Miles meeting the street cat we took in.

Is El Jordán

In the three weeks we have been here, we
have experienced many examples of the
essence of El Jordán’s ministry.
On our first Saturday, we helped out at a
garage sale where El Jordán was selling the
crafts that are made there. The people that
make the items keep the full profit of sale.
We witnessed God’s love demonstrated to a
family who had lost their baby in the womb at
19 weeks. One of our volunteers went to the
hospital to be with the mother, and eventually
brought the baby back to El Jordán to place
him in the coffin that Sam helped build before
taking him to the family’s home for burial.
Today, we went along to visit the parents and
their five children.

Fruit stand near our place.

Sam fixed up one of their bicycles, while Jess
and Corina met with the mother and children.
The father, whose heart has been hard
towards God and El Jordán, invited Sam over
again, offering to teach him auto body repair.
El Jordán had a Mother’s Day tea on May 25th
(Mother’s Day here is May 27th). Jess helped
with decorating and serving, and Sam helped
to entertain the kids. Watching the women
laugh and forget about their worries for an
afternoon was a special experience.
Our biggest fear was that we would not be
useful here. We’ve been happy to find that
many of our skills match up well with what
El Jordán needs. We’ve been doing some odd
jobs as well, like building doll chairs, cleaning,
and helping butcher chickens (Sam) and
making cards, proofreading, and decorating

Our Family

Partner with Us

Thank you for praying for us during our travels
and as we started our work in Bolivia. As many
of you know, our visas came in the mail the day
before we left! Praise God.

Thanks to everyone who has prayed for
and donated towards this ministry. Since
we are fully funded, additional donations
would cover work funds and projects here
in Santa Cruz, as well as any unexpected
costs. Donations may be sent to:

Our plane rides went really smoothly, we’ve been
pretty healthy and we’re settling into our routine.
We’re living on the top (fourth) floor of
El Jordán, in a nice 2-bedroom apartment.
Last week we found a little street kitten in the
road and took it home.
Miles named him
“Orange” and he lives with us.
Miles plays with the other kids that are here
while their mothers are in class some days, and
some days he hangs around with whatever we
are doing.

Sam & Jess Ehlers

Sam has been practising his Spanish as much as
possible, and Jess is starting tutoring later this
We’re finding our way around the city, and Sam
has bought a bike for transportation. The bugs
are not as bad as we expected (though some are
really big). The air is thicker, and the weather
has been mainly in the high 20’s and humid. We
are heading into the cold season.

Please pray…
We’re glad to be here and so far everything is
going pretty smoothly!
For our adjustment to the Bolivian schedule –
work from 8-12:00, then from 2:30-6:30.
That our Spanish will continue to improve.

For the entire law is fulfilled
neighbour as yourself.”
Galatians 5:14
