Episode 6: When You Were Young

Sam and Napoleon in front of one of the road-blocks.
This is a prayer meeting in our neighbourhood that arose during the strikes.

These roads are usually bumper-to-bumper traffic all day
long. At least I could do something useful during the
strike like grow a beard!
Some graffiti on the road by a supermarket.

Hauling luggage between friends' houses became a normal part of life.
10th November: Evo Morales resigns as president.
12th November: Jeanine AƱez, Bible in hand, assumes the interim presidency.
Today: Tensions remain high in many areas of the country.

Here are a couple of useful articles on the fall of Evo Morales:

Prayer Points
  • Give thanks that some semblance of justice has been done with the president's resignation.
  • Give thanks that the Lord was proclaimed and honoured as God throughout the period of the protests.
  • Give thanks that we were able to return to our home and re-establish something of a normal routine.
  • Pray for a peaceful resolution to the current tensions in the country.
  • Pray for Amanda's one-on-one training with Suzanne Potter, Latin Link's short-term coordinator. 
  • Pray for our time with new short-term volunteer Andy Robertson.
¡Que Dios les bendiga!
