SAM Prayer Spotlight 12/14/17- Jason and Jenna Weigner

The Weigners serve together in Bolivia. They strengthen the church through community development, discipleship and medical ministry. Jason and Jenna are part of SAM Bolivia’s Indigenous Rural Outreach team, which works to develop leaders for the Bolivian indigenous church, and to foster the well-being and sustain the livelihoods of those living in difficult economic and social situations.

Jason is an agronomist and Jenna a mid-wife, together they build sustainable, gospel-centered communities among the indigenous and rural peoples of eastern Bolivia.

Here is something we can be praying for the Weigners about:

    • They are still waiting their birth certificates to finish going through the legal process in the states so they can be returned to Bolivia and complete the visa process there.  Due to multiple delays they are several months behind in the process which is hindering their work since all their Bolivian documents are expired. Pray that God would work out all the details for this process to be completed.
Please pray for the Weigners and send them an ( email only visible in original item ) of encouragement.

SAM Prayer Spotlight 12/12/17- Serina Klotz

The Lord led Serina to South America Mission where she desired to be a part of SAM’s loving community. She joined SAM in 2017 and caught its vision for creating dynamic churches. As the Lord leads her to Bolivia, she is excited to use all she has learned to help grow children’s ministries across Santa Cruz so that children can come to know Christ at a young age, as she did and live their whole lives for Him. Her greatest joy has been seeing children learn what it means to follow Jesus and watch them share the Gospel with those around them.

Here are some things we can be praying with Serina about:

  • Praise the Lord for being fully funded and set to head to Bolivia in January.
  • Pray for the transition process for both her and the team in Bolivia as they work out logistics and what her role will be.
