Ehlers Family Letter - Jan 2011

El Jordán
Bolivia has a poverty rate of over 60%, and
the pain is difficult to imagine. Young children
leave home and live on the streets, mothers

fathers frequently abandon their families. In
their desperation, some turn to drugs, crime

El Jordán serves these very people by offering

which men and women can take and sell their
products at craft sales. Through helping
people meet tangible needs, El Jordán is able
to share the gospel with those who come to
the centre.

Our family is excited to be part of
this ministry. We are planning to
leave for Santa Cruz, Bolivia for a
one year term in spring 2011. We

Please Pray…

leave would go smoothly and
stay on track.
• That Miles would be excited
and peaceful about moving.
• For El Jordan to recover
money that was stolen from a
building project.

Thank you to everyone who has
committed to praying for us and the
ministry at El Jordán. We will send
regular updates and prayer/praise
requests by email or mail.

We were appointed by Avant on January 21st,
along with thirteen others. Over the next
couple of years we’ll be spreading out across
the world to spread the gospel and care for
people in some of the most unreached parts
of the world.
Avant’s mission is to “glorify God by helping
others enjoy His presence through planting
and developing new churches in the
unreached areas of the world.” They focus on
going where less than 2% of the population
are considered to be evangelical Christians.
We are excited to be part of this organization
and we’re grateful for the support and
training we have received.

Thank you to everyone who pledged
financial support over the past couple
of months, and for those who
supported us through our coffee
fundraiser before Christmas. We
raised more than enough to pay for
Orientation. We’re excited that our
account is now open with Avant, and
cheques may be sent to:
