Greetings from Bolivia. We have had an excellent week installing water pumps and recording instructional videos in Vacas, a rural area near Cochabamba. The instructional videos will be placed on YouTube for people in Bolivia and around the world to help them build hand-operated pumps. The team has also participated in church services, provided Bibles, and encouraged members of three churches. We have greatly enjoyed learning about Bolivian culture and meeting with members of the communities, pastors, and fellow believers in Christ.
It is amazing to see how God has used the engineering talents of SIM missionaries and others to provide water to numerous rural families but also how God has used the missionaries to provide spiritual water to the people. The churches in the Vacas area are thriving, God is clearly working in the hearts of the people, and they have a strong hunger for God’s Word.
