Holly Starkmann is going on a missions trip to Bolivia!

Hola mis amigos y familia,

I have been given a really great opportunity and I’m writing you to tell you about it. In June, I’m so blessed to say that I’m going to Bolivia! I had planned on going last year but I didn’t feel the time was right. This year, God has really been leading me towards Bolivia, so I’ve prayerfully decided to go and I’m so excited!
I’ll be going to a town called “Postrervalle” which is 6 hours from the main city of Santa Cruz. In this mountain town there’s a boarding school named “Emanuel Internado”. I will be staying there to help Spanish speaking kids in grades K-9. There I will tutor the kids, do Bible devotions with them, watch them, and play with them.

This opportunity is especially exciting because I love Spanish. I will be there the entire month of June. Having the chance to be there for a month will help my fluency in the language and help me to get familiar with the culture. Most importantly though, it will help me get to know more about God and his people.

The trip is going to be hard. I’ll be in an all Spanish speaking country working with some very broken kids. Please, remember me in your prayers. Pray that I will listen to the Lord on this trip and that I may learn, above all things, more about Jesus. Pray also that I may raise the money to cover my expenses. The total cost is $3,000 and I need this money by June 1st.

More than anything I would like you to pray for me. This is worth more than any amount of money. If you do decide to financially support my trip please pray also. I would use your support in both prayer and finances.

Thank you for taking time to read this long letter! No matter what you give, you’ll be in my prayers here and in Bolivia. You will also be receiving pictures and a letter after I get back in July. I pray God’s love and grace is with you always!

Un sirviente de Cristo,

(A servant of Christ,)
