Blessings in Bolivia
Santa Cruz Christian Learning Centre is a school which provides a quality education in English for local and missionary children in Bolivia. Lora recently completed an 18 month term teaching at the school.
The school has grown from 34 students in 1977 to a present enrollment of more than 230. SCCLC serves Bolivia and the nations by providing a quality comprehensive multilingual Christian education that meets and exceeds national and international academic standards and prepares students spiritually, academically and socially to transform their world.
This adventure put me in situations that have challenged my physical and mental ability but have also given me a sense of freedom that I have never had before. It has taken me on a journey of self-discovery.
The most rewarding element of working at a Christian school is being able to freely pray with the children. Every morning we had our greeting time where the children sat in a circle on the carpet, and I then took prayer requests. The prayer requests were very varied and some were surprising, but I was amazed at how well the children prayed! I wrote their prayer requests next to their name, and asked them the following week if their prayer had been answered. Most of the time they had been!
Although it was very challenging at times being away from home and out of my comfort zone, I was blessed with the friendships I had formed and the children I met blessed my heart.
