    This Mennonite mission in Mińsk Mazowiecki is the successor to a defunct Amish or Beachy Amish mission effort that used to be called “Salt and Light.”

    In 1996 we purchased “Friends Patterns” from a family living in Scottville KY. They were moving to Bolivia with a number of other families. This was an Old Order Mennonite community and a number of them had been raised in that group but also were influenced by the Charity group. This particular family returned to the States, but I believe a number of families did stay in Bolivia. I am wondering if this might be part of that group.

    I remember my friends in Belgium (Amish Beachy missionnaries) speaking of an Amish family refusing to go back in the States… They thought that maybe that family choosing to stay far from their community… Anyway, it is quite sad to see them so alone. They should be with a church.

    Amish and Mennonites in Latin and South America

    As much as the Amish ‘stick out’ in America, they just seem that much more anomalous in foreign countries. The OOMs in South America have always fascinated me–ultra-conservative clothing, horse-drawn travel and Old German culture thrown into hot Latin climes just seem a very odd mix. Old Order Amish made a couple go’s at it down south in the 60’s and 70’s as well, but the communities did not survive (at least not as OOA).

    Emma, it does seem like it would be hard to exist without others. An Amish family alone just seems a bit oxymoronic.

    Mike, thanks for the link, very interesting.

    Concerning the Beachy in Belgium

    Dear people,
    I finally received an anwser to my questions, via the Mennonite Center of Brussels. The Paul Yoder’s family came back to the USA in 2008.
    It’s sad to say, but there is no more Beachy or tother Amish in Belgium…

    Have yourself a merry Christmas,
