Blackshear Place Baptist Church youth minister to children in Bolivia
Teenagers spend spring break in South American country teaching English, sharing the Gospels
About 19 high school students and leaders from Blackshear Place Baptist Church are about to set off on a mission trip to Bolivia. The teenagers volunteered to spend their weeklong spring break ministering to adults and children in the South American country.
While some high school students spent their spring break at home or at a beach, a handful of youth from Blackshear Place Baptist Church in Flowery Branch traveled all the way to Bolivia on a mission. Richi Boullon, a faith-based missionary with Helping Hands Foreign Missions in Buford and a member of Blackshear Place, said every year the church offers its youth a chance to “give back and serve the Lord.” Madison Hughes was one of the 19 high school students who jumped at the chance to travel to South America.
