Colombia Update #2

2018-03-27

Our daughter Emily has been blessed with tremendous opportunities to see God at work all over the world. One of her favorite countries is Guatemala. She’s been there quite a few times and has served for several months at a wonderful orphanage called Casa Bernabé.

She has also questioned/nagged/rebuked me on many occasions saying, “Why isn’t Walk Thru the Bible active in Guatemala? They really need what y’all do.”

Well Emily, God has answered your prayers at last.

2018 03 27 image 01Meet Marco and Maria Elizabeth Bocaletti. They live in beautiful Antigua Guatemala, where they both serve as medical doctors. Marco is a GP and Maria Elizabeth is an OB/GYN. They also pastor three churches in their area, modeling God’s heart for both physical and spiritual needs.

They were introduced to Walk Thru the Bible (Caminata Biblica as it’s known in Latin America) several years ago by our regional director, Alejandro Oviedo, who lives in neighboring Honduras.

In Marco’s words, “It was love at first sight.” Maria Elizabeth adds “We knew immediately that God had sewn our hearts together with Caminata Biblica.”

Meeting them and watching their passion for our new course, Revolution, has been one of the highlights of this trip. I have no idea how they’ll find the time to build our ministry in Guatemala, but I’m confident they’ll find a way.

We tend to look for potential leaders with plenty of time available to partner with us. That’s solid logic. But sometimes the busiest candidates turn out to be the best choice because they have a proven track record of getting things done. Dr. and Dr. Bocaletti are the poster kids for this phenomenon.

Marco and Maria Elizabeth asked me to thank you for making this week of training possible. They also asked me to invite you to visit them in Antigua. They’d love to meet you face to face, even if you’re feeling perfectly healthy that day!

Latin America Yes No   Phil, great to get together this AM to share what we believe God put on our hearts. We have never been attracted to Latin America, but if things progress into action we'll probably receive a great blessing in another part of the world.
