In June 2005 Bolivia was falling apart and on the brink of a major conflict between the Western and the Eastern regions. Mission organisations were recalling some of their people. In such situations foreign visitors normally cancel their trips to Bolivia, so Raphael Samuel who pastors the church emailed to say that he would understand if Paul and Jeff from SAMS Ireland cancelled their planned trip.
However in an act of faith; Paul and Jeff chose to swim against the tide and go to Bolivia! Their visit was crucial because it was an encouragement and a clear sign from the Lord that He was not pulling out of His work. He was still sending people in the midst of difficult of conditions to prove a point.
