Missionaries to Bolivia

 IMG_4888

Hello to all our friends and family! We hope your 2015 is shaping up great. Stephen and Meredith had a 2014 full of getting married, Stephen starting back to college and Meredith finishing. God has lead us to many exciting opportunities over the past few years and we are excited to share with you that we are heading back to Bolivia in August!

Meredith has always had a heart for missions and Stephen a love for worship. During our first trip to Bolivia with Compassion International we met Danny and Vanessa Beams, long-term missionaries in Santa Cruz, who invited us back to intern with them and their ministries. Since then we have been praying and discussing this possibility and have decided to move to Santa Cruz, Bolivia for four months (August 2015-December 2015).

The Beams have two ministries we will primarily be working with. Stephen will be working with Danny Beams at Agua Yaku, a ministry that works to provide clean water for the people of Bolivia. Stephen will be travelling, well-drilling, and helping with fundraising for the ministry. In addition, Stephen has been asked to play on the worship band in the local church, Iglesia Kairos.

Meredith will be working with Vanessa with the Ruth and Naomi Transition Home (Casa de transicion de Ruth y Noemi). The home helps women and children who are at-risk. Meredith will be helping with the day-care center for the children, teaching English, and working with some other initiatives, like Compassion International. Meredith also hopes to connect with the growing Chinese population in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

We appreciate the support of our family and friends as we have begun our lives together on mission for Jesus. We hope you will pray for the ministries in Bolivia as well as for the Beams and for us as we begin our journey on the mission field.

Our estimated cost for our time in Bolivia is $9200, including our airfare and supporting the ministries and work we hope to do there. Please prayfully consider supporting us financially.

Donations can be made through our home church, Crossroads Christian Church by writing a check. Checks can be mailed to our home address 2020 Armstrong Mill Rd. Apt 1733, Lexington, KY 40515. We will take all of the checks we receive to the church personally!

We ask that you would be praying for the people of Bolivia and that we would be equipped to bless them and show them Jesus. Please pray for our preparations as we get ready to do God’s work in Bolivia!

Thank you for all of your support!
