Paul & Lucinda's Wedding Anniversary - December 16
Paul and Lucinda first arrived in Bolivia in January, 1984. They were involved in various ministries including children's clubs, itinerant evangelism, leadership training conferences in rural areas, teaching at a Quechua Bible Institute, and planting a church in a Quechua area on the outskirts of the city of Sucre. In 1993 Paul and Lucinda, in conjunction with SIM and other missionaries of New Tribes Mission, started a project to establish a short wave radio station for outreach to the 2.2 million mono-lingual Quechuas of Bolivia. As a result of the needs of this project they moved to the central city of Cochabamba. The Quechua radio station, Mosoj Chaski (New Messenger), has now been broadcasting the Good News of Jesus Christ for 15 years throughout the country of Bolivia. As well as Paul's continuing work at the radio station, they are involved in Bible teaching and evangelism. Lucinda teaches in an outreach to care for the children of prostitutes and aids a couple of projects that do outreach to children-at-risk.
