Thank you so much for standing with us in prayer while we were in Bolivia! We had a wonderful time getting to know the missionary candidates who are preparing for service. They learned about literacy’s importance in church planting and discipleship and practiced writing primers and teaching them.
After class was done we traveled to the other side of Bolivia to the Simba work to encourage the team with their literacy ministry. (For pictures of our harrowing trip along winding mountain roads, click on the Photos tab and then on: our last trip). God is doing exciting things in the Simba church. But with very low literacy levels among the Simba people, there are only a handful of people who can read and use the Simba Bible translation and study materials. Even many of the church leaders struggle to read the Word with comprehension. Pray that the team will have wisdom as they move forward with their literacy strategy – that every Simba person will have the opportunity to read God’s Word in their own language!
