Dear Friends and Supporters:
A letter from René.
Receive the most rich blessings, from our Almighty God, who lead us everyday in the work that we do in Bolivia.
I want to share with you that the first days of May, we travelled to the city of La Paz, to gather in a meeting with Pastors and to show them our work in Bolivia and the material that we hand out.
Taking full advantage during my stay at La Paz, I travelled with my wife and Pastor Reynaldo to the municipality of Copacabana, where we visit more than 23 schools; Likewise, 3 schools crossing the border of Peru. I’m sending you some pictures in chronological order, first the name of the school and then sharing with the students at the classrooms.
But during our trip we found a group of farmers that were waiting to buy gas, this happened on the border of Peru. They were having a meeting so we took advantage of the freedom to share the word of God and to give each one of them the books “El camino de Dios” as you will see in the picture.
While we were travelling to another community, the road ended, so I took a box with material and we started to walk a lot of kilometers and finally arrived at the school in which they were expecting us, both teacher and students.
The Scripture says that we have to use the time wisely when the times are bad; so we think this is the precise time to share with the people, because in Bolivia, there are a lot of issues and the people are not happy with the government for the way it rules, and overall, because it opposes itself to religion, as you will see in a picture.
Last week, my wife Rosdely and I returned to the city of Santa Cruz to continue our work and to send material to the city of Sucre, Potosí, which we did it this week. There’s still some material that has to be sent to the city of Tarija, but the only problem is that the “freight” is too expensive.
One last thing, I would like to give you a testimony that really gave joy to my heart. When we went out to look for a truck to send the material to Sucre and Potosí, I found a driver (called) Hilarión along with his wife. So I asked him if he could take the material in his truck, and he said: Yes, but he asked “what kind of material is that?” and I said that it was the Word of God, so the driver said: “Okay! I will gladly take that material.” Afterwards, we went to the Church where the material is stored. My children helped to load it on the truck, this happened at 6:00 in the evening.
When we finished loading 1000 boxes, I did not have the money with me to pay the driver, so I said to him if He could wait for me in the Church while I went home to pick up the money and the paperwork. It took me about an hour to return to the Church, and when I entered, I was full of joy because He and his wife were on their knees, praying and accepting Jesus as their Lord and Saviour… So I hugged them, because now they are children of God… in the last picture you can see this couple.
It’s really a blessing to serve the Lord Jesus Christ, thanks brothers for your support and prayers…

Note from Gus
Normally the freight would cost $1.00 CAD a box or more. This driver did it for about $0.30 CAD a box.
Thank you to all who support this mission by prayer and finance. God bless.
