Boyuibe BAZAAR

The leaders of the young people’s Saturday meetings have done Bazaars (sale of second-hand cloths and different accessories) as a fundraiser activity to help various needs of the church. This time 8 of us went to Boyuibe, a nearby village with an estimated population of 3,075 people and located in the very dry land of the Chaco (dessert-like territory of Bolivia).

Most of the items were 1 peso (0.14 US Dollar) and the most expensive clothing was 5 pesos (0.74 US Dollar). At the end we collected $68.ºº which will go to the YP’s charity fund. The monetary profit wasn’t as high as other times, but our trip was more profitable in the area of support to the cold, almost dying church. We had an outdoor movie Saturday night with good attendance of children and young adults standing in front of the street, we celebrated the Lord’s Supper, taught Sunday School class and fellowship together. The encouragement was mutual and such intangible gain has no price.
