A very blessed and happy New Year to all! At FMS we’re excited for the year 2010 because it marks our 20th Anniversary. The first class of lay missioners went overseas in 1990.

20 years later, the 25th class of lay missioners is departing for Bolivia. They’ll be attending language school in Cochabamba for the first several months and then moving on to their service locations. Please pray for them, and keep in touch with them through their blogs, listed on the right.
Also, if you have time, check out this short video on the Franciscan missions in Eastern Bolivia, the area of the old Jesuit missions (the movie, The Mission, anyone?).
