frequently asked questions

What kind of work will you be doing in Bolivia?
-Initially we will be partnering with a local church called Cochabamba International Church – CIC (which is a bi-lingual Bolivian church with many people from different nationalities) and helping serve with the student and music ministries. Three main areas of focus for the first 2 yrs. will be:
1) Culture adjustment - (finding a home and getting settled, learning the ways and processes of Bolivia)
2) Spanish language study (initially in formal classes, possibly private tutors later on)
3) Building relationships

How much does it cost to live there?
-The exchange rate is 7 to 1 from the Bolivian dollar to our dollar. In general, the cost of living is lower than in the states. The dollar goes a long way here, which is a blessing. However, not everything is cheaper! Some things are equal to or more than the states,  some things are significantly cheaper. Here are a few stats just to give you an idea of how much things cost:
Rent for our 3 story, 5 bedroom home = $450/month (significantly less!)
Groceries for a week = $200 (about the same)
Gasoline = $1.50 per gallon (an estimate....significantly less!)
Eating out at a family mid-range restaurant (modern American style) = about $30
Eating out at a Bolivian "fast food" restaurant = $10
A movie ticket = $3.50 per person
