BOLIVIA

From the high plateaus of the southwest to the tropical lowlands in the east and north, Bolivia is a beautiful land with a variety of climate extremes. Silver, tin, and cotton are mainstays and the country has relied heavily on its natural gas deposits for economic drive.

Evangelicals in Bolivia have doubled in percentage since 1990, increasing 43-fold since 1960. The Church has seen unprecedented growth among the Aymara and Quechua people, who date back to pre-Incan times.  Still, there is much work to be done.

e3 Partners is working to ensure that a thriving local church exists in every community throughout Bolivia. We are equipping existing believers and training local pastors to identify unreached communities and share the Gospel effectively. As people come to faith in Christ, we are establishing small groups that help them take the next steps in their spiritual growth and serve as the seeds for new churches.

Our Story:  Adventuring with God!


Most of you know that I (Jan) have been on staff with e3 Partners for over 20 years now and was previously widowed for 26 years.  In 2011 God brought an amazing man (Chuy Martinez) into my life.  We married in 2012. A year later Chuy turned in his chef hat and knife in exchange for a call to full-time missions.  His heart was drawn to use his talents for the Lord.  Actually, he did hold on to that knife, and since we both love cooking, we often are asked to do events for e3 Partners, our church, marriages and even funerals.

We are currently working together with a focus on Community Transformation (CT).  CT is training the local churches to engage their communities, recognize their needs and develop strategies to address and provide solutions.  This results in giving hope to the local people, improving their lives and connecting the church to their community.

At this time we have been overjoyed working with local refugees here in Arizona.  We are so grateful and very blessed by having a wonderful team of ministry supporters who choose to invest in expanding God's Kingdom by partnering with us in our lives and ministry.  We could not do the work of the Lord without your partnership.  We thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts! 

Love,
Chuy & Jan
