The mission of planting the church of Christ in Cochabamba, Bolivia began en January of 2006. The Austin Ave. Church of Christ sent the Bull, Custer, Forbess and Marcum families together with Trish and I to begin this awesome work.
Currently, the Iglesia de Cristo - Cochabamba Centro meets in it's own facility in downtown Cochabamba. We lead many weekly activities for the local church.
In January of 2014, "Iglesia de Cristo-Villa Pagador" began meeting in their own facility. Since then, most of our time has been spent laying foundations of faith and leadership development.
In March of 2014 Trish and I began visiting the small church in Trinidad, Beni, assisting them to develop and grow.
In January of 2016, The Caleb Mission arrived in Cochabamba and shortly thereafter planted the Tiquipaya Church of Christ.
Trish and I have been on the mission field for 28 years. We arrived in Santiago, Chile on April 10th 1990 together with our children, Denice and JD where were served for 3 years with the Bowen family. Since then we have served in Mendoza, Argentina; Viña del Mar, Chile together with Tom and Pam Hook; and now in Cochabamba, Bolivia. We also served as the visiting missionaries at Harding University during the 2004/05 school year.
We hope you enjoy reading about our family and the work God has brought us into. We are truly blessed to be a part of His mission.
Butch and Trish
