Family Project Bolivia
* Maps may indicate region where project will take place, not a specific site location.
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, spend Christmas in Bolivia!
Volunteers will join together in Cochabamba, Bolivia where Maranatha is constructing churches for congregations in need. This group will be working at the Dios Proveerá Church. The congregation was started in 2016 after eleven people were baptized during an evangelistic campaign held during Easter. They started meeting together in a church member’s house. Three months later they had grown to 35 members and by the end of the year they were an organized church with 50 members! The group has been praying since 2017 for the purchase of a plot of land where they would build their new church. In August of 2018 the land was purchased and dedicated. The members are overjoyed to be receiving a church of their own through Maranatha’s assistance.
In addition to the construction, volunteers will also paint the nearby Chimba church which was constructed by Maranatha volunteers earlier this year. The group will also conduct children’s ministry programs and offer free medical and dental clinics for the community. Younger volunteers will have a chance to join the Day Camp during the project to experience different aspects of service and receive 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.
This project also includes an optional excursion from December 30th to January 2nd to La Paz and Lake Titicaca.Scope
