Welcome to Bolivia, the landlocked "heart" of South America whose windswept Altiplano highlands and steamy eastern lowlands are home to some of South America's most indigenous cultures. More than half the population still practices traditional Inca and Aymara religion which is often mingled with Catholicism. Bolivia is one of the countries in South America least influenced by Protestant Christianity. George Allan, the founder of our mission, entered Bolivia in 1902 and founded the Bolivian Indian Mission in 1907. Today we minister with a number of church groups and organizations, including the large and vibrant Unión Cristiana Evangélica.
