Missionary training and container release in Bolivia

Hospitals of Hope in Bolivia has been given the opportunity to participate in the Bolivian church's missionary endeavors, helping enable Bolivian missionaries to carry the gospel to other parts of the world. The above picture shows Hospitals of Hope volunteers giving basic medical training to Bolivians training to go as missionaries to places such as the Middle East, enabling them to care physically as well as spiritually for those they serve.

In other news, we are pleased to announce that the container we shipped to Bolivia at the end of March has already arrived, been released from customs, and been unloaded. The last container that we shipped to Bolivia was stuck in customs for a year and a half, so we're thrilled that this shipment went so smoothly. USAID worked with us on this shipment, allowing us to clear customs quickly and easily, which means that the supplies and equipment we sent can be put to immediate use. Thank you all for your prayers for the quick release of our container.
