Through CBM, we get the chance to work with some pretty incredible people. People like our colleague Patty Nacho. Patty, a Bolivian, has been working as the Short-Term Missions (STM) Coordinator for CBM in Bolivia since 2015. Her role involves supporting STM teams and individuals as they prepare for their trip, arranging activities and logistics within Bolivia, and serving as a cultural guide and mentor for Canadians throughout their STM experience. Patty brings an impressive level of organizational and professional competency and pairs it with a genuine enthusiasm for her work. We love Patty.
- What do you enjoy most about your position as
the STM coordinator for CBM in Bolivia?
- What are some of the things you can expect to do
if you come on an STM with CBM to Bolivia?
We also intentionally expose teams to different projects and work to match the teams’ skills with their activities. By participating in different projects, our volunteers have a broader understanding of our ministry in Bolivia.
- What is something about Bolivia that you are
always excited to share with visitors?
- Have you learned anything new about Bolivians through your work?
- What is your favourite Bolivian food that you wish everyone could try?
