For over two decades, we have been honored to be a part of the Word Made Flesh community. We’re grateful for the deep and meaningful foundation they laid for us.  Word Made Flesh taught us the importance of deep identification with those on the margins, living in poverty. We learned to be shaped by our […]

My Special Place

I didn´t know that a place as special as the “House of Hope” existed. I´m not exaggerating when I say that this place is magnificent. This place not only managed to change the way I think but also my way of acting. I really don´t know how to express myself well, I can´t get the […]

On Christmas: Darkest Night of the Year

Darkest Night of the Year. It’s the title of Over the Rhine’s Christmas album, but the words themselves seem to be the mantra to which I walk as I pass in and out of brothel doors. Every time I enter these places, I have let my eyes adjust to the dim red glow of the […]

Learning As We Go

Learning As We Go   Within mission work, all of our fields have had their ebbs and flows of learning effective ministry and mission tools and tricks. From saying the wrong things to practicing ineffective missional practices, we have definitely fallen short. It’s no surprise that we fall short, Romans 3:23 tells us “for all […]

Abundant Life: A life free of family violence

As the pandemic turned all of our lives upside down, we suddenly found ourselves at home every day, using our 220 sq. ft., two-bedroom apartment for two jobs, virtual preschool, and everything else already related to home.  Though difficult some days, we were able to adjust as a family and in general enjoy some extra […]

Humility when Tensions are High (As Featured in The Cry)

Last fall, Bolivia experienced significant political instability throughout the country and in areas where our WMF staff reside. Some community members evacuated as we experienced weeks of national protests, blockades and riots regarding socialist president Evo Morales and his continuance of power for an unconstitutional 4th term. Chaos and division grew as protests became increasingly […]

The Long Haul

Sometimes healing takes a while.    This is certainly true for women who have been prostituted.    It takes a woman, on average, seven attempts to successfully leave commercial sexual exploitation. Her journey often won’t follow a linear path. She may take many steps backwards on her journey forward.    That’s why Word Made Flesh […]
