The Shoe Shiners of La Paz

Kayuparu means 'at his feet', and is a ministry that is reaching out to the masked shoe shiners of La Paz. The shiners hide their faces behind masks because there is a strong sense of shame associated with being a shiner. In the eyes of society, they are invisible and insignificant. A lot of them are students who need the work to pay for their tuition, others are facing economic hardships. Our desire is for them to realise they are not insignificant and invisible in the eyes of God, and that they find hope in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Join our team to reach out to the shoe shiners and their families!

Bolivia’s Youth and Children

Childhood is when people usually choose to become Jesus followers. It is a time of formation and decision-making, yet a time of vulnerability for potential abuse and harm. Minors need safe spaces and safe people to nurture and guide them in life. More than 50 per cent of Bolivia’s population is aged 25 or younger, so ministry focused toward children and youth presents a tremendous opportunity to develop life-long disciples of Christ. The Bolivian church has asked SIM for workers to partner with them to build leadership capacity in children and youth ministries. SIM is seeking workers to be involved in Bible clubs, puppet ministry, camping, sports, after-school tutoring, youth mentoring, big brother/big sister relationships, Young Life, university ministry, church or community-based youth groups.

Sports Friends Bolivia

Sport is a great way to make connections with active youth. Since more than 50 per cent of the Bolivian population is under 25, sport provides a great opportunity to build relationships with them. We are equipping local churches and church planters to use sport to make disciples of Jesus Christ among young people, their families, and their communities where Christ is least known. We’d love you to join our team! A passion for sport is a plus, but what we need more than anything are people with a heart for children and for equipping the church for mission.

Working with the Deaf and Hearing Impaired

Do you know sign language and have a heart for the deaf and hearing impaired? One of the largest unreached people groups in Bolivia is the deaf and hearing impaired community. Through our medical clinic in the city of Potosí, we have access to this community every day, but we long to be able to share the love of Jesus with them through teaching sign language, organising support groups, and caring for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Our prayer is that the deaf and hearing impaired and their families in Potosí would come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, learn Bolivian Sign Language, and have access to resources that will help them to flourish in all aspects of life. If you know sign language, would like to work with the deaf and hearing impaired, are a social worker, a psychologist, a counsellor, an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist or a plastic surgeon, we would love to have you join our team!

Mining Families

In Potosí, a city which stands at 13,000 feet above sea level, mining is one of the major industries. Those who go down the mines enter one of the darkest places on earth, physically and spiritually. We want to let them know that even where the sun cannot reach them, they are still within the reach of God’s love. Our desire is that they may know the power of the gospel and that their lives would be filled with the hope of the Lord of heaven and earth. There are many opportunities to reach out to this community! If you are a pastor, a social worker, a teacher, a medic, a sports coach, a safety officer, an engineer, a miner, an emergency medical technician, a paramedic, a fire fighter, a sustainability/community development specialist, or someone who has a heart for children, consider joining our team to let God’s light shine!

Medical Health Care

Potosí, a mining town more than 13,000 feet metres above sea level, is home to many vulnerable and at-risk families who face a variety of medical challenges. A lack of affordable, quality health care further complicates the high medical morbidity and mortality rates. Our team interacts with these families by providing medical care in an outpatient clinic, called Allinta Ruwana, and also works with local churches and their ministries. Our passion is to point people to the Great Physician as we serve as his hands and feet. We would love to invite you to join our team if you are a physician, nurse, physical therapist, counsellor or social worker who has a heart for sharing the hope of Christ with the most vulnerable. If this sounds like you, or something you might be interested in, please prayerfully consider joining us!

Training Bolivian Church Planters

God is raising Bolivians with a clarion call for church planting and mission in Bolivia’s capital city, La Paz However, it is a challenge for them to find training and support from their local churches. The SIM La Paz team longs for God to establish a coalition of Bolivian churches which is biblically and financially committed to planting gospel-focused, disciple-making, missional churches. For this reason, we are providing training for church planters and their wives, as well as training for churches to ignite missional, life-on-life discipleship movements in their congregations so they can send out mature and equipped believers who are passionate about declaring and demonstrating the gospel, whether across the street or around the world. The SIM La Paz team needs discipleship and church-planting trainers and a person to mobilise churches and individual believers toward missional living and giving.

The Quechua in Peri-Urban Areas

Ministry to the Quechua once required travel to distant and difficult-to-access villages. But the urban population has exploded as rural Quechuas have moved to cities for the opportunities afforded there. Churches in peri-urban areas where SIM workers minister need Bible teaching and help to reach their Quechua neighbours of all generations for Jesus Christ. Ministry opportunities include oral Bible teaching, social work to equip local churches to minister to challenges in their churches and communities and Sports Friends (See our Sports Friends entry for details). Community kids’ clubs, church-based children’s ministry, friendship evangelism, discipleship, mentoring and tutoring youth are ministry options. Are you compassionate, adventurous and can see yourself sharing your faith in Christ-in-life relationships? Join us in Bolivia!

We long for all the children and young people in Benin to have a personal encounter with Jesus. Given at least 40 per cent of the population is under 14, this is no easy task!
