LORI NOSEWORTHY’S MISSION TRIP TO BOLIVIA - "It was a great privilege to travel to Bolivia with the Canadian Baptist Ministries' Praxis program last month. Our team of four Canadian students and a professor, along with four Bolivian students, spent time with the CBM staff in Bolivia. We studied the environment from the perspective of Creation Care, We also learned some of what our Global Field Staff do in Bolivia, and how they support the Bolivian Baptists in integral mission. We visited schools and after-school programs for children in difficult family circumstances and saw some projects that support vulnerable families in both rural and urban settings. We worshiped in both large and small churches and at the Baptist Seminary in Cochabamba. I was encouraged to see God's work in a different cultural context and to learn that we are more alike than we are different."
