MISSION & OUTREACH

Featured Missionary

Sarah SnappSarah Snapp
SIM - USA
Bolivia

Sarah lives in Cochabamba, Bolivia, where she teaches an elementary class in the Carachipampa Christian School (CCS), an international mission school with nearly 200 students. The school is both a support to the mission community and an outreach to Bolivian society. It educates children of missionaries, children from local Bolivian families, and international students; over twenty nationalities are represented among the students and staff. All of the teachers and staff are evangelical Christians and the Bible provides the foundation for all classes. The school is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and it continues to improve its curriculum, teaching standards, buildings and administration to maintain ACSI accreditation.

In addition to teaching in the school, Sarah has trained teachers in LIBOPEN (Child Evangelism Fellowship). Another ministry Sarah has enjoyed is a clown and puppet group, Soldados de Cristo en Acción. She has participated in this ministry when she has free time from school, usually on weekends. She has taught clowning skills and performed with the group at churches, kids' clubs, birthday parties, local government functions, and camps.

Prayer Requests:
1. For Sarah and her students at Carachipampa Christian School.
2. For children who are not believers to come to saving faith in Christ and believers to grow in their faith.
3. For cultural understanding in working with both Bolivians and international staff and students in the school.
