Overview

Maranatha offers at least two family projects each year that provide service opportunities for every member of your family, both young and old. This year, join Maranatha in the country of Bolivia!

High in the Andes mountains, volunteers will join together in Cochabamba to experience service together as a family. Volunteers will work to paint a new church that will be completed by Maranatha volunteers in February as well as complete several painting projects at the Adventist University of Bolivia including painting dormitory rooms, staff housing, and classrooms. There may be a few small construction projects as well which are still to be identified. In addition to the painting, volunteers will also join together for outreach programs such as children’s ministry programs. Younger volunteers will have a chance to join the Day Camp during the project to experience different aspects of service and share insights into daily life in Bolivia!

While this project is geared towards families and preference is given to family groups, individuals are also welcome on this project.
