Fellowship through Prayer

Each morning, the children of the Villa begin their day with a spiritual reflection in the chapel, where they give thanks for their home in the Villa and for the many friends in the States who guard them in prayer. It is a daily ritual that helps the children remember that God’s love is always present in their lives. Even though they have experienced a myriad of difficulties, faith in God gives them strength to create a new beginning. One of the most meaningful ways that you can help these children is through prayer.

We invite you to join in our community of prayer and develop a meaningful spiritual bond with Amistad. Each of the children, adolescents, youth, young adults, mamás, tías, and staff members benefit from the presence of a prayer friend in the States. It is a great comfort for them to know that there are individuals, families, and prayer groups who ask God for their well-being and growth in a loving environment. If you feel called to be a part of this fellowship, we welcome your involvement.

We have established a Prayer Friends Program that facilitates this relationship between Amistad in Bolivia and supporters in the States. Prayer friends send cards, letters, and pictures to their counterparts in Bolivia several times a year. This correspondence is a treasured and lasting reminder of the bond shared between prayer friends. The children of the Villa keep albums of all the letters, cards, and pictures they receive and are proud to show them off to visitors. In turn, correspondence from the children and others is sent back to the States, so that you too may feel connected to your prayer friend’s life.

If you would like more information about the Prayer Friends Program and want to learn how to become involved, please contact the Amistad Mission's Executive Director, Chris King, at cking@amistadmission.org.

May God bless you and your prayer friend on your journey!
