Steve Gibson - Back from Bolivia

From Steve Gibson’s Facebook account relating to his trip to Bolivia     Jan 23  Sad news from Bolivia, my counterpart's Mom Viki Ramirez passed away Sat. night. She was a true inspiration to many volunteers from US that traveled to Cochabamba. Her love for the people in the rural areas inspired me. She of course lives on in Heaven but also here on earth because the example she showed to all by making the world a better place. I can still see her speaking to the rural children in Quechua as we gave out the bags of school and family health items.
