To Read Our Statement of Faith
The Cochabamba Christian Complex has become a lighthouse of truth to the poorest country in South America. The small Andean country of Bolivia has long been mired in paganism. The official god (or more correctly goddess) of Bolivia is Pachamama (the fertility goddess of the ancient Incan Empire, now widely regarded as “mother earth”).
In 2003 Helping Hands partnered with “Word of Life” (Palabra De Vida) ministries in Bolivia. The primary focus of Word of Life is to evangelize young people, then disciple these new converts. Together, Helping Hands and Word of Life began planning a Christian complex where young people could come to sports camps and hear about Jesus Christ. In 2005, Helping Hands purchased 60 acres of land and began construction of the complex.
Since 2005, about 100,000 people have used the complex, and more than 11,000 have accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior!
Today, the Christian complex consists of missionary housing for over 50 missionaries and their families, apartments for single missionaries, a mission volunteer house, a gymnasium, an auditorium, a Christian school, a two year Bible training center, and enough bunk space to house up to 800 campers.
