Plans, packing and police checks

So… After feeling like we have been in ‘limbo’ for a few months, we are now incredibly excited to say that we have decided to start planning to return to Bolivia in March! Ruth’s dad is still poorly, but he is much more stable than he was in the summer and we are pleased that he is responding well to all his medical treatment. We feel strongly that we are supposed to return to Bolivia to continue our work with the children, youth rehabilitation centre and the drama ministry. God has been working through us in this time of waiting. Our hearts are full with an amazing amount of love and compassion for the young people, and we are preparing ourselves for how He is going to work through and and use us in the future. We say ‘Yes’ to most things… So watch this space!

We are busy booking things and packing boxes, as well as doing all the reams of paperwork and police checks that are necessary. We know the system (although in Bolivia the system can change week to week.. So we are holding our breadth) and we are trying to get everything we need together. 

We have a little wish list of things we’d love to take with us: a play parachute, some reusable nappies, some frisbees and bible story cubes…

We are still a little short of our fundraising target, but are so grateful for God’s provision and faithfulness. Our Stewardship account is the easiest way to support our work if you feel able. We would also like you to be involved and pray for us, both in the next few weeks and also over the whole time we are away. We will be updating this website and also posting pictures of what we are up to.
