FRIDLA went into Bolivia in 2001 through COICOM and their "Plan 1000 Days" (a plan to win the country for Christ in 1000 days). In 2002 we disability awareness training in Santa Cruz. FRIDLA has established a partner organization (Corazones en Marcha de Bolivia – COMARBOL) based in Santa Cruz. There are churches, trained leaders and volunteers involved in doing ministry in several areas of the country. COMARBOL is working in Santa Cruz, Trinidad, Santa Ana de Yacuma, Oruro, El Torno, Montero, La Paz and Cochabamba.
The Ministry began in Santiago in 1996. Since this was the first country, many changes have been taken place over the years. The established ministry partner is CORCADIS and is based in the Santiago Metropolitan area.
Peru was first opened in 1999, and we worked in Lima and Arequipa until 2002. We reentered Peru with a new initiative in 2010. We are currently working in the southern part called Tacna. It is just 15 miles from the Chilean border.
We began to pray for God to open a door for us to take the ministry into Uruguay in 2000. He opened the door in 2007 and we shipped the first container in 2009. We are currently working in three States (Intendencias). They are Durazno, Florida, Flores and the cities of Paso de los Toros and Sarandi del Yi.
