A few weeks ago we received a gift from a lady that was very different from the love offerings we usually receive. After hearing our stories about Bolivia and learning of the conditions there, this dear lady was burdened to help. So, she decided to use her talent to create something that would be a blessing. She made a beautiful quilt that is not only full of beautiful colors but is also filled with scenes depicting different stories and scriptures from the Bible.

Acts 1:8 tells us to be witnesses, not just here in our local area of North Carolina but also to the country of the United States and around the world to the uttermost parts of the earth. Then in Psalm 2:8 God says, “Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.”
We are asking God for the country of Bolivia! Our prayer has been for God to work in hearts and lives and that many Bolivian people would come to know the Lord Jesus Christ. From church to church, many people ask us about our journey. They want to know about the place we are going, the people we are reaching and the things we experience.
