The shoe shiners in La Paz, Bolivia, wear ski masks out of shame for the work they do. The world has given up on them, but God has not forgotten them. Kayuparu has been reaching marginalized shoe shiners of La Paz with the Gospel through sports, backpacking, Bible studies, English clubs, and much more. Kayuparu means "at His feet" in the Aymara language. It can also be translated "at their feet." We minister at their feet in order to bring them to His feet.
The vision of Kayuparu is to plant a church that humbly invites shoe shiners to meet Jesus, disciples them, and sends them courageously back out into the world with Jesus at their side. The work is difficult, and our church plant team needs additional missionaries to "hit the streets" evangelizing, discipling, and preparing shoe shiners to open a church that specializes in calling shoe shiners to follow the Great Commandment and join the Church in the Great Commission.
