ボリビア

Almost 120 years after the first missionaries came to Bolivia to reach the unreached people groups of the Andes, the Bolivian church is increasingly engaging in missions. More and more Bolivians are responding to Gods call to make disciples. At the same time there are still a lot of communities within this beautiful and diverse country where the good news of Jesus Christ is hardly known.

Therefore, as a team we work with the local church both in mobilization, disciple-making and in reaching the least reached of Bolivia. Read our stories to know more about our work!

Communities where He is least known

Communities where Christ is least known

Tacana

Living in the Yungas region of Bolivia with a population over 18,000, the Tacana are largely agricultural. Their traditional, animistic beliefs are strong and place great importance on the chamanes or witchdoctors to provide herbal medicinal cures and protect the well-being of the community and the universe. SIM Bolivia is looking for creative and effective ways to address spiritual and physical needs of the Tacana as they work alongside a local couple who have the desire to reach their own people with the Gospel.

Miners of Potosí

Potosí is a city that clings to the side of a beautiful mountain, but many have died inside its mines. The miners acknowledge it to be the devil’s domain and daily make sacrifices to his image. Who can break down barriers to reach this close-knit, tough group of miners? Who will come to know the story of abundant life in Jesus Christ? Whose feet will be beautiful on that mountain, bringing the good news?
