SUE’s ministry in Costa Rica is two-pronged. She works with the Baptist Federation to strengthen the ministries of churches and their pastors by teaching classes, Bible studies and workshops. Sue is a liaison with American Baptist mission teams that visit Costa Rica to develop fraternal relationships and assist with ministry projects. She also works with Nicaraguan immigrant women, many of whom are dealing with situations of domestic violence, at the same time they are starting over again in a new country. Sue provides assistance with issues such as legalizing their status, housing, skill-training and education as well as providing emotional and spiritual support for these women and their children.
