While in Cochabamba, we ministered several times a day to both pastors and lay leaders. This trip was a particular blessing because of the seed that we had indirectly sown there years before. In 2003, we conducted a mission’s conference for a church in Brazil. During that conference, the Spirit of God moved upon me to challenge the local church to take action toward fulfilling the great commission. The church already had a passion for the nations, which was evident by the way that they prayed for the nations. However, we encouraged them that God wanted to use each member of the body of Christ to fulfill God's mission’s mandate. A year later, we returned to hold a follow up conference for missions and we heard the wonderful testimonies of the churches missions outreach to Bolivia. When I arrived in Bolivia, I had no idea that the team had ministered in Cochabamba. Many there told me about the great blessing that the Brazil team had been. We believe in a small way we had a part of that initial seed that was sown there. We are looking forward to seeing a great harvest on the seed that was sown years ago. During our time there, we were able to discuss with the leadership about how we might collaborate in the future to assist pastors with training by developing a network to connect like-minded ministries throughout South America to do mission minitry as well as plant churches.
