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, spend Christmas in Bolivia!

Volunteers will join together in Cochabamba, Bolivia where Maranatha is constructing churches for congregations in need. In addition to the construction, volunteers will also join together for outreach programs such as children’s ministry programs. If we have medical professionals with us, we would like to provide medical outreach as well. 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.
