玻利维亚

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 God's call to make disciples. At the same time there are several communities within this beautiful, diverse country where the good news of Jesus Christ is not known.

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

Communities where Christ is least known

Tacana and Tipnis areas

Many villages of the Tacana people and the Tipnis region have no gospel witness. SIM mission workers support local pastors so that their churches will reach other communities with the gospel.

Flying in small aircraft is often the only reliable way to reach villages that are frequently isolated by flood plains or unpredictable river travel. Traditional beliefs are another barrier to gospel outreach.

SIM Bolivia is looking for effective ways to address the groups’ spiritual and physical needs. An SIM family is pastoring Tacana pastors. Another SIM family will join a mission partner to provide air transport and medical support, reaching remote communities with the gospel.

Miners of Potosí

Ask a Potosi miner, “Who rules inside the mine?” and he will tell you, “El Tio.”

While miners may believe in God, they also believe that the pernicious Tio rules supreme underground, either allowing them to find minerals or keeping minerals hidden. He can protect or harm. They trust that devotion to the Tio, shown through sacrifices and offerings, will placate him, providing success and safety. Even so, miners die or are wounded in the dangerous conditions within the mines.

SIM is reaching out to miners and others in Potosi through a medical clinic, occupational therapy, English classes and community involvement, in order to begin to overcome barriers and resistance to the gospel. SIM missionaries also reach out to Potosi’s professional class, which lacks an appropriate witness.

Prayers

1

Pray for workers to join us in reaching those without Christ.

2

4

5

Pray for partner ministries including COPROMEC that produces Sunday school material, Mosoj Chaski radio that reaches Quechuas and Camp Kewiña.

6

Pray for the government of Bolivia. Pray for peace, joy, and justice in this country.

7

Pray to the Lord to send more workers into this field.
