My name is Eugene Du Plessis. I’m a South African-born Bolivian national. I’m married to Veronica, a Bolivian. We have been married for 7 years. We have two children Jonathan, 6, and Isabella, 2-years old.
I’m a Bible and Worldview teacher at Carachipampa Christian School in Cochabamba Bolivia. I’m also a secretary and the sports coordinator of the Foundation, LLAMA2. I run a small sports ministry through our local church called Dios en Cristo. It uses Floorball, Futsal (indoor soccer), and Basketball to show God’s love, drawing children into the local evangelical church through friendship. We focus on children between the ages of 6 to 15 years of age. I’m hoping to expand this ministry, using the same formula to help other evangelical churches to grow in Cochabamba.
Veronica is the director of the Foundation, LLAMA2, and her ministry focuses on sexual abuse awareness and prevention in schools, organizations and churches through workshops and trainings. Veronica has been doing this for more than 15 years. She was also a Children’s missionary in Brighton England with Brighton City Missions in 2008. Her Dream is to set up a support network of doctors, lawyers and psychologists to help girls and ladies overcome and recover from the abuse they have suffered using the love of Christ as the key to all healing.
Jonathan is in grade 1 at Carachipampa and Isabella is a thriving toddler.
