Bolivia
April / Men's Motorcycle / Agua Yaku

4/5/19 - 4/14/19

What’s more epic than a motorcycle ride in South America? Being part of a band of brothers doing Kingdom work at the same time! Guys, saddle up and embark on a moto tour that will change your life and give you the chance to serve others! Our ministry partner Agua Yaku will lead you into rural territories on bikes that have both on and off road capability (yes you will get very dusty & dirty!). Each day will have a new destination where you will distribute water filters, teach people about clean water hygiene, and share the Gospel.

To join in this adventure, you need at least intermediate experience and skill on a motorcycle; the rides will be on and off road, sometimes over difficult terrain. If you sponsor a child in Bolivia through Compassion International, you will also have the chance to meet your child and spend a fun day with him or her...an amazing experience in itself!

What is the travel like?

You will fly on commercial airlines, most likely a mixture of American, United, and possibly the Panamanian airline Copa. It takes a full day to get there with several plane changes, sometimes overnight. Once we are in Bolivia, we get around in private hired buses (sometimes with AC, sometimes not), and you get to experience traffic and driving WAY more haphazard than L.A. or New York!

AGUA YAKU

Crossroads members Danny & Vanessa Beams moved to Bolivia over ten years ago to go into full time ministry there. Danny established Agua Yaku with the mission of bringing clean water to people in some of the most remote areas of the country through well drilling, water filter distribution, and clean water education, all while sharing the Gospel. He regularly takes teams from all over North America to rural areas where they serve others, bond as a team, and share the Good News.

Compassion International

At Crossroads, we’re seriously committed to Compassion International and the child-advocacy work they so passionately undertake. Their work releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult. Sponsoring a child is a huge part of this work, and so is visiting your child and taking that relationship to a whole new level.
