Bruce and Miriam are using the Word of God to effect positive change in the community of La Paz. They are working toward change in family life, marriage, parent child relationships, education, cleanliness, and a protestant work ethic. This is being accomplished through 4 avenues: 1. A leadership training Center which brings community leaders through a chronological bible course, equipping them for missions. 2. Working with both the Aymara and Quechua rural people groups, training the local leaders to bring change within their community. 3. City wide mission conferences, challenging and equipping local lay people to bring the gospel to the world. 4. Establishing a Christian English speaking school this provides a Christian education for the future leaders of the country.

*Wisdom for Bruce as he pastors the church in La Paz in Raul’s absence.
*For Pastor Gregorio Quispe as he leads the Aymara speaking church in Huarina.

*A better rent situation for our congregation in La Paz. Rent has been raised beyond our budget. Currently we rent the assembly hall of a small university and office space for our projects and Sunday school. Moving would be a big setback. We are negotiating reducing our office space with the owners. There really are no other adequate facilities in the area.
