The New Year in South America!

Thursday's the day I head back to Bolivia. It seems that things are going to be much more complicated this time...I guess the longer you're gone the less familiarity you have with how things are going--both with the missionaries and with the government.
I'm not one to stress out, or worry about this type of things, but knowing that I am helpless to do anything about most of these factors does make me a little...nervous! I'm giving you a heads up so you can (PLEASE) pray for us!!
  • The gas prices rose yesterday by 72%! This could cause strikes, very expensive transportation for us, or the inability to get transportation.
  • We have to get a different visa and we can't get it until the airport (as if 24 hours of travel wasn't overwhelming enough--without not knowing if you'll even be allowed into the country once you arrive!) and it will cost $135.
  • Pray that we will catch all of our flights and not get caught up in all the new airport policies.
  • While in the city for a very brief stay we hope to do many things. Visit people, the cancha, help out with a few ministries there...You can pray for time management there too, so we can get everything done that we need to.
  • Potosi always provides many unexpected situations. We just need to be back in time to catch our flight home. That's my biggest concern for that....
  • Pray that we will stay safe and healthy.
  • Pray for unity among the team. I will introduce them on this page.
  • Pray for the families and children that we will be meeting, serving and sharing our beautiful message of hope with.
  • Pray that God's name will be glorified above all.
Thank you sooo much!! I'll try to get on here to update with stories and pictures. I'm sure I'll have LOTS to share!!

Wishing you God's best this holiday season, He is good!
