The Amistad Bolivian Mission

The Amistad Orphanage and Hospitality Center in Cochabamba, Bolivia continues to thrive since its founding by the New York Fellowship in 1985. Ten orphanage homes, housing 10 children each, have been built to date in Amistad Children's Villa. In addition, a clinic, school, and nursery facility in the remote Andes Mountain village of Aramasi continues to improve the lives of Quechua Indians. This Amistad facility serves as the only medical outpost covering a vast territory of the Bolivian Andes Mountains. The first medical school in Bolivia opened in recent years, as a direct result of initiatives through the Amistad Mission.

History


The New York Fellowship began with a group of businessmen meeting together for mutual spiritual encouragement. It was incorporated in 1984, adding a full time Executive Director, B.J. Weber, in response to executives who wanted to create a more visible Biblical presence in the Wall Street area.


 A core group of friends and volunteers continue to meet regularly and share their expertise and time, which over the years has resulted in countless initiatives throughout the New York City area and beyond, including: spiritual support to professionals; small group studies; chaplaincy to the New York professional sports teams; outreach to foreign diplomats, government leaders and NYC firefighters; grief counseling in the wake of 9-11; speaker series/special events; and internship programs for young college age men and women who desire spiritual mentoring and service to the poor.


Works of service have included outreach to at-risk inner city youth, a Kids to Camp scholarship program, feeding and housing services for the homeless, a marriage seminar series, a crisis pregnancy service, and the founding of a clinic and orphanage in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
