This is Vanessa writing. I am very new to the whole "tech era" I mean I know it has been around for a while but I just couldn't make very good friends with it. On our last trip to the U.S I realized that we have now lived here in Bolivia longer than in the U.,S. So this is an effort to keep connected and to help you, dear prayer worrior, sponsor, friend, neighbor, grandparent, parent, brother, sister, niece, nephew, library friend, teacher, student and kid friend to see and share what our life and ministry is like here in the poorest country of South America. I will be sharing stories of things I see as well as random facts of our life here.
I am telling you this story because Wilson and I need you to pray. Pray for him, for his family, for his future, for angels to protect him and for radical change in his life. It is very difficult to accept the fact that I can't do anything else at this point. I don't understand! During my time here I have seen many other children like Wilson, and I wonder if they are telling the truth but even if they are not; their circumstances are very very far from ideal. Children here are very often seen as worthless little slaves. I know there is pain everywhere, but here it is just something that we see everyday. Poverty, abuse and corruption have a hold on this country. I pray that God will pour his Spirit here, heal lives, encourage us, I pray He will find Wilson's mom and talk to her, help her take care of her children and I pray that He will come back...tomorrow.
