BOLIVIA SOUTH AMERICA
Adalid Pardo and his wife Cira are Bolivian nationals with a heart for missions. Even though they are nationals, Adalid does not consider himself a national pastor, but rather a church planting missionary to their own people. Since 2001, the Pardos have started 4 churches, three of which are now autonomous. They have assisted in the establishing at least 3 other churches in Bolivia and another in Argentina.
Adalid serves as the ABMI director of our Bolivian mission. The Bolivian mission provides legal representation for churches before the government. We currently have 16 independent churches that are represented by this mission. This sort of legal representation is required for all missionaries who desire to enter and work in Bolivia.
Adalid and Cira have been married since 1991. They have 3 children: Bryan, Benji and Becky
