LIFE International ministry partners, Centro de Vida, in Santa Cruz, Bolivia organized an exciting event this July called Cocinando por la Vida, or Cooking for Life!
Professional chefs and other Santa Cruz celebrities were invited to partner with someone to cook on the special night. All of them accepted the challenge! Not only did they cook, they sold tickets to their friends! Some even asked to participate in the next Cocinando por la Vida.
Hotel Cortez, a 4-star hotel in the city, donated a space, equipment, and staff to serve people! Centro de Vida also received a donation of drinks from Coca-Cola, delivering more than twice their normal gift amount to non-profits.
One of the chefs invited to participate is a television show host, and the media coverage she gave for the event contributed to its success.
All of the donations and the participation of Centro de Vida's staff and volunteers has contributed to the opportunity to share with people who need to hear about Christ, and in reaching potential volunteers and giving partners.
