We did not buy tickets last night to leave Bolivia. Why?
1. A work opportunity came to me here teaching English part time that would allow me to pay a large portion of the loan payments. This would allow me to remain volunteering here and teaching English can also be used as a ministry. I had been looking through the classified ads in the newspapers looking at jobs that were available here, but had not considered teaching English.
2. Brothers and Sisters in the church offered to help with the rest of the bills for us to stay. I am amazed at the generosity of the people who are willing to help.
3. We have peace with making plans to stay here. We did not have peace with making plans to leave here.
4. We are convicted that the time that we have remaining to be free to do mission work is quickly heading to a close, and that we need to tell people the truth about what is going on.
Jesus is coming soon.
Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28 NLT
