First of all, the Spies gave us this box from Bolivia as a thank you and it is just beautiful.
Secondly, I wanted to mention that the reason the Spies were on their way home is because they will be there to fund raise for the association that they founded with Bolivians in 2009. The name of it is Roots Association and its mission is to help support national Bolivian missionaries, pastors and seminary students. Something that we learned and that the Spies were inspired by is that there are a lot of amazing Bolivian pastors and missionaries that are doing a great job in their ministries and making a small amount of resources go a long way. Roots comes along side these individuals and ministries.
Here is the vision and mission of Roots from their website...
Vision: We dream to see strong Bolivian Christian ministries forming authentic disciples who reflect the character and priorities of Christ.
Mission: To facilitate training, provide resources and mobilize funding so that Bolivian Christian ministries are empowered to fulfill their own God given visions.
This is an amazing ministry so check out their website!
