Transformation in Villa Margarita

This is my third time in Bolivia. If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would spend my vacation time each year to visit people in need and work with the less fortunate, I'm not sure I would have believed you. But God placed Bolivia on my heart from the very first trip I made, one of the ways He did that was  through working with the women of the community.



I have been blessed to witness the progress made in the village of Villa Margarita.  My first trip, God blessed me with the opportunity to teach the women community leaders about Nutrition. God used that experience to change my heart for those in poverty and show me where there was poverty in my life as well. FH was just starting in the community and the Cascada group of women leaders were few and needed education as basic as understanding the food groups.

Three years later, my heart filled with love, grace and humility as I witnessed the same community with many more members of the Cascada group open their Nutrition Center. Though the building was awesome, it was the pride each women had in their work. The ownership, responsibility and confidence each woman had filled my heart. The women have learned and are bringing the good information to others. All the while, living and learning biblical principles. Their children are learning from their mothers and will be leaders one day too! 

I praise God that He brought me here to be a part of the opening of the nutrition center. It will be a day that will forever remain in my heart.

Luke Feldner and Vince Tidwell are introducing an adult fellowship group focused on studying and discussing Systematic Theology. The planned curriculum includes ten introductory lessons on defining and categorizing theology, Christian epistemology, defining "essentials" vs "non-essentials", and the historical sources and norms of Christian belief. The goal of this new small group will be to hold each other accountable for obeying Christ's command to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Contact the office at mccn14@gmail.com if you are interested.
