My early elementary Sunday School class had the privilege of receiving Prayerline for Kids as a gift from Janet Hardy (donor). In the “Change for Making a Change” program, the children, on their own, all five children have collected $10 in pennies and chosen to support the Thanksgiving Dinner in Peru! God bless you.

Bolivia is a landlocked Andean state in South America. The government is actively encouraging traditional pagan religions and farming coca for the drug trade is swiftly taking over honest agriculture. Bolivia was one of the first South American countries to open an evangelical university.
Christian Aid supports indigenous ministries who use the waterways of Bolivia to reach isolated villages to spread the Good News. Missionaries in this country also run schools for needy children where their material and spiritual needs are met and minister to the tribal people of the Andes Mountains focusing on the Quechua and the Aymara. Many among the Quechua and Aymara cling to their traditional tribal religions such as spilling alcohol on the ground to appease the spirits.
