Save our Church!

Restore the Grandeur!

Restore the Grandeur!

Many of you will remember, I used to chair the Board of Partners for Sacred Places in Philadelphia. We promoted the restoration of sacred structures (churches, synagogues, etc.) that anchored community-serving ministries. Well, here I am promoting a Kickstarter campaign for our own church here in Mocomoco. Can you help? Can you pass this on to friends? Thanks in advance.

Days of Celebration: August 2-6

Flags waving!

Flags waving!

August 2nd is “Day of the Indigenous Person/Campesino” in Bolivia, and is the beginning of days of celebration, culminating in the national holiday on August 6th. Here’s the first installment! Always, the schools put together a series of special celebrations. We went down to Ingas to celebrate with the folks who mean so much to us. We’ve been working hard, in close collaboration with the local schools, and we feel such a part of the community. It was hot and dusty. It was long! It was a lovely day, full of color and joy! Here’s a sampling….

Fue un día precioso, lleno de color y alegría!
