You can help impact a family in Bolivia with the Gospel!
Back in 2018, our church planting efforts went global. We partnered with our fellow Synergy Kansas churches and Compassion International to plant Iglesia Emanuel, a church outside Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
In addition to providing funds for the initial construction and launch of the church building, we are able to have an on-going connection with the church by sponsoring kids in the community. When the church first launched, our group of churches collectively sponsored over 200 children. In Spring 2023, we collectively sponsored an additional 100+ kids in the community.
The latest we heard from our Compassion contact is that Iglesia Emanuel is "crushing it for the Gospel". They are going way above and beyond the average Compassion church plant, reaching more and more families with the Good News of Jesus.
By sponsoring a child for $38/month, you get to build a relationship with him/her and give them access to resources to meet their basic needs, as well as access to Compassion's holistic child development center activities—all in Jesus' name.
If you have any questions about the church plant, about Compassion International, or about sponsoring a child, ask Pastor Nathan. He had the opportunity to go to Bolivia in 2018 and see the site of the church building and learn about Compassion's model for church planting and child sponsorship. And the Ehresman family sponsors a child in the community, so he would be happy to talk about that as well.
