We have been invited to partner with Vineyard churches in Bolivia and Ecuador for the summer. We are heading out mid-June, and will get back just in time for Leo to do a training weekend in Atlanta in mid-August. Whew!
Watch the following video for a little more info:
We are so excited!
But, like we said in the video, we need a LOT of help. We need $11,000 total for the whole trip. That includes plane tickets (Elias will only be able to fly free for the first portion), Visas for Elias and I for Bolivia, costs in-country, costs for supplies and materials, covering things here while we are gone, etc.
If you can donate, please give at First Love International.
We will be training up leaders in Cochabamba. The first week, we’ll be doing worship and kids ministry workshops for the church there, and then the following weeks we will be helping with a conference for Bolivian La Viña pastors and leaders.
From there, we will head to Pallatanga, Ecuador. You can find out more about the ministry Here.
In Ecuador, we will be doing nightly classes about worship, creating space for them to really connect with the Lord and express their hearts back to him.
A trip like this also needs a LOT of prayer.
These next few weeks, please pray specifically for the following:
Space and time for us to get the training materials together.
Leo has another surgery on his arm coming up in a few weeks. Please pray for complete restoration.
Finding someone (or a few different folk) to dog sit/ house sit for us.
Time to finish our EP
Booking the space for the fundraising concert
Health (we’ve all been knocked down by a cold the last week).
Thanks so much for following along with us! 🙂
