Over the last few weeks we have taken 2 trips exploring the roads and communities near the areas we are trying to reach. The first was to the community of Independencia. We had such high hopes that this would be the place we could live while searching for land to build an operational base. It was a cute little town. Road access was decent. But the travel time to any major cities is too long.
Our second trip focused around a small town named Morochata. This town is only 2 1/2 hours northwest of Cochabamba. Road access is great. It is settled on the side of a beautiful valley. We spent 2 days exploring the valleys surrounding this community, evaluating the weather, getting the lay of the land, and analyzing accessibility. It was a very enlightening trip.
One blessing God shared with us was meeting with the mother of one of Chris's high-school friends. Our family spent Sabbath afternoon relaxing at a house she owns in Vinto, near the Universidad Adventista. By the end of the trip, we felt God compelling us to move to Vinto and rent her house. We had been praying to find a place to move to closer to the mountains we are searching to base in.
Until now, the team has been sharing Sammy, the Toyota FJ40. But we are finding that to continue moving forward, our family will need a vehicle. We have not placed an exact number on how much money we need, but God has placed on the hearts of some generous donors to match donations toward the purchase of a vehicle for our family. This donor will match the first $1500 donated before April 30 this year.
We have seen God's generosity toward us as our monthly support has increased steadily. We know God is planning to use us here. We ask you, our friends, family, and supporters, to please pray about how God is leading you to be involved in this project.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as we can when we return to the US in June and July. We have already booked to be at the Upper Columbia Conference Campmeeting in Spangle, WA. and have plans to be at Central California Campmeeting as well. Of course we will also visit family and friends in Minnesota. We will post our itenerary as soon as it is completed.
Much love and prayers from the Eno family.
La Paz, Bolivia.
