History made in Bolivia today!

We have some exciting news to share today in regards to our work in education! We praise the Lord that after some years of persistence we were able to sign the long awaited for education agreement with the local Government! This agreement will be instrumental in that we can now meet the government standards, and have our students legally registered, while giving us, (or any other Mennonite groups in Bolivia) the freedom to run and administer our own schools. This is historic. We believe it will be the beginning of a new era on the colonies. It is the door to change that many are waiting for. The agreement does not obligate anyone to change but it is a tool that can be used by those that are looking for it.
Praise the LORD for his faithfulness! Thank you Arlie Peters (School Director) for all your hard work. Thank you Klaus Remple from Chihuahua, Thank you Benny Remple, and so many more that have spent many hours and dollars in working towards this day.
Arlie Peters will be sending out and posting some more information and details on this in the near future, but for now… Celebrate with US!
