Serving God in a Land of Contrasts
The Bolivia cross-cultural experience will take you to the heart of South America to a country that is both challenged by poverty and blessed with natural resources and breathtaking beauty.
In Bolivia you will worship in local churches and learn how Bolivians are working to address the needs in their communities through serving those around them. You will spend time volunteering in a ministry supported by Mennonite Central Committee, such as a women’s center, an orphanage or childcare center. A homestay with a Bolivian family will give you an up close and personal experience with Bolivian life and culture. You will spend time in the Andes mountains (13,000 ft.) in the capital city of La Paz and travel to beautiful Lake Titicaca, where Incan and pre-Incan cultures still thrive relatively untouched by Western influence and modernization.
