After serving in Bolivia for decades, Lonnie & Ruth Hodge have suddenly been thrust into unexpected ministries. Lonnie began discipling a soccer coach. That resulted in weekly Bible studies with the entire soccer team. Many of the players have trusted in Christ for salvation.
At the same time, the Hodges have been “pushed” into leading a brand new church in Cochabamba. The soccer team players began attending services. Recently Lonnie had the privilege of baptizing the coach and nine members of the soccer team.
Since the baptism, another soccer player has also expressed a desire to follow the Lord in baptism!
Can God use a missionary over the age of 70? Absolutely!
