Bolivia Interview: Kim Aycock and Juan Pettis

KIM AYCOCK, thank you for sharing—I have enjoyed watching God work and move in your life on this trip! What an amazing GOD we serve!

P9050346How did you feel in preparing for this trip? 

Nervous, excited—and I couldn’t wait to see what God as going to do and expected it to be a life changing experience.

What was the first thing that made an impact on you?

The filth in the city.

What have you experienced that has been life changing for you?

The people at the church we went to were so loving, and worshipped God without hindrance.  The children have been a blessing—excited about every little thing, smiles all over!  Another thing was the handing out of tracks at night—it was so rewarding!  One man was in his car and was speaking Spanish to me and I said, “No hablo…”, he pointed his finger toward heaven and said, “Christo Christo”! 

I wanted to jump u and down right there on the sidewalk!

Do you feel God targeting any area of your life through this trip?P9060697

My worship to Him should be without hindrance.  He has taught me that though we may look different on the outside, we are the same on the inside and worship the same God.  I feel that God called me to minister to girls of all ages and I want to obey that calling.

What is the best or worst think so far?

BEST:  Ministering and playing with the children.  Worst:  The driving and the language barrier.

What would you say to someone undecided about missions trips?

To go go go! There is so much to learn from other cultures and the people are desperate for a little love and affection.  And that is something we all have to give.

How has this affected your perception of a missionary?

I have watched Brother Mike and how he fits in so easily with the people, he easily ministers to them and they love him.  Missionaries are a necessity!! To every tongue—every nation!

Kim and KaraHow do you apply the Great Commission in your life?

I do feel called to still to minister to children and to tell and lead them to Christ.  I want to work on that area of my life at church and in the community.

Would you go again?

YES! Definitely!!

JUAN PETTIS (John Pettis)

How did you feel in preparing for this trip?John is standing in the door way of the church

Fearful and nervous at first, and then realized God is in this—so what could come against us!  I was also very excited!

What was the first thing that made an impact on you?

The people accepting the Word through passing out tracks,  The people would actually read what was given to them and then pass it on to someone else.

What have you experienced that has been life changing for you?

That no matter how rich or poor, simple or complex, each person is in this crazy world, God has a plan for YOU.  Bolivia is poor and simple, but they have taught me the sincerity in Christ.

Being more dedicated to His service instead of just living a Christian life.

What is the best or worst think so far?

Christian fellowship with our group as well as the locals has been the best.  The worst was the plane ride.

What would you say to someone undecided about missions trips?

Do it!  By far the best experience of my life.  It has and continues to strengthen my faith and Christian walk.

How has this affected your perception of a missionary?

I now know it is very hard work.  A missionary is very blessed to have this calling on his/her life.  It is very rewarding.

How do you apply the Great Commission in your life?

P9060740I am blessed to work in an awesome mission field at home and witness everyday in some way to someone.

Would you go again?

 Si, Senora.
