In March 2006 the NPUC sent 94 short-term missionaries to assist with reaping meetings in Santa Cruz, Bolivia (photo gallery at http://www.ub.org.bo/index.php?option=com_zoom&Itemid=131&catid=3&PageNo=1). The entire country had three Harvest Cycles this year, with tremendous results.
We recently received this report from Françoise Monnier, the wife of the Bolivian Union President— Let me give you great news: We had in September our last evangelistic campaign by satellite with Pr. Alejandro Bullón, the evangelist of the South American Division; and, on September 30th, the Bolivian Union reached the number of 20,162 baptisms. Praise the Lord. For the first time, our union passes the 20,000 line. We are very happy. You are a very important part of this result and we want to thank you for the amazing participation of your entire group in reaching this goal. Thanks a million.
This means in 2006 one new Adventist joined this movement in Bolivia for every nine previous Adventists. They have found some very effective ways to mobilize their church members in regular, repeated soul winning.
