Serving Jesus Christ Along Bolivia's Waterways

September 19, 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. Over 60% of Bolivia's population come from various indigenous tribal groups, many of whom have mixed Roman Catholicism with their traditional animist religions. It is against this backdrop that SJC engages in open air meetings and door-to-door evangelism in the most remote, impoverished areas of Bolivia.

In the last month, SJC was able to organize a youth retreat in Trinidad and engage in several missions trips using their boat, which serves as a floating clinic, providing dental care and medical attention for several impoverished river communities. In addition, God has blessed the afterschool project of SJC, called Proyecto Refugio, where food and spiritual nourishment are provided to needy children. This ministry gives afterschool education to 60 children.
