Our Story

God has placed it on our hearts to work with street kids in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. 


In 2012, Jessica and Lily first ventured to Bolivia knowing very little Spanish. They came back to the States after three months serving at a children’s home outside of La Paz with a passion and excitement for Bolivia that spread to others as they shared what God had done. Shortly after that first trip, Lily returned to spend the next three years serving as a house mom at the children’s home. Jessica returned to Bolivia and attended a Spanish Discipleship school and spent several months out of each of the next three years continuing to serve at the children’s home and invest in the lives of the children there. In 2014, Ellie heard God’s call to serve and bring hope to those in need in Bolivia. Anelise took her first trip to Bolivia in 2015.

Since 2012, God has given each of these women a love for the Bolivian people, language and culture. They are so excited to be able to move to the place their hearts already call home, seeking God’s will to love the vulnerable there. When they visited the city of Santa Cruz in October 2015, they had the chance to meet some children living on the streets and God placed it heavily on their hearts the need to love and serve them in any way possible. Their prayer is that God would transform the lives of the children they will be working with and that the children would find their eternal hope in Christ. Currently, Lily and Ellie are living and doing full time ministry in Santa Cruz.
