Thank you so much for your interest in our Bolivia Mission Trip. It is such a popular trip that all of our volunteer slots for speakers, VBS, construction and support staff are now filled. However, we do still need 3-5 more medical personnel for clinics. If you are a medical professional, we invite you to register. If not, we encourage you to consider the Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico trips in 2022! We look forward to seeing you.
Bolivia is a landlocked country in South America bordering several countries including Brazil, Peru, and Chile. It is one of the poorest countries of the continent with a very low GDP average. The people there are very warm and friendly. It is a country of great need, and God will use you to make a huge difference in Cochabamba. The Bolivian Union and Central Bolivian Conference office is there. There is a large TV & Radio Studio that broadcasts across the country, yielding hundreds of baptisms every year. The area is very ripe for a harvest. Medical work will be very effective in this area, and we will run a clinic in the mornings where professionals can consult with patients. At night, we will conduct evangelism and children’s programming. People of all ages and skill levels are needed.
