On Monday, as the majority of U.S. Serve Team members were in route to Bolivia, the long anticipated week of ministry activities in Santa Cruz began.  God has already begun to answer our prayers for Him to transform lives here in Bolivia.  Our team visited a local school and village where work was being completed on a well refurbishment project.  The village was extremely appreciative for the compassion that was shown their village. Also, each family in the village received a home water filtration system, which will ensure everyone has safe water to drink.  Daniel from Agua Yaku, shown below, explained how to use their new filtration systems.

Also, we hosted a marriage conference featuring, Mike Silva and Dr. Jaime and Gail Miron.  The 25 couples who attended were taught Biblical principles for a healthy marriage.

Serve team members arrived late Monday night and awoke early Tuesday morning to begin scattering all over Santa Cruz and the surrounding regions to share the love of Jesus in word and deed.  The city is teeming with banners, billboards, flyers, radio ads and TV commercials about the Festival this Friday and Saturday night.  People are eagerly anticipating what God is going to do through the proclamation of the Gospel here.
