might be going on in my soul. When I brought all of this to God, He accepted my repentance and brought me into a beautiful renewal of soul.

Choosing to embrace the miniature hardships, rejoice in these little trials, and thank God for the minor discomforts I’m feeling, gave fresh wind to my sails. It’s as if once I chose joy, Jesus gave me an over abundance of it so that I wouldn’t run out as I spent it. 🙂 When you think of it, do pray for me that I would embrace all that God has for me in this season (while also exercising the wisdom of not forcing myself to embrace any difficulty that isn’t necessary).

Oh friends, when we embrace HIM, the result is always LIFE!

Here is a two-week-old kitten. Because nothing says life like a kitten! 😸 Muffin’s babies 🙂

One special moment this last week was when one of the girls from the children’s home stopped by to give me a scorpion to replace Screwtape! It had been crawling across their kitchen floor, and since I had recently lost Screwtape they thought of me, haha. I still haven’t figured out a name for the new one yet… 🦂

A volunteer for the children’s home will be arriving on Friday this week! I’ll be going into the city to pick up my Bolivian ID card when she comes. She’s a dear friend, so I’m very excited for that! Please pray for safety for her and us as we travel, and a good transition for her and the kiddos and staff at the children’s home!

I knew I’d been accepted into the family when the dogs started following me on walks.

Also pray…

  • For staff for the children’s home!
  • For provision of teachers for the orphanage’s school
  • For spiritual protection and discernment for me and the Yoders
  • For fresh inspiration as we near the halfway point of the school year!

May our wondrous Jesus fill you with His life as you embrace all that He is!

With joy in our Jesus,

Olivia

By Faith | Weeks 17-18 Update

Started out school last week with the kiddos bringing what I’m pretty sure is the most venomous caterpillar in the world to school. #boliviaproblems Ha. They knew not to touch a fuzzy caterpillar, so they coaxed the beautiful little thing onto a stick so that they could show it to me. They know I love things like that.

A species of giant silkworm moth caterpillar (I think haha). Kinda looks like a grub with sea anemones growing out its back.

We ended the week with a make-shift snow party; I brought white balloons to school and we had a snowball fight, made snowmen, and attempted a snow fort. It was a lot of fun and made for a great last day of school before Christmas break!

Christmas week started with a trip to Santa Cruz to continue my immigration paperwork! I am officially a Bolivian resident!!! I’ve had questions about that; it’s not citizenship. I’m still a foreigner, but I have permission to stay until December 2021.

The offices for getting my ID card are located at a beautiful mall – Ventura. It was literally one of the nicest malls I’ve ever been in. It felt more like I was in California than in Bolivia!

Ventura Mall

We have just one trip left to finish up all the immigration stuff, and that’s to pick up my ID card. What a good feeling it will be to hold that in my hands!

Tuesday, Christmas Eve, was the day for Christmas festivities. Lights and snowflakes and Christmas trees and presents adorned the living room. (It’s always amusing to me how even the Southern Hemisphere decorates with snow at Christmas.) I got to decorate Christmas cookies with the kiddos in the morning, which was a big mess and lots of fun!

Tuesday night we celebrated Jesus and exchanged gifts. Phil talked about some of the difficulties Mary and Joseph probably faced for the sake of God being born into this world. It made me really think, what difficulties am I willing to face, what misunderstandings am I willing to walk through, for the sake of seeing the life of Christ born in me and in those around me?

Feliz Navidad, Concepción 🎄

Christmas was an odd day for me. It simply didn’t feel at all like it was Christmas. We went swimming. In the middle of December. As a girl who has spent every single Christmas in the North, I was having to accept by faith and not by feeling that it was, in fact, December 25th. Ha. But what was cool about that was the reminder that my faith in Jesus is like that; not based on wishful thinking or on what I feel, but based on rock-solid reality.

Thursday I got to play with some of the kiddos in a newly-restored sandbox! It was lots of fun and brought me back to my childhood, haha.

Yay sandboxes!

The family cat had her kittens on the 21st! 😻 But then Screwtape died on Christmas Eve… 😢 Haha. 😜 C’est la vie!

Jesus is up to a lot right now. Comfort zones being shaken and difficult decisions being faced. But as always, He is taking and will take it all and turn it for our good and His glory. And I can’t wait to watch Him work.

As you pray for me and the work being done in Bolivia, please especially pray for staff for the children’s home. It’s pretty much a desperate need at this point. I do believe there are people out there God is preparing for this work; pray He will bring them here quickly!

You can also pray…

  • For endurance and wisdom for the staff that is here; that they would have abundance of grace for everything they have to carry, but wisdom to know how to do it best and do it in a way that doesn’t leave them burnt out.
  • For a good week back to school! Four days of classes this week; we have New Year’s Day off.
  • That the rainy season rain would finally come in earnest! It’s certainly raining a lot more than it was a few months ago, but it’s not quite into rainy season mode yet…

I so love and appreciate all of you. Have a wonderful New Year! May our God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing!

Blessings in Jesus,

Olivia

Update | Week 16

Thursday was definitely the highlight this week! A month after their last day of school, the Bolivian-schedule-following-students that we share a schoolhouse with went on a field trip – and my little class and I got to go along!

Boating at Las Piedras

We went to a small park called Las Piedras. There are rocks (tah-dah!), a lake, cabins, and a herd of water buffalo 🐃 out there. Anyone else out there who grew up with Veggie Tales knows what song was stuck in my head all day…

(And on top of that, the pet cat, Muffin, is very pregnant. Every time I see her, I fight the temptation to start singing, “This is a song for your pregnant kitty. She looks uncomfy; I’m sure I’d be too…” But we might have kittens for Christmas, so that’s exciting!)

Friday we did some Christmas shopping and I got to visit the feria 🎡 going on to celebrate the town of Concepción! Little markets huddled under tarps and some of the classic fair rides in a field. It was a fun place to visit!

The feria

It hardly feels like Christmas can be less than two weeks away. It feels far to warm and Christmas music isn’t being played everywhere you go. Stores and houses aren’t all decked out. But still, I am treasuring another season of Advent, of remembering the first time out Lord kept His promise to come to us and looking forward to His second Advent that is yet to come.

Praying this season is a treasure for you, too!

Art class 🪐

Here are some ways you can pray for me:

  • Pray for enthusiasm and inspiration for this last week of school before the Christmas break. The days before a break are always the hardest! Spanish says it best: it’s like your “ganas” are gone. So pray for extra ganas for us as we finish up 2019!
  • Pray for staff for the orphanage, especially for administration!

May your hearts find rest in our Jesus!

For Him,

Olivia

Waiting | Week 15 Update

It seems like the theme God highlighted for me this week was waiting. This having been the first week of Advent, it seems fitting! 🙂

It was also timely, because I did a lot of waiting on Monday and Tuesday! We went into the city of Santa Cruz to FINALLY continue my immigration paperwork! The blockades had prevented us from moving forward with it for about a month and a half… whiiiiiiiich meant I spent about two weeks as an illegal immigrant. 🤷‍♀️ That’s something I never thought I’d be able to say. 😂

Anyway, doing stuff like that means looooots of waiting. There was also a lot of needing to change paperwork and plenty of chances to practice patience. But I kept thinking about how Jesus never wastes anything. He had a purpose for every second we spent waiting or running around or resisting the temptation to bang our heads against a wall for a while. Making us more like Himself, giving us an opportunity to glorify Him by waiting the way Jesus would.

The plaza in Santa Cruz

In the end, we left Santa Cruz with all my paperwork submitted and the fine for being two weeks late paid. There are a couple steps left before everything is finalized, but I’m pretty much good to stay in Bolivia for two years now!

I got to also escort a couple home who are visiting for the next month to help with the children’s home. That was fun, despite one of the wheels on the bus going flat. They don’t go round and round so smoothly when that happens. 😆 Anyway, having them will be a huge blessing for our under-staffed children’s home!

A very broken bus wheel

That was just the beginning of this week’s blessings. Wednesday night… the electrify got connected!!! We wasted no time turning on every single light in the house and hanging up Christmas lights. My living quarters aren’t wired yet, but it’s amazing to have electricity in the main house!

Hooking up the electricity to the house! They leave the last little job for the homeowners to do.

Saturday was very special. A group from a colony down here visited the children’s home and brought dinner with them! After dinner we sang as they played music for us, and after that they gave a beautiful new pair of shoes to each child! It was like an early Christmas!

I even got to have an early Christmas… one of the guys who came had been trying to sell a guitar. He got to the place where he wanted to give it away, so long story short, I now own a guitar!!! I’d been playing others’ guitars, but I’m so excited to have my own. I named him Benedict. If you want some amusement, go look up what Benedict means. 🎸

Me and Benedict

Then the night ended with me teaching the girls at the home how to do the Virginia Reel. It was SO MUCH FUN. It dawned on me later that I had taught orphans how to dance. Jesus, thank You!

One other fun little note from this week: I’m going to start taking over writing newsletters and updating the Facebook page for the children’s home! If you’re curious, check out Hogar El Refugio Oasis on Facebook. 🙂

Here’s how you can be praying…

  • For the elections coming up in January.
  • For staff for the children’s home – especially a couple who will lay down their lives as house parents for the kiddos.
  • For continued wisdom and inspiration as I continue to teach.
  • That the last couple steps in my immigration paperwork would go well; for favor with the officials we work with and safety as we travel.

May Jesus richly bless you!

In Him,

Olivia

You Might Be an MK When…

She saw the Christmas edition of a coke bottle. There was something she couldn’t figure out…

Why is Moses holding a cell phone and a coke bottle?

Santa… Moses… 🤷‍♀️😂

Grateful | Week 14 Update

In the days leading up to Thanksgiving, it felt like Jesus decided to give me a bunch of extra reasons to be thankful this year.

Monday, I made a new friend! Maria lives in Bolivia and loves Jesus with all her heart. I loved her and felt loved by her from the moment I met her – but I’m finding that isn’t too uncommon when meeting my brothers and sisters in Christ. What made my friendship with her especially encouraging was that she speaks very little English. Guys, I made a friend in Spanish! Haha. 🙂 I had lots of opportunity to speak to her, and be humble and admit when I really didn’t understand what was being said, and be humble and make mistakes when trying to communicate with her. But overall it was very encouraging, because I was able to communicate and connect with her much more easily than I thought I’d be able to! Maria was a gift from God – and the encouragement with my Spanish was an extra on the side. 🙂

The encouragement continued when THE ELECTRICITY TRUCK CAME!!!

The electricity truck that came. It’s blue. 💙

Remember the electricity being prayed for back in September? They told us that they wouldn’t have any more transformers in until the start of the year. When all the blockades went up, we wondered if it would even be that soon. But lo and behold, a shiny new transformer now rests on the Yoder’s property! I’ve never seen people so excited for a transformer before – though I think I had never been so excited for a transformer before myself, haha. This week they will inspect and hook us up officially. LET THERE BE LIGHT! 💡

That same day, the decision was made to finally process my immigration paperwork! With danger from riots and blockades, well, blocking, we hadn’t been able to work on that for almost two months. As I type this I’m waiting for Interpol to open so that I can pick up paperwork saying I’m not a criminal in any other countries. I’m not expecting that report to be too exciting. 😅 Anyway, it is going to feel amazing to finally have that visa!

Thanksgiving, we got the day off of school and celebrated with some of Phil’s family that live in Bolivia. It was a sweet time with amazing and beautiful food.

An American Thanksgiving in Bolivia!

On Friday the staff at the children’s home got the day off, which meant we spent the day there! It was fun to share lunch and dinner with them and spend some extra time with those precious kiddos.

So it’s been a sweet and refreshing week for me. God is faithful, always, but when things are going well and it feels like the heavens are opened to shower down blessings, I’m sure it blesses His heart to see His own delighting in their good Father who gives good gifts. Whatever situation you find yourself in today, I pray God will comfort you with the reminder that He is good, all the time.

Blessings in Jesus,

Olivia

P. S. Here’s how you can be praying this week!

  • That the final parts of my immigration paperwork will process smoothly and quickly! Hopefully the paperwork will be done by Christmas and I’ll had an ID card after New Year’s.
  • For truth and justice to reign in Bolivia; that things would stay calm and peaceful. Elections will happen again in January, so be praying that they will go better this time ‘round!
  • Provision of staff for the children’s home.
  • Continued creativity and wisdom for me as I teach.
  • That the floodgates of Heaven would open up and send down a true rainy season on Bolivia!
