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.
Recent Prayerline Posts
BOLIVIA. Church congregations are growing under the leadership of Serving Jesus Christ ministry workers. They are reaching people in isolated riverside communities accessible only by boat. Pray for these dedicated missionaries and for the fruit of their labor. They need at least 300 Bibles ($8 each) and hundreds of evangelistic tracts ($50 per 100 tracts), as they continue to evangelize remote villages.
BOLIVIA. Quechua Evangelistic Outreach missionaries serving in the Andes Mountains among their own people are limited to holding evangelistic meetings, Bible studies and discipleship classes during the daylight hours since no electricity is available in many places. Four congregations need solar panel equipment ($800 each). Pray that God will meet this need of the missionaries serving in one of the poorest countries of South America.

October 10, 2013 - The silver rush made this Bolivian city one of the largest and richest in the world during its heyday. Now Quechua tribes in the mountains are receiving a far greater treasure—the glorious riches found in Jesus Christ. Read more.
September 21, 2012 -Thanks to the Lord's provision, the Bolivian mission group Serving Jesus Christ is continuing its vital ministry to the rural river villages of their country.
April 13, 2012 -Francisco Mendez, a native missionary with Associated Ministries of Argentina, reported that “There are 40 Wichi communities in Bolivia that need to be evangelized.” He learned about this when a village chief received Christ and told Francisco that there were many Wichi and Guaraní people in Bolivia that have never heard the gospel.

Dr. Bob Finley, founder of Christian Aid Mission, visited South America in 1977 and then met leaders of thriving evangelical churches. Though many of them were well able to reach their own communities, they appreciated help in caring for homeless children, educating the poor, and reaching unreached tribes.
