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.

Nadine's Staff Support Fundraiser

Organized by Nadine Breiner-Patterson

in 1981, God changed my life when he reached down and showed his compassion to a wayward girl.  I gave my life to Him that day, saying... Jesus I'm sorry, take my life and do whatever you want with it.. I'll do whatever you want... even be a missionary!  Well it was many years later, 1999 to be exact when God first gave me that opportunity and showed me that this is in fact what He had been preparing me for even before I was born.

Going on my first trip to Guatemala with E3 ( then GMF) in 1999 was life changing for me as God had developed in me a heart for people that are less fortunate, and also had developed a passion for others to know of His love.  I knew after my 1st trip, that THIS is what God had created me for!

In 2004, I came on staff with E3, and it has been a wild, amazing, and interesting ride as God has taken me on the adventure of serving Him.  I have had opportunities to work in the "uttermost" .. places like Sudan, Ethiopia and India as well as many many other interesting countries... Romania, South Africa, Guatemala, Peru, to name a few. The more places that I go, the more I learn.. we are ALL the same.... people in need of the TRUTH... people in need of a SAVIOR.   Now I am working all over Nicaragua working alongside of our E3 Nicaraguan team, teaching the E3 model of church planting as we expand the work to "go and make disciples." 

God has uniquely positioned me to be able to impact lives here in the U.S. by bringing people out of their "comfort" zones and showing them a much bigger picture of God, as well as working to make a difference in another culture, coming alongside of pastors who want to start new churches in communities where there are none, so that "all may hear"

   What an ENORMOUS privilege this has been, but I don't go alone,  I go with YOU, with your support when you join together financially and in prayer as part of my sending team.  I can't go without your help.  TOGETHER we CAN and WILL make a difference.  Please prayerfully consider being a part of this work to expand His kingdom.
